Bottle. Pours black, good lace, and with an average/small creamy brown/tan head. Starts out with a sweet cookie and toasted chocolate aroma, with a hint of a herbal fresh mint that livens up the beer. More herby hop notes in the aroma, as well as cinnamon and dry dust, and light alcohol. I found the body and flavor, watery, bland, and I seemed like something was missing. Unimpressed.

Didn’t quite stack up to the Flying Dog Imperial I was judging it with. Lacked a little on the bite and aftertaste. Good ale, but get the dog if available. TBone (17696) - Pori, FINLAND - OCT 3, 2005

Opaque black, not much head. Milk chocolaty, roasted, nutty aroma. Light to medium bodied, chocolaty roasted. Basic chocolate stout, easy to drink "session beer". Some similarities to Camerons Chocolate Ale.
Bottled. Black opaque colour with brown head. Roasted malt and sweet coffee in aroma. Roasted malt and old coffee in flavour along with sweet chocolate. A bit conflict in the flavour, otherwise it is good. DrBeer (862) - Solna Stockholm, SWEDEN - OCT 2, 2005
Black with thin beige head.
Sourish aroma with notes of roasted malt, vanilla, hops, cream, coffee, tobacco and rubber.
Malty flavor with roasted notes. Fruity with notes of caramel, rubber and licorice. Some alcohol. Hoppy with some acidity.

(Bottled@Oliver Twist) Dark coffee brown with a small beige head. Mild, lactic and roasty, quite nice aroma. Creamy but bitter, roasty-malty flavor. Very drinkable and quite smooth palate. A nice, moderately light but tasty and drinkable stout. Feels stronger than the ABV. ante (3373) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - SEP 29, 2005
Black with low thick brown head. Aaah, what a stunning aroma! dark chocolate, toasted malts, whiped chocolate-cream with a touch of smoke. But the flavour is a bit simplistic, coffee and grassy hops dominates along with ryebread. Roasty, chocolately aftertaste with a grassy , hoppy undertone. omhper (25250) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - SEP 26, 2005
Bottled. Transparently black, near no head. Leathery licorice aroma. Dry with some carmelly crystal malt character. Roasty and creamy with restrained hoppiness and medium bitterness. Enjoyable, but fairly straight forward. ChazyRPh (583) - Chazy, New York, USA - SEP 23, 2005
Black pour with hardly any brown head. Aroma of roasted malt, iron and dog. Slightly acidic, roasty-toasty, with some mild hoppiness. Nice finish. Decent mouthfeel, finishes oily on the tongue. kfarrnd (113) - Oldsmar, Florida, USA - SEP 13, 2005
Bottle. Poured very dark with a medium sized tan head. Aroma was light with just hints of malt, chocolate and coffee. The palate was very, very smooth and enjoyable. Flavor was heavy on chocolate and roasted malt and just the right amount of sweetness. Interesting hops flavor on the finish. I will definitely be purchasing more of this.
