thanks to Owen for the beer.
Bottle dated 2004. Yikes
Pours dark brown nearly black. Great carbonation for the age. Long lasting light brown head. Lots of spotty lacing.
Nose is very oxidised. Dry cardboard, tree roots, licorice, and some char and ash. Quite pleasant for the age and has held up reasonably.
Taste is wet cardboard, burnt licorice root, and roast malts.
Not a bad for the amount of oxidation but a shadow of what is was. Hansen (8587) - Assentoft, DENMARK - MAR 14, 2009
Dark brown coloured. Head is light brown and mostly lasting. Aroma is burnt, roasted, laqurice, dark bread. Flavor is moderate sweet and bitter. Medium to full body. Oily texture. Soft carbonation. FrankJohansen (3622) - Sabro, DENMARK - MAR 14, 2009

Smells and tastes like roasted malts with no hint of hops. This beer has a smooth taste and mouthfeel, but if carbonation had a specific taste, this beer has it. It is very carbonated, but not in a sense that it is brimming with bubbles...more like a sensation on your tongue. All in all, a good stout.

Black and fizzy with small head that does not last. Roasted malt aromas, but high carbonation tickles the nose (not good). Very thin palate. Much too watery for a stout. Spiesy (2338) - Sydney, Greater London, AUSTRALIA - MAY 5, 2004
Bottled, at Paddy’s Brewpub, Flemington, Australia. duff (5484) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAY 2, 2004
Dark brown with a slightly reddish hue. Not looking like the classic stout or foreign stout for that matter but still decent. If not for the appearance I noted that it was very similar to the Srilanken Lion Stout, just thinner.
The gathering: duff, eczematic, Linc, motelpogo, Spiesy, Sully.
Not too bad, but pretty thin and diluted for a stout. fairly tasty and easy to drink though. Sweet caramel and light roasted flavours, pretty flat however. Linc (739) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - APR 29, 2004
17th beer of the night? Sheesh I did get there late! Horribly sweet aroma, tastes like any other weak sweet stout, short lived roasty flavour, touch of charcoal with lingering sweetness.
