RaphaelN (195) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 1, 2007
Finely brewed stout. The palate was fairly complex with interesting flavours that I have never witnessed in a beer before. I coudln’t even tell what most of them were. Nose was coffee and nuts. Flavour was of caramel, chocolate, coffee and some sort of spice that I can’t quite put my finger on. Not my favourite to drink. The flavour really overwhelms me at times, but I would drink this again.

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.

Jwasciuk (198) - Lowell, Michigan, USA - MAR 6, 2007
UPDATED: AUG 10, 2007 Pours muddy black with a large creamy light brown head. Aroma is toasted malts, leather and earthy esters. Flavor is well balanced, rosted malts, and chocolate more apperant in the finish. Medium bodied oliy, softly carbonated a bit of metallic in the finish.

wingman333 (333) - San Antonio, Texas, USA - MAY 17, 2008
Dark beer, light brown head. Thick but not heavy. Smooth and alcohol well-hidden. Caramel flavors and somewhat spicy. Not bad but a little watery.

jredmond (5915) - Manhattan, New York, USA - MAY 18, 2008
bottle. This beer pours a dark dark brown almost black body. The aroma is extremely roasty - as is the taste. Pretty good for 8% as well. Nice stout.

Boring but good...no complexity to it but very smooth and could easily drink a few.

Cheeblee (1) - , North Carolina, USA - AUG 23, 2008 does not count
Bottle. Nice, dark stout with tan, creamy head that did not explode out of the glass. Coffee and roasted malts. Felt smooth and creamy. Great initial flavor, but there was a thin, but decidedly metallic after taste. This faded as I drank it, but the memory was still there. Too bad as it was a very good stout up until that point.

MaltOMeal (1092) - Land of Sugar, Texas, USA - AUG 27, 2008
bottle thanks to mmm/beer. Pours black with a large tan head but little lacing. Smell is funky phenol, burnt malt and soy. taste is phenol and malt with no coffee or chocolate noticeable. Mouthfeel is medium-to-thin and disappointing.
