2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle. [thanks Søren & Feldthaus]
Pours almost black with a big, staying, creamy, dark-beige head. Aroma has sweetness, some malts, lightly roasted and milky chocolate. Highish carbonation, fairly thin mouthfeel. Flavour is marred by a heavy metallic edge. There is a fair sweetness, but not much maltiness. Lightly roasted and dry in the finish. Just not a good stout.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 5/20
On first pouring this beer, it looked like it had potential - deep, dark ruby-black color with a maroon-colored head, lively but settled quickly. The aroma was pure caramel, not much else - first sign of trouble. The taste was so incredibly sweet that none of the reviewers could finish it. Nothing to balance the sweetness. Best skipped.

Very sweet, cidery, wine, sultanine and above all honey (may be acacia) taste.
Light brown foam, dark opaque color, cherries, sultanine, some note of vinegar in the nose.
A very nice disovery for a stout!

2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottled (Bs, bottled 10/2007).
Almost opaque brown color, huge cloudy tan head. Sour vinegar, saccarine and earth in the nose, some berries too. Very very sweet. Flavor is musty and it has saccarine, milk chocolate, mould, iron, plum. Foamy mouthfeel. Way too sweet to be enjoyable and also bottle was not in top condition.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. The aroma is malty, a sweet aroma of chocolate. The body is black. The beer has a very large creamy brown head with a long duration, reminds me of a chocolate pudding. It tasted also like a chocolate pudding, strange. The body is creamy with a soft carbonation and rather light.
