COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Midnight black color and rich dark-roasted aroma. Specially blended hops combine with flaked unmalted barley to give this brew a full body and a dense creamy head. All elements combine in a solid, lingering finish.

Solid. Solid in almost all respects. That certain elements are NOT outstanding makes this all the more so. No cloying sweetness. No lingering burnt malt. Balance. Sublime balance with cohesion and clarity and focus and and and and ... just lovely stuff. What a marvel.

Poured dark with nice orange highlights at the rims. Head was khaki and faded quickly. Aromas of earth and cocoa. Nice, thick chocolateness. Great mouthfeel. Warmed nicely as well.

Nuffield (3691) - Roseville, Minnesota, USA - AUG 25, 2004
Notes of early November. Big and very roasted aroma with a vinyl rain poncho smell there too. 100% opaque. Palate the fine but not distinguished. I have a few doubts, but mostly pretty good and certainly worth acquiring.

Lumpy (1802) - Carrollton, Texas, USA - AUG 22, 2004
Bottle. Nose is strong of chocolate and grass. Very odd, but nice. Typical stout flavors-coffee, dark malt, and chocolate. Very mild for a stout. Malty/cereal taste. A mild hop bite on the back end. Not bad but not mind blowing.
