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.

Stew41 (1805) - Woodend, AUSTRALIA - APR 3, 2006
Well made dry stout style. Dark brown in the glass with a very small dark coffee coloured head. Dry nose, some roasted touched, subdued. Dry palate, some fizz, slightly metallic malts but nothing to worry about. Perhaps needs a touch more intensity but thereís no doubting the structure as a dry stout style.

SwedeDog (364) - Windsor, Connecticut, USA - MAR 25, 2006
Bottle. Drank this as a tribute to the old Irishman, Jim Calhoun. At first, I was doubting itís potential, but I guess it did itís job after all. As a beer, though, itís really nothing special. Very watery. Very thin. Not bad, mind you, just not much of anything. I guess thereís a bit of chocolate and very mild roasted malts in the mouth, but thatís about it. Smooth going down, and not as bitter as I had expected. Not bad.

Numenor (871) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - MAR 24, 2006
Heavy tan head, high carbonation, black body. Nice sweet aroma, very smooth, somewhat like milk chocolate. Bacon taste in the body, some smoked quality as well, hops are present. Bitter ending, probably from roasted malts.

maniac (3800) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - MAR 24, 2006
Dark black color with a medium creamy brown head that lasts for a while. Chocolate, roasted malt and coffee aromas. Very bitter strong coffee flavor.

rsmeds (228) - Turku, FINLAND - MAR 23, 2006
Bottle.
Virtually opaque black, with a foamy brown head (fairly good retension).
Heavily roasted malt aroma of freshly ground coffee, dark chocolate, sweet dark fruit, spices and bitter hops.
Flavor reflects aroma, albeit somewhat dryer, with a slightly bitter cold coffee roasted aftertaste.
Moderate carbonation, medium body. A nice smooth stout.

radagast83 (5657) - Fairfax, Virginia, USA - MAR 17, 2006
11 oz or so bottle. Nothing really special about this stout. Not bad, but not spectacular. A bit creamy, with a little bit of sour taste. Deffinately not worth the price I paid for it.

beervana (781) - Libertyville, Illinois, USA - MAR 15, 2006
(03.11.06) On tap at Firkinís, Libertyville, IL. Blacked hued stout having a long-lived giant creamy off-white head. Faint plastic-like aroma. Medum-to-full bodied stout that starts dry with slight licorice flavor. Finishes dry with light bitterness fade. Creamy and smooth in the mouth. Very mild and practically tasteless but for the slight licorice flavor. Good drinkable dry mild stout that is best enjoyed without food as food flavors overwhelm this beer.

FROTHINGSLOSH (5523) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 12, 2006
UPDATED: JUN 29, 2006 Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a black color with a large brown head. The aroma is vaguely skunky with a sour tang. The mouthfeel is rather thin for a stout. The flavor is roasted malts and a sharp bitterness. Not very good.
