Cloudy bronw color, short brown head. Aroma of roasted malts, coffee, licorice, bit spicy. Roasted taste, very malty, some oatmeal? Bitter and malty. skortila (6014) - Baarn, NETHERLANDS - APR 13, 2005
Aroma of roasted malts, coffee and fruits. Opaque, black coloured with a lasting, medium, brown head. Taste is sweet, roasted malty with coffee and some fruit. Well balanced brew, but not too complex. jerohen (2379) - Bussum, NETHERLANDS - APR 12, 2005
Dutch Ratebeer meeting. Damnit, i was laughing at caesar because he forgot to write down comments for a beer, but now i see i forgot to write down a rating myself! So this one’s from memory (not my strongest point). Opaque, lasting brown head. Roasted malts, coffee and quite some sweetness. Thick mouthfeel, but not overly complex. bierkoning (13821) - La Tropica/Doarp, NETHERLANDS - APR 11, 2005
Black, opague. Roasted malt aroma and flavor with grapes. Hints of coffee and caramel. Thick, but also a bit watery for its ABV. Lacks complexity, but the flavor is quite OK. jbrus (4988) - Delft, NETHERLANDS - APR 10, 2005
Bottled. Earthy chocolat and fruity aroma. Black color, brown head, good lace. Straighforward sweet strong stout, fruity and roasted chocolat. Pours thick and feels full.

Black in colour with big caramel coloured head. smooth choclate/coffee flavour. Is better slighly warmer than straight from the fridge. Good bitterness afterwards.

Black in colour with a decent tan head. Standard stout aromas and it was very easy drinking considering the alcohol strength still I was expecting a lot more from this beer. voota (765) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - AUG 8, 2004
Bottled- - Very dark head, heavy coffee aroma. Very bitter and strong burnt malty flavors coming through, becoming stronger and more refined as the beer warmed, with a chocolate taste noticeable. A contender for my favorite stout. Must be consumed at close to room temperature to enjoy the full flavour of the beer. Great beer, highly recommended.

Bottle (longneck): Black with a brown rocky head that diminished fast. Nice aroma of coffee beans and bitter chocolate but developing very strong yeast (vegemite) character towards the end. The flavour followed this nicely, yet I was very dissapointed with the palate. A bit powdery and over carbonated. Would like to try it on tap though.

Spicy aroma with black apperance and no head. Burtn bitter malt flavour with smooth palate.
