Narnad (1453) - Wonder Lake, Illinois, USA - SEP 29, 2009
Courtesy of JMerritt. Pours a dark black color with a thin, dense, tan head. Aroma has a heavy roasted, burnt note with chocolate, coffee and a large sweet molasses or dark fruit note. Flavor is pretty bland with a roasted malt note, slight sour middle, chocolate with light coffee ending. Kinda thin body with a slightly oily feeling. Overall the flavors are a bit light, the aroma is a bit off and the carbonation is way off (almost none again). Just seems to be something overall off with the beers I have tried here.

JMerritt (1775) - Macomb, Illinois, USA - SEP 10, 2009
Bottled. Pours muddy black with a minuscule light brown head. Rich chocolate malt nose – very chocolate-syrupy – with a hint of roasty coffee. Flavor has a rather large “green” note to it – something akin to leaves – with mild roast, mild sweetness, and a bit of cold, stale coffee. Finish is heavily herbal. Rather low carbonation, but I prefer my stouts this way. Mouthfeel is a little thin, however, and finish is noticeably light. The best of the Hub City 6-pack mixer it came in, for what that’s worth.

light coffee flavor with notes of vanilla, fairly thin body, color is dark brown, aftertaste is lightly roasty and "metallic".
