Koelschtrinker (21175) - K?ln (Cologne), GERMANY - MAY 17, 2011
Für ein Stout ist der Antrunk eher mild, eine angenehme herb-süßlich Würzigkeit mit tiefgehender Malzigkeit stellt sich erst etwas später ein. Dieses Arome erreicht schnell seinen Intensitätshöhepunkt und verharrt dort einige Zeit. Etwas bananig süß werdend, tief malzig, dieses Arome wird mit der Zeit deutlich milder. Im Abgang leicht und angenehm schokoladig, wenig herb, das Malz wird wieder intensiver. Gelungenes Stout mit genügend Tiefgang und Ausgeglichenheit. 10/11/11/12/12/11

fiulijn (21022) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 6, 2003
Dark color, dark brown generous head. Deep coffee aroma; roasted malt; yeast. Smooth, good balance of sweetness and bitterness; malt, roasted malt, coffee; a very light acidity (high carbonation, maybe). Final not enough interesting, some sweetness, not too long.
A pleasant sweet stout.

2.7
mcberko (18557) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 4, 2012
12 oz. bottle, sent from wilco (thanks Mike), listed at 8.8% ABV, pours solid black with a medium tan head. Aroma is quite chocolatey, light roast, slight metallic notes and subtle coffee. Flavour of chocolate, metallic bitter coffee, low roast, with more cocoa notes coming in toward the finish. Very thin palate for a stout (especially one at near-9%). Drinkable and nothing offensive, but misses the mark in terms of body and complexity. Muffled flavours that make it seem like this isn’t the intended flavour profile. I don’t understand the high rating on this one at all.
