Dark brown in color with no real head to speak of. Aroma of raisins, chocolate and dark fruit hint at the alcohol and malt strenght of the beer. Was medium-light bodied and slightly bitter on the sides of the tongue. Relatively light flavored with raisins and plums most dominant in the mouth. Milky coffee came through as it warmed. Very interesting especially when you consider it came from Ethiopia.

3.6/5  rDev +11.5%
look: 2.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

A: Pours a murky brown-mahogany hue, with a thin and short-lived tan head; very light color for the style. Not the only departure from style, it turns out.

S: nice aroma of roasted malt, but mainly medium roast, with little of the dark malt aroma expected in a true stout. Nor is there any chocolate or coffee. Nicely fruity with a hints of yeast and honey.

T: Plenty of medium roasted sweet malt flavor, with faint hints of smoke and peat (think Scottish Ale) and more than a hint of dark fruit. A fine, rich aftertaste lingers on and on. [4, were it not for the departure from style]

M - Full body with good medium-low carbonation. Feel is close to the style norm despite the appearance.

O - A nice, unique beer worthy of a recommendation; just don't expect a true stout. Even though the bottle was allowed to warm for 10-15 minutes before opening, the beer improved a bit with additional warming.

Ethiopian restaurant, went for an Ethiopian beer.

A - Murky. Looks like an american strong ale, not a stout.

S - Cider, apples,

T - Maltier and more cidery than the smell.

M - Medium body, good carb, good balance.

D - Reminds me of a light barleywine. Strange beer.

Poured into a Black Raven pint glass. Pours a dark mahogany amber, thin medium brown head that dissipates to a film and ring around the glass, short lived lacing. Nice aroma of caramel malt with light roasted malt and dark dried fruit. Flavor follows, mild sweet malt with a hint of roastiness, dried fruit. Finishes with pleasant light malt and molasses. A somewhat subdued stout redeemed by a quite pleasant finish. It leans in the direction of a malty bock, but is close enough to an export stout. Medium bodied. I enjoyed this for a low ABV, light stout.

This beer was more along the lines of a bock opposed to a stout. There was no sign of dark roasted malts in my opinion. It wasn't bad, but if you're looking for a stout, this isn't one.

Raisin colored brown with hints of dark red. poured with a short beige foam that reduced to a wispy cap with a thick ring around the glass. Sweet raisin and fig aromas with dark grains in the background. On the heavier side of medium bodied with a syrupy feel brought on by the rich carbonation. Dark fruit flavors from beginning to end, highlighted by fig and raisins. Finishes with a fruity, floral hop bitterness.
