pivnizub (10452) - Bochum, Porř, GERMANY - NOV 29, 2009
Bottle: Literally black, firm tanned head; sweetish "smoky" nose with traces of dried fruits and chocolate; moderate to solid sweet-bitter flavour, medium to full bodied; sweet toasty and fruity-chocolatey finish with a roast-malty-bitter aftertaste. Unfortunately a bit too much on the sweet side, but otherwise a good, flavourful Stout......

Beerdrinker79 (2173) - Idaho, USA - NOV 28, 2009
500 ml. bottle- Pours Black with a thick head, aroma is of alcohol. The flavor is roasted malt and the usual flavors in a Imperial stout. What intrigued me about this one is that it is an authentic Scottish stout, and a very good one at that. Its not as bold as your typical Imperial American Stout, but it is smoother, and I could drink this all night.

lumpsowers (287) - Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, USA - NOV 24, 2009
Motor oil pour, low head and lace. Smokey, bready aroma. Bitter malty flavor,with a wheaty bready mouth, and a lot of chocolatey bitter coffee flavors. Medium carb, thick, smokey roasted soy and worcestershire sauce. Lots of chocolate, like a milkshake. Some alcohol comes in at the end. Woody, biscuity, just a hint of worcestershire sauce. Outstanding.

Will pour a five+ finger light tan head that fades quickly to a thin layer, leaving some lace. Black color no highlights. Light-medium carbonation and medium-heavy bodied. Light chocolate nose. Flavor is roasted chocolate, somewhat sweet. Dry finish. $4.99 for a 500ml bottle from Manchester Wine and Liquors Manchester, CT.

patrick767 (4038) - fort wayne, Indiana, USA - NOV 13, 2009
bottle - Pours near black with a nice tan head. The aroma is of roast malt and chocolate malt. It has a robust roast chocolate malt flavor with hints of coffee. Its not too sweet and overall is a good, flavorful, easy drinking stout.

ansermadide (1526) - Kyle, Texas, USA - NOV 12, 2009
This fabulous stout holds a great, light brown, frothy head... Holds it shape very well. Color black and solid. Unmistakable roasted, almost smoky and woody chocolate aroma. Flavor is also unique: expands on the roasted aroma with a smooth chocolate finish. Possible coffee undertones with a bitter presence. This is a great beer!

jkwalking05 (4708) - Arlington, Texas, USA - NOV 7, 2009
Black in color with a large beige head. Aroma is of toffee, toast, roasted malts, peat, coffee, and chocolate. Taste is of roasted malts, chocolate, dark fruit and driftwood.

TBone (17047) - Pori, FINLAND - NOV 4, 2009
Bottled (BB 10/2010, @Kaisla)
Dark brown color, creamy brown head, some lace. Sticky, a bit sour milky lactose aroma, some mild chocolate. Flavor is a bit similar, sweet milky, some lactose, light sourness, chocolate or cocoa, roasted malts in the finish. Very milk stout -like. Flavors are not very intensive, so it is a bit bland despite of being powerful 7%.

tripelthreat (190) - Soquel, California, USA - OCT 31, 2009
Bottle. Deep dark brown body topped with a tan head. Aroma is honey sweet with mild chocolate and a little coffee. Flavor is chocolate, some coffee, sweet raisin and other dark fruit, and roast but none of it is very intense. Medium mouthfeel with bitterness and too much sweet dark fruit in the finish. Okay.
