40 weight color. Muddy looking irredescent head subsides forming a slick on top. Rich chocolate malt, anise, burnt toast crumbs, and coffee aromas with wafts of berries. Semi-sweet chocolate start attemps to mask a mildly astringent sensation on the tongue. Medium palate funnels down to a some what watery bitter finish with baker’s chocolate lingering.

Subdued chocolate aroma. No sweetness. Bitter, even burnt flavor. Nasty acidic notes. Poor stout.

Really nice stout. Lots of chocolate and coffee flavors and aromas. Nice yet not overpowering. I would definitely try it again.

Hopistotle420 (1178) - Amherst, Massachusetts, USA - NOV 6, 2002
UPDATED: MAY 20, 2003 Opaque deep black. Thick dark tan head that hangs around throughout the whole glass. Coffee/mocha aroma, roasted grain, slight floral accents. Oh so smooth....Quiet first, medium to full bodied, chocolate and roasted grain, and awesome hopped out bitter finish. This is an excellent sweet stout, one of the best ive ever had. WooHoo!

Had on nitro from stout faucet. Thick brown head. Oh man this is good. Gets better as it warms. Big coffee/chocolate taste. Finish is bitter chocolate. A damn fine stout. Guinness step aside, there’s a bad boy in town....
