Bottle from Irishboy, Thanks Richard. Pours out a dark brown color with a thick tan head on it. Smell is coffee and chocolate with some malty and hoppy overtones. Taste is dry and similar to a porter. Pretty sweet, lots of coffee and chocolate come through on this one. Interesting beer, very smooth and worth seeking out if you can find it. Good stuff

(Bottle via trade with <A HREF=http://www.ratebeer.com/ViewUser.asp?UserID=3 target=blank>IrishBoy, thanks Richard!) Smooth, nice, somewhat porter-like...Pours dark cola brown with large light cocoa brown head. Aroma is mostly milk chocolate with some light coffee roast. Mouthfeel quite smooth, very lightly oily. Poor, spotty lacing. Flavor is mostly milk chocolatey with a touch of coffee roast, esp. in finish. Bitterness mostly in finish and aftertaste. Pretty good but smells and tastes more like a porter.

rmussman (1702) - California, USA - MAR 1, 2007
Sampled a 12 oz bottle and enjoyed it. It poured very nicely with a very dark brown appearance, nearly black. Drank very smoothly with a hint of roasted spices and chocolate. Worth a try.

Body is a black with ruby edges, no head. Aroma is very roasty , with some smoke, coffee and espresso. Taste is pretty coffee oriented, with a nice hop background, some caramel shows up also. Mouthfeel is about where it should be.

NYHarvey (2153) - New York, New York, USA - OCT 27, 2006
Courtesy of Footbalm. Lighty roasty aroma with some mild brown ale nuttiness and very faint coffee suggestions. The body is dark brown to flat black and holds a creamy tan head that is about a thumb thick and lasting, but slightly bubbly on the sides. The first sip is slightly thin then a lot of roasted malt profile comes through with some cream notes and faint coffee. Tastes pretty good and has a nice burnt/roast bitterness in the finish. A mite thin, but tasty and enjoyable overall.

Roasty aroma, some prune, nuts, and coffee. Not much head, but dark colored. Nice flavor, coffee, cola, nutty. Medium body, pretty good beer.

SDalkoholic (2146) - Linda Vista, California, USA - JUN 8, 2006
Delightful aroma of mocha, chocolate and nuts. Pours a dark opaque brown with a creamy layer of film. The drink is carbonated and has caffeine flavor and sensation as well as a undertone of coffee. Certainly a dry stout and at a very affordable price.
