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.

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

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.

harlequinn (2744) - Tacoma, Washington, USA - OCT 12, 2003
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 (3061) - 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 (5266) - 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.
