Very, very dark. Thick, toasted marshmellow head. Smokey, coffee aroma. Smooth drinking, creamy malt flavor with a nice bitter finish. Bravo!

Lizabeth (360) - east falmouth, Massachusetts, USA - JAN 7, 2004
Dark brown with a tan head. The flavors of chocolate, coffee and multigrain toast weakly comes through the blisteringly strong hops. Needs more balance boys.

Dorwart (2496) - Robbinsville, New Jersey, USA - JAN 6, 2004
Great big brown head which settles very slowly but fun to watch. Aroma is not as strong as I would have expected. Roasted grains, a hint of coffee and dark chocolate. Color is black with a hint of red/orange in front of a very strong light. Very smooth flavor with more roasted grains and coffee. Hops presence there also and is very prominent in the finish. Dry and bitter aftertaste. Quite the nice finish. A very good stout. Not as much character as some of the other stouts out there but still quite good.

SpringsLicker (3380) - Tennessee, USA - JAN 2, 2004
This is the most complex and over the top of Rogue's regular Stouts. Just a little more of everything. Not for the novice Stout drinker or initiate to the style.

Deep black pour with a nice creamy tan head. Aroma full of some hoppyness and roasted flavors. Very smooth taste...dark chocolate and coffee dominate. Nice and easy to drink. A very good Stout to say the least. Bought this 22oz bottle at Total Wine in Manssas, VA.

Linc (739) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - JAN 1, 2004
Annoyingly over-hopped, some roasty flavours can be tasted through the onslaught of cascades, but not much... fizzy finish.

YourDarkLord (1800) - Urbana, Illinois, USA - DEC 31, 2003
Black body topped with an ample tan head. Complex aroma with coffee and chocolate and, perhaps, licorice. Full, robust feel in the mouth. Flavor had just the right bitterness and an espresso touch. Excellent beer.

Toasted, woody nose; opaque black color; large tan head. Relatively quick roasted malt front end with a nice coffee bitterness at the end. Fairly dry (which I liked). Solid stout.

kathouse (1506) - Nevada, USA - DEC 25, 2003
Easily could be considered a "hop heads" stout, this beer makes a statement from the moment it's poured. The beer is thick and oily with a dark brown head. Light coffee and chocolate aromas are masked by the Cascade hops. Body was exceptionally light for the style with moderate carbonation. It was not rich or creamy, instead it was simply pleasing. The finish was only modestly dry with a bitter finish that diminished quickly. It is a shame that there were no other flavors to describe. The hop bitterness and aroma was too great. A true disappointment.

jet black. had this on cask at fatheads in pittsburgh. very delicious and inoffensive beer could win over most 'only guiness' types. very rich and roasty. earns respect gracefully rather than beating it out of you
