Pours to a dark black body with a thick, fully lasting head (in a tall, tapered glass) with excellent lacing. In my glass (a snifter), it didn’t pour so fortunate and immediately disapated. As such, I’ll go 50-50 with a 4. The aroma is chocolate with a touch of peat and wood, too weak, however. The flavor is peaty. Lightly roasted coffee. Too weak. Very boring and average. Probably too few ingredients in it. The palate is thin and slick. Too average. I’ve had WAAAAAYYYYY better stouts. MIBRomeo (2570) - Wisconsin, USA - JUL 10, 2005
poured a dark color w/ cascading look a large thick tan head good sticky lacing. Smelled fairly mild for a stout roasted malts light carmel and a hint of vanilla. Palate is over carbonated and overly thin. Flavor is very bland and weak a roasty almost smoked malt and not much else at all. Overall nothing special.

500 ml bottle pours with a small bubbled tan head. Aroma is sweet choolate and rich day old coffee. First taste is nicely bitter but a bit thin bodied. Flavors are good though but just too damn thin. Some tobacco in there as well. NYHarvey (2153) - New York, New York, USA - JUN 29, 2005
UPDATED: JAN 9, 2007 The aroma is coffee, cocoa powder and chocolate with a light roastiness. Smells nice. It pours dark brown to blacka nd holds a fairly lasting craggy mocha head. Very thin bodied fore, but nice toasted flavors of malt, coffee and chocolate. Hints at molasses and black licorice without ever really going there all the way. The finish is watery and the flavor really drops out. This could be good, but as it stands it nearly has the body of a porter and doesn’t really satisfy my stout tooth.

This is an opaque black with a thick tan head. The aroma is of roasted barley and black malt with a little noticeable hops. The creamy mouthfeel leads to a dry roasty finish. Nice. kook (2033) - Perth, Western Australia, AUSTRALIA - JUN 18, 2005

Bottled. A big black beer with a nice tan coloured head. The aroma is full and roasty with lots of coffee notes. The taste is also nicely roasty with a little fruitiness at the end for good measure. A really good beer with typical stouty qualities. MiP (15667) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - JUN 2, 2005
Bottle. Malty aroma, a little liquorice. Black colour. Roasted, chocolate flavour and aftertaste. The body is a little thin.
