2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Very very coffeeish stout. Very thick, dark, malty and creamy. A bit too strong for my liking. Verymuch like a sweet dark coffee beer if that makes any sense.

There was really nothing special about this stout. sweet, dry and bitter. can't say i tasted chicory in it either, never had chicory before.

Deep brown colour. Wonderful sweet aroma with chocolate and coffee (chicory?) notes. Nice sweet flavour with a well balanced dry and bitter finish.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
I have never seen a head like the one on this beer. It took me ten minutes to pour it. But the head is a light tan and it's thick, fluffy, and sticky. Nose is of chicory and coffee. It was slightly sweet with hints of coffee, chicory, and other herbal notes. Not as flavorful as I expected, but, none the less, this was a very good beer.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Light tan head with a coffee/ nutty nose. Roasty with more nuts and coffee and a little chocolate cherry sweetness. Fair bitterness but all and all was a bit thin.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
The Brewer says bone white head, to me it seems darker at a beige or light tan; lace hangs on the sides of the glass though; beer itself is deep brown with some mohogany highlights. Aroma has coffee/roasty initial aroma, then moves to chocolate and toffeeish; oatmeal also comes through at the end of the sniff with a little bit of sweetness. Roast grain initial flavor with some burnt dark grain notes, but it doesn't make it overly burnt or bitter; a little sourness from dark grains adds to balance sweetness; finishes a little on the dry side for a sweet stout, and it lacks a little creaminess for sweet stout, and a residual sweetness, but a very pleasant beer to drink. Carbonation is perfect to go along with light medium body. Very drinkable in quantity

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
dark brown, almost black with a brown head. the label says bone white but the last time that i looked at bone it was not brown oh well. light malt aroma with some roasty notes and a hint of coffee. the flavor is very well balanced between the roastiness, the coffee and the malt flavors. it seems almost smoky, a little reminiscent of scottish ales. the body is wonderfully smooth and leaves the mouth cleanly. every time i finish my gulp or sip i immediately want more. for once i am glad that i bought a six pack.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Very dark brown color and LOTS of light tan head start this one. A nice aroma, slightly malty, with somewhat sweet coffee notes. Flavor is nice, obviously with coffee, but seems to lack in strength of flavor or any boldness. Good...but a little weak.

UPDATED: FEB 9, 2003 Pours a dark black. Strong aroma and taste of chocolate and coffee. Has a strong odor of chocolate and fruitiness a la raisins. Slight hop bitterness within the finish. Good beer.
