raymow (1492) - Bensalem, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 23, 2006
Pours a nice deep dark reddish black. Has a nice flavor with a bit of alcohol presence which is also in the sweet aroma. Very nice stout.

Diogne (1202) - Mirabel, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 14, 2006
UPDATED: MAR 2, 2006 Pours a dark brown, almost black with a thick and not lasting beige head. Chocolate and toffee aroma with a subtle presence of alcohol. Liquorice, chocolate and roasted malt taste, quite sweet overall. Subtle notes of coffee and blackberries. Not my favorite stout but really drinkable and nothing wrong with it.

gilvanblight (821) - Windsor, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 1, 2006
UPDATED: AUG 8, 2007 Re-rated after 4 years of better beer drinking. Very black pour, thick lacy foamy head. Earthy scent with some malts. Taste of tomato, bitter alcohol and raisin. Very early but somewhat sweet. Bit of an alcohol aftertaste.

jtw (1161) - farmington, Michigan, USA - JAN 26, 2006
bottle from eyedrinkale. sweet and tangy aroma, spicy but not peppery-spice, more like anise and licorice spice. malt and roast, with a sweet alcoholic tinge at the end. lightly acidic and bitter throughout despite the overall sweetness (is that a contradiction? somehow, not really). not all that exciting, but nothing wrong with it.

MoritzF (9564) - Ottobrunn, GERMANY - JAN 26, 2006
(bottle) Darkest brown colour with a small creamy brown head. Sweet roasted malt aroma with caramel, chocolate and hints of alcohol. Sweet flavour, medium to full bodied, medium carbonated. Sweet roastmalty taste with caramel, dried fruits and liquorice. Sweet malty finish covering almost all the alcohol with a shy bitter note. A sweet but not unpleasant Stout.

Quevillon (2965) - Boisbriand, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 26, 2006
Forte, riche et beaucoup de saveur (caf, cacao, lait). Et croire que a vient du Jamaique. Boire a avec du pot ce serait-il bon?

anders37 (24427) - Malm, SWEDEN - JAN 19, 2006
Bottle. It pours a nearly black colour with a quich fading tan coloured head. It has a little roasty smell, hints of coffee malt too. The taste is sweet. It is also roasted and some milky taste. hints of coffe and licorice too. The aftertaste is sweet and fruity. Not a bad beer but i like my stouts not as sweet as this one.

Emil (6065) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JAN 18, 2006
Bottle. Black colour with a medium baige head. Light sweet chocolate aroma and a sweet chocolate, light roasted taste. Medium body with a sweet finish. A plesant drinkable stout.

ABUSEDGOAT (2653) - California, USA - JAN 1, 2006
Lightish black (I know..) body with a moderate head. Aroma is licorice and chocolate dominating some coffee. A hint of darker fruits in there. Flavor is the same, solid.

Aurelius (5154) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - DEC 25, 2005
UPDATED: DEC 26, 2005 A delicious dark chocolate cookie aroma -- doughy and bittersweet. Deep deep ruby brown, big dark tan head, good label, wee 11.2 oz bottle. Sweet, malty, tart, some high gravity homebrew elements. I can imagine that a number of these would put a foot in ones arse on some sunny Carribean barstool. Not very bitter. Finishes chocolate. Medium body, a bit watery feeling at times - not from being thin, but from losing some CO2.
