Great stuff - today I cracked open three Kalamazoos - the Double Cream Stout, Expedition Stout & Cherry Stout - of the three, this was my favorite. The beer pours DARK black with a small, light brown head. The aroma, as with most stouts is of strong coffee and a slight sweetness. The flavoring is amazing - coffee, chocolate, fruits, malt, vanilla, it's all there. Finishes smoothly with a little alcohol on the tongue and a very slight bitter flavoring. Great stuff - better than the Expedition in my opinion - but both are great beers. Not as sweet as the Cherry, not as strong as the Expedition - the perfect middle ground!

Indra (2663) - Overland Park, Kansas, USA - JUL 17, 2003
UPDATED: NOV 29, 2003 Dark, roasted coffee and cream in the aroma, with a hint of lactose, toffee and semi-sweet chocolate. Opaque ebony color, bottle-conditioned, with a settling, tan head. Rich, roasty and darkly sweet malt flavor, plenty of cocoa, some molasses and caramel, and finishing with a light dose of hop bitterness. Exceedingly smooth mouthfeel. A quality stout.

HighGravity (926) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - JUL 10, 2003
I tried to pour this beer slowly, but the end result was a beer with a massive meringue head. The nose is very sweet, chocolaty, and rich. The palate is full and flavorful with rich fudge flavors. This is a chocolate fruit bomb of a beer with a hint of pineapple in the finish. Baby Expedition. The yeast profile reminds me of 3rd coast old ale.

Radek Kliber (6519) - Toronto (Can) Krotoszyn (Pol), POLAND - JUL 8, 2003
Dark brown, creamy decent head. Buttery creamy aroma, sweet rich with roast notes. Softer, mellower coffee. Nice aftertaste.
