OhioDad (2492) - Hilliard, Ohio, USA - AUG 2, 2005
12 oz bottle pours black with a short brown creamy head. Aroma is of sweet chocolate and roasted malts. Flavor is much chocolate, roasted malts, and a touch of coffee bitterness followed by a sweet lingering aftertaste. Palate is smooth and creamy and mouthcoating, but not real thick. Not quite as good as Expedition or Kalamazoo stouts, but another solid stout indeed from Kalamazoo brewing.

shadey (2048) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - JUL 30, 2005
UPDATED: JUN 25, 2007 Black color with thin creamy mocha head. Creamy roasty flavor. Light roast aroma. Almost a horse shit aroma. Weird. Light alcohol flavor. Full body. Tasty but nothing great. 6/4/7/4/17

RERATE: Courtesy of Styles. Pour is a glossy black with wisps of dark tan cream. Aroma is nice creamy rich chocolate. Flavor is delicious chocolate, but isn’t quite the same as Kalamazoo (which I like better). Not noticing the less than pleasant horse manure smell I picked up last time. Body is smooth and a little sticky. A very nice stout, but Bells is the king of stouts, so the bar is pretty high for them.

A chocolate and roast aroma. Nice brown head and deep chocolate appearance. A flavorful roast flavor with a touch of bitterness and a sweet finish.

This stout reminds me of dessert. Chocolate and malted roasts predominate, both in aroma and taste. Smooth and, not unexpectedly, creamy. Pours black with dark tan head (that didn’t last long). Just right amount of sweetness for this style for my taste.

Pours black color with large dark brown head. Smells of chocolate and mild malt. Tastes is chocolate, caramel, toffee, and a hint of chocolate covered cherries. Very creamy (duh) and very smooth. An excellent brew!

OldGrowth (3098) - the Containment Area, North Carolina, USA - JUN 24, 2005
bottle, from trade with Pailhead. Good nose, sweet. Coffee,cocoa, or maybe I should say like a fudgecicle, little maple too. Nice dark reddish black color, little cocoa beige head that faded quickly. Bitter flavors, like the aromas with a little hint of hop bite. Medium body, smooth creamy/oily mothfeel, bitter dry finish. Nice brew, Kalamazoo rules, especially in stouts.
