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.

Gusler (2653) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - OCT 24, 2002
The pour ’Darker than The inside Of A Cow’, the head extravagant, large olde frothy ’Thang’, long lasting, chocolate brown in color, the lace in voluptuous sheets. Nose, coffee, bitter-sweet chocolate, roasted malt, ah yes my friends one ’Sniffable Beer’. Front malt, sweet, the top portly, the finish is benignly acidic, stupendously hopped, lordly dry. It’s a good thing that I have to beg borrow and steal these beers, as my total would be much less as why sample the rest, when you can have the best. #10 of their beers sampled, not a ’loser in the bunch’. Trust the olde spavined ’Gusler’, when I tell you this line of beers is phenomenal. Ranks a well deserved #66 on my current 1000 beer master list.

This beer pours a wonderful Mississippi River brown head. It’s big and full without being overbearing and sloppy. I guess that’s translates into being well balanced. When it warms there is a sweet roasted Turkish coffee flavor. In the spirit of the World Series...it’s a solid hard line drive in the gap double. I’ll take it anytime but it’s not a homerun.

HighGravity (926) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - OCT 21, 2002
This beer poured perfectly into my glass, producing and excellent head. The nose consists of roasted barley and cocoa powder. Nice full body. Within my first, few sips I get a lot of roasted malt bitterness coupled with strong coffee. As the beer warms, I get more finesse from the beer, which means it becomes a bit sweeter and shows more of its chocolate side. The hop profile is pleasantly bitter, but its not a distracter to the malt show that makes this stout. The stout is high enough in gravity to make it feel like you are drinking a bigger beer, but low enough to make it semi quaffable.

Excellent stout. Attractive opaque pour with a burnt, roasty aroma. Great smoky flavor throughout, with a smooth, malty consistency. Some coffee tones, but the smoky/burnt character from beginning to end is what did it for me.

The stout itself is amazing, so roasty that I could drink it for breakfast and be fooled into a placebo effect of a coffee caffeine rush!

Beautiful pour. Deep black with dark tan head that looks almost sandy, but feels so creamy. It’s a roll call of dark malt flavors and aromas: caramel and chocolate being dominate, but with an undercurrent and finish of burnt bitterness. Low to no coffee, though. Incredible stout.

igneous1 (1489) - Davenport, Iowa, USA - SEP 20, 2002
perfectly opaque when held up to the light, aroma was that of a starbucks iced mocha cappucino..quite chocolate and a roasted nose. malty chocolaty coffee flavors with wonderful bitterness lingering forever.

ravidesai (940) - Bombay, INDIA - SEP 10, 2002
tremendous stout. nearly black but with a coppery glow when held up to a light. small but thick head, aromas of chocolate, coffee and deep roasted malt, the taste is also rich with coffee and bitter chocolate prevaling over a toasted grain character. velvety mouthfeel , gives the feel of a cask-conditioned beer.

Terminus (3146) - Las Cruces, New Mexico, USA - SEP 10, 2002
UPDATED: MAR 17, 2004 bottle-age unknown poured with no head whatsoever-burnt aroma-coffee appearance. Palate was robust with the signature bells tingle on the toungue. pretty good ReRate-2003 bottle-I boosted the ratings on this one. I didn't take notes of the one bottle i had, but i remember the mouth feel that of roasted marshmellows with chocolate over them. very nice and unique!

Very large, dark brown head. Great roasted flavour with a nice mix of chocolate and malt.
