looks good. The head has a nice dark color. I smells like chocolate and licorice. Iíve never tasted so much chocolate in a beer. Very creamy. Itís pretty heavy, I donít think Iíd want more than 1

A very nice, chocalate flavored stout. Not very thick for a stout, at least to me, but a nice strong flavor, mainly of chocalate and a light coffee flavor. An excellent beer for dessert.

cathcacr (637) - Oregon, USA - MAY 17, 2002
I like it. Strong smell of something fruity(?) in the aroma. Pours dark brown/black with brown head that recedes quickly. The taste is mild and pleasing with predominant chocolate presence. Soft on the palate, though I do prefer more crispness. I could definitely come back to it.

dark as the la brea tar pits, mammoths are advised to avoid open pools of mackeson. actually it does have a warm brown glow that emmanates from deeply within, like a vulcan mine smoldering deep under a mountain. a remarkable froth of almost reddish umber espresso creama on top. a nose as big as a toucanís and just as colorful: youíve got your french roast and figs, maple and dark chocolate. the flavor delivers the same--it only remains for me to adjudicate a verdict on the added sugar. like sweetner in an espresso, it probably aids drinkability-- or renders it portlike and functional as a desert. but...but...itís really too sweet for me, alas.
