A nice, solid version of the style. I’ve never been too terribly partial to dry stouts, but this one is pretty flavorful. Big chocolate notes are balanced by a very dry finish, with just a trace of roastiness in there. I tend to agree with a lot of other raters, that this brew would benefit from a thicker feel. But as is it’s well worth keeping on hand. jercraigs (11072) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 25, 2007
Bottle courtesy of Mabel. Black body with a big creamy brown head and decent lacing on the glass. (4+) Sweet mocha aroma with light notes of chocolate and coffee and hints of moderate roast. (7+) Fairly dry bitterness in the flavour is less sweet than I expected from the aroma. Sweet mocha and malt in the middle gives way to a lingering roasty dry chocolate in the finish/ (7+). Smooth palate is creamy and smooth but not as full bodied as I’d like. (3+) A very solid stout. 4+/7+/3+/7+/15-16

Bottle courtesy of dirty_martini. Thanks! Pours an opaque blackish brown with a thin tan head. Aroma of molasses, vanilla. Creamy medium body and light carbonation. The taste is chocolate, coffee and smoke. Dry pine and espresso finish, 5000 (6900) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - MAR 15, 2007
Bottle: Black in color, very little light on the edges, large fluffy beige head, clumpy lacing.   Lactose laced roasted malt sweetness on the nose.   Some pale fruit skin as well.   Very subtle cocoa and bittersweet bakers chocolate on the tongue.   Backside is quite roasty, with minor campfire.   Mild bitterness throughout.   Finish is quite dry, with lingering bakers cocoa, lactose sweetness, and even a bit of charred wood.   A little thin on the body and mouthfeel, at least not as big as I would have hoped.   Still fairly decent tho.   Thanks Nick! jredmond (8839) - New York, New York, USA - MAR 5, 2007
UPDATED: NOV 26, 2007 Thanks Wallace. Pj said it reminded him of a cold winter morning in starbucks. This stout was pleasurable on multiple levels.

Clear red brown coloured with a beige head.
Light roasted aroma of overriped fruits and hops.
Roasted flavour of coffee, chocolate, liquorice and hops. madsberg (11799) - Søborg, DENMARK - FEB 13, 2007
Bottled. Reddish brown coloured. Dense brown head. Roast, light sweetness and grassy aroma. Flavour of herbal roast, chocolate and light liqourice. Is medium bodied and dry. Herbal light roast bitterness in the end. Ungstrup (38945) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - FEB 13, 2007
Bottled. A deep red beer with a brown head. The aroma is sweet malty with notes of caramel, hops, and coffee. The flavor is sweet with strong notes of roasted malt, as well as lighter notes of alcohol and grapefruit, leading to a dry roasted end with notes of oatmeal lingering around. The body is a bit on the thin side inspite of the 6.8% ABV and the oatmeal.
