Decent stout with the nice flavour of roasted malts. Might have to retry it to give it a fairer rating.

PapaSkeetSkeet (1007) - Providence, Rhode Island, USA - FEB 14, 2011
Pours brown, fairly bright with healthy, fizzy, light-brown carbonation. Aroma is earthy, mossy, yeasty and refreshing with slight nut and even slighter roast and chocolate. Flavor is of fruity yeast up front with earthy and refreshing yeast notes blending into a clean hop bitterness in finish. Nutty. Less apparent is the roastiness. More of a Dubbel than a stout; it’s not even that dark. It is delicious.

rane (1005) - Nibe, DENMARK - JAN 25, 2011
Bottle. I don´t really understand that this one shoud be a stout ? Dark amber with huge brown head. Aroma sweet malt, dates. Taste sweet malty, figs, dates dried fruits. Quite like a "light" quad, but lacks a little in taste and aroma.

erway (1004) - Albuquerque, New Mexico, USA - MAR 13, 2006
On tap at Lucky Baldwin’s: Pours a deep brown w a tan head. Aroma of roses, caramel and toffee. Body is med but mouthfilling with avg. CO2. Flavor yields an incredible complexity and balance; rum-raisin, toffee, vanilla w/ a floral essence. Finish is med. sweet. This would not score well as a stout in a BJCP competition but this is a delicious beer. Seek it out.

scooterbub (1000) - Lander, Wyoming, USA - NOV 29, 2015
11.2 ounce bottle. Pours a cloudy dark brown with a three inch tan head that lasts. Taste is of chocolate, roasted malt, raisins, yeast and fruit. Similar aroma. Has a decent body with a boozy finish. Overall, pretty good.

Naven (1000) - Poway, California, USA - MAR 30, 2007
Bottle. Dark, dark brown color. Smell is fruity, with possibly some coffee and smoke. I tasted some sourness to this, but it was very subtle. Seems like a real stretch calling this a stout. Seemed like a dark belgian strong ale, or even a porter to me. Pretty good.

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.

MrBeerFanatic (992) - Friona, Texas, USA - MAR 17, 2016
Pepsi in color and carbonation with a light creamy head. Aromas bready, biscuit, nutty, toffee and earthy. Flavors olive, bread, nutty, biscuit, toffee. Very light sweetness. Dry. Says mild stout on bottle but is nothing like one. Rated at sheraton downtown memphis tenn 3.15.16.

750 mL bottle. Cloudy brown pour with a thin tan head. Aroma of apple cider and alcohol. Taste of apples, toffe and brown sugar. Thick mouthfeel, this is a beer you can chew. Warming alcohol finish.
