COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This stout has a robust flavour with a ful bodied and smooth mouth feel. The roast flavours lead to a dry espresso like finish. A generous addition of fuggles hops lead to a tart bitterness which mingles with the roast espresso flavours on the tongue.

Tranquillity (2034) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 31, 2006
I’ve had this draught notorious times at Gallow’s Bird, Espoo, but this rating is from a bottle. The beer is dark-dark brown with a thick, light-brown head which lasts quite long. My nail broke while cutting potato. The aroma is quite sweet, wonderfully chalked smoke with some berries (elder?) and cream. The taste is very good, smoke and milk with burned malt and a very balanced hoppy note on the aftertaste. Smooth, although not to foamy on the palate.

shigadeyo (3646) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - DEC 20, 2006
Sampled on 11/29/2006 at the November meeting of the Junedale Beer Klub. Brought by Tman... Tasting notes: Black with a creamy tan head. Lots of roast/char character in the flavor and dark bitter chocolate. Has a very dry finish with a moderate level of bitterness. Thin to medium body. Actually tasted a bit better than the Guinness Extra Stout that was sampled earlier during this tasting meeting!

pubbe (493) - Højbjerg, DENMARK - DEC 10, 2006
Bottle. Dark brown with light brown diminishing head. Aroma offers burnt malt, tar and bitter chocolate. Chocolate and hops in the flavor. Nice long finish with soothing bitterness. Well made stout, which seems to lack some alcohol to balance the chocolate though.

Quevillon (2966) - Boisbriand, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 7, 2006
Bouteille de 500 ml. Pure noir, bon collet avec de la dentel. Arome de malte roti simple mais bien. Goût assez sec, amère. Bien pour son style.

On tap @ Anam Cara. Pours a dead black with creamy tan head. Aroma is very mild. Taste has a bit of roasted chocolate. Dry and bitter with very creamy mouthfeel. As basic dry stouts go this is pretty good. Take THAT Guinness.

bubbleflubber (2194) - Swannanoa, North Carolina, USA - NOV 29, 2006
Pours opaque black into the glass with a diminished tan head leaving webbed lace. The nose is of roasted grains. Dry roasted flavor.... emphasis on dry. There is a slightly hopped roasted finish, as the description says... "roast bite". As it is dry, not much effervescence here. Some coffee (grounds?), and smoky grains noted. The mouthfeel is full-bodied but lightly crisp at the same time. As stouts go, it’s not my favorite style, but my palate allows me to appreciate the offering.

DonMagi (5593) - bantervile, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - NOV 24, 2006
There is no denying that this looked excellent in the glass. Aroma gives roasted bitter burnt coffee malts, some dark chocolate if you serch for long enough. Taste is again as one dimentional as the aroma.
