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.

Muggus69 (1609) - Yarram, Vic, AUSTRALIA - JUN 4, 2015
650mL bottle from Slowbeer. Good looking stout - thick opaque black body, holds a firm espresso-esque head. Rich nose - dark chocolate, espresso, toasted oats/biscuity maltiness, some fragrant spicy hops in there too. Itís a lovely smooth, silky ride on the body, full without being overtly rich, nice drying roast astringency. Not overly complex, but what is there is well done - bitter chocolate, rich nutty malts, espresso coffee, touch of earthy hop spice. Firm bitterness, lingering dried leafy hop character. Very good!

On tap at the brewery. Pours black with a beige head. Aroma of roasted malts, chocolate and light coffee, some pale malts, dough, and light bitterness. Flavor the same. Average texture. A solid stout.

Murphy (1759) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - AUG 14, 2002
Didnít quite live up to the expectataions. Very dark but not very burnt or heavy in palete. Strong alcohol and chocolate notes. A good stout, donít get me wrong, but it just didnít seem to have that complex of a taste to it. Maybe I need to try it again.

3fourths (8696) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JUN 26, 2003
UPDATED: SEP 26, 2012 Nitro pour at Pelican in June 2003
Black. This thing takes forever to warm to correct drinking temperature... I had to have a couple inbetween ordering it and tasting it. Very creamy and chocolate aroma. Smoked wood and fried fruit. Very carbonated, rich cofee and smoked wood profile. Like drinking semi-sweet chocolate. Excellent texture.

Bottle rating is lower: around a 3.7-3.8

davesarman (159) - Waconia, Minnesota, USA - MAY 7, 2004
Rosty malt aroma. Dry. Decent carbonation. Dark mocha head form, but bubbles are big and it dissipates quickly. Nearly opaque black in color. Definite roasted malt profile, but hops are also very pronounced in this beer. A bigger hop profile than I would have expected. A dry stout with a west coast hop approach. Not an Imperial Stout, but not bad either.

YourDarkLord (1800) - Urbana, Illinois, USA - MAY 26, 2004
Sixteen beers tasted this night and so many of them fell into the category of looking good, smelling good, but not tasing as good. This was one. Jet black with a dark tan head was visually appealing. The nose was coffee, semi-sweet chocolate, molasses, fruit. Complex and satisfying. Full bodied, creamy mouthfeel. But the taste was mediocre. All those good essences seemed to result in an unremarkable, average stout flavor. Good but certainly not exceptional.
