(Big thanks to Papsoe.) 50 cl bottle. No yeast at the bottom. Black colour with a nice creamy head. Aroma of coffee and roasted malt. Mild but great flavour with a lot of roasted taste, ends up a little bitter, but nice. Palidor19 (3189) - Brandon, Florida, USA - DEC 13, 2005
UPDATED: JAN 6, 2006 A bit thin, mild taste of coffee and toasty malts. Watery yet a little oily in its texture Rastacouere (6177) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 11, 2005
Off-white film lasts a while atop the deep clear brown pour. Powdery chocolate notes climb through the heavily carbonated form underneath. Slightly woody light and malty flavours. Tartish toasted pumpernickel undertones boasts some originality in a good way all the while mineral and metallic character develops in a not so competent manner between roasted interludes. Very light palate, moderate carbonation. Average. BeerandBlues2 (13594) - Escondido, California, USA - DEC 8, 2005
500mL bottle. Pours black with some faint dark brown hints and a small, mostly diminishing tan rocky head that soon becomes a film with some lined lacing. Dark sweet roasted caramel and chocolate malt (meal, cookie) and oat aroma. Sour and oily yeast (sweat, horse blanket) flavor, dark and slighltly bitter dark chocolate notes and a light hop acidity. Dark bodied and oily, thin palate. oldrtybastrd (5002) - Fort Walton Beach, Florida, USA - NOV 30, 2005
Deep dark brown body, with small tan head. Aromas of burnt malt and hints of chocolate. The flavor is dry roasted malts, coffee, chocolate. Very Good

Pours a deep black color with a ring of light brown lace. Aroma and flavor of vanilla and coffee. The body is light with a creamy texture and low carbonation. I thought this would be way better, oh well... MartinT (9932) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 21, 2005

Anise and vanilla sweetness surface atop the chocolatey malts. Somewhat vinous after a while, this is nonetheless a pretty attractive and intriguing perfume.
Roasted malts and dark chocolate relinquish their seductive powers to the overbearing mineral dryness. Chalk is brought up, sadly helped by the agressive carbonation. Some fruitiness manages to get through, but the dry metal sheets squash all hopes for tasty nourishment.
Zealousness breeds contempt.
UPDATED: FEB 12, 2006 Well, definiitelly better than the Cask one, but I guess something was wrong with the equipment. This was a very good stout, although a little soft sometimes. Smoked, chocolate features on it. Good head, but tiring after a while. SB (334) - Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 5, 2005
From Bottlejewedekind (450) - Middleton, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 31, 2005
Dark stout, hoppy aroma, Flavor was of burnt coffee, not overpowering, and a hint of chocolate. Very watery for a stout.
Looks wicked in the glass. A full rich muddy head that lingers. Little bits of lumpy lace. Deepest opaque brown. Trace of anise in the nose, giving way to roasted malt. Aroma is late, but big on roasted cocoa beans. Vanilla. Misses a bit on the finish, but not too much. Quaffable, and not over the top like many US stouts.
