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.

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!

Deep black body with thick tan head that lasted long. Great complex aroma. Great taste of coffee and chocolate. Delicious stout.

Brew4Dug (138) - 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 (1058) - 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.

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.

Not much aroma, just a little dark malt. Fine dark head. Flavor is mainly bitter.

guzzler67 (1494) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - OCT 28, 2003
I love a good stout and this one does not disappoint. Very dark appearance with a good sized, long lasting, well laced head. Aroma held some chicory and a good dose of roasted malt. Medium to full-bodied mouthfeel. Flavor had a slight bit of sweetness. Smooth, pleasant finish.

nice dark color, but has a very light foam. kinda light on the flavor. for some reason i'm not overly impressed with it... doesn't hit the right beer eroginous zones....

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