A black stout which is brimming over with roast malt flavours, balanced with a complex hop blend. Really smooth with roasted aftertaste.

looked really nice, a big thick frothy head on top of an onyx liquid, aroma was equally as enticing, with lots of toasted malts, a bit of smoke, coffee and chocolate. unfortunately for this beer, it was downhill from there, flavor was very single faceted - toasted chocolate - and the aftertaste was a bit sour and grassy. body was alot thinner than i think it should be. this could be alot better with some heavier malt content that would boost the flavors and the body to a higher level.

KAggie97 (3529) - Ugly, Hot, and Humid Spring, Texas, USA - JUL 18, 2005
Pours a beautiful onyx with a healthy, frothy head that clings to the glass. Aroma is almost exclusively chocolate, with a bit of smoked malt thrown in for good measure. Flavor is a titilating blend of smoke and malt, heavy on the smoke. Some peat is detectable. This is a stout all unto its own. I WOULD LOVE ANOTHER ONE OF THESE.

1FastSTi (3357) - Glendale, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 10, 2005
Pours to a dark black body with a thick, fully lasting head (in a tall, tapered glass) with excellent lacing. In my glass (a snifter), it didnít pour so fortunate and immediately disapated. As such, Iíll go 50-50 with a 4. The aroma is chocolate with a touch of peat and wood, too weak, however. The flavor is peaty. Lightly roasted coffee. Too weak. Very boring and average. Probably too few ingredients in it. The palate is thin and slick. Too average. Iíve had WAAAAAYYYYY better stouts.

MIBRomeo (2570) - Wisconsin, USA - JUL 10, 2005
poured a dark color w/ cascading look a large thick tan head good sticky lacing. Smelled fairly mild for a stout roasted malts light carmel and a hint of vanilla. Palate is over carbonated and overly thin. Flavor is very bland and weak a roasty almost smoked malt and not much else at all. Overall nothing special.

Eyedrinkale (3213) - Astoria, New York, USA - JUL 2, 2005
500 ml bottle pours with a small bubbled tan head. Aroma is sweet choolate and rich day old coffee. First taste is nicely bitter but a bit thin bodied. Flavors are good though but just too damn thin. Some tobacco in there as well.

NYHarvey (2153) - New York, New York, USA - JUN 29, 2005
UPDATED: JAN 9, 2007 The aroma is coffee, cocoa powder and chocolate with a light roastiness. Smells nice. It pours dark brown to blacka nd holds a fairly lasting craggy mocha head. Very thin bodied fore, but nice toasted flavors of malt, coffee and chocolate. Hints at molasses and black licorice without ever really going there all the way. The finish is watery and the flavor really drops out. This could be good, but as it stands it nearly has the body of a porter and doesnít really satisfy my stout tooth.

cvillebeer (134) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - JUN 26, 2005
This is an opaque black with a thick tan head. The aroma is of roasted barley and black malt with a little noticeable hops. The creamy mouthfeel leads to a dry roasty finish. Nice.
