3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pitch black with a light brown, huge and creamy head. The aroma has notes of roasted malt and chocolate. The mouthfeel is quite full. The flavour is surprisingly mild, but it has a nice body with notes of chocolate, cocoa, licorice and coffee. The balance and bitterness is nice, and it is a nice stout for beginners too. Thank you Tom/After4ever for this nice beer, that I had on my wishlist! 1911

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Black, creamy tan head. Nose held soft notes of dark roast coffee and black chocolate, and lighter wafts of citrus. Flavor was a bit more intense then the nose with notes of lightly smoked coffee, roasty chocolate, a touch of vanilla, and some faint ashy earthy bitterness. Light to medium bodied, medium carbonation, dry bittersweet finish. Well made stout. Thanks for sharing Schutzenliesel....

12oz bottle from Jake65 - thanks! Nice inky black stout with a sweet roasty aroma. Very drinkable, not excessive mouthfeel. The dominant presence is chocolate smoothness, but as it warms thereís a touch of bitter roastage. Very fine stout.

This has a light coffee aroma. Simple, straightforward malt flavor, only a little roasted taste and very light chocolate-coffee.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pitch black color with a medium head. A pretty strong roasted malt aroma with a little nuttiness. Big, thick, roasted malt flavor. Nothing crazy, nothing subtle. Just a solidly bitter malt taste with a little chocolate on the end. Nice.

Pours a jet black with a tiny tan head. Nice smokey nutty aroma with hints of bittersweet chocolate. Medium carbonation with a nice toasty smokiness. Light chocolate flavor accented by a nice citrus hop touch that finishes unbelievably.

UPDATED: FEB 13, 2007 Bottle. Thick and dark with a small brown head with lots of lacing. Has no sweetness, some nuts and lots of roast and chocolate. Has hints of smoke in it as well. Big thick mouthfeel that goes down really smooth. Itís hard to find anything I donít like about this beer. Loads of flavor. A quality stout if Iíve ever had one. Very satisfying.
