UPDATED: JAN 28, 2008 Reviewed again based on the bottle. Pours nice and dark brown, small head, aroma is sweet and appealing. Flavor is nice and sweet, a bit bitter but nice, very creamy.

MaiBockAddict (1497) - Good Beer Bar Deprived, New Jersey, USA - FEB 20, 2005
Tap at the Man of Kent Tavern. Deep dark brown, tan head. aroma of roast, butterscotch, ripe mellon, and a touch of apple. Flavor is roasty and malty with little bitterness. Slight subtle sour note, which if it was intentional, fits the flavor nicely. A little apple mixed in. Smooth.

Lubiere (9999) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 14, 2004
April 2004. Clear dark black with a nice aroma of torrefied coffee and vanilla. Little malts and hops, and rather watery. Low carb malt???

IMtheOptimator (1161) - Bethel, Connecticut, USA - OCT 2, 2004
Poured black (with reddish hues when held to light) with an offwhite thin head. There is a defenite roasted taste with some sweet character, and less bitterness than the Imperial Stout. It is drinkable, but the flavor is much less pronounced than I would like.

MartinT (7811) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - APR 29, 2004
UPDATED: DEC 18, 2007 My Bottom Line:
Toasted bread and delicate yeasty fruitiness carve a landscape between the Brown Ale world and that of Stouts. Not that it is badly brewed, but this is just not what I want from a Stout of any kind.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A slim veil of foam tops the brownish black.
-Earthiness accompanies the toasted malt character; roastiness is strangely frail.
-The body is thin and the carbonation fizzy; again, not much of a Stout in the mouthfeel department.
-The finish is a fast fade out of the flavor profile.

On tap at the brewpub.

Coffee in the aroma after something funky subsides. Dark brown, clear body with no head. Some roastiness apparent. Very dry and lacking flavour. Thin body and watery mouthfeel. On tap at the brewpub.

CapFlu (4518) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 27, 2004
(Draught) At the brewery. Deep cola coloured body and no head. Faint coffee nose - nothing else? Tangy, dry and roasted malt. Again, as with the other Troy beers - too thin... oh, and flavourless as well.

MaBeer1972 (1308) - Taunton, Massachusetts, USA - NOV 22, 2003
Black and very flat. Low carbonation. Aroma is faint of roasted malts, but the flavor is quite watered-down. There is nothing to this brew. The finish was roasty, but I wish there were more in the middle.

Vac (2445) - San Diego, California, USA - MAR 18, 2003
Very dark brown body topped by a medium thick head with good lace left on the glass. Slightly roasty malt aroma with a subtle sweetness. Slighlty sweet and roasty malt flavor with a chocolate/coffee background and finish. Full bodied and smooth.

Troy Pub’s best brew -- but not as good as Young’s or Magic Hat Heart of Darkness.
