Ernest (6143) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - NOV 26, 2004
UPDATED: JAN 6, 2005 Head is initially average sized, frothy, light brown, mostly . Body is clear medium to dark brown. Aroma is moderately malty (roasted grain, nuts), lightly yeasty (dough), lightly hoppy (resin, apricots). Flavor is moderately sweet, moderately acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, moderately acidic, moderately bitter, slightly husky. Medium body, velvety texture, lively carbonation. A sour, simple, yeasty, unrefined example. And not even close to black in color. Cheers to Marc for the opportunity to try it!

Almost always in my fridge. The perfect beer for those times when I can’t decide whether I want an IPA or a stout. A helluva deal for $5 bucks. Makes an interesting black and tan.

As the bitterness lingers, I wish for another... as I swag this down at room temperature, sweet smell but a sharp taste still lingers... a decent stout.

mjg74 (2487) - La Mesa, California, USA - AUG 9, 2004
UPDATED: MAR 9, 2007 Pours dark, but not super dark for a stout. Smells of roasted malts and hops. Dry roasted coffee flavor. Quite a bit of hoppiness for a stout. Good stout.

Sven (229) - Lancaster, California, USA - AUG 8, 2004
Deep ruby-brown colour, quick disappearing tan head which leaves no residual lacing. Appears flat but becomes rather carbonated on the palate. Smells like homebrew, also has a tinge of a metallic smell. Rich roasted malts, chocolate, coffee, and mild hop flavor. Slight metallic aftertaste as well. Nice dry finish, well rounded beer.

Marc (486) - Yokosuka, JAPAN - AUG 4, 2004
NIce dry coffee, milk, coaco, and rosted malt nose. Dark brown body with a loose mocha head. Roasted maltyness boarders on a slight burnt taste, coffee, a little earthy bitterness, touches of dark chocolate and alcohol make appearances. Finishes with more roasted malt and toast.

elnadeau (786) - Laguna Niguel, California, USA - MAY 26, 2004
A pleasant stout, think I detected some rye along with the cocoa, coffee and hop bitterness. Seems very true to the style, enjoyable.

Roasted, dry chocolatey bietter. unpleasant flavor for some reason but solid.

BigBastard (668) - L.A., California, USA - FEB 27, 2004
Tastes of dark chocolate, roasted coffee and malt. Slightly sweet, creamy and smooth with a lightly bitter aftertaste. This is good stuff.

Timmy (15) - San Pedro, California, USA - FEB 19, 2004
Clearly one of the best beers I have tasted. It pours a thick dark opaque brown, with a very thick, everlasting beige head. It's aroma is of deep enticing brown sugars and toasted raisin. The flavors run wild through this thick mealy stout. A slightly bitter flavor burst finishes with smooth chocolate and fruit overtones. Definitely to be incorporated into my list of regulars!
