I think Cewldre sent me a growler of this. Thanks! Pours a nice deep black with not much light shining through- decent head and good lace. Aroma is sharp nutty chocolate malts, with lots of roast and coffee- very clean. Nice toasty and sharp roasted malts, chocolates, light doughy yeast and some mineral in the finish. Damn- this was way better than expected. Very well made stout.

Growler shared by Dickinsonbeer. It pours black with a small tan head. Aroma is strong with fume-y chocolate and espresso bean. Taste is lightly mineral and sweat dark malts. Very nice, highly drinkable stout.

hophead75 (2012) - Largo, Florida, USA - DEC 29, 2007
Shared by dickinsonbeer at his gathering, from a growler. Black in color- no head, looks like the carbonation is suffering from the growler. Aroma: roast, chocolate, light notes of caramel and chalk. Taste: assertive roast and chocolate, balanced nicely by some sweet crystal/pale malts. Some lingering roast and dry chocolate in the finish. well done.

Black appearance with a nice brown head. Chocolatey coffee notes that balance really well with the creamy body. Nice and heavy, like a stout should be. Great in front of an outdoor fire. Winner.

UPDATED: OCT 14, 2007 Growler via Mys Swap 2.0 (thanks cewldre!). Pours black with a huge tan head. Nose is chocolate, roasty, and floral hops. Tastes just like it smells, is pretty sweet with a nice mocha finish. Body is light, carbonation moderate/high. Tis is quite tasty and highly sessionable. I would rate it even higher if it wasn’t so over-carbonated.

Thanks to hopdog for the growler... Appears a near black with chestnut edges when held up to the light. The small, tan head fades into a mild film and collar. Smell is of chocolate, caramel, nougat, cream, fresh peanuts, coffee, and cocoa powder. Taste echoes the aromas with some standout mocha flavors that make for an interesting brew. Mouthfeel is medium-full bodied, nutty, with some java lingering.

Poured an opaque black / red color with a medium sized, light tan head that left light lacing on the glass. Aroma of vanilla, roasted malts, and chocolate. Taste of chocolate, roast, light caramel malts, with dark fruits, and a fully attenuated, dry, finish. A straight-forward stout here.
