Brown with a tan head. Smells like a latte. Full, rich palate. Assertive coffee flavors throughout, along with some oakiness, maybe. pleasent bitterness and a clean finish.

UPDATED: OCT 29, 2003 Definite coffee aroma and flavor. Not bad, but still not my favorite stout.

Very little head, if any. Not much lacing with this brew. Coffee aroma. It had a brown body. There was bitterness noted with this brew. All in all, not a bad brew.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: JUN 4, 2003 This brew poured all but no head. What head it had was made up of medium sized brown bubbles. It had a strong malt aroma and an opaque black brown body. It was smooth initially with a very thick mouth feel and a slight bitterness in its coffee malt finish. This is a very delectable brew. One I would very much like to have again.

Very interesting flavor. I like how the chicory flavor is infused with the coffee, choclolate, and hops. Although it was not as strong flavored as I prefer, I really like how smoothy it went down. It disappeared from my glass rather quickly. I give it a thumbs up. As for appearance, it is a dark brown/black with a coppery-tan head. Looks as delicious as it tastes.

Dark brown in colour. Aroma of coffee, chocolate, malts. Flavour of roasted malts, slight coffee with a little bit of smoke. Finishes a little bit thin but had a bit of a coffee kick to it. Thanks ciderguy.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
This beer pours a very dark brown color with a medium off-white creamy head and moderate lacing on the glass. The aroma is of coffee and maybe a hint of chocolate and possibly some roasted malt. The taste was not to my liking because I am not a fan of coffee. But this is a good beer and a very solid stout. If you like coffee and you like stouts, this beer will probably please you - but because of my dislike for coffee, I have to give it just a moderate grade.

UPDATED: JUN 22, 2003 Dark black body with a medium tan head. Aroma of roasted coffee beans. I thought the coffee flavors were not overpowering and very well balanced. Also a slight sweetness in the finish. Not bad

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Dark brown stout. Smokey with slight chicory nose. Mild roasted coffee flavor, with a little touch of sourness. Dry bitter ending. Not as rich as I would expect, everything about the aroma and the taste is faint.

UPDATED: MAY 22, 2003 The nose was really good but the taste was a bit watery and the body was lean, Somewhat little aftertaste. But a nice drink though.
