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

Good dark stout appearance with a dark head. Mild coffee aroma with a very a smooth bitter flavour with a very bitter finish. Overall though a basic stout.

TheBeerCollector (633) - Woodstock, Georgia, USA - JAN 1, 2004
Pours black with an off white head that lasts quite well. Smooth but thin texture with distinct chocolate flavors. Some nice hop bitterness in the finish.

Yankovitch333 (612) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - DEC 17, 2003
Pours black, with a thick tan head. This beer is beautiful to look at. Aroma is strong. Roasted malts, coffee, and chocolate are predominant. But it totally lacks in flavor. There are some light roasted malt flavor but they are overshadowed by this strange saltiness. It's almost like baking soda saltiness.

frylock (1135) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - DEC 14, 2003
Very dark with a nice creamy light brown head. Big aroma of coffee and chocolate. Lots of roasted barley flavors, bitter finish. Thin bodied.

baobubba (455) - Starkville, Mississippi, USA - DEC 6, 2003
Dark opaque with golden hightlights on the pour. Tall dark khaki head. Dark roasted aroma of toast and bread. Blackberry and coffee come out when the aromas are studied. Dry with a burnt bitter finish. Roasted barley lingers after the moderatly sour finish. A little thin on the mouthfeel, but not distracting.

urbnhautebourg (997) - Annapolis, Maryland, USA - NOV 30, 2003
Big dark head, obviously black body. Rusty aroma, rusty flavor too. Very light palate. Flavor has some complexity, and truly lives up to its billing as a 'dry' stout, but the whole thing is just too damned watery for my taste.

Ungstrup (28448) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - NOV 23, 2003
A pitch black beer with a beutiful huge chocolate brown head. The aroma is sweet with light notes of chocolate. The flavor is slightly sour combined with bitter chocolate - it ends on a good bitterness. A nice dry stout.

Bottle. A pleasant enough stout. Pleasant aromas. Nice fluffy coffee coloured head. Nicely roasted. But nothing special.
