11.2 oz bottle from Sams Wine and Spirits. I read is Malta a country? Well then its the first beer Ive rated from Malta. Pours a dark brown black with a fizzy red brown head. The nose is fresh malt, like on a brew day with chocolate and a hint of sour fruit. Flavors of sweet chocolate, with a strange sour after taste. Light and watery. Strange one, but hey Carmel Color Added. Thats exciting.

12oz - thanks beastiefan2k - Aroma is more dark lager than stout. Subtle roasted malts and caramel. Pours black with a medium dark brown head and good lacing. Flavor is sweet caramel and roasted malts. Palate is thin and sticky. Different, but not too exciting.

TheBeerOrg (2145) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - MAR 26, 2007
Pours black with ever so slight reddish hues at the corners, with a fully receding tan head. Aroma of murky dark crystal malt, tobacco, stale coffee, toffee, and dark bready notes. Taste is sweet, creamy, with notes of dark crystal and foamy, perhaps stale chocolate malt. Finishes with slight bitterness and lactose sweetness. Mouthfeel is mouthfeel bodied and slightly creamy with soft carbonation.

Courtesy boboski. Pours black with a thin light brown head. smell is pretty weak. It almost kind of smells like a skunky corona which i thought was just plain wierd and not good. The taste wasnt as bad as the smell. Pretty creamy with a dose of caramel and chocolate but still got some of that skunkiness that wasnt welcomed. Pretty sweet taste up front and in the aftertaste. Kind of watery for a stout. Not terrible, but really not that good.
