CBF07 sample from bottle. Pours dark brown/black with a lacing brown head. Aroma is dark liqourice and chocolate. Body is slight thin for this kind of aroma and colour. Flavour is first roasted malt followed by a good liquorice note going into the finish.

Ungstrup (38249) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - AUG 8, 2003
The aroma is sweet and malty with roasted notes. The color is black and it has a light brown though disappearing head. The flavor is sweet and malty with strong notes of chocolate and roasted malt. A good beer, but not as good as I thought on the basis of Michael Jacksons recommendation.

Travlr (25873) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - DEC 13, 2008
Dark maroon with thin white head. Aroma of roasted malt and alcohol. Caramel and malt flavor with some hops. Good stuff, although maybe a bit lighter than it ought to be.

3.7
cgarvieuk (25744) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - OCT 15, 2007
Bottle at home ... Solid Black ... smokey roast malt ... fruity cherry little liquorish ... lots of roast malt ... quite sweet ... little spirit but doesnt show its strength... good balance.

Very dark brown. Malty and full bodied. Balanced sweetness. Plum aroma. Late bitterness. Excellent stout!

Warning! Early amateur rating! Smokey, dry and somewhat bitter. Drinkable but a dissapointing drink immediately following the Jamaican Lion Head Stout.
