’mellow’ chocolate aftertaste? No way! Tons of chocolate at the finish, and that’s what makes it stand out for me. Would be great for desert, but I can’t imagine drinking it with anything else. I prefer the Mackeson Triple, which is similar, with less chocolate.

For a stout it has an oddly hoppy aroma. Dark with chocolate head that quickly disappears. A great array of flavors. The various malts and hops creates a delightful blend. It might look like a stout but tastes more like an IPA. A complex and challenging beer.

this is one of my favorite stouts pours black with a tan head that disipates after a little. the initial taste is a little sweet and chocolaty and the after taste is bitter and coffe like. the cascade hop comes through keeping it in balance. a great stout for those who like stouts.

Had this at Ashley’s in Ann Arbor, Michigan - wonderful beer selection! This stout has a remarkable color, deep and shiny dark with interesting highlights if you hold it up to the light. Beautiful head, too. The taste, though, is too sharp and dry for me - less creamy balance than I like in my stouts and a touch more coffee taste than is good for this coffe phobic woman.

Served cold, tastes better warm. Very full in flavor and dark in taste. This is an awesome stout! Worth every penny, every time.

UPDATED: JUN 25, 2004 A good stout. Nice chocolate/coffee bitterness. Large dark brown lasting head with moderate lacing. One to try again.

Smell sense of the aroma actually turns to the taste sense without even taking the first sip. You can taste the chocolate bitterness without letting it hit your taste buds. Somewhat smokey with a clear sense of cocoa or coffee in the closing. Excellent creamy head and best served with a nicely seared lamb chop!

Kind of a disappointment, but I had very high expectations. Head similar to that of a root beer float, dark and frothy. Sweet roasted nose, slightly acidic taste. As it warmed, it took on sort of a roasted pale ale taste...hops made a nice appearance in the end. Simon (girlfriends dog) REALLY liked this beer. He went apeshit when I took it from him.

A decent stout. It had a nice flavor but the finish was a lil too overbearing of coffee.
