UPDATED: MAR 9, 2005 Dark brown with a nice, lasting tan head. Aromas are a little slight, mocha and some fruitiness. Good mocha flavors, some dark dried fruit (dates, raisins, prunes). Alcohol flavor gets in the way.

RAYBOY01 (2012) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JAN 16, 2005
Rich, complex flavors: chocolate, roasted malt, coffee, mocha, caramel... Ans a superbly creamy texture. Everyone Iíve ever served this to becomes a convert.

winkle (476) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - JAN 15, 2005
Bottled: Poured a translucent black with mahogany highlights. Smallish head with some lacing. Subdued chocolate aroma. Flavour was a mellow blending of coffee, toast and chocolate resting on a backbone of alcohol. Thin body, smooth dirty toasted malt finish. Not exceptional but nice and balanced.

this is a really good stout! sweet, cremey, a bit light but thatís good because it makes this a very quaffable beer, high alcohol and i canít tell until iíve drank most of it. most notable flavors are chocolate, coffee, and a good cigar.

heykevin (1276) - Decorah, Iowa, USA - JAN 10, 2005
Nearly black, with a huge head. Sweet rather sorghum-like aroma. Touches of smoke and tar as well. Coffee and loads of sweet malt flavor. Quite light bodied. Fairly sweet, sucrose-like. Very flavorful, though, and I like this. Thanks Eric!

Cdog (32) - Farmington, Michigan, USA - JAN 6, 2005
This is an outstanding stout. Very well balanced between hops and malt with an velvet like dark brown head. Dark black color but very soft on the palate. Good coffee background flavor

Pours oily black - very dark & medium head. Aroma of coffee and wine. Roasted malt flavors dominate. Warming and quite smooth. Somewhat of a greasy mouthfeel.

heemer77 (5100) - Urbandale, Iowa, USA - DEC 21, 2004
Gotta love the pic of Michael Jackson on the side of the six pack. Poured with a fairly large tan head. Some ruby highlights show up when held to light. Aroma is sweat socks and day old coffee. Couldnít get much else in smells. Awful aroma. The mouthfeel is slick with a light playfulness, suprising for the style. Also, plenty of carbonation. The taste has some sugar sweetened coffee. I hate to say it, but I hate sweet coffee. Also a hint of tobacco and some bourbon. This is decent, but nothing to get excited about.

sayravai (4673) - Helsinki, FINLAND - DEC 16, 2004
(Bottled) Almost pitch black color with a large, cocoa-brown, lacy head. Very roasted-malty, quite dry and chocolatey aroma. When warm, the aroma is much like in imperial stouts. When even warmer, the aroma turns somewhat port-wineous. Black coffee - milk chocolate - roasted-malty flavor. Very smooth, reasonably full-bodied palate with balanced carbonation. A very nice, dryish and balanced, quite full-bodied stout. Amazing aroma!
