CapFlu (4820) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 12, 2005
(22oz bottle) Sampled at RBSG 2005 in Montreal. Pours a thin, frothy yeallow head with a deep, near opaque body. Nose of coffee, motor oil and alcohol. Very gritty cocoa flavour balanced with a hoppy fruitiness in the finish. I really was hoping I’d like this more since I am travelling to Maine later this month...

Whenever I get up to Bar Harbor ME, I make sure that I have at least a few of these at my favourite local bar, and I always bring home at least one case of this absolute MANNA from heaven. Aroma of this beer is deceptively bitter, but still complex, the color is a deep dark, to almost black as any stout should be. But the flavour is fantastic. Not at all bitter, but mildly sweet and chockletey. The beer is full to almost heavy bodied, if you are hungrey when you order one of these with your dinner order, you will be full before the main course arrives. This is definately my favourite!

porterhouse (1580) - Boothbay, Maine, USA - JUN 16, 2005
(22 oz. bottle) Huge thick tan head, which ultimately collapses kind of haphazardly so the lacing’s not very good. Deep dark brown body. Aroma of roasted grain and chocolate. More sweet than bitter, mouthfeel a little fizzy, wish you could grab the head a little more. Awesome chocolatey, toasted flavor which lingers a long, long time. Just wish it was a little creamier, but this is real good stuff.

2005 bomber from Downeast Beverage shared with Muzzlehatch on 5/22/2005 at the "Crappy Maine beers plust two random Belgians and a Cider" tasting. Dark chocolate brown, light fuscia hints on the edges when held to the light. Tons of sediment in the bottle, highly unfiltered. Tan head is initially medium-sized but recedes rather quickly to cover then nothing. Coating is left behind by the viscous liquid. Aroma of sweet prunes covered in chocolate, fresh roasted barley and plenty of java notes. Bit of vinousness, with more fat sweet malt sugars. Flavor is a mix of moderate roastiness and sweet chocolate to start, and being quite flavorful if perhaps somewhat overhyped, the beer could really go either way from the first notes that hit the palate. Fortunately, a substantial, thick, chewy malt providing a full body and unfiltered, chewy mouthfeel allow the flavors to seemlessly roll together in the mouth and some notes of soy and smoke, raisins and molasses all jump in to the mix. Quite rich and drinkable it is, and even more so for a style which can, at times, be watery and very cookie-cutter-like. Bit of thinning on the end, but it is minor. Some vinousness and bits of oily roast linger, giving way to the bittersweet baker’s chocolate seen throughout. High score from me because it is relative to style. This is still no Allagash, IMHO.

lagermonkey (725) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - MAY 9, 2005
Pours black with a big, creamy, lacy, brown head. Smells malty. Big thick malt without alot of the burnt or chocolate aromas you get from most stouts. Taste is huge and smoky. The taste definitely display a big burnt malt flavor with light chocolate undertones. this beer is smooth like black velvet. Big full body with a dry bitter finish. Nicely done. Very complex brew and did I mention tasty? Reminds me that I need to keep more of this on hand...

Reddish brown, really flat and creamy, nose of coffee and chocolate, chalky. Flat but tasty, creamy, coating my mouth with nice cocoa flavor and finishes nice and dry/

Thanks to cmaruschak for the trade. I can say with pretty good certainty that this is the best Dry Stout I have had. If Guinness tasted like this I probably never would have branched out to new beers. Pours virtually black with a thick and foamy beige head. Thin lacing. Nice aroma of coffee, chocolate and roasted nuts. Rich and smooth body with a flavorful blend of coffee, cocoa, malt and hops. The finish is bittersweet chocolate and hops. Well done.
