Nice treacle aroma. Pretty deep, dark, reddish-brown. Head is brief and cream colored. Flavor is the thing. Excellent balance. Vanilla noteswith with sweet front and a slight bitter back. Nice light creamy pallette. A friendly beer to settle in with. churchill00 (154) - Austin, Texas, USA - MAR 8, 2007
D.E.L.I.C.I.O.U.S. Pours black from the bottle (which looks great). No head. Smells of chocolate. Heavy malts. Long finish. Magnificent!!! ekstedt (7056) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - MAR 8, 2007
Bottle (I just love these bottles). Pours opaque black with some dark red features and quite thin beige head. Very strong dark roasted aroma, with dark chocolate and herbal hops, and some vanilla tones. Medium to full bodied, very smooth and creamy indeed. Nice balance between some vanilla sweetness and a firm bitterness. mugabe (258) - SWEDEN - MAR 1, 2007
Bottle. Heavy aroma of chocolate and coffee. Dark but not opaque. Rapidly dissipating head. Taste is a bit thin, but the aftertaste is much better, with sweet tones of coffee, cream and berries. Padron4KM (810) - Chandler, Arizona, USA - FEB 24, 2007
16.9 oz pale green bottle in the shape of a whiskey flask.

Dark mahogany with ruby hues around the edges. Two finger coffee colored head dissipates quickly, and very little lace is left behind.
Espresso and chocolate aroma. There is an underlying sweetness that reminds me of chocolate covered cherries or blueberries
Roasty coffee and sweet creamy chocolate flavors.
Finish is long and bittersweet.
I was quite surprised. After trying the Golden Ale, which I thought was average at best, I was expecting a mediocre stout. Not the case. This was excellent. Will definitely buy again
Bottle. Dark brown, almost black with a beige, creamy head. Espresso and chocolate aroma with some underlying berries. Great chocolate and berries flavours, some espresso towards the finish. Good body. A great stout. andrewtroth (25) - Eagan, Minnesota, USA - FEB 22, 2007
Very nice. Opaque with almost no head. Smooth and creamy, not at all bitter. A good solid beer. strangaj (250) - West Chester, Ohio, USA - FEB 21, 2007
Pours almost black with a butterscotch head. Aroma has a predominant roast flavor. Taste is full of roast, medium to full bodied, but a bit watery. What I like is that this beer has a smooth finish, not too dry, not too bitter. I’ve got to say that this was a very pleasant experience wilderthanyou (758) - Guelph, CANADA - FEB 20, 2007
Solid Pitch Black, beige head that disappeared very quickly and left behind a faint ring. Aroma not strong but pleasing. Scents of coffee, and like, what I imagine a toasted cherry or something would smell like, I don’t have a refined nose or anything so it’s hard to tell. A very tasty beer, i’m impressed, this beer has skyrocketed to almost the very top of my favorites list. Flavors of coffee, and licorice are most noticable, with notes of dark unsweetend chocolate. I really can’t stress how much I am enjoying this beer. Top Notch michael-pollack (4959) - King of Prussia, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 18, 2007
500ml Bottle: Strong aroma of chocolate, alcohol, cherry, and cream. Smells a lot like Weyerbacher Raspberry Imperial Stout. Poured black with a small brown head that diminished quickly. No lacing. Opaque. Flavor is medium sweet, and lightly bitter. Tastes strongly of chocolate and cream. Also a nice hop presence. Starts with sweet chocolate, then progresses to a nice hoppy bitter middle, and finishes with a blend of the two. Medium body. Slick and creamy texture. Very nice mouth feel. Average carbonation. Long, bittersweet chocolate finish. Overall, good, but a little too sweet for me.
