Not bad, but no much of a stout. A bit light on flavor and finish. By as my profile says, "If you dont try it, you cant say you dont like it"

Caramel and toffee malts, a touch of milk chocolate in the aroma; brown color, small tan head; lots of caramelized malt flavors, including demura sugar, molasses, hints of anise; medium body, smooth; I think this is my first Ethiopian beer and I really like this for what it is... Not quute stout, but lots of interesting malty flavors.

Bottle at Ethiopian restaurant. Hmmmm, super brown copper color. Pukey caramel sweet malts. Same as the amber beer.

Perhaps this is an unfair rating, but I was just remembering that i used to always get this at the Ethiopian restaurant near my house and thought it was interesting if nothing else. They dont carry it anymore, and this rating doesnt say anything of interesting, but its a pretty decent beer for yknow...ethiopia.

cbfobes (2883) - Quad Cities, Illinois, USA - JAN 18, 2014
Poured from bottle, pours more of a dark amber brown than anything, wouldnt think stout just looking at in in a glass, the aroma is of sweet malt and roast, the flavor is pretty weak, some sweetness at first with an off finish, metallic almost, meh.

pictoman (1067) - British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 19, 2013
Poured from 330mL bottle. Clear mahogany brown with dissipating beige head. Sweet malt, molasses, dates on the aroma. Caramel and dark fruit flavour with molasses. Very light watery body. Should not be called a stout.

This is honestly, my favorite beer I have ever tried. I travel internationally 9 months of the year and have gotten into the habit of trying local beers everywhere I go. Yes, I have even been to Ethiopia. I was so excited to find the Ethiopian restaurant near my home carries it. It is truly fabulous. Every friend I have brought to try this beer love it. It has a very special, unique taste, unlike any other beer. If you are really into beer, you may not appreciate its taste. If its hard for you to find a beer you love, then youre going to dig this beer! REally, the best Ive had, anywhere in the world. Its special!

Bottle: I have tried to get this stout in Ethiopia so many times and end up getting a bottle at an Ethiopian place in Atlanta. It is thick and clearly has some non malt sugars in the mix.
