Bottle. Dark stout pour with almost no head. Nose has some roasted/smoky notes. Usual roasted/toasted/burnt barley taste with some residual sweetness. An average stout.

Deep dark color with mocha head. Nice roasted note nose. Heavey weight with a drying bitter roasted finish. SOme notes of oatmeal, and burnt toast. Eh, alright but not the greatest.

Dark Brown Coloring with Dark Brown Head That Quickly Disapates. Aroma of Coffee Roasts and Wet Cardboard...Which Carried Into the Flavor...The Wet Cardboard Upon Further Tasting Is The Oatmeal...But That Should Tell You How Bad It Was. MUCH Better Stouts out There To Try... Donít Search The Great Divide For This One... Lake Superior Makes a MUCH Better One.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Not sure when it was bottled. The label has the 6 puched out on the 1 through 12 scale, then the 3 is punched out after "week" which has a 1 to 5 scale. I pciked this up in Austin. Slightly oxidized nose with roasted malt. Taste is kind of smokey with some roastiness. Appearence is opaque black with a little brown. Leaves a nice head on top that retains nicely. Body is alittle thin. Aftertaste has a nice roasty bitterness. Pretty decent, but nothing to get excited about.

Had this one on tap at the brewery on my 30th birthday (yeesh!). A nice balance of sweetness and smoke. Highly recommended after a tour of Coors Field (Go Rockies! Letís see some more purple in the clock next season!)

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle - Pours a dark brown/black with almost no head. Aroma is sweet and of roasted malts and coffee. Flavor is of chocolate, roasted malt and with some smokiness. Thick in body. Finish is not that long and slightly sweet; not bitter at all. An OK, but not great stout.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Zero head. Smooth, roasty, and smokey. Lots of licorice on the palate. Odd finish.

Dark, dark color, even up to the light, dark. Decent tan head. Very sweet smelling, chocolatey, coffee. Tasted like a sweet coffee, with a touch of chocolate. Very creamy and easy to drink.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Color, dark as the night, black as they come. Head is full, lush, cocoa-colored, long-lasting.
Aroma: sweet, soft, creamy.
Taste: full, rich, tasty, toasty, with a prodigious mouthfeel, satisfying texture, rich and delicious. Long, rewarding finish.
A most marvelous stout, one Iíd happily quaff again and again.
