aracauna (3196) - Georgia, USA - JUN 26, 2006
Dark brown with good ruby undertones. The head builds easily and lasts nicely. The aroma is caramel and a bit of milk chocolate. Really more like a porter than a stout. The porter similarities continue into the flavor. Very mellow beer.

Draught - Beer Circus - Croydon. A dark brown coloured beer with an off-white head, and lacing. The aroma has fruity malts, candy sugar, and raisins. The taste is also malty and fruity. It’s perhaps a little over sweet but has a good bgody. Didn’t pick up anything which made me think ’Stout’
