Moderately sweet, slightly bitter flavour, just medium bodied, soft on carbon. Toasty malty and fruity taste with notes of chocolate; moderately dry, bitter-sweet and slightly toasty and a bit slim, slightly spicy finish.

bridge (659) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - DEC 8, 2007
Poured a cloudy deep brown with a thin beige head. Aroma of sticky sweet malt with a touch of spice. It’s very sweet, verging on cloying. In fact more than verging, it is cloying. Quite full bodied, but too sweet. Wouldn’t pick this as a stout.

thewolf (11493) - Kolding, DENMARK - NOV 7, 2007
Bottle @ Den Tatoverede Enke. Pours a non-seethrough deep brown with some sediment. Practically no head - what’s there disappears almost immediately. Aroma is sweet, lightly roasted caramel, prunes and plums. Lively carbonation. Complex flavour, first sweet with dried fruits, roasted malts and slight liqourice, then dry-ish with ashes and chocolate. Warmingly vinious aftertaste. Very Foreign Stout-ish. Nice!

Fin (8324) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - OCT 29, 2007
Bottle picked up from Utobeer at Borough Market, Southwark, London, 27-10-07 Pours dark brown with some red tinges and topped by an off-white head. Sweet malts on the nose, some yeast and spices. I was always going to find this one tricky after three premier league stouts at the tasting with Casey, Traci and Loz earlier in the afternoon, but this held up well and played to its strengths. Quite sweet but maybe there was a slightly salinity there, not as thin as I expected and really getting better as you take each sip.
