3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle @ room temperature, almost breakfast. Black, coarse brown head. Good bitter coffee bean aroma, slight tar, dark chocolate, little liquorice and herbal hops. Very much about the coffee. Herbal, burned flavor, stale coffee, dry and ashy cocoa finish. Medium bodied, sticky palate. Just not thick or smooth enough.

Poured like oil to a fairly large coco-colored head. Roasty coffee aroma. Taste is similar -- lots of coffee notes, roasted flavors, slight bit of sweetness. Nice long-lasting finish for roast. A very good stout!

UPDATED: NOV 27, 2008 Bottle. Poured very dark black, with a thin tan head. Delicious inviting nose of chocolate and coffee, more coffee than chocolate. Has that nice small bubble carbonation, that sort of tickles your tongue and throat. Great bitter finish, very long lasting flavor, a GREAT beer.

Pours black and has a brown head. Aroma of coffee, chocolate, matls, and wood. Taste is of roasted malts, strong coffee, and dark chocolate. Body isn’t as heavy as I had expected, making it go down easy. Lingering bitter chocolate taste. I could easily drink this on a regular basis. Ends with a stong bitter taste.
