COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This big, roasty stout takes flavor to the extreme. We aren’t afraid to use plenty of rich roasted barley and a mountain of hops to give this full-bodied stout that little extra something you’ve been looking for in a beer.

imperial stout tasting, march 04: not an imperial, but thanks to beerhugger for bringing this anyway. almost black, beige head. roasted malt, coffee aroma with hints of molasses and green apple. starts sweet with a bit of vanilla. roasty and coffee-ish. a fine stout.

wunderbier (1434) - Tampere, FINLAND - JUN 9, 2004
Bottle, snifter. Average, creamy, light brown head is well lasting and sits on a deep black body. Chocolate, coffee, roasted malt (M); flowery hops (L); date and charcoal aromas. Lightly sweet flavor becomes a lightly bitter, lightly acidic finish. Medium-light body, watery texture, soft carbonation. The bottom line is: more of a sweet stout than dry...disappointingly thin.

harlequinn (2744) - Tacoma, Washington, USA - JUN 8, 2004
Nice oily pour, with a quickly diminshing tan head. Nice carbonated dry stout aroma, with some very sweet and rich chocolate aromas and flavors. A very nice lingering aftertaste, that is very pleasing on the palate. Unfortunately the finish is slightly salty.

Ringo (963) - Loveland, Colorado, USA - JUN 8, 2004
Nice dry stout. Looks great in a dimple mug with a large, rocky head and lots of lace; and it is rich in roasty, lasting flavor.

DavidP (1747) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 1, 2004
Black body with a stiff tan head. Vanilla/milk chocolate aroma with a rich roast coffee bite. The flavor starts with apple esters and continues with weak coffee bitterness as well as some chocolate. The finish has a ton of bitter, grassy hops. The mouthfeel is a bit thin but otherwise an enjoyable dry stout.

bscobie (1) - Texas, USA - MAY 8, 2004 does not count
Only for those initiated to stouts. Almost black, a little red - lovely appearance. Unfortunately a poorly lasted mediocre head, but still has a nice mouthfeel and a wonderful chocolate/coffee aroma. Maybe a little too lively, but definitely nicely bitter and moderate length finish.

Probiere (992) - Iowa, USA - MAY 6, 2004
This is what java tastes like on the rare occasions when I have a cup in the morning. Satisfying yet somehow foreign to my tastebuds. The nose is bitter roast and maybe some molasses. Mouthfeel is rather thin. Taste is like a decent coffee. Great lacing and pleasantly roasted aftertaste. Can’t knock it, but I can’t truly love it either, not being a coffee lover. Many thanks to Beaver for this brew! =)

SpringsLicker (3108) - Tennessee, USA - APR 28, 2004
This opaque black brew pours an average sized creamy brwon head that gives off a toasted/nutty molasses aroma. The flavor is complex and richly malty with a slightly burnt roasted malt aftertaste. This full bodied Stout is well done.

zach8270 (3352) - Henrietta, New York, USA - APR 27, 2004
UPDATED: DEC 11, 2008 [bottle] Pours a dark black with a little red around the edges of the glass and a very thin and quickly dissipating tan head. Roasted chocolate aroma with possibly a tiny hint of nutmeg? Strong coffee taste at first with a slight hint of chocolate and a bitter coffee finish. A bit on the watery side for a stout. Thanks to MarkR for another quality brew.

egajdzis (5248) - Spring Mount, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 12, 2004
Poured a dark reddish black with a one inch thick tan puffy head and nice lacing. Sweet, roasted, chocolate aroma. Chocolate, coffee, roasted taste with a rather average mouthfeel. Nothing all that special.
