Suttree (5013) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - JUL 25, 2009
Black. Whatd you expect? Very rich, very smooth, lots of rich chocolate and coffee, maybe some vanilla and caramel, too. Very milky, and slightly sweet. Nice stuff.

chicagodri (1683) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUL 19, 2009
On tap @ FFF. Pours black with a thick tan head. Mild aroma, little chocolate. I thought it had heavy chocolate malt in the flavor and was smooth. Decent brew.

leems (406) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JUL 10, 2009
On tap @ Horse Brass, pours black with a medium off white head. Nose is caramel and maple. Flavor is roasted malt, nutty, maybe some vanilla. Overall fairly bland and boring. The palate was silky smooth. Maybe a different day a better score, but this beer bored me.

GT2 (8159) - San Diego County, California, USA - MAY 3, 2009
On tap at WBF in Raleigh. Pours very similar to Guinness: dark ruby with a nitro cream head. Good lacing (nitro though). Aroma of milk chocolate, roasted malt and coffee grinds. Taste is Guinness brown sugar, caramel, and and Irish Cream. Creamy body. Slight metallic aftertaste. Not bad.

Soonah (1120) - Tulsa, Oklahoma, USA - APR 29, 2009
The pour was ultra-dark brown, almost black. A short tan to brown head formed and there was a little spot of lacing here and there. The aroma was chocolate, boozy, caramel and brown sugar. The flavor was chocolate and booze mostly with some roasted malt and caramel thrown in. Thick, creamy mouthfeel. Rich.

Cavie (3745) - Fort Worth, Texas, USA - APR 29, 2009
UPDATED: OCT 9, 2010 So dark that I cant see through it. Creamy head that never goes away. Stout smell, cocoa and roasted nuts. Creamy and smooth mouthfeel; a coating beer. Roasted caramel flavor, with a nice finish. No lingering bitterness. Quite good. Quite. 4.5
RE-RATE 10/9/10 On tap at Overtime sports bar. Im rating this with a stuffed up nose. Yay. Solid black appearance with a brown upwards cascading head. Aroma is dusty and cocoa. Flavor is nitro savory. Chemical and lightly roasted. Finish is dry but maintains a wet mouthfeel. Dry in bitterness.

Dogbrick (7567) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - APR 3, 2009
On draught at The Pub. Pours brownish-black with a compact light brown head tha diminishes steadily. Rings of lacing on the glass. Roasted coffee and malt in the nose. Medium, smooth body with coffee and malt flavors underscored by mild hops. The finish is creamy coffee and malt. Above average all around.

kidmartinek (3507) - austin, Texas, USA - MAR 29, 2009
Dark pour with thick, dense, 1 inch foam head. Good, strong milky thick malt aroma with clear and present hops. Mouthfeek is like 2%. Laces like a blanket. Flavor is full and rich with malt, dry hoppiness, and an oak taste. A little less filling than the most popular stout. Only slight alcohol presence. A very tasty beverage.
