Black-brown pour with tan head. Really complex fruity nose with chocolate, cherry and raspberry. Alcohol evident in the taste but the sweetness is well balanced and it finishes fairly dry. anders37 (26657) - Malmö, SWEDEN - SEP 12, 2013

Bottle from Appellation Wines. Pours dark brown with a good long-lasting tan head, tight bubbles. Aromas of chocolate, coffee, liquorice, cherries, touch of peat-smoke. Awesome. Taste delivers a roasty bitterness, light sweetness, and merest hint of boozy indulgence. Full bodied, creamy texture, long, long finish. Seriously good beer.

UPDATED: OCT 29, 2013 I try this beer in the house of ratebeer master chriso during his many wonders pre-GBBF tasting. For the event I travel to London in England, land of queens and Pippa where people drink many cups of tea and like eat the fish with french fries. This beer is dark brown like the skin of well-sunned sexy ladies. Very sweet flavor with much chocolate. Some earthy bitterness remind me of pretty ladies giving me no hanky, no panky. I enjoy this beer but I drink only small portion because in my presence were many other ratebeer men including big ticker Danish men. Thanks we had many other beers so altogether I made good boost.

This is obviously a very nice stout but it is not to my taste. Very chocolately, very rich but not my sort of beer. Stuartyboy (1671) - Ayr, SCOTLAND - JUL 11, 2013
