JorisPPattyn (8034) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - JAN 16, 2009
Medium, bright beige head, over black beer. Very nice coffee, or coffee-extract nose, bit smoked & resin, and sweet malt syrup underneath. Very much drop/liquorice flavour, some molasses, a bit of resiny flavour, and finishing a bit watery. Pretty sweet and a bit fizzy. Interesting, but rather weak finish.

Dark brown color, with a beige head, but falls quickly, sweet toasted, roasted malt, coffee, mochaish nose with a burnt fruity raisiny, plummy accent, with some chocolatey, molasses notes, within roasted coffe bean aroma follows though on a medium-bodied palate with a yeasty, fruity, chocolate, roasted malt character, with some dark chocolatey, burnt toast, fruity dried raisin, date flavors, with a nice black coffee, bitter black chocolate accent, leading towards a fruity, roasty, chocolatey buttery finish.

jimmack34 (640) - Lancaster, Ohio, USA - MAY 25, 2009
Bottle. Pours a dark brown with a very nice soap faom tan head. Smells sweet like dark fruit and sweet malt. Taste is alot better than the smell. Flavors of sweet fermented dark fruit at first, then a buttery, nutty taste, slight bitter roasty aftertaste. The more you drink, the better it gets. Tons of lacing. Aftertaste after a couple minutes is even a little smokey. Very nice complexity.

BroSpud (1741) - , Massachusetts, USA - JUN 3, 2009
Bottle. Very unique beer. Much thinner than a typical stout though it does pour a dark brown. Malty with a bitter after taste. Best thing about this one is the cool looking bottle.

ante (3374) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - NOV 12, 2003
Black with a small tan head. Nice aroma dark coffee, roasted coffee beans and milky chocolate. Smooth mouthfeel. Dark chocolate with some burnt notes, balanced with a milky smoothness. Long and smooth malty finish with a warming flavour.

larsniclas (5743) - Billdal, SWEDEN - NOV 16, 2003
Bottled. Black with a brown head. A burnt aroma with hints of prune. Rather smooth palate-feel and with a burnt flavour.

Silphium (3179) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - APR 21, 2004
Poured deep opaque chestnut brown with a medium tan head. Aroma of sweet chocolate, toast, and earthy hops. Flavor was a let-down; the individual components (sweet chocolate, toast, caramel, roast, and musty/earthy hops) were not well-blended. The sweetness became almost cloying after a few sips, and the occasional sharp roasted note seemed misplaced. The body was way too thin to carry these flavors, providing little in the way of mouthfeel. Disappointing.

DYCSoccer17 (3357) - Woodland, California, USA - MAY 13, 2004
Aroma is pretty grainy with hints of some chocolate malts. Pours the typical stout fare. Grainy, sweet to start, watery in the middle--too watery with smokiness to finish.

DavidP (1747) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 3, 2004
Black body with a ring of tan foam on top. Milk chocolate aroma with a touch of pear. The flavor starts with a dry graininess and continues with a latte sweetened with apple and chocolate. I detect some of the hops in the finish - sort of a sweet dandelion flavor. I think I would like this beer more if it had a more robust mouthfeel, but it’s good as it is.

omhper (19975) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - DEC 8, 2004
Bottled. Black, beige head. Coffee and licorice in the nose. Sweet and creamy, with molasses and chocolate. Salty bitterish finish. Not very complex. On surface it’s a wonderful beer, but if you dig deeper it appears to lack the finer details.
