Black, steady cream head. Roasted aroma. Smooth but watery palate comparing eg. to Guinness. Bitter long lasting finish. (7/5/7/3/14 3.6)
Opaque black with perfect chocolate/expresso head. Roasted dark chocolate aroma. Smooth, bitter with milk chocolate notes and roasted malts, but body is on lighter side. (7/5/7/3/15 3.7)
UPDATED: MAR 16, 2004 Noticeably coffee-tasting with a small creamy tan head resting above it beautifully. It finishes off averagely and is bitter but not as bitter as Guinness. It's also not as good. Guinness is...a stouter stout? Can I say that? mjgdawg (13) - Athens, Georgia, USA - FEB 22, 2004
Dark brown in color, quite inviting with a large creamy head that dissipates a little too fast. Good lacing but lackin in any specific flavor. Has tinges of bitter malts and cream with little aftertaste. All in all a good creamy stout with a nice bitter finish. BigBastard (668) - L.A., California, USA - FEB 21, 2004
I held out on trying this for a long time, but finally gave in. I was rewarded with a smooth, creamy stout. Less bitter than guinness, but still kind of bland in flavor.

Very nice stout, and as the description says, is a good contender for Guiness. It is very dark and smooth. It goes down surprisingly easy but is not for the faint of heart. TorbenH (1073) - Frederikshavn, DENMARK - FEB 20, 2004
Very nice appearance. Dark color with creamy head. Allmost no flavor and very thin - tastes like water. rhapsouldize (174) - Phoenixville, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 19, 2004
Nice appearance, but not what I expected. Barely any flavor and way too thin. The head is nice and creamy, medium tan and consistent. The body is ebony and opaque, which gives it a nice, strong appearance; too bad the taste wasn't good enough to meet the high expectations that the appearance suggests. Its only real positive aspects are its appearance and its drinkability. punklawyer (100) - USA - FEB 15, 2004
A good stout. Clear definition in the roasted malt flavor and this stout has some sweet tones to it. imdownthepub (14440) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - FEB 10, 2004
Keg at The Toad, Banbury. Dark black with nitrogen bubbles. Poor quality stout, dead as a dodo apart from the nitrogen. Thick and powdery, oily on the back of the tongue.
