[Bottle conditioned] A black beer with a chocolate brown head. The aroma is sour - weird for a stout, more like a Flemmish sour ale. The flavor is also sour like Flemmish sour ale but with notes of chocolate and caramel. Dalle (1145) - Skørping, DENMARK - MAR 25, 2005
Bottle. Black with bubbly, light brown head. Quite sour, flemish sour ale-like; "it’s wine!". Something has gone wrong here for sure, though, oddly, it manages to be somewhat balanced and drinkable... Or was it just me getting tipsy? Deserves a re-rate. And again; Thanks a lot Jens Ungstrup. kook (2033) - Perth, Western Australia, AUSTRALIA - NOV 4, 2004
Light roasted coffee aroma. Sweet chocolate, caramel and fruits in start. Nice coffee/roast finish. Medium smooth. Not bad. duff (5486) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - OCT 24, 2004

Although this is described as a stout, I thought it more like a porter. The mouthfeel seemed a little thin for a stout and there was distinct woody character and some sourness on the finish. There are subtle hints of chocolate ad coffee too. Not bad. Cask (gravity dispense), Ipswich Beer Festival. Sigmund (7962) - Tau, NORWAY - SEP 27, 2004
UPDATED: APR 1, 2011 Rerate, cask at the Number Twenty-2, Darlington. Black colour, creamy tan head. Moderate but nice roasty aroma, hints of coffee and chocolate. Smooth mouthfeel. Roasty flavour, notes of coffee, distinctly bitter finish. I’m upping it a bit. Original rating: Cask at the Ipswich Beer Festival 2004, gravity dispense. Black (and I mean BLACK) colour, even when held to the light. Aroma has some dark chocolate, coffee and wood. Roast malt flavour. Hints of tar in the finish. Dry, woody aftertaste. This is not a stout of the "smooth and velvety" kind, but an interesting aquaintance indeed! Hildigöltur (5103) - København, DENMARK - NOV 19, 2003
[Cask conditioned] Dark brown coloured. Roasted malts in the aroma. Roasted malt flavour with notes of coffee and dark chocolate. Thin, but tasty. bierkoning (13740) - La Tropica/Doarp, NETHERLANDS - AUG 17, 2003
Deep dark brown color, opague. Small brown head. Slight toast aroma, roasted malt flavor. Smoky with apricot, coffee and a hint of sourness. Rather thin stout but full of flavor.
