UPDATED: JUN 16, 2007 Bottle. Pours black with brown head. Aroma is sweet and roasty. Flavor is nutty, sweet, with subtle hints of coffee. Smooth but subtle bitter finish, but with some very slight notes of molasses. Very easy to drink, but still bold. Simply put, a great stout. No wonder this is a top 50.

Looks inviting, Smells rough but like a fruity chocolate. Taste is great, like a chocolate milkshake. Creamy on the palate like whipped mashed potatoes. Overall this beer is a real treat, just like a hot fudge sundae in a blender. pnista (1007) - Bloomington, Indiana, USA - JAN 29, 2006
UPDATED: MAY 16, 2007 impenetrable, this beer is like a black hole with a dense creamy head. The aroma doesn’t do the appearance of this beer justice, though only because it is fairly weak in scent... though what aroma there is smells creamy. The flavor is really outstanding, the standard rich/creamy/coffee/chocolate flavor of a stout, with excellent mouth feel. The flavors become more intense as this beer sits at room temperature for longer. I’ve drank very few superior beers.May 16, 2007:
Well, I have to mark off flavor by 2, palate by 1, and overall by 2. This is a damnded fine beer, don’t get me wrong, but this was a very early rating. The nose was still great, I was tempted to up that. The appearance is still phenomenal, though from the bottle I had less head. The palate is a little bit fizzier. The flavors are a bit more astringent and cola like that I remember. Don’t get me wrong, I’d still drink this every day if my local had this on tap, but it’s just not the ethereal nectar of the Gods I once thought it was. Perhaps my favorite straight stout. sunevdj (4087) - Copenhagen OE, DENMARK - JAN 29, 2006

(Bottle 35,5 cl) Pours a very pretty opaque black with a beige head. Very vinous and malty with some raisiny accents. Also chocolatey, coffeish and toasted. A discreet bitterness. Very tasty. 270106
