COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This stout has a robust flavour with a ful bodied and smooth mouth feel. The roast flavours lead to a dry espresso like finish. A generous addition of fuggles hops lead to a tart bitterness which mingles with the roast espresso flavours on the tongue.

Dark brown. Thick, frothy brown head. Aroma of roasted coffee & dark chocolate w/ light phenols. Almost full-bodied. Roasted coffee flavour w/ notes of dark chocolate, nuts & some milky sweetness. Dry, mineral finish.

slang (654) - Columbia, South Carolina, USA - JAN 16, 2004
Amazing looking off-white head over deep brown (caramel soda)stout. Aromas of cocoa and roasted malt. Smooth. Less oily than Guiness. Very interesting hop bite makes this beer stand out (without being over powering). Great with relaxing and chocolate snacks.

CapFlu (4818) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 16, 2004
(5oo ml bottle) Pours a brown, faomy head and a opaque body. Nose of coffee, tinny, cocoa and smoked malt. Very smokey, bitter beginning with a lasting bitterness. Good!

DougShoemaker (3147) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 14, 2004
Coffee, chocolate and smoke aromas. Deep brown, with the slightest red around the edges, plenty of lace. Smokey roast coffee flavour at the front, with an appreciated bitterness in the aftertaste. Medium bodied, well balanced, dry finish leaves me wanting more. A terrific example!

YourDarkLord (1800) - Urbana, Illinois, USA - JAN 5, 2004
Deep black body with thick tan head that lasted long. Great complex aroma. Great taste of coffee and chocolate. Delicious stout.

Brew4Dug (139) - Houston, Texas, USA - JAN 2, 2004
An average example of the dry style. Carries a subtle roasted overtone on the palate as it is consumed. Not as outstanding as it's acclaim on the six-pack carrier describes.

Hangover (1092) - Atlanta, Alabama, USA - NOV 9, 2003
Pours dark black. Subtle earthy aroma. Nice roasted flavor.. hints of chocolate with a smokey, somewhat bitter finish. I like it. One of my favorite 'easily obtainable' stouts.

Volgon (2763) - Manchester, New Hampshire, USA - NOV 6, 2003
UPDATED: JAN 7, 2004 Brown/black color, rich bitter aroma with bits of burnt chocolate. Slick light palate. Dry chocolate taste, ends dry and sudden.
