UPDATED: FEB 3, 2007 Terribly concocted and not to friendly. I had a sampler at the brewpub and was dissipointed to the fact that the bartender thought this was good stuff. I would recommend that if you visit the Grumpy Troll that you donít ask the bartenders what they think is the best brews on tap. It lacked the substantial feel of a stout and seemed rather thin. Rated in September of 2006 just to clarify that with the user by the name of grumpy troll.

muzzlehatch (4424) - Burlington, Vermont, USA - DEC 9, 2006
Draught pint at the brewpub, mid-October 2006. Translucent, near-black body with a decent lasting frothy off-white head and nice thick lacing....milky chocolate at first in a nose that rapidly becomes roastier and sharper and hints of licorice which doesnít materialize enough for real excitement....some nice roastiness throughout the body, fairly fruity (berries) and slightly tart, dark chocolate touches....body could be fuller but itís really quite drinkable, definitely the best thing I had on this visit.

The body was very dark brown with a light ruby color when held ot light. The khaki head was fairly thin on top. The aroma had lots of chocolate with coffee and some sweet oatmeal. The taste was light with some mild coffee and a a little bitof roast. There was also some milk chocolate in the smooth and light body. A lame stout that they describe as dry on their menu.

robertsreality (2460) - Minnesota, USA - NOV 9, 2005
Dark Brown Coloring with Whisp of a White Ring. Chocolate and Coffee Roasts on the Nose. Very Light Mouthfeel...Certainly Not Robust with the Chocolate and Coffee Flavor but Still a Good Drinking Stout.

badgerben (4479) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - OCT 22, 2005
Black color with slightly red edges. Aroma of burnt coffee. Very watery body. The coffee is still there with a slight chocolate wrap.

SledgeJr (3577) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - AUG 20, 2005
On tap at the Brewpub. Dark brown in color with a white head. Roasted and coffee-like aroma. Body is too light. Good lacing. Not an outstanding stout and slightly disappointing for this very good brewpub.

StewardofGondor (1934) - Washington Heights - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 14, 2005
Worst looking stout ever - clear, translucent amber brown with a thin grey/white head. Roasted malt and cocoa powder aroma along with some walnuts. Smells like a potent red. Chocolate dryness attempts to satisfy its claim as a stout. Thatís pretty much as far as it gets. Dry and thin-bodied. Might be classified as a stout in a blind taste test, but I have serious reservations.

Beautiful looking beer. This beer does excite my tastebuds (mind you it was the last one I had, they were already pretty excited). A very good stout with no crappy aftertaste.
