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.

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.

Very nice pleasing reasonably deep dark roasry malts. Bright and slightly bitter hops are well integrated. Aroma is very easy-going. Flavorful quencher.

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.

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.

Grovlam (4253) - 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.

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.

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!

UPDATED: APR 5, 2007 As good as Guinness. I couldn’t tell the difference. Dark black color, and roasted malt flavor

Stefano (2034) - Thisted, DENMARK - OCT 3, 2006
UPDATED: JAN 17, 2007 Deep black in colour with a light brown coloured head. Aroma is roasty, of coffee and light chocolate. Flavour is very roasty, coffee, chocolate, all the stout regulars but this just seems a little light. Quite bitter.

Bottle. Pours a very dark brown with a nice large fluffy tan head -- it looks the part but it’s slightly downhill from here. Aroma is sweet and malty, slightly roasty with some coffee and maybe some chocolate. Flavour’s...different, not what I expected. It’s somewhat watery, just a little roasty with some sweet malt and a dry bitter finish. Flavour could use more coffee and chocolate, as it is it doesn’t do much for me. Medium bodied, acidic mouthfeel. Looks great but the rest, not so much.
