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.

Drew (2411) - Kent, Ohio, USA - MAR 10, 2004
Roasty! Shiny black body, thick bubbly red/brown head, nice lacing. Nice smooth palate - not super thick, just smooooth. This stout was sweet until it started warming, then it got very roasty. Loved the finish - roast on the roof of the mouth, dark chocolate at the back of the tongue, hops along the edges. (thanks slikwilly!)

BBB63 (5743) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - FEB 25, 2004
Atlanta Gathering: Deep brown with purple highlights producing a creamy tan head and outstanding lacing. The aroma is fruity (cherry, current, and grapefruit), semi-sweet chocolate, molasses, aromatic and noble hops, smoky and woody, dusty yeast esters. The taste is balanced between the sweet mocha roasted malt nature and a blend of hops (northern American and European). A fruity nature is detected midsection and is followed by a vanilla flavored coffee and smoky wood character. Medium to full-bodied, this stout produces a rich, smooth and astringent mouthfeel, nicely complex on the tongue. A whole is better than the parts beer, recommended for all stouties and lovers of genre. Thanks KP for brings this to Summits.

CaptainCougar (7129) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - FEB 23, 2004
Pours a robust dark brown with a thin tan head. Aroma is rich and chocolatey. Body has decent thickness and good sweet dark malty presence. Milk chocolate and coffee notes combine to give good complexity and round out the beer. A very nice dry stout. Thanks to kp for bringing this to the Atlanta gathering!

Slick (1969) - Thief River Falls, Minnesota, USA - FEB 23, 2004
Dark black color,medium sized tan head that had a decent hang time and left behind a nice lace.The aroma was chocolate and roasty malt,coffee and caramel.The flavor was outstanding malty and chocolate with a nice hop presence maybe a bit more alcohol then it let on and mild notes of coffee and possibly a mild sweet side.This was one hell of a brew and more then worth getting a few more for later,which i'm glad to say i definately did.

harlequinn (2744) - Tacoma, Washington, USA - FEB 22, 2004
This is an incredible stout. Perfectly balanced, with lots of dark chocolate roastedness. Doughy and vastly rich in flavor, but so easy to drink. Lots of chewy, burnt espresso coffee flavors. Wonderful.

UPDATED: FEB 28, 2004 Everything a stout should be, nutty and fruity with a burnt taste. Just about perfect.

aracauna (2994) - Georgia, USA - JAN 29, 2004
The stream from the bottle is a cola brown that turns into black in the glass. The head is a nice size, dense, a good medium tan that lasts as a fuzzy film and laces nicely. The aroma is almost spot on. Great coffee and chocolate nose with the java being dominant. Hops are present in the aroma, but more so in the flavor. The flavor doesn't quite live up to the aromas promise being a little overwhelmed by the hops. Still an excellent stout.
