Tap. Another typical nitro stout. Weak aroma (thanks to the nitro) of roasted malts. Flavor very similar to Guinness but with the malts almost tasting burnt rather than just roasted. Overly thin palate for a stout.

probstblueribbon (3791) - Nepean, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 31, 2006
50 cL bottle from LCBO. Pours a nice deep brown, opaque. Nose of smokey toffee, treacle, sweet, roasted aromas. A bit of molasses. Thin bodies, low carbonation. Very dry, slightly acidic, bitter finish that fades quickly. Some of the burnt-roasted malt comes through in the mouth. Not a style I’m big on. Given teh nose, I would prefer some sweetness when I drink it.

DerWeg (1677) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 31, 2006
Very nice pleasing reasonably deep dark roasry malts. Bright and slightly bitter hops are well integrated. Aroma is very easy-going. Flavorful quencher.

3.2
sheatripper (863) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - OCT 29, 2006
Tap. Poured mostly like a Guinness, very dark brown murky color, with cascading bubbles and a tan creamy head. Aroma of roasted coffee malt, with a bit of sulphur. Flavor was roasted malt, slightly tangy, with some smoky oak-chip notes. Thin to medium mix-gas ale palate which finished fairly dry. A nice change from Guinness where you can find it.

3.6
StompBrockmore (316) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 27, 2006
500ml bottle. Very dark, near black, with small ruby highlights against the light. Aroma is of subtle coffee and roasted malt, and the flavour is similar, with a lingering bitter finish. Totally solid stout.

3.3
Grovlam (4211) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - OCT 23, 2006
Bottled. Pitch dark color and nice creamy like head. Kind of like the great Guinness I thought. Aroma was licorice, and some smoky and roasted malt, coffee and chocolate. Medium to full bodied but a surprisingly smooth and pleasing taste in mouth. Slight bitter and every so lightly sweet finish. Very nice stout I thought.

2.9
MadIndian (2743) - Levittown, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 22, 2006
Sampled with Stegosaurus and Beerded_one at Newtown Beerfest. Black pour with white head. Good aroma of roasted malt with a hint of coffee. Had a bit of a sour flavor. It was ok.

2.6
KnutAlbert (6754) - Oslo, NORWAY - OCT 16, 2006
Bottled. Quite similat to a Guinness in most respects, nothing to make this stand out from the crowd. A bit more experimentation would be welcome!

3.4
milewide (2217) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - OCT 15, 2006
UPDATED: APR 5, 2007 As good as Guinness. I couldn’t tell the difference. Dark black color, and roasted malt flavor
