4/19/03 Tap at brewery. Black, with a tan head, mild malt aroma, with a bit of earthyness. Roasty coffee flavors and traces of chocolate and nuts. Nicely smooth front to back, and all in all, a very pleasent drink.

Very solid, pitch black stout. Sweet without the taste of ham. Served on a nitrogen tap, which could have been better but otherwise good. Slight malty acric taste finishes.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
The name sure is appealing... But it just doesn’t really size up. Aromas of coffee and chocolate are there but they are disappointingly mild. Flavors are on he sweet side. Body is creamy. Finish is a bit too clean.
