3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Beautiful dark color with hazy brown/amber lace. Mild aroma. Extremely smooth and drinkable, alcohol not noticed until the end. Taste is very sweet and a little roasty. Very good dry stout, one of the best I've had.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
Fairly dark pour, brown head. Interesting roast aroma backed by this grapefruit like aroma, earthy undertones. Semi-dry flavor, light smoke/toast/fruit on the finish. On the thin side. Very solid stout.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: JUN 8, 2003 Black with a nice, persisting head this stout has a syrupy sweet roasted malt aroma and the flavor of roast coffee. A bitter hop finish balances the maltiness quite well Somewhat reminiscent of the BridgePort Black Strap Stout. 6-03 Rerate--just as good. Deep molasses and macadam notes.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
A beautiful stout with a long lasting, dark creamy head. More average in flavour. Pleasantly roasty with strong coffee tones. Average bitterness for a stout. Decent but not memorable.

Very nice stout, my second favorite beer at this brewery, malt, coffee, chocolate, all the flavors a stout should have, and a nice sweetness to it What a nice beer.
