I got this one at an Ethiopian resturant. It came in a stubbie bottle and poured a suprisingly transparent burnt ember color. No head, and a slight, slight coller around the glass.

This did not look, taste or smell like a stout to me. It had a caramel smell, and looked the color of something between a porter and a brown ale.

The taste was also nutty with a little roastedness and a small hint of rasins.

This beer was not all that bad but it suffered in the #'s because it did not fit the style it claimed to be. Also, i think, to truely enjoy this one, you must be somewhere deep in east africa, have a dusty throat and be sitting in the shade. I feel it would taste perfect then.

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.
