Aurelius (4034) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - MAY 9, 2008
Nice roasty aroma with a little chocolate/barnyard haze. Dark with a creamy head. Only slightly nutty sweet -- I wouldn’t categorize this as a sweet stout, it’s almost a porter. Medium body, moderate roasted finish that gives way to cocoa. Goes a little flat and a little watery. Enjoyable, but not very distinct. Thanks to the W family for hauling this back from MA.

hayduke (3317) - Eureka, California, USA - AUG 7, 2009
From a draft at the Egremont Inn tavern this poured a very dark nearly black color with a light tan head and some lacing. The nose is of roasted malts and coffee and chocolate. Mouthfeel is medium and somewhat slick. Flavor tends toward the malts with a lightl bitter finish. A very nice sweet stout.

Gorbalev (2906) - Ontario, CANADA - JUN 25, 2008
Bottle shared with Greg Clow, Hogtown Harry, Blankboy, and Jerc, courtesy of Harry. Stunning aroma - some alcohol, lots of chocolate, lots of roast. Wow. Black, small brown head, looks great. Taste is alet down from those lofty heights - strong, roasty, and way to lactic for me. Good overall, but man, what a start...

GregClow (2848) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 8, 2008
Bottle shared with tupalev, blankboy, HogTownHarry & jerc - HogTownHarry’s bottle. Deep brown with ruby flashes and a wispy tan head. Delicious aroma - rich and roasty with deep chocolate malt and some hints of hops. Flavour is quite roasty, with notes of coffee and chocolate, with a mildly dry and sour edge. Really nice!

sloth (2447) - Ceciltucky, Co., Maryland, USA - JUN 23, 2008
Draft at the pub. A nicely poured pint with a thin tan head, fair retention and just a little bit of spotty lace left behind. An almost black colored brew, though some brown edging is noticed. Nose of light roast, lightly dusty, caramel malts and coffe as well. Medium body, creamy on the palate, lightly oily. Pleasent roast flavors, a hint of cocoa and maybe some notes of vanilla as well, chocolatey flavors along with the roast, coffe and some berry notesl. Lightly sweet and roasty finish. Decent.

puboflyons (2048) - Allenstown, New Hampshire, USA - JUL 28, 2013
On tap at the brewpub. The pour is deep brown to just about black. They hit that on target. The aroma is of coffee and roasted malts. It had the aroma of a nice Porter. The body was thin to medium. The taste also had a nice coffee flavor and dark malts. It ended slightly dry.
