Pours to a dark brown/black body with a thin tan head that looks like a fractal. Excellent lacing. The aroma is menthol with a dark fruit and chocolate. The flavor is earthy and chocolate.

Dark brown/black pour, with a tan head. Aromas are coffee, chocolate, and roasted malts. Flavor is roasted malt, smoke, chocolate, hops, and a little bit of caramel. Body is on the heavy side, and this works well here. A couple of percent more alcohol, and this would be in the top 50. A really nice surprise from my secret Santa.

This beer is phenomenal! Mild roasty aroma andfairly flat pour. Those are the only negatives. Spectaculay opaque in color. Medium bodied mouthfeel, nicely creamy. Smoke, bitter chocolate, roasted malt with tons of hops dance around your tongue. Lingering bitterness. Delicious. Thanks to bkelley.

StewardofGondor (1934) - Washington Heights - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 23, 2005
Pours a medium viscosity. Deep mahogany in color with a bubbly tan head around the outskirts. Aroma is nice: flame-licked chestnuts, dark chocolate and spent burr grinds. Flavor plays off of that and is very rich and full. Really nice stuff going on here. Smoked malts are tremendous in this. Pecans, hazelnuts, frangelico, espresso, oats, caramel and rapture. Fairly full-bodied and an absolute joy on the palate. Chocolate, roasted and smoked malts are met with just IBU levels. Finishes smoky with a toasted nuts aftertaste. Damn, can Buckeye brew good beer or what?! One of the finest standard stouts ever crafted.

Tasted at MRAF in Columbus. Poured a dark brown with small off-white head. Aroma was grassy with roasted tone. Flavor was more complex with coffee and roasted malt but kept the grassy earthy finish. Interesting stout.

MRAF ’05. Stated it was a Imperial Stout, so I assume it was a special brew labeled as the Old Mammoth. I rate on however. Pours deep brown with a big time bubbley tan head. Aroma is of earthy hops and cardboard. Taste is rich coffee and malty, with big earthy hop characteristics mixed in. Great hop aftertaste. A great beer on the firkin.

NVBeer232 (467) - Reno, Nevada, USA - OCT 26, 2004
Very dark brown body. Thin tan head with moderate lacing. Aromas are very big, but not overpowering. Quite a bit of roast malt, chocolate, and snappy hops. Flavors start off roasty, fading to soft chocolate middle and a crisp smokey, hoppy finish. Hops are citrusy all the way through. Big beer that is never overwhelming. I wish I could have tasted the cask conditioned version of this at Hoptoberfest ’04.

Tap. Deep opaque color. Nice off-white head. Rich coffee and roasted malt aromas. Also slightly hoppy smelling for a stout. Rich malty flavor, plenty of coffe and roasted malt in flavor. Hops are noticable in the finish and as the beer warms this becomes more apparent. Nice stout.

Sweet dark malt. Coffee, rich roasted malt. Milk, maple, dark cherries. Wow.

Pailhead (4931) - Brownstown, Michigan, USA - OCT 23, 2004
On tap: Aroma is malty with coffee, chocolate and light hops. Dark brown, virtually black with a small tan head. Flavor begins with a lot of coffee and a real interesting smoked flavor in the background. As I drink the smoke almost disappears and is overtaken by some strong grapefruit hops. Much hoppier than most stouts. Slight coffee and moderately hoppy aftertaste.
