GeneralGao (3614) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - FEB 26, 2007
Draft at the brewpub. Advertised as 6.2% ABV. Poured an opaque black color. Head was one finger high and tan in color. It reduced quickly into a thin film and left only a bit of lace. Aroma was roasty malt, coffee, and dark chocolate. Delicately sweet on the tongue and full bodied. Tasted of bitter dark chocolate, charred caramel, wet stone, and a hint of coffee. Not bad.

Ughsmash (7128) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 7, 2007
On tap at StoutFest. Poured dark brown with a very nice initial cap of caramel head. Aroms found dry chocolate and darker fruity notes, mild coffee, and some musty notes creeping in as it warmed a bit. Flavor had a very enjoyable undercurrent of molasses and other dark sugars.. dark chocolate, plums, and raisins all represent. Medium-bodied with a decent flow.. odd molassessey finish. Solid.

On tap at the brewpub, Rock Island. Better than the amber/ESB/whatever I had, this was a nicely roasty dry stout that could have used more heft in the body. But the mouthfeel was pleasantly chalky and the flavors were appropriately bitter, going well with the meat on my plate.

Illini08 (542) - Raleigh, North Carolina, USA - APR 5, 2007
Growler from the brewpub. Dark pour with a tan head. strong aroma of coffee and maybe some chocolate, but mainly coffee. Too much coffee in the flavor for my tastes. A bit one dimensional, but I’m not a huge fan of coffee either...
