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.
Pours Black with a thich brown head. Malty sweet aroma.
F;avour is very fresh and malty with a roasted malt bitterness. Very interesting. It is kind of a refreshing stout. Not what i was expecting but I like it. Slightly spicy nice mouth feel . Good stout. The 8% is well hidden in the palate. It gives it a kind of dry crisp finish, but still verybmalty. Savvy1982 (1706) - Lethbridge, Alberta, CANADA - SEP 10, 2009
Bottle. Pours deep dark brown, but falls short of black, nice thick pale tan head. with surprisingly nice lacing. Nose is quite soft, dried dark fruits, mild roast, some coffee and chocolate. Palate, though light, isnít thin, providing a nice tart mouthfeel, with figs, prunes, and "Fruit Rollups", plus the expected roasted malt flavor. A very contradictory beer, interesting indeed. bhensonb (15094) - Woodland, California, USA - DEC 22, 2009
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. DaSilky1 (2606) - San Diego, California, USA - JUN 25, 2010
Has a belgiany stout nose...some brine, some salted nuts, belgian stout yeast, salt, peanuts..hmmm...dark brown beer, tan head. Flavors are fairly nutty, brittle like...a touch salty..interesting for sure but needs a little more sweetness to bring out those interesting attributes. Somewhat acidic palate kind of engulfs the carbonation but it works.

Bottle. Sweet stout smell, strong velvety chocolate and underlying fruit, delicious! Dark ruby brown pour is close enough to black for reggae and supports a sudsy light brown head. Taste has chocolate, yes, but the key player is dominating roast, aptly supported by dry ash. Which lasts. Lightish medium body. Stings a bit, and a drop too much acidity, but the flavor hammers without losing any grace on the swing. Kinz (3786) - Glen Allen, Virginia, USA - APR 8, 2011
Been a while since I had a Foreign Stout, this one toed the line stylewise between the alcohol content and fruitiness of a typical foreign stout and the dryness and coffee thinness of a dry stout. But I enjoyed it. Poured black. Aroma was mostly coffee. Flavor was coffee, a bit of chocolate, and a light fruit character. Light bodied, hid the 7.6 very well. Not spectacular, but quite solid and enjoyable. drpimento (3572) - La Crosse, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 24, 2011
Mmm, not bad. Not quite a sweet stout and drinkable. I let it warm a tad before pouring and then it had a nice, thick, creamy, foamy, frothy, tan head that mostly faded fast and a little lace. Color is opaque dark brown except in the bottom of the glass where itís narrow and there I can see itís a clear garnet. Aroma isnít too complex, just basically what Iíd expect to find: roasty, malt, toffee, cocoa, caramel. Flavrorís more or less the same with a little sweetness balance by the roasty burnt and carbonic acids. Body is good, ditto carbonation. Finish is balanced too with a little booze and of medium length. A slow session so I donít get wasted. AmEricanbrew (6878) - Same Trailer, Different Park, Louisiana, USA - AUG 15, 2011
