UPDATED: FEB 25, 2005 Very dark black color, big reddish brown head. Aroma has roasted barley, chocolate, and a hint of vanillla. Strong flavor of rich roasted malts, slightly bitter in the finish. Pretty smooth overall. I liked it.

A very good stout. Super dark color with a long lasting tan head. Roasted aroma, and some sweetness as well. The taste was more roasty and sweet as well. The malts had an apperance, and it finished a bit bitter. Really ran the gauntlet of flavors and passed through like a champ.

brownaler (378) - Topsail Beach, North Carolina, USA - SEP 18, 2003
Forms a small dark tan head with the expected black appearence. Has a lovely nutty taste at the front and a roasted toffee flavor in the back. A nice, comforting beer for Isabel.

UPDATED: DEC 18, 2004 dark chocolately head, creamy chocolate aroma, the chocolate coffee taste comes through in a gushupon the first sip. The mouthfeel is not smooth,its heavily carbonateddry and bitter aftertaste. Tasted better as it warmed

Beer pours (in Chimay Glass) a thick black liquid that light can not penetrate with dark caramel colored head that dissipates quickly to near nothing but a thin film of head. Aroma is a bastardly sickening hop and alcohol mixture. Flavor is a nauseating, disgusting hop overpowering a faint coffee. I hear great things about Rogue, but the more I try, the more disappointing they are. This one is almost as bad as Rogue Chocolate Stout. Still, both are deemed undrinkable drainpours by this rater. There is nothing to enjoy in this beer besides the stench and revulsion of hops. Other beers have more to offer than just overpowering hops. Sampled at 72 degrees Fahrenheit.

whaleman (2178) - North Wales, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 2, 2003
Pitch black with a velvety brown head. Strong chocolate aroma, spicy, dark-roasted black coffee, and charcoal notes. Flavor develops slowly but very well with a nice smooth coffee-like bitterness. A strong, bitter, and enjoyable stout.

22 oz. One of my favorites. Pours black with a coffee colored head. I can taste chocolate, coffee tones, with a clean hop presence. I like the taste it leaves on the palete too. I like it with steak.

Great shi...schtuff. it has a rich, wonderful full taste that goes far above and beyond the huge pool of average stouts. when you have this, you immediately think "wow, this is gwood stuff!" Nice bitter aftertaste as well.
