Bottle. Pours purple-brown with almost no head. Chocolate milk and burnt malts to the nose. Overall flavor is more chocolate, sweet, with more burnt malt flavors, grape, beechnut and a bitter finish that reminds me of olives. Overall good and I will buy it again.

Very good tasting beer. Dark taste with a milky aftertaste. Not a noticable taste of alcohol either.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
This stout pours with a very dark, medium, light brown head with a good amount of lacing left behind. The aroma is slightly sweet, very roasty and malty with a slight mocha note. The flavor is sweet and chocolatey with an underlying coffee note, a touch of vanilla and a little roastiness. The finish has a bitter sweet character. Full bodied, smooth and creamy.

Pours dark with a moderate head that fades quickly. Aroma is of deeply roasted/burnt malt. Flavor is a sweetness balanced by a dry roastness and a slight nuttyness. Tasty and easy drinking. Finish is a bit watery.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Six pack for the 3rd of July. Shared all but one and heard many drunk people argue wether the bottle cap was a left hand or udders,lol. Thin, black stout with a slick lactic feel and taste. Not much going on until the finish, where the sweet chocolatey taste is better and some dryness comes through. Not very big on tastes or nose, sort of plain-jane, if you will.

(Bottled 5-11-04) Black body with bit of red, topped by a minimal dissipating tan head. Aroma is medium sweet, lactose, roasty, coffee, some hazelnut, light cinnamon. Taste is sweet, strong roasty coffee, light chocolate. Medium body. A pleasant beer, but nothing that I would seek out again.

Good sweet stout. Very good, strong coffee aroma, roasted nuts. Perfect stout appearance, black with a slightly small tan head. Taste was good, but not great. Not as sweet as I expected. Slightly bitter. Good.

4.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
UPDATED: JAN 13, 2005 I was very impressed with this stout from left hand. It poured nicely and had a small head. It had a sweet aroma kind of like hazelnuts. The consistency was that of cream and it was rather light for a stout. It tasted sweet but wasnt weak the 7% was hidden nicely by the flavor. It left a pleasant after taste and was well enjoyed.

UPDATED: OCT 29, 2004 strange beer, it was very milkey with tastes/smells of chocolate,vanilla, malt, and slight hints of coffee. was a dark beer, but tasted a bit faint for being a stout of any sorts. not on my must buy list, but overall not a bad beer.
