KapitiCritique (379) - Kansas City, Missouri, USA - JUL 27, 2010
300 ml bottle Appearance: Transparent reddish dark brown. Off white head, large and fine froth with thick swiss cheese lacing; Aroma: alcohol and yeast, a smidgen of chocolate and a sour citrus; Taste: mildly yeast and sour and bitter. Palate: Light bodied, effervescent, thin texture; Overall: I would think it should be marketed as a lite brown ale. There is nothing stout about this stout. It is palatable but not a repeater.

Jimthechap (2064) - Christchurch, NEW ZEALAND - JUN 8, 2009
Aromas of dark chocolate, a touch of orange peel. Enticing. Fruity esters. Deep brown, ruby colour. Dark chocolate flavour with a touch of tangerine at the finish. A very pleasant drop and one worth going back for.
