Incredible stout--lots of body and a great hop presence. The chocolate malts come through strong and are very pleasant. A little coffee too. I would love to drink more of this great, thick and rich stout.

Strong on the hops for a Stout, flavours of chocolate , bitter, and coffee .Prefer the Sam Smith, but this is a good choice too.

I have always thought this beer to be overrated. Itís a decent stout with a great aroma, itís just not that easy to drink. A tad to hoppy of a stout for my tastes.

Nothing special here. Simple, bitter stout with an aroma and flavor dominated by roasted barley. Not very complex, not very flavorful, and not very memorable.

Iím going off memory here. Not one of my favorite stouts. Bitter and not as sweet when compared to my favorite, Sam Smiths Imperial Stout.

This beer rocks. The aroma is of toasted malt, dark chocolate, espresso and alcohol. Itís pitch black with a small, creamy, light brown head with excellent lacing. The flavor is moderately bitter (dark chocolate) and a touch sour. Not sweet at all. The mouthfeel is medium dry... as is the finish. Very fizzy. Interesting and delicious stout. I want another right now.

Black and thick. Darkest head I think Iíve ever seen. Nice roasted malts. Coffee, Chocolate, roasted cereals. Nice hoppiness in the finish. Bitter. Very nice. Something I could drink pretty often.

The great aroma and dark color of this beer made me very excited to take a sip, but when I did, I was not as impressed as I thought I would be. It is a great stout, but itís a little on the bitter side. However, the pack I bought may have been old (it was on the beer distributors shelf collecting dust), so that may be a factor in this review. Not nearly as good as Victory Storm King Imperial Stout, or Samuel Smith Oatmeal Stout, but still very good. Better than guinness anyway.

UPDATED: MAY 3, 2003 This is the most intense sweet stout I've ever tried. The color was somehow darker than black! Nice chewy stout with a heavy hops kick. WOW!
