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: JUL 13, 2005 Pours a very dark born, almost black with a small head of butterscotch. Flavor is a burnt, dry coffee start that develops into a choclate, malt, very smooth taste, very evenly balanced. What a stout...

Pours very dark soda-brown with a foamy tan head. A bit dry tasting at first. Chocolate expresso aroma and flavor that feels a little oily going down. Very good stout.

UPDATED: JAN 10, 2005 Pours very dark brown with dark tan head. Looks and smells very good. Roasty, coffee, carmel aroma. Malty, roasty tastes dominate. Some coffee flavor, and a hint of sweetness, and creamy, bitterness in the finish. This is a damn good stout. A definate top 10 in my book.

This beer definitly has a coffee aroma but not the freeze dried garbage but some fancy coffee that I never actually drank. Pours with little head. First sip goes down easy but leaves a little bit of bitterness. Complex flavors: you can come up with the adjectives but its good stuff.

Opaque black with a medium head. coffee aroma and roasted malts. Creamy chocolatey start, some coffee too. Buttery. End has a nice hoppy bitterness to bring you back. Very solid brew.

Roasty, malty, coffee aroma. Frothy tan head, opaque black, gorgeous lacing. Roasty, malty, and sweet. A very nice stout. A little thin.

Completely opaque black body topped by a large creamy tan head. Quite the sight. Roasted choco-coffe aroma, not too sweet as some of this style tend to be. The flavor is sweet malt up front that is then quickly replaced by a good amount of roasted bitterness. The coffe flavors linger while the choclate flavors are muchmore short lived. The bosy is silky smooth and fairly large. The body is almost slimy but aviods being unpleasant. Overall a great effort from a great brewer. Thaks to both BB63 and Indra for sending bottles my way.

rich cream is an attribute, and allows for darker harsher roasting.. Creamy head. There’s lot of malt, chocolate malt, and hops. Some expresso coffee but not overpowering. Some anise and other oils. Before dinner, after dinner.

Thanks to Nexxus for this one. Pours black with a huge tan head. Aroma of malt, coffee, fruit. Tastes malty, with some fruit, coffee, chocolate, and cognac. Great smooth finish. One of the better stouts I’ve ever had.
