COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Nearly solid black in color, this is a full-flavored complex brew of roasted barley, sugar and a hint of honey. Once poured, the smoky aroma melds nicely with the creamy head for a beer drinking experience not for the timid. Brewed at Sudwerk for ReaperAle.

nuplastikk (4133) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 6, 2009
500ml bottle. Opaque black pour with a thick beige head. Sweet pungent dark fruit aroma. Certainly falls into the Milk Stout/Foreign Stout category. Sugary, with lots of sweet chocolate tones. Really well done for the style. The alcohol level is such that it gives it a nice medium to full body, while retaining a nice semblance of drinkability. The hops perfectly balance the sweet brown sugar flavors. Excellent beer.

kidmartinek (3314) - austin, Texas, USA - DEC 19, 2009
Pours black with brown accents. Frothy tan head welcomes the first few sips. I’m going to be subtle here now. The nose is complex, smooth malt, mineral, and chocolate. It tastes like a milky malt with a hoppy finish and a hint of honey. The palate is incredibly smooth. It leaves lacing on the glass that’s enough to look at. Now on the sandy side of heaven won’t you take me home.

Bottled 65cl @MC
Dark black-brown color, small beige-brown head. Blackcurrant, licorice, oak, medicinal aroma. A bit sour, some vinegar, licorice, some wood. Feels a bit infected. Lingering balsamico in the aftertaste.

Poured a nice black. First sips were heavy with lactic acid, but that quickly and thankfully faded rather quickly turning into a passable, enjoyable stout.

Mora2000 (5358) - McKinney, Texas, USA - JAN 11, 2010
Pours dark black with a tan head. Smell is lots of roasty malt, with a little dark fruit. Flavor is more roasted malt, with a strong roasted aftertaste. There is a little bit of chocolate in the taste as well. Not a very complex beer, but enjoyable none the less. Recommended.

Frank (2392) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JAN 1, 2010
An interesting and complex beer that somehow misses the mark. Black w/ a pale tan head of fine bubbles which quickly dissipates. Nose is tart and slightly fruity w/ the expected whiff of roasted grains. Flavor too is slightly tart, mildly sweet and fruity. Light mouthfeel (for a big stout) and prickly carbonation. I am not quite sure to make of this, w/ the fruity and coffee overtones it reminds me somewhat of a raspberry chocolate candy but the balance is slightly off.

Miksu (4830) - Jyväskylä, FINLAND - JAN 13, 2010
0.65 l bottle at Monks Café Wallingatan, Stockholm. Black color. Roasty and berryish aroma with blueberry and red currant. Tastes old and stale but not in a completely bad way. There are woody, vinous, medicinal and berryish flavors, soya sauce, balsamic vinegar and red currants. Interesting but also controversial, not completely in balance. I’m sure not whether I like this or not.

fidelis83 (1827) - Clinton, Iowa, USA - JAN 17, 2010
Bomber via trade from BMan1113VR. Pours black with a 1-2 finger creamy light brown head that has good retention. Aroma is roast, light coffee, a hint of char, blueberry, toasted pine nuts, and what seems like a hint of lactose, reminds me a bit of Dark Horse Tres. Flavor is roast, stale/slightly burnt coffee, earthy/woody notes, more berry notes, and a touch of smoke. Palate is medium bodied with a slightly creamy, neutral entry, medium fairly sharp carbonation and slightly dry finish. Good stuff, fairly complex and relatively light on the palate

Bottle. Pours a black body with a small off white head. Aroma is mocha, fudge, coffee, some sweet aromas as well. Flavor is coffee, malty, slight smoke, hint of bitter, some off metallic flavor. Bubbly mouth.

michael-pollack (4960) - King of Prussia, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 15, 2009
22oz. Bottle: Aroma of roasted malt and slight Diacetyl. Poured black in color with a medium-sized, creamy, dense, brown head that diminished but lasted throughout. Opaque. Slightly sparkling. Flavor is light to medium sweet. Tastes of acetic acid, chocolate, coffee, roasted malts, slight cream, and more acetic acid. Light to medium body. Tingly texture. Average to lively carbonation. Acetic acid, chocolate, and roasted malt finish. Way too much acetic acid.
