First i think of english brown-ale, but i guess this has to much rosted malt to be that, so it must be a stout, or something like that. Notes of coca, and dark rosted malt, but not so much sweet. the alc. give this good volume.

Rating #200! And strikingly similar to rating #199! Bottle, best by 03/08/2009. Is that March or August? Regardless, aroma of raisins, other dark fruits, sweet/dark malt. Flavor has some sweet chocolate come into play. At first a bit overwhelming in the bitter raisin department, but that smoothed out after a few sips. Very drinkable. Interesting stout. Solid.

Bottle. Pours a cloudy brown with a nice tan head. Aroma strongly of raisin as well as brown sugar. Flavor again of raisin, sweetness, slight hint of coffee. Even though I don’t like raisin flavor in general, it was enjoyable in this beer. Not too sweet and the alcohol was well hidden. This tasted like a Belgian strong ale, not a stout. Good beer.

UselessGdTaste (365) - Long Beach, California, USA - JUN 2, 2008
Not so much the stout that I am used to. It was very pleasant to drink. Not as heavy. In fact, I have had plenty of heavier porters. It was very good though. Just not expected.

3.2
JonR888710 (999) - Cochabamba, BOLIVIA - MAY 28, 2008
Medium mahogany brown body, very light tan-brown, buttery head. Aroma is fine ingredients, sugar, sweet grapes maybe, some tart, acidic notes. Taste is also sweet, well-proportioned with grapes, alcohol, dark honey/molasses and bitter hops, drying coffee-like. Smooth, almost oily on palate. A little too sweet, reminds me of a lot of the Russian/Eastern European porters lately, just with better hops. Not a stout at all. Average.

3.4
JohnnyJ (5569) - San Diego, California, USA - MAY 16, 2008
Pours a dark brown off-white head. Chocolate, coffee, sweet malt, and dark fruit. Flavors are a little bit lactic and finishes with some bitter hops.

3.3
Beerman6686 (6611) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 15, 2008
Poured a very dark brown color with a off white head. Aroma is of chocolate bitterness and coffee. Flavor is mainly weak chocolate, a bit fruity and a nice bitter finish.
