Wow, a beer from my wish list is brought to Joes’ party via Gulp, thanks! Nearly opaque with reddish highlights, frothy tan head and good lace. The aroma is sweeter than expected from a "dry stout", lots of mocha, hazelnut, floral hops, and dusty yeast esters. The taste is more like a dry stout, acidic and twangy, nutty, smoky on the finish and lightly bitter as well. The feel is average, smooth and comforting. A solid and quaffable brew indeed, worthy of a try.

Rich, dark brown color with a healthy tan head. Aromas are rich of vanilla, chocolate and roasted malts. Taste is silky smooth, nutty with chocolate and mellow bitterness. Roasted cappucino flavors mingle with light bitter hops and dried fruits. Perfectly balanced.

footy (345) - scottsdale, Arizona, USA - NOV 23, 2004
UPDATED: NOV 25, 2004 Bottle Bomber. Dark with large tan head. A nice chocolate and coffee smell. Medium bodied. Roasted malt taste with good carbonation. With this much carbonation it appears more like a porter than a dry stout. It does have a dry ending and nice bitterness throughout. Multiple tastings. Very good. Took brewery tour. Very nice people. Also bought the wife’s Blueberry drink syrup and Root Beer syrup. The kids love it. Great in ice cream Floats. The Blueberry syrup is also good mixed with Berliner Kindl Weisse.

Thanks to Frank and Donna. Pours with a large head, pitch black, opaque, chocolate in the nose. Semi-sweet chocolate taste, creamy and smooth on the palate.

chronictonic (472) - Oreland, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 17, 2004
Brought about about 10 of these from a trip to Maine earlier this summer. Pours very dark with a light toffee colored head. Aroma is of deep dark chocolate and roasted malts. Flavor is robust with some nice coffee malt bitterness. Mild hopping at the end leaves the goodness of the malt flavor on your palate.

5000 (6184) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - OCT 6, 2004
Bottle pours black with dark chocolate highlights, large sandy colored froamy head, with spotty lacing.   Strong Nestle Quik like aroma.   Head has now settled to a small fizzly film.   Cocoa, slight tobacco, sweet chocolate malts, with a very subtle roasted malt flavor.   Low bitterness, quite smooth going down.   Body and mouthfeel are a tad above average.   Not as dry or chalky as I would have though, much to my liking.   Finishes with only a slight hop bitterness, but mainly roasted malts and subtle cocoa flavors.   Could be a bit thicker, but otherwise this was quite delicious.   Thanks goes out to atpayne for the trade!

Crosling (1863) - Loveland, Colorado, USA - OCT 3, 2004
Pours a deep brown with a large dense tan head that laces very well. Raisins, chocolate milk, charcoal, cocoa and vanilla in the nose. Pleasantly flavorful with dry chocolate and cocoa up front. The mid-palate is stale of dark fruits. The finish is dry with cookie dough, honey and vanilla. Very well balanced and a well brewed stout.

The last time I had this was in Southwest Harbor, Maine. I was enjoying a nice greasy plate of fried clams with a 5oz plastic cup full of this brew oceanside. The circumstances tonight are vastly different. Trendous caramel head and deep burgundy in appearance. Deep roasted flavor with some wine-like flavors, fruity yeast, and bittering hops. A decent stout, but not great.

Wow! After trying this and not being that impressed I come here and find I’ll being going against the grain. Was a totally average beer imo. Dark brown pour with a decent tan head. Nose was roasted malt as usual. Body was a little thin for my tastes. Good full flavored beer but nothing is jumping out and making a statement. I think lackluster may be a little strong but nothing to write home about isnt.

Brew # 01501... Poured a dark black with just a little red around the edges, light khaki head, and some sparce lacing on the glass. Lots of chocolate in the aroma. Brownies, fudge, and dark fruits. Chocolate and roast coffee taste. Sweet, possibly even some alcohol noticed here? Smooth and creamy mouthfeel with light carbonation. I prefer dry stouts to be a little lighter in alcohol, but that is not knocking this one. Very well balanced for what it is, and very fulfilling. Big props to the parents for bringing this back from their vacation for me!
