maxwelldeux (3452) - Everett, Washington, USA - MAR 31, 2013
Bottle. Pours a near-black color with a moderate tan head. Nose is extremely roasty with some coffee elements in there. Taste is also very roasty and just a tad bitter with some subtle cocoa on the back end. A little dry, but very tasty. Good stout.

Ernest (6143) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - MAR 25, 2013
Bottle. Head is initially average sized, frothy, brown, mostly lasting. Body is dark brown to black. Aroma is moderately malty (chocolate milk, cocoa powder, roasted grain, husks), lightly hoppy (herbs), with a note of vanilla. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly to moderately bitter, slightly husky. Medium body, watery/syrupy texture, lively carbonation. Looks nice. The aroma is dominated by clunky chocolate, like Nestle Quik (was lactose added?), not very enticing at all. Not very good in the mouth either, where it’s syrupy sweet without much to balance. Clumsy and simple.

Pours a really dark but not so thick with a brownish small head. It’s really smooth and lively.

Doofgoblin (281) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - MAR 22, 2013
Really liking this one! The aroma is wham in your face; lots of toasted malt character with a coffee element as well. Pours a dark black with a tan pillowy head that fades to lacing that loves clinging to the pint glass. Taste is somewhat sweet with notes of chocolate, coffee, and especially toasted malt. Finishes exceptionally smooth and flavorful but with enough bitter dryness to prepare you for the next sip.

UPDATED: JAN 1, 2014 Bottle. Dark brown pour, pours fairly thick. Beige head. Roasted coffee and sweet chocolate in this. Nice full palate. Solid beer!

Lukaduke (1998) - Portland, Maine, USA - FEB 27, 2013
Pours a deep burnt umber with a big sticky eggshell foam... the nose is really inviting with nice chocolate brownie, mexican spice and lots of roasty goodness. The palate is smooth and creamy with enough bubbles to bring out the flavors... rich chocolate, soft spice, green coffee beans... nice balance witha touch of bitterness cutting through the finish. Tasty.

MichaelAwesome (3558) - Wanne-Eickel, GERMANY - FEB 19, 2013
Bottle shared with McTapps. Dark with a bit of coffee and bitterness in taste and aroma. Still a bit watery but definitely a quality beer made with passion.

Creedence (282) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - FEB 17, 2013
Cask at the Franciscan Well Winter Ale Festival. Nose of chocolate, berries, honey. Pours jet black, very thin head, that faded a little quickly. very sweet stout, lots of berries and milk choc. medium body, more a porter than a dry, I thought. Impressive, but not brilliant.
