This is a full-bodied stout with plenty of roast flavor as well as hints of molasses and chocolate. Ridiculous amounts of black and caramel malts make this stout smooth, creamy, and utterly opaque.

Pours black with a medium brown head. Aroma of chocolate and roasted malts. Taste is mostly chocolate with a little nuttiness. The taste was quite a bit sweeter than I expected. Very smooth, very good.

Very dark red/black. Pours with a tan-ish head. Very crisp and dry with high elements of coffee. One of the standards.

Opague and good-looking in an Ommegang goblet. Smells like dark-chocolate (just a little). The description says molasses, but it’s barely, barely there when chilled. At room temp it’s quite noticeable. Also creamy milked-coffee smells. Mouthfeel is creamy but thin, taste begins chocolately, with almost a tinge of rock-candy sweetness, delves into a roasty middle, and finishes cleanly with a hint of coffee. This is good. Reminds me of Troegs Oatmeal, but with more compelxity and not as a good a mouthfeel. Easy-drinkin’ stout.

UPDATED: JUL 10, 2004 Delicious to say the least. Thick, dark and sweet, with a perfect finish. I don’t know if it’s just me, but this tastes like slightly burnt popcorn, covered in chocolate...mmmmmmm. Agreed, it's a bit thinner and not as complex as the Expedition, but I like it more.

UPDATED: DEC 11, 2008 [bottle] Pours an opaque black with a thin tan head that laces well. Rich roasted malt nose with a hint of caramel. Taste is a bit harsh and vinegary at first but soon turns to a smooth roasted flavor with a hint of mocha and chocolate with a good strong coffee finish. Thanks MarkR. I really enjoyed this one.

pivo (2603) - GERMANY - MAY 2, 2004
Toasted, almost aged vinegary nose; jet black color; lasting lathery head. Raisins and a vinous character to the malt body with a dry coffee finish. Great great balance. Fat profile at first, but quickly reduces to a low lingering dry roast in the sides of the mouth. Nice.

Pivo - my love brought from Dayton this wonderful suitcase full with amazing beers home - good work honey :-) Pitch black brew, little layer of a head. Malty moccha nose - toasted. Head leaves nice laces. Roasted coffeebeans flavors. Vinegar-like in the beginning, in the middle smooth - lasts long with an iron/metallic finish. NICE
