Dark black colour with good head. Hopy malt aroma. Burnt malt flavour. Fizzy palate.

madquacker (1121) - Canberra ACT, AUSTRALIA - MAY 25, 2004
Chocalty flavours and aromas without being a blockbuster of a stout (which is good). Not too overpowering. Not quite a good as Coopers Best Stout but close.

LiebeBier (808) - Annapolis, Maryland, USA - MAY 15, 2004
Dark black beer with a quickly diminishing head. Creamy, chocolate aroma. Very malty and smooth. I lighter tasting dark beer. An excellent crisp, hoppy finish.

farmboy (218) - Barwon Heads, AUSTRALIA - MAY 9, 2004
Quite enjoyed this. WOuldnt tush out and buy a carton or anything, but the flavour was evident right from the start. Slight chocolatey taste at first and quite roasty afterwards.

dreamboat (186) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - MAY 4, 2004
Prominent chocolate aroma and taste. The pick of the MOnteiths line up for me - I was quite partial to the Krystall, but that was last years brew, and this years is not quite to the same standard.

winkle (478) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - APR 19, 2004
Pours a deep red/black with a head that lasts as long as a brides nightie. Some chocolate and coffee notes apparent in the restrained nose. Body is slighty thin IMO. Big chocolate flavour, with a light bitter finish - slightly one dimensional, but I still like it. Could some pub put this on tap for me in Brisbane please?

maeib (8749) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - APR 11, 2004
A bit of a musty chocolate smell to this one. Appearance is almost black, with no head at all! There is a slight roastiness to the mouthfeel but not a great deal of depth. Not a bad beer though.

SimonLarsen (210) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - MAR 28, 2004
Deep dark malts, bit of chocolate and a touch of dry hoppiness. Super dark with a head that laces. bit of sweet then coffee flavour. Rather nice beer. I think I'd enjoy drinking this of a friday evening after work.

Ungstrup (35015) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - FEB 14, 2004
The aroma is sweet caramelic with notes of roasted bread. The color is dark brown and it has a small disappearing head. The flavor is of caramel, roasted malt, and a light maltyness, before it ends on an OK bitterness. The body is thin. A boring schwarzbier.

Hildigltur (5105) - Kbenhavn, DENMARK - JAN 22, 2004
Dark brown coloured. Some chocolate in the aroma. Slightly roasty and malty. Rather thin.
