Radek Kliber (7290) - Toronto (Can) Krotoszyn (Pol), POLAND - SEP 4, 2005
Dark brown, with creamy tan head, light carbonation. Slightly acidic roast in aroma, some sweet malt around. Creamy mouthfeel with subdued coffee roast character. To this we welcome acidic -bitter woody flavours. Oak woody feel stay long on your lips.

Pours black with a tall brown head. Very roasty all the way through, slightly burnt chocolate note. Very smooth with a sweet coffee finish. Very well made stout with a nice hop finish cleaning out the the big sweetness in the end.

12 oz. bottle. Just as an aside, the bottle is reminiscent of the old steinie bottles. Pours a deep black with a nice frothy coffee colored head. Bitter chocolate aroma. Flavor is again bitter chocolate and roasted malt. Nicely balanced with the hops. A delicious brew.

Reid (2478) - Salem, Oregon, USA - AUG 22, 2005
came ina 12 oz brown short neck. Very attractive looking dark, dark almost pitch black beer with purpleish toes, small very dark tan head good for the style. Very strong and appealing aroma of dark unsweetned chocolate and sweet overripe black cherries.Cocoa powder and malted milk also Weird after the great aroma I was expecting more, but what i got was a very sour , lactic tasting stout, with barelly a bit of chocolate flavour near the end and a very sweet aftertaste. Mouthfeel was pretty mundane and too watery for the style. I found this beer not very drinkable..a let down . I hope this was just an odd bad bottle.

Thank you secret santa AKA Frylock, 12 oz bottle: Pretty dark, almost black, with a lasting beige head. Chocolate, roasty, and caramel in even balance in the nose initially, with roasty getting the nod in the end. A bit chalky w/ an herbal hop as well as some sweet brown sugar and hints of perfumey alcohol. Well balanced, chocolatey, roasty, and toasted malty! Roasted bitterness in the finish with some herbal hop flavor and bitternes. Toffee, sweet brown sugar, and a bit of dark grain tartness from mid palate into the finish which is semi sweet and roasty, chocolate, w/a lasting aftertaste. Lower carbonation, smooth, and medium bodied. Damn! This is a fine stout and overall beer!!!! Slightly sweet up front, well balanced overall, and lightly semi sweet in the finish. This is a great beer for one taste or an entire evening. Well done!!!!!!

I think I got this bottle from Springslicker. Pour black with a full brown head. Aroma of cocoa and roasted malt. Lightly sweet flavor full of chocolate. Light roastiness. Full bodied. I thought this beer rocked and I have no clue how old it is. Highly recommended.

12 oz bottle thanks Sammy. Pitch black beer with a thin brown head. Sweet plummy aroma, roast, molasses and a touch of toast. Creamy texture. Flavour is sweet and slightly fruity, licorice and a touch of pine as well. Toast and faint vanilla along with moderate roastiness. A bit thin, but still good.

Black w/ thin, frothy brown foam. Roasty notes of bitter chocolate & coffee on the nose w/ hints dark fruit. Medium feel-thin for style. Fairly simple flavour of chocolate & coffee w/ a light bitterness.

This beer is roasted deliciousness! Incredibly black pour with a fluffy caramel head. Roasted malts, bitter chocolate and toasted marshmallows on the nose. Nice bitterness comes out in the flavor with a lingering burnt malt flavor and hop presence. Similar to St Ambroise but without the velvet. Delicious!
