Skyview (5360) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - JUL 17, 2007
Last stop in Portland during ABA Beer Tour 07. On draught at the brewpub pours a clear dark brown brew with a light tan head that quickly dissolves to a tan ring. Aroma of smoked bittersweet chocolate, some mocha powder, and toffee. Taste is smooth, creamy with some chocolate and coffee tastes. Finish creamy with a slightly tart chocolate aftertaste.

harrisoni (15794) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - OCT 29, 2006
On tap at Lucky Labrador, Quimby St, Portland. This was down as 6.1%. Black with ruby edges. Sour damson and molasses aroma, softer in mouth. Great sour stout with real character. Lots of choc malt. Great character.

patrick767 (3812) - fort wayne, Indiana, USA - SEP 24, 2006
tap at the brewpub - Pours block with a one finger tan head. The aroma is of roast malt and licorice. The flavor has coffee and licorice notes and the finish is fairly dry. The body is thicker than Labrador’s Irish Stout, making this a robust beer, as a stout should be. Good beer.

omhper (21892) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - FEB 20, 2006
Draught at the brewpub. Black, small head. Strong coffee aroma. Dryish with lots of coffee and licorice, soft mouthfeel. Packed with flavours derived from roasty malt. A good, robust stout.

harlequinn (2744) - Tacoma, Washington, USA - JAN 2, 2006
This was just a really weak, average and bland, albeit slightly sweet stout. Typical roasty chocolate maltiness, some coffee and cream and not much more.

Styles (2014) - Lincoln Park, Michigan, USA - NOV 6, 2005
Bottle courtesy of Wohlfs. Pours almost transparent black with only a ring of film. Aroma is all licorice and nothing else. Flavor is mostly licorice with a root beer like quality to it. Too thin for a stout.

CaptKirk (175) - Hephzibah, Georgia, USA - OCT 20, 2005
Deep red color, lighter then you would think for a stout. Sweet smell that is unexpected. Finished sweet at first, then had a little bitterness. Fair beer to have there, but not in my fridge.

Silphium (3190) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - SEP 19, 2005
Sampled at the Ohio Labor Day gathering, provided by Styles. Dark red-brown body, translucent, next to no head. Licorice and toast aroma. The body seemed excessively licoricey to me, with toast and little else. Little in the way of complexity or character.
