Stine (1759) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - MAR 4, 2007
Black pour smells of prunes and low-chocolate mocha. Flavors of plums, prunes… rich, full roasted African coffee, some chocolate. A hint of something weird like beet. Well-integrated elements of taste with a spot-on palate…dense, but not viscous, smooth, but not slippery.

detroiter (958) - Euphoria, Minnesota, USA - JAN 22, 2007
Pours a deep dark brown. Screw it, call it black. A good inch of creamy tan head that lasted for a good long time. Excellent thick lacing. Mild roastiness in the aroma. More roastiness in the taste. Big malty tasty beer, very rich, with lots of roasted grain, strong black coffee, and mild dark chocolate. Pretty smooth with a rather full body. Excellent roast in the finish.

ABR 2006. I don’t think Fitger’s makes a bad beer and this might be Minnesota’s premier brewer. The beer is black, and the aroma has roasted malt and light smoke. Some coffee in the flavor, more roasted grains and a moderately palate. It is very smooth and easy to drink.

Nice creamy smooth stout served on nitro with a frothy, quickly fading tan head. Smoky roasted malt aroma and a similar flavor, but the oats counteract the dry coffee like finish. Thinner bodied than I would like from a flavorful stout. But still very tasty.

Was quite excited about trying this one. It had a nice dark pour with a thick, creamy head. I noticed just a faint oat smell. It had a roasted flavor with hints of caramel and chocolate. There was a good balance of flavor but it seemed a little on the thin side. Yay for Duluth!

auerbrau (3203) - Ithaca, New York, USA - FEB 4, 2005
Fresh sea salt aroma. Almost pitch black. Very smoky, almost of burnt cedar and rusic leaves. Bites the tounge pleasently. Very rich and creamy. Super full of nuts. Hazlenut and fresh cream.

muzzlehatch (4747) - Beloit, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 30, 2004
Sample at the brewpub. Lasting creamy bubbly tan covering atop a ruby-accented blackness -- cocoanut and sweet chocolate eddy in the huge roasty nose -- rich and decadent wine-soaked chocolate cake is touched by vanilla, a hint of bourbon warmth leaves a memorable impression.

badgerben (4864) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - AUG 17, 2004
Black body with a medium, tan head. Good malty aroma followed up by an oatmeal presence in the taste. A solid roastiness to it as well. A bit on the watery side, but still tasty. Good grief... #500. 500 down, 500 to go!
