radiomgb (2686) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 1, 2007
Deep black in colour, long lasting tan coloured head, some light lacing. The aroma is very roasty, some liquorice, pure chocolate, sugar. The flavour is creamy, roasty, nutty, some liquorice, dark chocolate, cold coffee, light sweetness throughout. Creamy bitter mouthfeel, medium body, medium carbonation. Finishes long and roasty, very creamy. The alcohol only comes through at the very end but even then its still just a slight warmth. Excellent body on this, wonderfully roasty.

650ml bottle obtained in a trade with <a href=http://www.ratebeer.com/ViewUser.asp?U target=blank>jah noth, thanks Stephen.

22 oz. Black color. Chocolate brown head. Intriguing malt complexity in the nose, with hints of chocolate, fudge and light coffee. On the palate, its awfully complex, with hints of dried chocolate, light espresso, fruit and mild roast. Clearly a great stout.
