bhensonb (10348) - Woodland, California, USA - JUN 14, 2009
Bottle from BevMo. Pours very black with a very large tan head. Aromas of chocolate and dark toast malt. Medium minus body with mild carbonation. Flavor is chocolate, coffee and really dark malt. A bit thin, but otherwise a good drink. Seems astringent, which might equate with dry. Pretty tasty, but not to die for. I’d pick it over quite a few others.

355ml bottle (Kitty’s, Helsinki) - shared by mjs - thanks
Nice fruity stout aroma, and a touch of rotting fruit too. Good roast stout, but a dry dry palate. Nice tingle, but too dry for me. A touch disappointing after the aroma.
