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.

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.

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

UPDATED: MAY 19, 2004 Had to up my previous "12" this is a good beer..just violats the style a bit. While truly a large beer, I’d call this a porter. Way too much chocolate and lingering bitterness for the smooth roasted flavor of a stout. Impressive brown head that evolves to a rich tan. Excellent lacework. Aroma of chocolate. Flavor starts slow, with roasted flavor coming through the initial bite. Lingering bitterness in finish with no nose. Alcohol prevalent.

Bottled: Totally black coloured. Chocolate brown head. Cofee, smoke, sweetness and a fatty malt aroma. Expresso, malt, chocolate, spices in the flavour. Is smooth and light drinkable. Has a balanced bitterness in the end. Thanks Raindog for trading.

Black coloured. Notes of chocolate and coffee. Very smooth and soft mouthfeel. Notes of blue cheese (Guld Danablue) in the flavour. Medium bodied.

erway (1004) - Albuquerque, New Mexico, USA - APR 12, 2004
Pours opaque with a big brown head. Aromas of molasses, vanilla, and some sourness. Really nice lacing. Very bitter for the style. Coffee flavors. I would say they used too much black patent. Mouthfeel is a little thin due to too much CO2. This is good but I like Shakespeare much better.

BearBrewer (86) - New York, east village, New York, USA - APR 9, 2004
deep brown color, nice tan/toffee head. Malty, with coffee and chocolate notes. Wonderfully balanced with bold hop character. Great stout, an easy drink. Could drink a few in a sitting. Clean dry finish.

GregClow (2973) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - APR 7, 2004
Rich brown-black colour with a small but frothy tan head. Aroma of bittersweet chocolate and fresh roasted coffee. Full and creamy body. Big malt flavour with notes of chocolate and anise. Finish is slightly acidic and quite dry with good hop character.

Thick and motor oily in color with a tan head. Sweet coffee, chocolaty smell to it. Tastes very similar to a Victory Storm King with less alcohol. Overall, a very good stout.
