Dark Chocolate & Chiccory Coffee taste. Very low in carbination gives more depth to the flavor. Dry aftertaste. A wonderful beer, dark & flavorful, in a beautiful bottle.

(500ml Bottle. 03/2006) Some coffee aromas and hints of licorice. Inky black with a tiny brown head that disappears quickly. No film. No lace. Roasty, coffee flavors. Some hint of sourness on the back of the palate. Chocolate notes. Dry, bittersweet finish. Tasty.

porterhouse (1581) - Boothbay, Maine, USA - MAR 15, 2006
(500 ml bottle from <A HREF=http://www.ratebeer.com/Place/maine/freeport/ target=blank>Derosier’s) Pours a very dark coffee brown with a light brown head. Aroma is sweet with notes of coffee, sweet chocolate, maybe molasses. Some lacing. Taste is a blend of rich coffee and chocolate, a bit of prune juice, with a moderately bitter finish. Had a sort of sweet and sour quality that I wasn’t super fond of but still a quality stout. Mouthfeel fairly thick and smooth.

DonMagi (5595) - bantervile, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - MAR 13, 2006
Pours amazingly, beautiful black liquid with a rich brown head, which stays throughout. Aroma is roasted coffee malts with a little more grassy hops than expected. Taste is similar, though maybe a little thinner than expected, but dangerously drinkable. A decent beer and better than i expected from this brewery.

UPDATED: JAN 18, 2007 RE-RATE (1-18-2007): 1 pint, .9oz brown bottle from A-1 to-go. Black, almost completely opaque body with only feignt ruby-red high-lights around the edges - one of the darkest beers I’ve had. A really thin film of light tan head. Smells malty and roasty with a hint of banana or licorice? Tastes mostly like burnt malt, with a fair bit of sweetness, presumably from the cream. Mouthfeel is a bit lighter than expected, a bit aqueous, which helps the drinkability. But the burnt astringency kind of hurts it... Still this is quite a nice little stout. I could see myself getting this sometimes.

ruggedman (647) - Portland, Maine, USA - MAR 8, 2006
This is my old stand by. I can’t believe i haven’t rated this beer...I probably drink it more than any other. Anyway it’s got a great smooth creamy mouthfeel, a wonderful malty and coffee/chocolate aroma. The flavor is nice and dry...mildly sweet at first. Finishes better than most with a signiture bittersweet chocolate taste that lasts for just the right amount of time. Great beer.

Rune (9111) - Tromsø, NORWAY - MAR 8, 2006
500ml bottle bought at the heaven-on-earth-pub Jerusalem Tavern in London, March 2005. Very nice bottle design. Almost black on colour topped with an off-white foam. Roasted aroma. Smooth and easy drinkable. Medium mouthfeel. Black coffee notes. Pleasant warming finish with a chocolate touch to it (sampled with Finn, 27.01.2006)

I tasted a very nutty flavor, not so much of the coffee hints I’ve come to expect from stouts. It was a fairly smooth beer, and I liked it, but this is not a beer I will be making into one of my every-day type beers.

Flask shaped bottle. Reddish black body with a medium brown head. Aroma of bittersweet chocolate with notes of toasted malts and coffee. Flavor was similar, bittersweet chocolate dominates, but is nicely balanced with toasted malts, coffee and a nice hope bitterness. Palate seemed rather thin. I wanted a thicker, chewier mouthfeel to complement the excellent flavor.
