A very dark black beer with a faint red shine under a bubbly brown head. The aroma sweet roasted (with a bit of acidity from the roasted malt), as well as notes of coffee. The flavor is quite sweet with notes of licorice and coffee - the coffee being a bit bitter as very hard roasted coffee, the end is bitter with a weird coffee note lingering for some time. The body is surprisingly thin the ABV taken into account. joergen (28106) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - DEC 10, 2005

Cafe, Gothenburg in 2006. Black colour with mediumsized brown head. Aroma is roasted malts, some dark dry fruits as well as mild notes of coffee. Flavour is roasted malts, mild smoked wet wood, some coffee and mild spices.
Bottled. Opaque black, beige head. Obvious rum aroma. Sweetish with near full body and thick mouthfeel. There are notes of coffee, chocolate and fruit, but rum completely dominates. No bitterness.

(Bottle 30 cl) Clear, dark brown with a red hue and a dense and creamy cappuchino-style head. Roasted, vinous aroma with the alcohol showing. Only a medium body, very smooth mouthfeel and mildly roasted malt accents - no ashtray here. Again the alcohol is really shining through. Not a great stout, but actually a rather pleasant drink. 090207 rlgk (18850) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - MAY 25, 2006
Black, brown head. Malty aroma with alot of rum and burnt sugar. Malty, flavor, a bit salty and sugary. Malty finish. Oakes (17664) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 28, 2003
Kimchee and I did this one side-by-side with Dragon Stout and here's what we found: The colour is very dark brown (exactly the same). The aroma is fruity (raisin, prune) with stinging alcohol (basically the same). Flavourwise it is sweet, with lightish flavours of plums and sugary malts. Body is light. It is similar to, but less meaty than Dragon Stout. It has less malt complexity and deep, dark fruit esters. Alcohol seems reduced as well. There are too many similarities for these to be from different breweries, but this seems like a significantly lower-gravity version of the Dragon Stout. TBone (17528) - Pori, FINLAND - APR 9, 2006

Opaque black, not much head. Cold coffee, molasses in the nose. Licorice, toffee, a bit of chocolate. Tickling carbonation in the finish. Some alcohol burn in the aftertaste. Slightly unclean, maybe maize used? Suprisingly good and tasty, imho underrated FES in RB.
Bottle from Malt & Vine. Pours a very dark brown, almost black, with a decent tan head. Aroma of dark lightly burnt malt with something lightly herbal. Medium body with rather creamy carbonation. Flavor is dark, almost with a touch of tar. A good straight forward stout. Not a trace of heat. Good drink.
