Not as much of a mouthfull as itís name unfortunately. Dark black body with a nice beige head. Bit of roasty smokiness, in a light-meidum body. Not bad per se but it was not pushing the right buttons for me today.

Excellent head on a black,almost opaque beer. Malty chocolate aroma. More of the same on the taste buds. Bitterness to balance the malt, but not to be prominent. Lager yeast make for a very smooth beer. Some roast that at times smokey or little burnt. Deceivingly light body for such a dark beer. You would expect the body of a stout, or at least a bock, yet it has the body of a pilsner (which is appropriate for the style). I drank mine, I didnít put it in the tub.

hotstuff (4802) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - MAY 9, 2004
Bottle. Poured a medium sized tan head that contained fine-small sized bubbles that fully dissipated. The body was uncarbonated and opaque with a dark brown hue. The aroma was malty, caramel, some chocolate and coffee notes. The flavor was sweet tasting and smooth. The mouthfeel was smooth but the body seemed to be on the thin side. The lacing was very sparse.

Lubiere (12572) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 9, 2004
Black beeer with a nice reddish hue, with a light collapsing moka head. Chocolate vinous aroma with a touch of fresh air. Pleasant caramle malts, some nice little hops, some vanilla. Bodied is lighter than expected but the beer is thoroughly enjoyable. Sweetness is increased by camembert, which alos refreshes the beer even more. A big thanks to Maibockaddict, who recommend a slow sipping session, which i am doing right now, after a day of biking!!! Haaaaa.

This bottled brew poured a medium sized ghead of foamy finely sized light brown colored mostly diminishing bubbles that left behind a fair lacing. The body was opaque black with no visible carbonation. The aroma was full of dark malty notes and a mild licorice overtone. The palate was pretty smooth initially then gave way to a more tingly malty mild nite. The flavor contained notes of dark malts licorice and mild roasted coffee.

jeffc666 (1984) - Fairfax, Virginia, USA - MAR 30, 2004
Very dark, close to black but there are glimmers of ruby around the edges. The aroma is smoky and toasty. The flavor is medium smoky and toasty. Body is a tad thin. But not too bad really.

guzzler67 (1647) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - MAR 30, 2004
Dark brown appearance with a red edge. Coffee in the aroma and the taste. Some sweetness from the roasted malts, but not cloying. Nicely carbonated, giving it a medium-bodied flavor. Smooth, slightly smokey finish.

harlequinn (2744) - Tacoma, Washington, USA - MAR 29, 2004
There is alot of good flavors in this beer, but alot of overpowering unbalance. The flavor is sweet and rich with chocolate, carob and caramel. Some toasted rice flavors in the finish. A bit too thin and perhaps a little chewy.

Shag (2789) - Chattanooga, Tennessee, USA - FEB 11, 2004
Aroma is chocolate, caramel and blackberries. Appearance is dark with a minimal head. Flavor is chocolate, dark fruit, and licorice. Aftertaste is sweet with a hint of sourness on your tounge. This is a nice one and possibly the longest beer name I've had the pleasure to rate.
