Not a bad stout but I have to agree it is a little thin for a stout and it also suffers from a bad case of being too hyped up. Nice mocha chocolate taste.

Bottled. Dark muddy brown. Rich aroma and flavour: Aroma: Fruits and cocoa. Flavour: Milk chocolate, coffee but a bit too swet maybe with a clean maltiness. Creamy palate.

Black with a huge foamy dark brown head. Aroma is dry and heavily roasted. Milk, chocolate, and coffee notes pepper the aroma as well. A very sweet stout that is cloying. Flavor is mostly sweet chocolate. Very smooth and malty. This was too sweet.

Miksu (5053) - Jyväskylä, FINLAND - APR 16, 2006
Bottled. Opaque black. Sweet, malty and roasted aroma with rye and apple. Flavor is full and sweet with coffee as well as chocolade. Salty licorice in the finish. Tasty, calls for more bitterness though.

This beer is called Sinha Stout here in Ontario. Nice alternative to the usual UK suspects, but won’t be replacing them for me. Alcohol is too high for regular enjoyment, too.

HenrikSoegaard (14448) - Randers, DENMARK - APR 29, 2006
Bottle 0.625 L. Creamy lightbrown fully lasting head. Dark brown colour. Week but nice aroma. Nice coffee/caramel balanced flavor. Long finish. A little watery palate regarding 8.0 abv, but a good stout!

UPDATED: DEC 7, 2006 Black opaque with decent dark tan head the has decent lasting. Nose is faint, chocolate with mocha and slight anise. Flavor is nice, roasted mocha coffee, medium bitterness, and a slight metallic taste that is mildly offputting. Palate has a medium-thin body and somewhat watery, yet still smooth texture and a lively bit of carbonation. Finish is short and mildly acidic, like a dark coffee. A decent stout that really never shows it’s 8% potency, but was not exceptionally complex or interesting.
