UPDATED: OCT 22, 2005 Almost more head than beer. The appearance is good owing to the nitrogen.. It has a bit of an acidic aroma. However, the flavor is lacking in complexity; it is difficult to go far beyond roasted and slightly creamy. Watery and dumbed down.

Nice nose. Full palate. Bitter, but not overbearing. I still like this one in a íBlack and Taní. This beer is MUCH BETTER from the tap.

What a great thing this is. Nowhere near as good as fron the tap but for me living in the middle of nowhere itís the best I can ask for. I love the chocolate and coffee taste this beer has. Iím sure my rating is pretty high but until I find better itís in my top 5.

Chocolate sweet coffee aroma, creamy head. Hoppy bitter finish. Head and shoulders better than the bottles or cans.

One of my favorite stouts, itís been there when the going was tough, and continues to prove itself again and again. Excellent mouthfeel, solid head, enjoyable palate, and very nice finish. The draught is the only real way to consume this beverage. Slante!

The beer I drank on my 21st birthday, I returned to it recently and my hair started growing back. Maybe itís the vitamins?
