3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: AUG 4, 2014 A bit watery with a taste of mocha-coffee infused treacle. Not the worst but not the best.
Too weak for what I was expecting.

3.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: JAN 12, 2007 I was having one hell of a time getting any kind of scent off this beer. Not much of an aroma, I could dectect some very slight chocolate scents but that was about it. Pour is a nice opaque black with your typical copper/brown head. Now the taste. This stuff is light as hell. This one definately does not share the typical flavor characteristics of a stout. Its smooth but not malty, and has a bit of a sweet taste to it. Overall I would rate this one slightly above average.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Dark body with a creamy head, much like espresso. A smoke flavor is dominant as well as a hint of something sweet. I was pleased with this bottle.

17 oz can. Pours opaque black with a tan head. Coffee and molasses aroma with some fruit. A bit nutty, coffee, cocoa. Easy drinking for such a high ABV.

4.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
625 ML bottle. Poured almost black with a large creamy light brown head that quickly reduced in size and had excellent lacing. Picked up molasses, dark chocolate, and toasted grains in its aroma. This beer is smooth, initial flavor is slightly sweet, toasted, coffee, dark chocolate, some raisin even a touch of wine. Did I mention smooth. Body was full with a creamy almost syrupy texture and soft carbonation. The finish was long and wonderful, as it warmed the alcohol became a bit more evident. if it has a drawback it is its sweetness, if you drink more than 16 oz, or two glasses at a time it can leave that sryupy taste in your mouth. Excellent!

Very nice. Chocolatey, coffeeish, a very good stout. Well balanced, not too bitter, not too sweet.
