Dark brown with a fizzy tan head. Sweet chocolate molasses and dry spice aroma and taste with some heat to the finish. Rciesla (5499) - Exit 15W, New Jersey, USA - DEC 10, 2010
Bottle. Pours a bruin body with an off white head, with okay lacing left behind the pour. Very malty body, malt syrup, sweet, bourbon esk, old oatmeal mush. Hop character is totally oxidized, leaving a leaf y and metallic finish. Past prime i suppose. Bamsen78 (5400) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - DEC 14, 2013
Bottle from Embrouille - thank you! Pours cloudy very dark brown with ruby shades and airy but rocky and stable off-white head. Dark, fruity aroma with notes of malt, caramel, and chocolate. Sweetish, fruity and slightly vinous flavour, with notes of malt, chocolate and liquorice. Roasty and slightly vinous finish. Good, although it tastes more like a Barley Wine than a Foreign Stout.

(33cl bottle) Day2 of the 2012 Advent Calendar. Pours a medium beige head atop a black body. Nose of sherry, red licorice and cocoa powder. Very sharp, sour front with a grainy yeast mid-palate. Not sweet and totally different aroma from flavour. Hides the 7.2% ABV exceptionally well. Good.
