355ml bottle (Kittys, Helsinki) - shared by mjs - thanks
Nice fruity stout aroma, and a touch of rotting fruit too. Good roast stout, but a dry dry palate. Nice tingle, but too dry for me. A touch disappointing after the aroma.

bhensonb (14337) - Woodland, California, USA - JUN 14, 2009
Bottle from BevMo. Pours very black with a very large tan head. Aromas of chocolate and dark toast malt. Medium minus body with mild carbonation. Flavor is chocolate, coffee and really dark malt. A bit thin, but otherwise a good drink. Seems astringent, which might equate with dry. Pretty tasty, but not to die for. Id pick it over quite a few others.

Tmoney99 (13776) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - OCT 21, 2006
Bottle. Poured black color with a huge fizzy light brown head that lasted with good lacing. Solid roasted malt aroma. Medium body with a creamy texture. Medium roasted sweet flavor with a medium bittersweet finish of moderate duration. Solid drinkable beer.

argo0 (13439) - Washington DC, USA - DEC 31, 2002
Dark brown with tan head. Aroma is mostly coffee, with some chocolate as well. Taste is bitter coffee, with a bit of chocolate. Not very rich -- tastes more like a porter than a stout.

A deep dark stout with a thin moka head. In aroma, a sweet caramel malt, butterscotch, and light chocolate. In mouth, a kight watery stout with butterscotch, faint chocolate, rather boring. On tap at Mr. Beerys , Jan 3 2011.

Black with a small tan head. Aroma of toffee, chocolate and a faint roasted note. Chocolate and burnt ashy flavour. Very one-dimensional.

Drake (12487) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 2, 2011
12 ounce bottle from State Line Liquors, opened 3/15/11. Pours a very dark brown color with a thin tan head. Good head retention and lacing. Aroma of roasted malts, sweet caramel notes and a nutty note. The taste is roasted malts, sunflower seeds and tart fruits that seem like theyre not supposed to be there. Thin bodied.
