Jeppe (2631) - Brooklyn, Alabama, USA - SEP 15, 2004
Tar black body with a nice light brown head. Roasted malt, coffee and sweet chocolate in the aroma with a slight tone of alcohol. Flavorfull and smooth. Bitter hoppy with a sour citrusy finish. Dark roasted malt and coffee notes. Smooth and tasty.

3fourths (8344) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - SEP 11, 2004
Dark brown with a very thin light caramel colored head. The nose is a distinct chocolate malts and milk chocolate aroma, but also has some fuesal and vegetable-like off aromas. Medium body, semi-sweet chocolate chip flavors throughout, but a little sickly sweet in the finish with some grainy vegetable flavors... this stout demands a thicker body and more smoke. The lingering coating of the mouth resembles unsweetened bakers chocolate.

MullMan (1099) - New York, USA - SEP 9, 2004
black body and ruby at edges. dark tan head, both creamy and foamy. lasts pretty well. USDA organic! roasted malt aroma, later cocoa and prune upon warming. smooth and creamy mouthfeel, fizzy up front but fades. dry/bitter roasted malt/coffee flavor start, then gets watery and coffee/bitter finish.

harlequinn (2744) - Tacoma, Washington, USA - SEP 5, 2004
This is not a terrible example of a milk stout, though not a big fan of this style this was reasonably tasty. Pours murky and dark, with very little head. The aroma is slightly fruity, like figs and prunes with a light burnt malty flavor some milk chocolate and coffee. Very syrupy, with a little vegetal taste at times. Not bad.

Reid (1993) - Salem, Oregon, USA - AUG 17, 2004
OK bought ina 22 oz bomber ,different label from what is shown here..and its says "organic". LOvelly black beer with a semi-large brown head..that persists. Aroma is nice mostly of burnt malts with dark chocoalte in the back.Some "milkiness". Very full flavour stout, dark esspresso,burnt embers,unsweet chocolate..also some sweetness right at the start..nice stuff. Very nice and smooth on the palate. Very very drinkable for one so complex..really enjoying this.

Suttree (5317) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - AUG 14, 2004
Black, sturdy brown head. Mildly chocolate aroma. Nice, full mouthfeel. Rich, full chocolate flava with a persistant woodsy, spicy hop bite. Surprisingly drinkable for how full bodied it is.

mjg74 (2610) - Salem, Oregon, USA - AUG 8, 2004
Pours a very dark color. Has a really nice roasted coffee, sweet smell to it. Flavor is very similar to the smell, but is a little more on the roasted side. Very drinkable stout.

Enniskillen (2044) - Salinas, California, USA - JUL 3, 2004
Cocoa, Espresso, Vanilla. Thin, but that really isn’t a real bad thing in this brew. Coffee, and Bittersweet Chocolate is very well presented. Head is thin, tan, and dissapated quickly. Pours black.
