Beardface (1517) - Eugene, Oregon, USA - NOV 1, 2008
Dark brown nearly black pour with a decent sized dark brown head. Has a smoky and peppery coffee aroma and has a dense taste that is mainly coffee but also some pepper and is layered with a very dry finish at the end. A surprsingly smooth and tasty brew that I enjoyed more than I thought I would.

GuilTTy (728) - Cherry Hill, New Jersey, USA - OCT 30, 2008
Another bottle from Canal’s in Lawrenceville, NJ. Very deep and opaque brown pour under a small but dense dark brown head. Initial aroma of dark roasted coffee followed by chocolate and a little smoke. More deeply roasted coffee and semisweet chocolate in the flavor with just a touch of dark fruit tapping at the sides of the tongue. Creamy texture and a long, smooth finish. A really nice beer. Thanks to Moylan’s (or the local distributor) for making more of their brews available out here.

jercraigs (8644) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 26, 2008
2008-10-22. Modest foamy tan head tops a black body. Aroma of dry malt, roasty, very light wood/chocolate. (6+) Dry roasty malt in the flavour, modest roasty bitterness throughout. Bit of sweet dark malt in the finish. Average to medium palate. (3+) Solid stout, bit dry for me. Bottle shared by HogTownHarry

HogTownHarry (6267) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - OCT 22, 2008
Bottle (22oz). Shared with blankboy, garthicus, jerc and mabel - my bottle. Deep ruby-black, light brown diminishing head. Dry, medium-roast aroma, a little treacly and herbal. Love the taste - soft, perfect carbonation, cocoa, cream, light dry herbal bitterness and light coffee, not boozy at all. Smooth and nice.

badgerben (4629) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - OCT 22, 2008
Black color with a thin head. Aroma of whiskey and dry malts. Plenty of roasted malt character. Light chocolate. Tastes a litlte sherry-like. I’m a fan of this over the Ryan O’Sullivan Impy Stout.

BlackForestCO (978) - Aurora, Colorado, USA - OCT 21, 2008
Bottle shared by mmtmatrix. Poured a deep brown color with some red highlights and a thin beige head that faded to a ring. Aroma of moderate roasted malt, a hint of coffee, some cocoa powder. Smooth, lightly sweet entry leads into a light roastiness with some soft coffee that drops right into a soft hoppy finish. Low carbonation and thin on the palate. Pretty basic and unimpressive, perhaps a bad bottle.

joergen (23765) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - OCT 20, 2008
Draught at GABF 2008. Black coloured with a medium sized beige head. Roasted aroma dominated by peat with notes of coffee. Roasted flavour of peat and coffee with notes of hops. Roasted finish.

Vac (2445) - San Diego, California, USA - OCT 17, 2008
Pours wtih a black body topped by a thick head with lots of lacing left behind. It’s malty and roasty with a slight bitter sweet chocolate note. Full bodied and smooth.

Moosington (28) - Costa Mesa, California, USA - OCT 17, 2008
Pours a dark brown/black with a cloudy tan head. Sweet caramel/hops and roasted coffee in the nose. Sweet malt at first in the flavor with a turn to heavy roasted dry finish with just enough carbonation.

piscator34 (2152) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - OCT 16, 2008
Bottled sample. Near black in colour with medium carbonation. Aromas of milk chocolate, caramel, roasted malts, minty and woody hops, along with a hint of red grapes. Fairly choco-sweet upfront in the mouth with a lot of rich malt flavors (for a dry stout), before the mineral-like drying effect of the dark roasted malts kick in. A well put together stout, but perhaps a little sweet to be considered a dry stout. Very tasty.
