Did not particularly care for this stout. Subdued cocao flavor with mild esspresso hints. DId not see much head retention. Kind of a roasted malt aftertaste with a wetdog kick. Nothing stars in this but there are a lot of interesting wintery backup singers. Decent but average.

Bottle... Dark crimson ale with a small, creamy, light brown head. Decent retention. Smells like a blend of spent coffee grounds and unsweetened cocoa. Mildly oxidized in both the aroma and flavor. Watery. Good bitterness; ash and charcoal. No residual sweetness. Medium-bodied with a dusty mouthfeel and lively carbonation. Finishes burnt, medium bitter and dry.

From a 12 oz. bottle with no freshness date. Poured a blackish coffee brown with a rocky, creamy tan head, good retention, small amount of laced sticking. Aromas of burnt chocolate and roasted coffee, a very light vanilla at the edges. Good moderate carbonation and a crisp, creamy smooth medium bodied mouthfeel. Pleasant stout taste, roasted coffee with hints of chocolate and molasses, a very subtle berry fruitiness, a slight flash of alcohol towards the end and a roasted coffee malty finish. Not a great stout, but not a bad one either, smooth, easy drinkability, I would like to try this from the tap.

HumuloneRed (751) - Portland, Oregon, USA - NOV 15, 2006
Beer of the month club beer. Pours a nice clear dark crimson with a light tan head and slick lacing. Roast, chocolate, and malt in the nose. Smooth roasty notes with a good bitter bite in the finish. Nice stout.

crazyvin (1938) - New York, USA - NOV 10, 2006
Seemed to have a nice smokey quality too it. A good balance between sweet malts and a nice roasted coffee charahcter. a Smooth drik that could have been fuller, but still held its own.

nnice well balanced nose with hints of toffee and coffee, taste is initially malty with a solid hop finish, nicely balanced stout, not extraordinary but pretty good

PorterPounder (5538) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - NOV 4, 2006
UPDATED: NOV 8, 2006 Black as coal pour with a brief mocha colored head. Roasty, coffee-like aroma with some potting soil earthy notes. Dry stout flavor with good roastiness and black coffe notes. Some baker’s chocolate in there as well. Solidly thick mouthfell. Overall, a most decent stout. Gift from Aurelius - "Ale in the Mail" leftover.

festyzizzle (30) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - OCT 20, 2006
Beer of the month. Coffee explosion. Dark black beer with a tan head. Nose of coffee, roasted nuts and a little chocolate. Flavor was similar but with a milk like finish. A real rich beer.

Aurelius (4171) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - OCT 19, 2006
Charred nut aroma with light creosote. Nearly opaque, very, very black brown with a tan head. No budget on the label, obviously. Dryish, some light cola sweetness, coffee, chicory. Nothing too complex, but a fair dark beer. Medium body, long char finish. Ale-in-the-Mail offering.

pours out a small redish head that turns light brown. I can taste a little brown sugar and coffee. Missing some of those key ingredients that the top stouts have.
