COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION

Thick dark and a nice brown head. Smells of bread, apples and licorice. Oily resins coat the mouth holding in some of the bittersweet flavor. Initial tangyness is ovrpowered by a somkey ending. I am not a big stout guy, but this beer is really interesting as it seems to become more compelling with each sip.

Opaque, very dark brown color, with a tan head, that left no lacing and quickly diminished. Had a creamy, roasted/coffee flavor. I heard from a friend that this was an oatmeal stout, I wasn't able to tell?

UPDATED: JUL 8, 2003 Ebony color with a small chocolate brown head. Nice lace. Light sweet roasted malt aroma. Flavor starts light bitter chocolate , the finish is bitter and dry with a lingering hint of coffee in the aftertaste.

Holy vicar in a tutu, this is a tasty brew. Pours out black (no, really, BLACK) and a slight handsome tan head. Bitter, chocolatey, coffee, roasty. Not complex but why the hell would it need to be? Brilliant, delicious stout.

Very good stout. Darker than a black hole and ten times better than Guiness. Smooth, stout, bitter taste. Great, dark head. Really an excellent beer.

wunderbier (1434) - Tampere, FINLAND - JUL 3, 2003
UPDATED: AUG 15, 2003 I'd just barely take this one above Rogue's Chocolate Stout as the flavor and aroma are slightly more complex.
Rerate 8/14/03. I've had this one on tap and from the bottle several times since my original rating and I just can't justify a 4.7 for this one anymore. The problems: never rounds out completely as it warms (55 - 65 degrees F), head is very soda like, carbonation is too fizzy for this beer.

IPFreely (1470) - Sanborn, New York, USA - JUL 2, 2003
Black with a head almost as dark. Some sediment lingering at the bottom. Big aroma and flavor of roasted malt and chocolate. Fairly hoppy as well. One mother of a stout.

DrinkingbuddyD (129) - Warsaw, New York, USA - JUN 29, 2003
Beautiful thick copper head. Dark black color. Little aroma. A very nice looking stout. Delivered a roasty, hopped, somewhat sweet flavor with a slight maltiness. Chocolate and coffe were present as well. Finished with a nice choloaty taste. Very good.

frylock (1135) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - JUN 29, 2003
Dark body and head. Malty, oat aroma. Light sweetness, as well as an oat flavor, some chocolate and roastedness. Plenty of hops also.
