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.

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

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.

slightly tan head with fine to medium carbonation, somewhere between semi and totally opaque dark black with nice lace. kinda light on the aroma, good flavor with very little nut, but definetly the thich coffe maple flavor and a nice finish of hops to balance of the sweetness of the initial taste.

This is one beautiful stout. It pours dark with a dark brown head. This definitely smells and tastes like coffee, with a little roasty, smokiness. After a while though, the coffeeness overwhelms me (not a coffee fan). I usually only drink one of these at a time, but it's definitely worthwhile if you're a stout fan.

(bottle) I'm not the biggest fan of stouts. But for some reason this one I quite liked. It doesn't have a strong flavor or amazing character or anything, but it was really a nice tasting beer.
