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.

A great beer. If it wasn't so expensive I would be drinking it more often. Great flavor.

You know this really was not that bad of a stout. Extremely dry and full bodied. Rich oily texture, with smooth chocolate flavors dominate the taste, but the most flavor coming out of the beer is roasted and lightly nutty, sort of like drinking a Hershey's with almonds.

bluevegie (3042) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - OCT 9, 2003
Black colour with a good light brown frothy head, aroma of mild coffee carries through to the taste with a hint of licorice. Good beer but maybe a little sweet.

Accaris (21) - Athens, Georgia, USA - SEP 25, 2003
A very overlooked stout. One of the most refreshing stouts I've had. Standard coffee/chocolate flavor, but nicely bodied and quite smooth. The semi-sweet maltiness adds to the beer's balance. Mild aftertaste. An easy-drinking stout that's easy to polish off.

Suttree (4908) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - SEP 21, 2003
Deep dark black with a very impressive rocky tan head. Faint coffee, the a full dry flavor throughout. Pretty good.

I like this stout very much. Pours an opaque black. Little tan head that settles quickly. Aroma is very present. Malty/roasty with a nicely balanced hopp finish. A tad watery, but very good.

FlemishChar (224) - Virginia, USA - AUG 30, 2003
Comparable to bottle Guiness, this has a nice bitter roasted malt/hop bite, but is very light bodied, and finishes off rather quickly and weakly. It's still a nice session beer.

Trappist (284) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - AUG 28, 2003
This was a nicely made stout. It had a deep rich color and flavor, and a nice bite to go with it. Somewhat of a coffee flavor like shag said. Not as good as Guinness, but still good.

Shag (2561) - Chattanooga, Tennessee, USA - AUG 22, 2003
UPDATED: OCT 6, 2006 Appearance is black. Flavor is slightly bitter with a coffee taste. A little too carbonated and light on flavor. Decent stout. RERATE : My first rating was stupid stuff. A black appearance with a beige head. The aroma is dark chocolate, coffee beans, and smoke. The flavor is very dry and bitter with some coffee, smoke, and licorice. I dont really dig dry stouts but this blows Guinness out of the water.

A typical dry stout. Slitght nutty flavor with a strong roasted barley finish. had a beautiful head that left a nice lacing on the glass.
