Not so much the stout that I am used to. It was very pleasant to drink. Not as heavy. In fact, I have had plenty of heavier porters. It was very good though. Just not expected.

JonR888710 (999) - Cochabamba, BOLIVIA - MAY 28, 2008
Medium mahogany brown body, very light tan-brown, buttery head. Aroma is fine ingredients, sugar, sweet grapes maybe, some tart, acidic notes. Taste is also sweet, well-proportioned with grapes, alcohol, dark honey/molasses and bitter hops, drying coffee-like. Smooth, almost oily on palate. A little too sweet, reminds me of a lot of the Russian/Eastern European porters lately, just with better hops. Not a stout at all. Average.

Pours a dark brown off-white head. Chocolate, coffee, sweet malt, and dark fruit. Flavors are a little bit lactic and finishes with some bitter hops.

thenick (766) - North Bellmore, New York, USA - MAY 4, 2008
Tap @ Blind Tiger. Pours a deep reddish-brown with a small off-white head. Aroma of malt, chocolate, coffee notes, and slight Belgian yeast. Taste is malt up front with chocolate and yeast notes, ending in a smooth and slightly coffee/woody aftertaste. Remains very smooth and drinkable throughout. I enjoyed this one.

Color: Burnt hazelnut with amber glints. Foamy off white head with heavy lacing. Nose: Chocolate covered raisins. Heavy sweet malt. Toffee and light coffeeish notes. Toasted caramel. Palate: Simplistic. Pruny with bitter chocolate notes. A very drying, tannic finish. Mid weight palate, but velvety nonetheless.

oh6gdx (22067) - Vasa, FINLAND - APR 15, 2008
Bottled. Deep brownish amber colour, not much head. Aroma is plum, spices, yeast and sweet malts along with some breadyness. Flavour is very plummy, quite alcoholic, sweeet malts as well as some dark dry fruits and chocolate. Though the alcohol is quite apparent, the beer is very wellbalanced.
