50 cl bottle @ home. Rated on 24.09.2009
Aroma has licorice, well roasted malt and coffee notes. Flavour has pleasant roastiness, licorice and some dark chocolate. Finishes with ash, coffee notes and hints of cocoa. Some may find the malt here way too roasted, but I seem to enjoy even this level of roastiness. Palate could be more rich though.

Very dark brown, with a small foamy light brown head. Aroma of dark malt and figs. Taste of roasted malt and licquorice with a hint of chocolate and a slightly nutty finish. A bit watery but tastes good.

Bottle that Justin shared - cheers! Dark reddish brown with a thin beige head. Roasted malt dominates with a little chocolate and smoke. OK stout, but rather thin and muted for the ABV.

Dark brown with red tinges and a small tan head. Chocolatey and slightly medicinal aroma with a hint of coffee. Fairly smooth taste with coffee, roasted malt and some plain chocolate notes. Not bad at all.

A bottle over a year past it’s best-by date. This is really quite nice. Soft in the mouth. Pitch black. Heavy roasting and low hoping. No real aroma. A beer for a dark cold night.
