3fourths (8236) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - AUG 15, 2004
RBSG 2004. Black appearance. Black licorice nose, smoked malts, dark brown head on this one. Sharp nose... smoky chocolate malts in the nose, similar malts int he flavor and a small alcohol bite in the finish. Very good stuff.

MartinT (8135) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 18, 2011
My Bottom Line:
Roasted coffee beans and dark chocolate seem to be drowning in a picklish flavor which must be the result of a slowly developing infection.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A creamy veil of foam tops the brownish black.
-Expansive carbonation might also be a result of this rising infection.
-The body was strangely thin.
-This is the first time I get a bad Buckeye bottle. Their beers are so wonderful that this experience won’t stop me from getting more of their brews, if I can get some, that is...

Bottle.

DocLock (8054) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 27, 2004
Thanks to BBB63 for this. Pours obsidian, with a massive dark brown, creamy head. Aroma of dark malt, fruit, chocoff, prunes. Tastes malty, with a big chocoff flavor, as well as some cognac, cherries, milk stouty sourness, and wood-barrel spirits, including bourbon and cognac. Medium to slightly firm palate, but not quite as bold as an Impy stout. I call this one the little brother of Stone RIS 2002. Very nice. Buckeye makes some great beers.

BMan1113VR (7873) - Los Angeles, California, USA - MAY 14, 2009
Bottle thanks to bu11zeye, labeled "Buckeye Mammoth Stout-Foreign Stout". Pours with a tan head and a black body. Aroma of cinnamon, chocolate, coffee, bread and raisins. Taste is coffee, light lactic, and bread. Light carbonation.

CaptainCougar (7132) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - MAY 15, 2003
Pours a thick black with a small ring of light brown foam. Mellow roasted and smokey aroma. Dry, crisp, almost smokey flavor with carbonation dissolved deep in the thick body. Pretty good dry stout with lots of character.

j12601 (6863) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - JAN 1, 2013
Bottle courtesy of Zach at Andy’s New Year’s Par-tay! Pours a deep black with a fairly large dense mocha head. Roast and plum and sweet cocoa. Medium bodied, cocoa and chocolate. A bit of oxidization, cocoa and plum. Long roast and bitterness into the finish. Dusty bitter chocolate on the finish.

phaleslu (6836) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JAN 31, 2011
22 oz. bottle from Root Cellar in Cincinnati. I brought it to the Big Black Beer Bash 2011. Pours a deep, dark brown color with minimal visible carbonation and a tiny tan head. Aroma of dark chocolate, roasted malts, some coffee, and earth- basic but really nice. Same goes for the flavor, featuring dark chocolate, roasted caramel malts, coffee, earth and some toast. Medium-bodied, with mild carbonation and a roasty mouthfeel. Nothing in particular stands out about this one, but that’s fine because it’s just a well-done foreign stout.

Cletus (6354) - Connecticut, USA - AUG 12, 2008
Bomber that I think was left over my house by imtheoptimator. Pours brown with a tan head. Smells of chocolate, oats, come coffee, roasty. Tastes roasty and chocolatey with a sweet malty finish. Enjoyable.

Ernest (6350) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - OCT 17, 2004
UPDATED: MAR 14, 2009 Bottle. Head is initially large, frothy, brown, mostly lasting. Body is black (non-opaque, flashlight tested). Aroma is moderately malty (roasted grain, chocolate, burnt coffee), lightly hoppy (grapefruit). Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly to moderately bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly acidic, moderately to heavily bitter, husky. Medium to full body, watery/velvety texture, lively carbonation, lightly alcoholic. Rather roughly bitter, not much fun to drink. Ok aroma, nice appearance and mouthfeel. Forgettable.

5000 (6299) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - AUG 30, 2005
Bottle: Nearly black, very minor brown tint on the edges, moderate dark beige frothy head, very nice lacing.   Heavy roasted malt nose, burnt actually, with a slight coffee tinge.   Semi-sweet on the tongue, quite roasty, moderate hop & malt mixture that is very well balanced.   Nothing dominates, which is nice.   Quite smooth, body is fairly big, moderate to full mouthfeel.   Clean roasted malt finish.   Seems fairly standard, but it is rather solid.   Thanks Dan!
