COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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 a dark chocolate brown and thick with a creamy dense head. Aroma is rich with roasted malts, notes of coffee and molasses . Body is creamy and smooth with modest carbonation. Flavor is a nice blend of sweet, bitter and dry. Really balanced out well. Sweet coming from roasted malt that reminds me of dry cocoa with a bitter finish. Overall one of the most even stouts I've had.

UPDATED: NOV 1, 2005 From the keg in my living room: Incredible beer. The bottled version is good, but this is unbelievably creamy and rich. Roasted chocolate flavor and aroma. Kind of got some burnt toast in there (it’s good though). This is sooo good. If you can get this is the bottle, consider yourself lucky. If you can get it on tap, consider yourself blessed.

Deep black pour with a great tan head. Lovely aroma full of coffee beans and vanilla. Full taste of coffee and slight vanilla. Great balance. Such a wonderful beer. Thanks Jeremy (jgb9348) for bringing down this great piece of art to my house!

Beer pours (in Chimay glass) a pitch black oily liquid that light can not penetrate with a medium amount of dark caramel colored head that dissipates somewhat, but stays throughout. Aroma is of coffee BEAN, fresh toasted ground coffee, vanilla, sweet. Flavor is of coffee bean, vanilla, with a faint to small hoppiness. No alcohol detected. Not dry, maybe faintly. Overall, a fantastic brew. Another one for the mix. Sampled at 68 degrees Fahrenheit.

This one pours a very dark color with a small brown head that leaves a small bit of lacing on the glass. The aroma was comprised of roasted malts and hints of coffee and chocolate. The flavor was much the same as the aroma: mostly roasted malts, coffee and chocolate with possibly a hint of caramel. I didn't find anything special about this brew and there are other milk stouts that better represent the style.

A thick brown head sits atop a black body and some lacing is left on the glass. The robust aroma is malty and roasty with subtle notes of cofee, a slight bitterness and a very sweetness. The flavor is malty, very roasty with bitter notes and a touch of coffee. Full bodied, smooth and relatively dry.

Thick rich black stout. My first impression was this was an imperial, but it settled nicely after a few more sips. Coffee, a lot or malt. Sits well, and improves with temp. Kalamazoo knows stout.

Nexxus (261) - Apple Valley, Minnesota, USA - NOV 11, 2003
UPDATED: MAR 11, 2004 Almost black with a thick tan head. A massive coffee, chocolate and roast aroma. A thick creamy, oily body with moderate carbonation. Very strong, intense roast flavors together with coffee, chocolate and hops. Head is mostly diminishing, but leaves a nice tan layer behind. My favorite stout so far. Excellent.

TChrome (1417) - Bedford, Texas, USA - NOV 11, 2003
UPDATED: MAR 14, 2004 Wonderful aroma of chocolate and smoke. Appearance is dead on black with tan head that is mostly diminishing. Flavor is mostly smokey, bordering on burnt. A bit overly smokey for my taste.
