Dark mahogany pour with a huge tan head. Aroma is slight coffee. Flavor of mild chocolate and huge coffee, with a bitter bite at the end. A little light bodied for my taste. I like a motor oil stout. Good stout for a non-imp. decaturstevo (6343) - decatur, Tennessee, USA - JUL 26, 2008
Dark brown pour with hints of red. Tan head and lace. Aroma of light coffee. Flavor of chocoffee with a hint of abv. Good bitter, caramelly flavor as well. Medium bodied. Solid pretty complex flavor for a brewpub stout. troyc (2869) - Illinois, USA - DEC 21, 2007
(Tap) Labeled as the "Export Stout" at the Memphis location. Pours a very deep brown color with a small tan head. Aroma of molassas and burnt caramel. Silky mouthfeel, and average carbonation. Taste included dry grain notes and a touch of coffee. Very light alcoholic warming at the end. Nice stout. arjoseph (642) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - NOV 30, 2007
On cask (Irish yeast), Nashville brewpub. Nice pillowy tan head over a clear but very dark ruby black. Smells like fruitcake and sweet, roasty, dusty coffee. Lighter in body than I was expecting. Some of the roastiness and the deep red fruitiness comes out, but mostly it’s a smoothly sweet and fairly bland beer in the middle, giving way to a slightly roasty, slightly bitter finish that lingers quite a bit. Not quite a dry stout, the appellation "stout" is definitely appropriate: this doesn’t fit an a more specific box. Classic. charcot25 (181) - Cordova, Tennessee, USA - SEP 14, 2007
Didn’t find a entry for their foreign export stout, so I’m entereing my opinion here. On draft at the Memphis locale. Opaque with a nonexistent head. Nice fruity, roasty aroma. Deep caramel, coffee, chocolate notes with a notable warming effect of alcohol. Very satisfying as a desert beverage.

Bottle Conditioned: My what a fine stout it was. Malts galore and a hint of hops to boot. The lace impressed even the non stot lovers. DaSilky1 (2608) - San Diego, California, USA - MAR 2, 2003
Beer engine cask tapped by some crazy laymen with a jackhamer..(RAF)..nice dark mud color with shit floating around inside and a fat, sticky, glass-climbing tan head...it feasts the air with buttery roastedness and carmel-lubed whipped cream..flavors were subtly roasty, moderately bitter, slightly salty with nice memories of toasted pumpkin seeds and blackberry jam on an a slice of toasted 15-grain bread with the crust just slightly charred. Good low grav. stout. Jokes (1455) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 2, 2003
One of the best stouts of the RAF. Came out of the engine with beautiful dark brown head atop a dark, dark brown body. The aroma was really very nice with chocolate, burnt toast, a touch of coffee, and, as Trappist Ales Rule pointed out, a nice amount blackberry jam. A really nice mouthfeel and wonderful balance made this a delightful treat.
