Great appearence with a good roasty aroma and a creamy mouthfeel. Almost like a desert beer but I could drink this anytime of the day. If you are ever in NY, stop by Heartland to try this.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: DEC 2, 2005 The aroma is full of roasted nuts, cappacino and dark chocolate.
A sparkling clear ruby hue with a large, creamy, khaki colored head. Mostly lasting with incredible lacing. The person doing dishes at Heartland must need a putty knife to get that lacing off the glasses.
Wonderfully malty and smooth with bursts of milk chocolate and creamy coffee up front. Balanced nicely with an adequate hop presence on the backside. Hints of herbs and cinnamon.
Soft carbonation. Full-bodied with a creamy mouthfeel. Short, dry, lightly bitter and grassy finish. Very good stout.

Fresh burnt grain nose, black color and a tall head from a nitro tap. Crisp espresso bitterness. Very, very roasted tastes. Medium body, could be fuller. Good brew, but a top 50 beer? hmmm...

I don’t understand why the other brews of this brewery are so average like, but this brew really makes the trip worthy. Coffee, pure coffee beans, toasted. Black body, brussels lace. Coffee, malt and chocolate overwhelming flavor. Nice long coffee finish. yumm "Estremly roasted" pivo. He, I love coffee, instead of drinking six pots of coffee every day, I could drink this instead, no shit!

UPDATED: APR 28, 2003 Lots of dark roasted grain in the nose. Deep, deep clear ruby brown. Hazelnut, coffee, cocoa flavor. Creamy, but somehow watery palate. No oat twang. Rerate 4/23/03:Very good, but not truly a Top 20 beer...

Excellent stout, great soft that followed the beer all the way down the glass, lots of roasted flavors, also seemed a bit on the sour side, very good, very drinkable stout

Re-rate: Was originally blown away by its creaminess, but now am aware that the creaminess comes from the nitrogen, not from the beer itself. This stout’s head is like a Boddington’s. The beer is rich, slightly sweet. You cannot buy it in growler form. Very good. A hint of sour roastiness.

I usually get this beer whenever I go to Heartland - it has a great mouth-feel and slides down very easily. And it is always nice and fresh!
