noelcb (271) - Toledo, Ohio, USA - DEC 30, 2005
Dark red-brown, nearly black. Nice rocky tan head. Aromas of sweet dark fruit, particularly prunes and raisins, chocolate, french-roast coffee beans, burnt straw, peat, toasted malt, alcohol, and bready yeast. Flavor was big, darkly roasted malt, chocolate, dark fruit, espresso, yeast and a big dose of hop bitterness. Aftertaste of burnt malt and lingering hop bitterness. Mouthfeel is thick, viscuous and chewy. Suprisingly good.

625mL: Pours a nice dark black with a nice tan head. Smell is of roasted coffee and chocolate. Taste is supringsing. There was some chocolate and coffee flavors in there, but I also noticed a bit of sweetness in there as well. Taste is very good.

Odyn (266) - New York, USA - MAY 29, 2009
This is exactly the kind of beer that I find undrinkable. Way too malty for my taste, though as with most stouts, has a very nice color. Too sweet and to much of a winy taste for me.

These Danish malts are different. I think this is the perfect stout for someone who has never had a stout before to start with. Not as thick as the color dictates. Dense thick beige head that dissipates quickly. It has a abrupt finish, but it does linger in the chest. Wood and nuts with a creamy head.

mybestfriend (263) - Gothenburg, SWEDEN - FEB 20, 2008
Bottle. Pours a black colour with a brownish head. I like to nose - roasted coffee beans, dark chocolate, some smoke, plums or blackcurrants in alcohol - port maybe (withot any disturbing aromas of the alcohol) and some earthy dirt. Flavour is roasted with a subtle sweetness. Roasted malts, roasted coffee, smoke and dark bitter chocolate. You dont feel the high alcohol content at all. The finish is a bit salty with some bitterness. Nice!

Nexxus (261) - Apple Valley, Minnesota, USA - MAY 4, 2004
Nearly opaque black with a thick frothy lasting brown head. Absolutely beautiful. Aroma of roast, molasses, vanilla, dark chocolate, and espresso. Medium thick creamy body with soft carbonation. Nice sweet flavor of roast, plum, raisin, espresso, dark chocolate, molasses, and smoke. A little alcohol comes through in the end. Excellent.

Achet la SAQ sur le nom de sinha stout et dgust dans un verre de maudite. Apparence dun noir intense avec une mousse persistante et collante. Armes de pain grill, dhicory, de vanille bourbon, de caramel cossais et de sucre brun avec une touche dolive noir et de mlasse. Un got dlicieux et quilibr, crmeux et avec du corp. Le got est la mme chose quolfactivement.
