Poured a dark black with a thin brown head. The aroma was sweet, showed some caramel, coffee, and darker aromas. The flavor was sweet, slight hop dryness, some roast, and a bit of coffee. The palate was thin and a bit waxy. The finish was cool and had a roasted sweet taste. fishead (28) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 16, 2007
50cl bottle. Pours dark with a great looking head. Somewhat thin taste that reminded me more of a black beer... perhaps I’ve been drinking too many imperials lately and it’s made me expect so much more from stouts. benwa420 (47) - East Hampton, New York, USA - MAY 14, 2007
This is a real Stout. Super dark in color. Big bold spices and maltiness. Very nice Strykzone (7555) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - MAY 10, 2007
This is a delicious looking beer. It is dark as old motor oil with a nice tan head. The flavor really jumps up and grabs. It begins full of zest. Flavors are coffee, nutty roastiness, and unsweetened chocolate. The zing mellowed somewhat but this is a stout that is full of life. A very smooth one, too.

0.5l draught (nitro I believe) at Tolkien’s in Zagreb
Enjoyit (3809) - Vadum, DENMARK - MAY 7, 2007
Black colour, perfect brownish little to medium sized nitro head that lasted until the end. Pleasant sweetish caramelly nose, reminiscent of a Twix bar with hints of dust. Typical nitro smooth taste. Underlying weak caramel and cappuccino taste meets some hoppy (I guess) bitterness and acidity (that seems to be common in nitro brews from my experience). Looooong acidic/roasty aftertaste. A decent nitro stout that, while having most if not all the flaws imparted by that way of serving, still retains some of its former complexity. I’ll rerate it when I get a bottle.
Black of color with a nice brown head. Weak notes of plums and coffee. A flavor of coffee, smoke and notes of plums. doublebock (558) - California, USA - MAY 3, 2007
Rich black color with hints of auburn, can immediately smell the mocha coffee notes. , minimal carbonation. The taste is smoky and coffee. jgentgesdo (694) - Tulsa, Oklahoma, USA - MAY 2, 2007
Pours brown-black with a smallish brown head with torn lacing. Nose is apple, roasted malt, coffee, and olive. Rather bright roasted malt notes in the flavor, more coffee, nice bitterness towards the finish. Quite dry. Smooth, easily downed, creamy on the palate. Pretty good dry stout. bu11zeye (13140) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - MAY 2, 2007
(Bottle) Pours a dark brown body with creamy beige head. Aroma of roasted malt with some sweetness. Flavor of roasted malt with a soft, smooth mouthfeel and a sweet finish. Maria (10211) - Thisted, DENMARK - MAY 2, 2007
Nice creamy head and good color. The flavour has notes of caramel, licorice and a nice bitterness. It’s uncomplicated and easy to drink, but it could have more power and complexity.
