Kohtalaisen juotava Stout. Maistuu hyvin perinteikklt. Kyseist stoutin kaltaista tuotti Titanikilla sijainnut panimo.

mabjork (692) - Vasa, FINLAND - MAR 17, 2006
Bottled. Dark brown / black in colour. Minor beige head.It has a fresh aroma of roasted malt, some vanilla and fruit and you can sense a background sourness. The flavour consists of roasted malt, BUT what really strikes me is the carbonation and an underlying sweetness It has a sweet an fresh aftertaste. I really enjoyed this one

fiulijn (19824) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 7, 2006
Black color, the head disappears quickly. Aroma of roased malt, chocolate and vanilla. The body is a bit too thin, with a lot of roasted malt and some chocolate; too much bitter without being interesting.

bluevegie (3073) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - FEB 23, 2006
Solid dark body with ruby tinges and a decent looking, light tan head. Aroma wasnt all that pleasant, smelt like engine oil and then christmas pudding. Fortunately the taste doesnt follow the aroma as much, a little bit of burnt rubber, milky coffee and piney hops, was expecting a bit more roasted characters otherwise this is good but not that complex and a little thin.

mullet (849) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - JAN 18, 2006
The round chocolaty, oaty, macchiato, tobacco, grainy dark malt aroma really impressed me and reminded me quite a bit of the W&P stout. Tastes relatively simple, more or less how it smells with some cookies and cream (not cookies-and-cream.) Finishes just a touch weak - with a bit more roast or hop in the back itd be great. Nice dark tan head, with some clarity. The only other knock is that its just a little clean and one-dimensional. Its really just malt, but its good malt.

hughie (3996) - Bedford, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - JAN 2, 2006
Dark brown with a medium head. A roasted, yeasty, black coffee aroma. I thought the taste began well with chocolate and some background sourness, but it faded fast and there wasnt the bitterness I was expecting.

highlandlad (1480) - Blue Mountains, AUSTRALIA - DEC 30, 2005
This bottle-conditioned English stout has twice been declared CAMRAs Champion Bottled Beer of Britain, so perhaps Im missing something. Its by no means a typical stout, but I cant pretend I really took to it. Served at room temperature, it poured the expected impenetrable dark brown with a tall head that left spackled foam down the glass. Great bitter aroma of espresso coffee grounds, sump oil and forest fire. Very big aroma for the modest 4.5% abv. Ashy flavour profile, very dry and bitter. Very much at the dry end of the stout scale, verging on puckering. Has that espresso burnt rubber bitterness, without much in the way of balancing chocolate sweetness. The mouthfeel was thin and a little flat. (500ml botle, Megabeer, bb 17/2/07)
