Great color and very nice smoothness, I don't know when I have enjoyed a straight stout as much. I like balance in my brews and this has that

Dark color, dark brown generous head. Deep coffee aroma; roasted malt; yeast. Smooth, good balance of sweetness and bitterness; malt, roasted malt, coffee; a very light acidity (high carbonation, maybe). Final not enough interesting, some sweetness, not too long.
A pleasant sweet stout.

This is a good stout. Lots of flavor in the way of chocolate. Very dark, with a nice finish of the syrian hops.

Quite dark, but, then again, it's a stout, and that's a given. Good-sized puffy head. Nose has molasses and chocolate. Flavor is nicely smoky, with a hint of bitterness. When I spilled half of the bottle on myself, it was quite wet. Cold, too. Spotted the carpet admirably. Viscous enough to be difficult to clean up. May have possibly spilled a drop or two into the keyboard, meaning there's a real possibility of a sticky "n" key in the future. Monitor ratings for future misspellings to check on this. In short, quite a nice beer. Oh, and I'm still clumsy.

UPDATED: SEP 2, 2003 Pours a deep, dark red color with a thick, brown head. The aroma is a bit off--not bad, but a little boring and lifeless. I also found the flavors to be a bit lackluster. Some chocolate, coffee, smoke and roasted malt, but nothing really stood out as exceptional. Good, but not great.

Extremely smokey flavor dominates this beer. A slight sweetness adds to the pleasant, clean finish. A good, tasty stout.

The six pack of this I bought was in such bad shape, that it looked like it FLOATED here from Sri Lanka. But anyway......this has a deep, dark, black appearance and an aroma filled with dates, raisins, brown sugar and coffee. This is silky-smooth and chewy. It tastes like licorice, coffee, chocolate and currants. There is a lot of roastiness, bording on a smokey flavor. This leaves a tingly, enjoyable, alcoholic feeling on the tongue. A very pleasant surprise.

another find at another store on the bottom shelf in the back, in the dark.Sweet smell of hops and coffee. Flavours of chocolate. coffee,licorice,raisins.Malty character of cookies,and roasted grains. This is an incredible beer, dynamic, robust hops and one of the best finishes I have ever had,my goodness man this one floored me. Drank at cellar temp, a clear concise choice of quality and absolutley a top 50 beer, Extremely Recommended !

Bottle. Black with ruby tints and a lush and grand brown head. Lots of chocolate and a sweet malt aroma with some lingering liqueur mist. A thick and creamy malted chocolate flavor.
