Pours dark with a tan head. (It is a stout after all.) Roasted malt and a bit of dark fruit on the nose. Upon tasting Raisin and plum are more pronounced up front with toasties. Light mouthfeel with good carbonation. Chalky texture which I'm a huge fan of. Fruit hits again then a lasting slightly bitter finish.

This stout is way overrated.
It has a cloudy look, and a very bad cigarette aftertaste to it.
Believe me, there are way better stouts out there.
The bottle was fresh, so no contamination or aging carbonyls.

Very nice Stout, pours a dark brown head and has a real chocolate flavor. It’s a good Stout to have with a sandwich or meal, not over powering but not too light either. AmEricanbrew (7080) - Same Trailer, Different Park, Louisiana, USA - NOV 22, 2012

pours a jet black with a small brown head, and good lacing.
smell is of chocolate, licorice, coffee, a touch of caramel, and some dark fruits.
taste is creamy, a little bit of sour malt, chocolate, roastiness, licorice, a tad amount of coffee, and some fruit. ends a little bitter and dry. wlajwl (7205) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - JUN 8, 2012
Aroma is mildly funky, fruit and a hint of coffee. The flavor is coffee, fruit, a mild funk/Belgian quality and a tart/acidic finish.
