Very nice nose of dark fruits,right up front.Then some toffee for a complex aroma that was very nice. I started drinking this too cold and whence it warmed up it was much better but it wsas more like a Belgian strong then a Stout.

Glouglouburp (6103) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 20, 2006
Cloudy brown with ruby highlights with a large tan head. Supposed to be a stout, selling this as such is almost dishonest and from the look of it the dude on the label is in on the joke. Aroma of cacao and cloves. Taste is very yeasty with milk chocolate, cloves, a bit fruity (plums) and a bit sugary. Very unusual. Unfortunately the body is a bit watery and the all-over-the-place flavours feel diluted. Medium finish. Overall this is a rather weird and somewhat complex beer. Put down by many because it is not the stout it claims to be but I found myself enjoying it because of its unusual nature.

Dogbrick (9460) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - AUG 18, 2006
Sampled at the Odds and Ends Tasting on 8/16/06: Dark reddish-brown color with a thin and creamy off-white head. Minimal lacing. Mild malt and caramel aroma. Medium-bodied with a roasty character. Malt, dark fruit and chocolate flavors are present. The finish is tart fruit at first, then sweeter fruit and malt. Above average.

thedm (5142) - Fort Wayne, USA - AUG 4, 2006
This bottled brew from a bottle shop marked on cap as best before 08/08/23 poured a very large sized head of foamy fine to medium sized tan colored bubbles that was mostly lasting and left behind a semi-opaque with lots of fine particulate no visible carbonation and dark brown in body color and a poor lacing. The aroma was vinous brown malt and spicy. The thick mouth feel was tingly at the start and at the finish with a mild vinous tasty bown malt chocolate aftertaste. The flavor contained notes of mild chocolate cinnamon spice brown malt. Delicious and one I would certainly buy again. More please!
