3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at Kuhnhenn. Pours near black with small light tan head. Aromas of chocolate, dry roasted malts, and some dark fruits. Flavor is sweet with chocolate, light booze, roasted malts, and a little bitterness. I wonder if this the right beer but it is tasty.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: AUG 18, 2004 2003 nitro tap. Wonderful pour with tons of tan and caramel colors swirling around. As it settles, it takes on a dark brown and a huge tan-roasty head, much better than guiness' mostly white head. Aroma has tons of bitter coffee in it and quite bold. Begins with a medium body and moderately roasty. This quickly escalates in to a huge espresso flavor with lots of oily, bitter roast flavors lingering. Very dry, but as it warmed, it became a bit too watery for my liking with the roasted barley being a bit too dominating. Needs some other flavors in the mix.

On cask at the St. Patrick’s day party. Dark brown color with a thin ring of off white bubbles around the edge of the glass. Some roasted malts, coffee, and carmel in the aroma. Coffee, molasses, roasted malts, and maybe some cinammon in the taste. Not too shabby.

On tap at the Blind Tiger at their Kuhnhenn event. Pours a clean black with a thick tan head. Caramel, roast, malt. Thin, roast. Somewhat empty. Finishes up with a lot of bitterness. Seems a bit one dimensional.

2011-11-13. Ruby tinged black body with a small tan head. 3+ Dry roasty flavour grows more roast with consecutive sips, modest roasty bitterness. Dry roasty aroma. Average to thin bodied palate is insufficient for my preferences. Decent stout, but its a bit thin, and one dimensional for my own tastes. On tap at Kuhnhenn, Warren

[4116-20111113] Tap. Sweet nutty roast malt aroma. Red-tinged black body with a quick foamy light tan head. Roasted nuttiness continues in the flavour. Medium-full body. Odd soured nut notes, nice to sample though. (7/3/6/3/13) 3.2-
