UselessGdTaste (365) - Long Beach, California, USA - OCT 12, 2006
Over here on the West Coast, we have a lot of hoppy beers. Thus, when I think stout beer, I think of lots of bitter. This was a lot smoother than what I am used to, and I enjoyed that. It had the coffee and chocolate, but with a gentle approach.

Dark amber color with a nice creamy head. Upon first sip I actually didnt like it. I felt it was very bitter and tasted terrrible. Then I kept drinking. After I got used to the flavor, it is amazingly complex and tasty. It tasted like dark choclate with black coffee, mixed with burnt wood. It is very good. I would certantly suggest trying this beer if you enjoy strong bitter beer.

Furseth (2158) - Kunglv, SWEDEN - OCT 6, 2006
Bottle. Clear black colour, with a nice brown creamy head. Aroma of coffee, burned wood and a nice bitter nose in the end. Flavor is almost the same. Medium body, nice coffee bitter medium finish.

troyc (2869) - Illinois, USA - SEP 28, 2006
(Bottle) Pours black with lasting brown head. Full bodied with an oily mouthfeel. Roasted coffee and caramalized brown sugar notes. Slightly bitter, but nothing overpowering. I liked this stout quite a bit.

EithCubes (5772) - New Jersey, USA - SEP 28, 2006
(Pretty but way too transparent) Bottle. Dark brown to pitch, large creamy dark brown head. Wonderful aroma, sweet and malty with chocolate, coffee, and molasses/raisins. Heavy roasted taste with healthy notes of smoke. Alternation between strong roasted bitterness and (almost) cloying sweetness. Delicious dark bitter chocolate. Smooth mouthfeel but a bit thin; finish is dry and bitter, aftertaste long and pleasant. Touch of oily lactose and some sour roast. The numerous descriptions of this as simplistic are not off-target, but they are irrelevant - this is just too tasty.

jetzler (622) - oklahoma city, Oklahoma, USA - SEP 27, 2006
Bottle 54F Pint. Sweet aroma, quite a bit of malts fairly dark, with little to no hop aromas, a touch of alcohol is present. Rich mocha aroma with a bit of perhaps cinammon. Pours very dark black, completely opaque, very dark in color with a dark thin head. Finishes slightly bitter, with very deep dark coffee and rich dark chocolate notes. Like a very rich chocolate milk, that finishes slightly like burnt toast. A nice warm tongue feel, with decent carbonation and a medium mouthfeel. Not huge on the tongue but big and full. Not sourness at all. Only sweet and bitter. Pretty nice stout on of the better one I have tasted thus far.

demitriustown (1188) - Sterling Heights, Michigan, USA - SEP 23, 2006
bottle: pours a thick black with a tan head which is minimal. Aroma is chocolate, caramel, very malty, licorice, alcohol, and slightly hoppy. Taste is got a nice roastiness to it, chocolate, somewhat nutty, nice and big malt notes, nice and thick, and an alcohol tinge to it. Palate is bitter, not carbonated at all, long and lively. Overall, This is a decent Sweet stout. This is a really solid beer.

RAYBOY01 (2012) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - SEP 22, 2006
Intensely black pour with a slight, though lingering, tan head. Rich roasted nose with chocolate and brown sugar notes. Flavor is roasted toffee, molasses, chocolate, touches of espresso, brown sugar and caramel. A s;ightly astringent or metallic tinge on the tongue. I could have used a little more carbonation. Pretty decent stuff, though!

Wonderful chocolate aroma, and slight chocolate flavor. Pours black with a small tan head. Wonderful oaty toasted flavor, slight metallic flavor, with a great coffee aftertaste. A very nice stout.

StueyD (1579) - Heacham, Norfolk, ENGLAND - SEP 11, 2006
A black, brown coloured beer with a weak milky coffee coloured head. From the moment the bottle is opened there is a distinctly fruity aroma, sweet berries, red grapes, then a roasted coffee smell, that blends into liquorice, caramel and malt. The taste is bitter with a full mouthfeel. There is a complex array of fruit flavours to begin with then there is a smooth, mellow malty flavour, slightly sour, with liquorice, burnt sugar, dark chocolate and coffee leading to a long, bitter sweet finish. (Bottle - purchased from the brewerys stall @ the 2005 Sandringham Christmas Food Fair).
