This brew is somethin good. A dark brown head with a black body give me something to look forward to. The look gives off the idea that this is a think beer, however it ends up being a little thiner than you may expect. All in all a beer I'd go out and get again for sure!

The first whiff smells like a mixture of dark roasted coffee, burnt toast, and a smoking grill. As I get further down, more complexities like chocolate and grapefruit emerge. Towards the end the hops start asserting themselves more. The appearance is completely opaque black with a dark brown thick head that rapidly rises as the beer is poured. The head leaves brown lacing going down. The taste is that of dark roasted caramel malts, balanced nicely by bitter hops. I just wish it was a tad bit more more hoppy. Nice mothfeel. A bit thin for a stout but very tasty.

Burnt coffee, chocolate aroma. Creamy, sweet, chocolate at first. Roasted coffee, with a well blended slightly bitter aftertaste. This beer is excellent.

UPDATED: JUL 30, 2004 A very nice stout that went down very smooth and ceamy. Lots of roast and carmelization. Very solid brew.

Jet black with a dark chocolate head. Head retention is nice . aroma is of roasted malt, chocolate, and a little acohol is detected. the taste is a near perfect balance of roast chocolate malt and hoppy bitterness. The finish has a little crispness to it. The mouthfeel is smooth and creamy. The alcohol warms nicely. Drinkability is enhanced by the overall smoothness and balance. My new favorite stout.

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.
