scraff (2121) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - APR 2, 2005
Deep black, light tan creamy head. The nose was a rich and complex mix of roasted bittersweet chocolate malt, berry, vanilla, and hints of caramel. The flavor was full of soft roasty notes and bittersweet cocoa, with additional berry and coffeeish flavors throughout. A very nice hop bitterness brings it all together in the end to maintain balance. Medium to full bodied, pillow soft carbonation, velvety, dry, light bittersweet chocolate finish. Reminds me of a softer version of the Brooklyn BCS. Very nice stout...

HopsformyHips (113) - Memphis, Tennessee, USA - MAR 29, 2005
This was a very very nice stout specimine. Big beautiful litght brown head on a nice dark brown pour. Bitter sweet chocolate and a subtle roasted coffee flavor. Nothing outstanding, but nicely balanced with some sweet darker fruits. Just a very stable stout.

BrockLanders (779) - Panama City, Florida, USA - MAR 28, 2005
Bottle. Pours a deep dark brown with a large thick and deep brown head. Aroma is full of dark roasty malts, vanilla notes, chocolatey, and fruity. Taste is lotsa sweet chocolate and roasty malt flavors.....raisins and plums...plus some latent bitter flavors. Mouthfeel is nice and creamy with a full body. Finish is nicely bitter and slightly fruity also. Better than anticipated....tasty!.

kumite56 (471) - Cordova, Tennessee, USA - MAR 28, 2005
This was an excellent stout. Beautiful black body with a large tan head. Aroma is intensely malty and roasty and fruity as a good stout should be. Excellent palate and the flavor is balanced, no burnt taste and a great blend of sweet and dried fruit with a nice bitter finish.

hopscotch (9891) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - MAR 25, 2005
Bottle...This beer rocks!... Very dark ale with a mid-sized, creamy, well-tanned head. Ink-blot lacing. Aroma and flavor of dried plum, molasses and chocolate. A touch of cola in there too. Full-bodied and silky smooth with moderate carbonation. Lengthy, chocolatey finish. Really nice, world class beer!

Jan Primus (160) - Waterloo, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 25, 2005
Poured black with a fuge, foamy head. Very smooth, almost a bit watery and light-medium in body for 8%, the taste is very pleasant, coffee and chocolate. A subdued stout, not a standout, but good.

TheBeerGod (5433) - Newport News, Virginia, USA - MAR 23, 2005
Bottle. Pours opaque black with a tall, sturdy brown head. Nose is slightly roasty and nutty with moments of milk chocolate and dark fruit. Taste is very fruity and slightly spicy with notes of milk chocolate, roasted malt, and nuts. Body is medium with some smooth creamy parts and alternating carbonation sharpness. Finish is sweet malts, bittersweet chocolate, light cocoa, figs, light spice, and light nuttiness. Great stuff!

bombshelter (349) - San Francisco, California, USA - MAR 23, 2005
bottle from brickskeller. pours a low head and opaque dark color. very little aroma (could just be the number of beers i’ve had), but flavor is dominated by dark chocolate, nuts, roast, and some other fruitiness (figs?). Finishes far too sweet for my taste: my tongue feels like a sticky mess.

JCapriotti (1379) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 23, 2005
Large creamy brown head... dark brown body. Excellent lacing. Nice dry chocolatey aroma with underlying complexities of vanilla. Great subtle yet overwhelming taste of dark chocolate, espresso, and whisky casks. It almost seems a bit too sweet after a while though.
