UPDATED: SEP 15, 2007 My first legal beer and still my favorite that can be readily found. I originally rated this beer much higher, but I am far past due to re-rate this one. Itís a good, solid beer, but the flavor is not as bold as most stouts. Little coffee and malt tastes. A good standard.

UPDATED: FEB 25, 2004 Opaque black with a perfect-sized tan head. The aroma and flavor were of charcoal, burnt bread, nutty tones, and slightly sweet tones. Sickly flat feeling...wet finish.

UPDATED: MAR 17, 2006 9/16/02: Had it on tap at Black Angus. Black as coal with a substantial head. I found the body to be thin and watery, but it did have a nice, light, bitter stout flavor. Drinkable, but nothing special. 3/17/06 Bottle: Deep burgandy color with a medium light tan head. Light aroma of burnt coffee. Flavor is very light, weak black coffee that finishes rather dry and lightly bitter. Body is thin and watery with a velvety texture and soft carbonation.
