A good heavy stout, with a nice appearance, could have bean a little more complex in the taste. But a very good beer.

Very dark brown almost black color with a nice brown head. The taste is smooth with notes of coffee, chocolate and hard roasted malts. Very nice beer.

smells a little like a raspberry truffle, very chocolatey. very creamy and smooth, but perhaps a little too bitter initially. i would like it to be a little chewier; it seems just a little thin. it finishes mellow, a little burnt and earthy. very good beer--one of the bitterest sweet stouts i've had.

Pours opaque brown-black with a tan rocky head. Fairly effervescent for a stout. Sour chocolate aroma. Bitterness is a bit overwhelming at first, but creamy texture imparts a smooth drinkability. Very "chewy" texture. Finish is burnt but pleasant. Thinnish mouthfeel, despite all that's going on. I think a few more ABV % points would make it almost perfect.

Well, It came to me in a bottle that read "Wild Irish Rogue". Apparently this is a different beer. I guess you can only make so many stouts. Regardless, It was very nice. Black/Red with a dark tan head. Suds for the length of the beer, including the gorgeous tall dark tan origin. Very malty, milk chocolate and roasted oat nose. Relatively thin mouth feel. Redeeming in a deep espresso, full sprectrum chocolate. Slight smoke. Malty with earth. Sweet cookie dough lingers as it warms. Raisin, yeast sediment, and citrus. Pleasing.

Bottle: Chocolate,cream,little raisan, plum, yeast. Nice brownish black. Clean, though sediment had settled on bottom. Bakers chocolate, coffee flavor. Creamy, bitter, dry finish. Very good, extremely drinkable.

sour coffee smells. super duper dark. nice brown head that goes byebye. deep dark coffee flavors. all the bubbles seem to make it a tad thin. a lil dry, acidic coffee finish. there's a helluva lot of flavor in here.

UPDATED: MAY 5, 2004 Large brown head mostly diminishing while leaving good lacing. Nose is roasted chocolate malts with a hint of hops and yeast. Front is malty, roasted chocolate malts with a coffe body, sweet and pleasant. A tad bit of hops come through during the exprience and the finish is burnt and sweet. Palate may be a bit on the watery side which reveals some alcohol flavor, perharps the beers biggest weekness. Overall, very good!

Bottled. Solid black, with a big frothy brown head. Big roast coffee taste, almost a hint of burnt toast, and of course, a roasty smell. Good northwesartn hop balance to the roast bitterness, but also some tannins seem present. Finishes with a slight hint of orange and pineapple.

Hmmm. I'd put this one as a dry stout. Certainly not in the same league as their chocolate stout, but very good. It has the body and smoothness of an oatmeal stout. Good boiling hops content.
