lagermonkey (725) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - MAY 10, 2005
Pours pitch black with a huge deep brown head. Some lace but not alot. Smells of chocolate and cappucino. Taste is overwhelmingly of dark chocolate. And bitter coffee as you might expect. But there is another dimension to this beer and thatís the sweet milkiness that reminds you of a milk stout. Mixed with the chocolate/coffee bitterness, the creaminess lends a bittersweet quality to this brew. Again, a creamy mouthfeel with a nice bitter finish. But still very smooth. Really luscious and easy to drink. Fantastic stout.

Smells like sweet chocolate with a full tan head. The chocolate is strong and slightly bittersweet but quite excellent. Even reminds me faintly of chocolate milk.

#100 Pitch black with a nice creamy/brown head. Great chocolate and coffee flavors. If I was rich and could afford sitting around all day....this would be my choice of drink

Black as pitch with a brown head. Bitter unsweetened chocolate flavors and burnt coffee. Very tasty not as sweet as the young double chocolate.

auerbrau (3203) - Ithaca, New York, USA - MAY 6, 2005
Deep tar black pour, with brown even head. Salty and sweet aroma of coffee. Decent lacing. Sharp dry dark chocolate aftertaste, with a burnt sugar finish. Overtones of smoke, light chipotle. Light brandy plum alcohol notes. A little bit too bitter on the back end for my palate. A little basalmic quality. Vinous. Clean finish.

Newbie (25) - Denver, North Carolina, USA - MAY 5, 2005
Smells of chocolate and coffee. Has a bitter aftertaste. The texture is watery compared to most sweet stouts.

Ughsmash (7508) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 3, 2005
Opaque black pour with about 1/4" head that dissipates after about a minute. Smell is distinctively chocolate, with hints of coffee. Mouthfeel is very smooth. Flavor was predominantly dark or bakerís chocolate, with hints of coffee and toffee. Alcohol was absent from the taste. This makes for an excellent dessert-type treat!

erway (1004) - Albuquerque, New Mexico, USA - MAY 3, 2005
Pours ebony with an off-white head. Aroma of chocolate, grassy hops, and coffee. The body is slightly lighter than I like. Flavor of dark chocolate, and slight coffee but I was expecting this to be more rich. Fairly dry bitterness. Tasty and enjoyable but I was expecting more.

thehinge (292) - Wilmington, Delaware, USA - APR 29, 2005
Pours black as night with a dark beige head. Lacing hung on for a good while. Aroma has chocolate and roasted malt hints. Taste is of chocolate in the front end and just a little hops and alcohol on the finish. An excellent sweet stout.
