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.

Sweet aroma, little biterness in the end. Fine stout.

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?

I must say I was a little disheartened by these phrases imprinted on the bottle: "Serve Extra Cold" and "Drink straight from the bottle." Nonetheless, I poured it into a glass around 50F. This has one of the best heads anywhere, but the body is far too thin to be considered stout. It does have a pleasant roasted character, though. Very comparable to the can version, and not too far from the tap version.

Classic cascade effect as it settles, great creamy thick beer, the basis for all others. Much better draft than in the bottle, but those widget cans arenít too bad...
