Bottle from Santey Clause: Pours a nice black, with a thick tan head. Smell seems sweet, with some chocolate and bright coffee smells (yeah, coffee, sweet?? But it smelled sweet, live with it :-p) Taste was not what I was expecting. I tasted some creaminess, with some roasted nut, coffee, and a some chocolate. The reason I say it was not expected is because it does not seem to match the smell it gave off. Still good, but not great.

(bottle) I poured this into a pint and it gave a thick creamy head right to the rim, dark color. Had a light nutty smell, the taste was much lighter and smoother than it looks, slight coffee taste, heavy milk taste. Over all very smooth and a nice stout.

Silphium (3199) - Traverse City, Michigan, USA - DEC 13, 2006
Bottle thanks to Suttree. Translucent deep brown body with reddish highlights, puffy light tan head. Aroma of coffee and licorice, with roasted malts and lactose sugars also prominent. Sharp, biting mouthfeel, the body primarily showing characteristics of roasted malt, coffee, and light sweetness imparted by the lactose. Overcarbonated and disappointingly bland.

(Bottle) Pours a black body with a small off-white head. Aroma of roastiness, lactos, oatmeal, nuts, vinous, and licorice. Flavor of raotiness, hops, chocolate, and tobacco.

12oz bottle via trade with decaturstevo. Aroma: Light cream aroma, chocolate, coffee, sweet malt, and a light sour fruitiness. Appearance: Pours black, but shows ruby highlights when held to the light. Light tan head was very full and frothy with great retention. Great lacing. Flavor: Deep maltiness with some coffee and chocolate, light smoke, a moderate sourness, and a touch of dark fruitiness. Palate: Medium bodied. Medium carbonation. Overall: Good beer. Lacking a bit in mouthfeel. Not as full as I would have liked. Also, would have preferred a little more sweetness. Still, good stuff.

Thanks to Suttree for this bottle. It doesn’t have the depth of the baltic porter, but the same heavy palate is there. Aroma much like an oatmeal stout. Flavor has light smoke and rare roast beef as well as popcorn. Black and oily appearance.

gputty (456) - Virgina Beach, Virginia, USA - NOV 19, 2006
From bottle. Pours a super dark red. Foamy tan head. Nose of light coco, chalky, liquorish and sour. Flavor follows, sour and rotten vege. Probably a bad bottle, although it looks like it’s happen to others as well.

Thanks for the bottle Ross! Pours deep, deep brown and a frothy, beige head that lasts. Leaves nice lace. Aroma is full on metal, sour milk, with the malt screaming to get through. Lots of wet cardboard and leather too. Sweet, metallic flavour, like I am chewing on a metal pipe covered in coffee. Very lactic, milky and sour. Ahh shit n’ piss, what the hell, this is just shashed ass in a bottle. Thanks for sending it Ross. I’ll have to re-rate when I get the chance.
