COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A full-bodied beer with deep chocolate color, velvety malt texture, and a dark-roasted flavor, with hints of smokiness and coffee. It combines the dryness of traditional Dublin-style stout with the strength and character of Imperial Stout.

Bottle of the Limited Release for 2003-2004. Black color with a brown head. Very smooth with espresso and lots of chocolate. Dry coffee beans dominate the middle part of the flavor. Thanks to Tim for bringing this down from Portland.

From the bottle, this is one of the three best stouts Iíve had. Dense head. Beer is black as night. Flavor is nutty/coffee. Good aftertaste, not the best. If you can get it on tap, itís absolutely wonderful.

Draght - Pours black with a dense brown head. Aroma of coffee with citrus and fruit. Flavors are coffee and roasted malts with a bitter finish. It is a velvety smooth beer that leaves lots of lace in the glass

Beer pours opaque with a retained dark tan colored head. Aroma is very roasty/nutty with coffee and hops. Flavor is cold coffee and tons of roasted flavors, some smoke and more coffee. Palate is very smooth. No rough edges. Very easy to drink, flavorful beverage.

ElGaucho (2256) - Minnetonka, Minnesota, USA - FEB 13, 2005
Wonderful, rich, sweet, chocolatety, hoppy aroma. Completely opaque body, light brown head that is mostly diminishing. Very nice sporadic lace. This is a very good beer. A wave of dark chocolate rushes to the back of the tongue. This is one of the better stouts I have had. A few more % of alcohol and this would be awesome. Exceptionally well made. Thanks, Slikwily!

SG (465) - Valley Center, California, USA - FEB 13, 2005
On tap at the brewpub. Nice opaque hue. An extremely drinkable and balanced stout with a smooth mouthfeel. Mild roasted, coffee, and chocolate flavors. A quality stout you could actually session.

DrunkenWeasel (224) - Portland, Oregon, USA - FEB 5, 2005
Purs very dark brown with a light deep tan head that disapears rapidly. Smells of smoke and roasted coffee and a slight astringent alcohol smell as well. Almost no lacing is left behind on the glass. Slightly bitter in taste but sweetens out towards the end leaving a very nice aftertaste. Coffee taste is very prevelant, leaves a slight warming sensation in the belly.

A nice rich stout. Black with a dark brown creamy head. Nice chocolate malts with hints of smoke and coffee. Flavour is full, rich creamy, with nice cocoa flavouring. Ends nice and dry. A nice stout.
