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.

IndianaRed (2501) - Boise, Idaho, USA - JUL 29, 2004
UPDATED: NOV 28, 2004 Bottle Pours a black with a modest dark tan head that settles into thick sticky lacing. Aroma is stron Molassas, nutty, coffee and bittersweet chocolate. Bittersmokey molassas is at the front, with a charcoal aftertaste that is quite bitter. Less sweet than most of its type. Feel is moderatley thick and very smooth. Nice but the harsh bitter trailer puts me off a bit.

Had this with KBJAMES. A very good northwest Stout to be sure. Pours as black as you can get, motor oil is often used I think. Head is dark tan. Great lacing. Nose is heavy on roast with deep hop fruitness just behind it. Attack is filled with deep roast flavors (coffee, dark chacolate), and the crisp fruitiness of the hops. The finish is long and gentle, multitudes of subtle roast/yeast/hop flavors dance on the pallete throughout... Excellent beer start to finish.

MAP (1133) - Lakewood, Ohio, USA - MAR 17, 2004
Deep dark black color and a thick dark head that thins out in color and size. Nice strong chocolate smell, and and some smoked coffee feeling to it as well. Mouthfeel is a somewhat oilyand has a good presence. Overall smoked chocolately flavor and a good hearty aftertaste. Goes down easily, and leaves with a small bitterness that makes you want another one.

I'm ticked. I just wrote one of my most detailed reviews a few hours ago and then I deleted it. Forgive me for slighting on this review as I'm doing it completely from memory. Poured about as black as any beer I've seen with a tan head and minimal lacing. Tastes great and *very* complex. Not as hoppy as most Stouts but not out of balance at all. Coffee, toffee, a bit of citrus as well as some fruits like apricots. Mouthfeel was good and had a nice subtle mineral moutfeel to it. Drinkability was great as this was one of the better Stouts I've had. I'm kicking myself for not getting a few more of these from Liquid Solutions while I was there. This is well worth seeking out.

It was the Great Mastertrader Sham that supplied me with this stout! My buddy Sham must really enjoy Mastertrading, I think he Mastertrads whenever his women goes out of town. He’s also a damn nice guy, Thanks for the beer Sham!

Release: 2003-2004
Pours as black as the night in the jungles of Borneo with a fluffy toffee colored head of foam. The nose introduces notes of toffee, raisins, mocha, and cappuccino. The flavor is VERY toasty! Highly kilned chocolate malts, oily French Pressed coffee to no end, a bitter / sweet shock to the palate on the first sip! Rather smoky and chocolaty…. Large suggestions of oak and even some bourbon like submissions. Probably the most black coffee resemblance I have ever had packed into a beer, and I like it!
The palate is phenomenal, Creamy as chocolate moose… and that’s GOOD Stuff!

Nexxus (261) - Apple Valley, Minnesota, USA - FEB 24, 2004
2002-2003: Opaque dark brown - almost no light escapes from this beer - with a large frothy khaki head. Amazing aroma of roast, chocolate, espresso, molasses, berry and soy. Somewhat woody and musty. Medium slightly creamy body with soft carbonation. Intense roast flavor with vanilla, cocoa, smoke, and espresso with a small berry note in the finish. Excellent. Another big thanks to Slikwily for sending me this one!

2003-04: Black with a brown head. Aroma of roasted malt, chocolate and a little fruit. Flavor starts our fruity and finishes with coffee and smokiness.

Suttree (5186) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - FEB 14, 2004
UPDATED: FEB 16, 2004 Very Black, with a thin brown head. Aroma of coffee and burnt toast. Intense coffee flavors, with a hint of chocolate, but the palate is the real attention getter. This is rich and smooth, with a mellow hop bite. Very drinkable, especially for a beer this rich.
