Brown pour with tan head. Huge coffee aroma with chocolate sidenotes. Flavor was very espresso like with some solid chocolate, minor hops and of course malt thrown into the mix. very solid beer.

Courtesy dsnowden. Black, black/brown edges. 3cm of chocolate milk shake head. Looks great. Flavor and aroma of roasty and grainy malt, roasted coffee, bittersweet dark chocolate, milk chocolate, and subtle resinous hops. Medium/full body, balanced carbonation. Rich yet easy to drink. Really would be an excellent breakfast beer. Top notch stout.

UPDATED: JAN 7, 2008 Black body with an initially medium tan head. Aroma is very roasted, fresh citrusy hops and pastry dough. Main flavours are the usual three amigos: roastiness, chocolate and coffee beans. The chocolate flavour is not like black bitter chocolate, it is more like rich chocolate cake with a sweet chocolate cream. The high roastiness level (may be a bit too roasted) detracts the attention away from the rich and smooth chocolate. The roasted coffee beans flavour are there but not as upfront as with many breakfast stouts. A very pleasant astringency lighten up the experience. This generously hopped beer develops some kind of green apples flavour/astringency in the finish that makes a bottle go down even more quickly. Full but silk body with soft carbonation. Certainly one my favourite ďlittleĒ stouts ever (8% and less). Feels like a 5%. And yes, Iíve been a beer geek on at least one occasion.

Bottle from Brawleys. I had to buy this in another state ícause all the dudes in this GA hoarded all of it. Nice stout. Iím getting ready for the time of year when these go perfectly. Smooth and slightly sweet. All the elements play well here. Oat malt gives some body. Coffee aromas and slight bitter coffee flavor. Some bittersweet chocolate notes in there too. Creamy texture. Big brown head.

Bittersweet flavor, Coffee, baking chocolate, little dairy, little viney. Thick body, creamy mouthfeel, dry finish with a bitter streak. Very good stout. Enjoyed every drop, Flavor was great the whole way through. Body might of thinned a bit as it warmed.

Nearly black color with thin ring of chocolate colored foam that coats the glass. Fresh roasted coffee aroma with faint hints of cocoa powder and dark fruits. Roasted barley and coffee flavors hit the tongue followed by subtle notes of chocolate covered cherries. A slight smokiness is apparent before a dry bitter roasty finish. A well crafted stout for sure, but not one of the worldís best IMHO.

Bottle: Pours a intense black color with a small tan head. Very little lacing. Nose is rich with coffee, roast, mocha, and hints of oats. The taste is a creamy blend of roast, coffee, chocolate, and light bitters. The coffee compliments the brew well rather than overpowering it.

Bottle placed into my brand new, shiny beer graile. Iím pretty excited about it and decided to break it in in style. Pour is really thick and blackish brown with a short-lived brown head that, with time dies down to a thin film on the surface with a few bubbles rising above the etched area on the bottom. Aromas are strongly charcoal-ish with lots of peat and espresso. Maybe there is a bit of an anise seed tilt to it, too. Mouthfeel is silky and exquisit. The smokey charcoal flavor leads the charge, but is quickly supported by some espresso, dark chocolate and peat... and I think that Iím picking up some of that anise in the background. Very smooth and I could probably drink several bombers of it before I realized what a bad idea that was. For a plain Jane stout, this is fantastic... I must say that, while at first I was a little disappointed (expecting some sort of trumpet blast or other sort of epiphany/divine experience and not finding it) this really grew on me as I worked my way through the bottle... take your time, enjoy it and let it air and warm.

22oz bottle from Florianís. Pitch-black completely opaque body with a good inch of light brown head. The first completely opaque beer Iíve ever had. Smells like burnt malt and good coffee. Tastes like burnt and roasted malts, as well as oatmeal with a generous dose of coffee as well. No real hop or alcohol presence here. This stout is thick - you could cut this with a knife and fork. Probably the thickest feeling carbonated beer Iíve ever encountered. Definitely a sipper due to the big taste and mouthfeel, but one sip definitely invites another like few beers do. I am unbelievably impressed with this beer. I cannot say enough good things about it; it exemplifies everything I love about stouts - and about beer in general. A new favorite! I could drink this morning, noon, and night. Iíll be buying many several more in the coming weeks!
