fiulijn (14552) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 14, 2010
The color is very dark, almost black; small head. The aroma is not very interesting: light sourness, dirty water, dust, paper, coffee; confusing. Light body; cheap vanilla and coffee flavor, mild, with limited roastiness. Low bitterness, some from the roasted malts. Not very good.

bhensonb (11066) - Woodland, California, USA - AUG 24, 2008
Bottle from Vintage Cellar. Opaque black color with a 2-finger tan head. Aromas of coffee and vanilla. It’s mostly frothy carbonation, so the body is difficult to pin down. Flavor is primarily coffee with some vanilla. Towards the finish some chocolate shows up. Almost tart, almost sour, the finish is not sweet, but it’s not exactly bitter. Rather different brew.
