omhper (20176) - 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 (3179) - 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.

With BBB63 for 2000th, (i think he had something else picked out but I had opened it an poured it so off we went). Looked like cola, tasted like mocha latte--I have had better.

Pailhead (5195) - Brownstown, Michigan, USA - SEP 5, 2005
Bottle: Courtesy of Styles. Aroma of black licorice and root beer with a touch of chocolate. Pours a dark brown with an insignificant tan head. Lots of black licorice in the flavor with some light root beer in the background. Finishes with a light black coffee bitterness and a touch of mocha. A little thin for a stout.

BBB63 (6201) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - SEP 5, 2005
RATING #2000! Bottle provided from Wohlfs via Styles and enjoyed at the Labor Day Gathering:

Nearly opaque deep brown with some lace produced by a thin ring of bubbles. The aroma has notes of anise, plum, fig, chocolate, and smoky malts. The taste is very twangy and a large anise and peppery overtones. The base is quite earthy and has some coffee and mocha undertones. The finish is smoky and mildly bitter. The feel is oily and biting, some astrengent quality to the mouth feel. Okay and different, enjoyable for this stoutie. Onward towards 2112...

This was a nice Stout but just did not ring my bell. The flavor was just missing something. I can hardly taste the rich flavors a stout should have. I was not impressed. Drank this at the Oregon Brewers Guild 2005 Dinner.
