Thick and deep brown head sits atop this black beauty. Chocolate, fruity aroma. Sweet chocolate and roasty bitter flavor, with hints of mocha. Nice and creamy body that goes down bitter and very smoothly.

UPDATED: OCT 14, 2007 Pours almost completely black with a big creamy brown head that doesn’t go away easily :o) Slightly coffee aroma and a lot of roasted malts. Actually the aroma seems kind of sweet, with a feeling og dark syrup or dark sugars. The beer starts sweet with coffee flavours and an apparent freshness seldom seen in such a stout. The pang comes later, when the sweetness resides and the roasty malts come to the forefront.

bhensonb (10777) - Woodland, California, USA - JUL 14, 2007
Dark roasted/burnt malt aroma, and possibly chocolate and dark fruit. It’s a mix. Opaque black color with a tan head that sticks around. Thin bodied. Mild carbonation. Starts with a tarry, burnt malt flavor. Dark fruits transit, and the finish is darkly burnt, with some substantial bitter. It is truly something. The finish is toasted and bitter. It hardly gets better than this.
