Holy vicar in a tutu, this is a tasty brew. Pours out black (no, really, BLACK) and a slight handsome tan head. Bitter, chocolatey, coffee, roasty. Not complex but why the hell would it need to be? Brilliant, delicious stout.

Very good stout. Darker than a black hole and ten times better than Guiness. Smooth, stout, bitter taste. Great, dark head. Really an excellent beer.

UPDATED: AUG 15, 2003 I'd just barely take this one above Rogue's Chocolate Stout as the flavor and aroma are slightly more complex.
Rerate 8/14/03. I've had this one on tap and from the bottle several times since my original rating and I just can't justify a 4.7 for this one anymore. The problems: never rounds out completely as it warms (55 - 65 degrees F), head is very soda like, carbonation is too fizzy for this beer.

Black with a head almost as dark. Some sediment lingering at the bottom. Big aroma and flavor of roasted malt and chocolate. Fairly hoppy as well. One mother of a stout.

Beautiful thick copper head. Dark black color. Little aroma. A very nice looking stout. Delivered a roasty, hopped, somewhat sweet flavor with a slight maltiness. Chocolate and coffe were present as well. Finished with a nice choloaty taste. Very good.

Dark body and head. Malty, oat aroma. Light sweetness, as well as an oat flavor, some chocolate and roastedness. Plenty of hops also.

Once again, the aroma was quite cascady (citrus/grapefruit) coupled with the roasty malts. The flavour was, firstly nicely chocolatey and roasty, but i think the hops ruined it too early, i like my stouts more roasty than this. Quite a shame, because this has some lovely malts, ruined too early by the hops.

UPDATED: JUL 10, 2003 Poured out of 22 oz. bottle, bought at Beverages & More liquor store in Orange, 6/23/03. Mostly tight head, creamy espresso brown, lingers moderately long for a sweet stout; deep, dark body, almost completely black, with excellent lacing and an overall very bold look. Nose of dark roasted malts with a little hint of chocolate but not much sweetness. Initial taste is strong, bitterly hoppy and of burnt roasted malts; a little overwhelming, but still enticing-- I could literally feel my mouth swell up with water. Very creamy texture, extremely smooth going down after the initial taste. Dark, unsweetened chocolate undertaste, almost sour at first, and then the character of the roast opens up broadly to a nice, frothy chocolate malt flavor. I almost don't want to take another gulp, because the aftertaste is so nice. Very fine stout, but not quite as good as Sam Smith's Oatmeal.

This beer is almost too good for me. Real strong taste, very thick, the kind of beer I need to ease into.
