This bottled brew poured a very large sized light brown colored foamy fine to medium sized long lasting head that left behind a opaque dark brown colored body with no visible carbonation and an excellent lacing. It had a mild dark malt aroma. The mouth feel was thick tingly and malty with a lingering tingly aftertaste with a nice malt bite to it. The flavor was malty with brown malt notes and some roasted toffee mild coffee notes thrown in.

At ZBF 2005 Caramel-brown, creamy head, fully lasting. Tawny body, excellent lace. Light malts in the aroma (typical stout). Lightly sweet, heavily bitter initial flavour. Moderately bitter finish. Medium bodied, average carbonation.

Vac (2445) - San Diego, California, USA - MAR 20, 2005
Pours with a black body topped by a medium thick, brown head with some lacing. The aroma is bitter yet malty with notes of alcohol adn a touch of sweetness. Rather mellow flavor...it’s a little bitter and malty with a slight roastiness. Full bodied and smooth.

An enormous initial head, many moments later..aroma of coffee grinds. But this worked -the malts

Inveigler (371) - Ferndale, Michigan, USA - MAR 18, 2005
Rocky balooning head that sticks around for the whole beer. Dark, but not a black hole by any means. Musty sour aroma with some hints of dark malts: chocolate, roasted, maybe Special B. Some alcohol presence ... not quite a stout, but not quite a belgian dark ale -- the roastiness makes it a definable stout. An interesting juxtaposition of two favorite beer countries.

JCapriotti (1379) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 18, 2005
Dark brown body, large fizzy tan head. Interesting roasted "sweet and sour" (?) aroma containing creamy toffee / butterscotch, berries, chocolatey tobacco. Flavor... rich roasted chocolate malt, espresso, vanilla, anise, tobacco. I don’t know what that flavor is... roasted tobacco anise? It reminds me of a large component in the Westvleteren 12 in a way; maybe its from the yeast? Too carbonated for me... its a pet peeve. Either way... great flavor and aroma... good complexity and balance.

rudolf (2340) - Buffalo, New York, USA - MAR 18, 2005
The color is strange - black but somehow orange. Not ruby, orange. Quite bready and sweet nose - cola, nuts, bananna, alcohol vapors. Tastes somewhat like cola at first, giving way to a nice bready/nut thing. Refreshingly dry but a bit much on the alcohol. Cherries and wood in the finish.

hotstuff (4058) - Indiana, USA - MAR 15, 2005
Bottle. Huge tan head that was mostly lasting, small-medium sized bubbles, fair lacing, no visible carbonation, opaque, and a black hue. Aroma was malty, chocolate, roasty, and coffee. Flavor was acidic, lightly bitter, malty, coffee, and chocolate. Very tingly palate. Medium body.

Black. Fruity aroma. Very soft mouthfeeling. Quite malty with coffee notes and a slightly burnt bitter finish.
