3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours dark brown with a foamy, rather ugly brown head. Aroma of chocolate, molasses, some licorice. Flavor sweet and fairly chocolately with slight smokiness and pronounced lactose notes reminiscent of whipped cream. Palate is fairly thick with soft carbonation.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours dark brown. Almost no light shines through. Foamy sparkling tan head that disappates to a nice skim of bubbles. Smell is of sweet milk chocolate with roasted malt notes. Taste isn’t quite as sweet as the aroma would lead you to believe.Mostly a fairly non deScript roasted malts flavor with a hint of the milk chocolate that you can smell. Very good and enjoyable.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Roasty milk chocolate on aroma. Roasty, slightly sweet flavour in a... bit sickly way, with a bit of hops to finish it with. Odd but good.

roasty, light chocolate tones, dark brown almost black, light tan foam, medium sweetness, not bitter at all, full body, creamy, soft carbonation, very good overall stout. It’s better out of the tap than the bottle but very hard to find on tap.

UPDATED: FEB 15, 2008 I don’t like dark beers, but this has a GREAT taste. Very dark color, very creamy taste, but not heavy. Kind of a coffee taste to it

12 oz bottle...deep mud color almost black w/ a tan head. Nose reminded me of mildly roasted coffee beans, and some slight chocolate sweetness. Taste was similar only I’d say more of a dark chocolate bittness on the palate. Very creamy tasting w/o feeling thick or heavy. This is a very good stout!

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours extremely dark, but not quite opaque. Nose is of smoky roasted beans. Kind of dusty on there as well. I remember trying this back when I lived in New Mexico and getting the same characteristics. Flavor is extremely thick with malts. Minimal, but noticeable smoke/roasted flavors. Slight milky and noticeable sweetness. Okay, more than a slight sweet side to it. Feel is just right I think. Thick on liquid and a good carbonation. This is just how I remembered it being. Thick with a unique character and easily drinkable. Worth going for.

Really nice stout. A rich roastiness that almost explodes. Coffee and dark chocolate and sweet malt flavors with a tinge of sourness in the finish. Nicely balanced and quite drinkable. Think I’ll open another.
