jcalbi (380) - Medford, New Jersey, USA - FEB 10, 2002
Not a bad stout but I have to agree it is a little thin for a stout and it also suffers from a bad case of being too hyped up. Nice mocha chocolate taste.

rickgordon (3846) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - JUN 26, 2004
Bottled. Dark muddy brown. Rich aroma and flavour: Aroma: Fruits and cocoa. Flavour: Milk chocolate, coffee but a bit too swet maybe with a clean maltiness. Creamy palate.

Ringo (963) - Loveland, Colorado, USA - JUL 16, 2004
A nice stout, from Sri Lanka of all places. Good flavor but it has a very thin body, almost as if someone spilled about a half a lager in there. That’s not a bad thing but it makes it taste a little strange, hence the 2/5 for palate. I suppose that it gets pretty hot in Sri Lanka, so that would explain it. A hot weather stout!

Shag (2698) - Chattanooga, Tennessee, USA - JUL 30, 2004
The beer poured black as a death with a very large head. After that settled the aroma was dark malts. The flavor was mainly dark chocolate and some dark fruit as well. The body on this beer was a little thin. Overall not the greatest stout but a nice one anyway.

Murphy (1759) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - AUG 6, 2004
Big head. Malty mouthfell. Slighly sweet, some sour vinous notes. Decent, but a little overrated.

TChrome (1447) - Bedford, Texas, USA - AUG 8, 2004
Very dark brown with a big frothy head. Malty sweet aroma with a bit of cream. Flavor is chocolate, roasted nuts, and the alcohol shows up just a bit. A good, not great stout.

HumuloneRed (751) - Portland, Oregon, USA - NOV 8, 2004
Pours very dark with a big fluffy tan head and great lacing. Smoky/roasty malt nose with notes of oxidation. Very smooth caramel and roast flavor with a nice hop bittternesss in the finish. It hides the 8% abv. very well. Not great but not bad either.

winkle (477) - 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.

Brad (364) - Berkley, Michigan, USA - JUN 10, 2005
12 oz Bottle: Pours a deep dark brown, nearly opaque but some faint light does manage its way through, with what started as a nice big hilly head, but diminished quickly. Aromas of coffee and chocolate, roast as well. Flavor was of milk chocolate and hints of smoke not present in the aroma. Mouthfeel was lighter than I expected.
