Dark, dark in color, small head that stayed around the rim of the glass. Aroma is extrememly roasty, slighty chocolaty. Taste is similar, full of roasted flavors and a hint of sweetness with the chocolate and the toffee flavors associated with stouts. Nice.

I am sampling this beer while i am waiting for the wort to boil on my very first homebrew. A 1 pt 6 oz bottle purchased at Westside Discount Licquor, St. Cloud, MN. Poors black with a lovely tan head1.25 fingers hig that is just staying there. Definately smelling malt and roasted mocha. First sip. You lip passes through the head with just a lite tickel, and then, Strong chocolate malt, coffee, more chocolate and then a slightly bitter finish that leaves your mouth just dry enough to beg for the next sip. Simply exquisite!

had all the elements in a classic stout, Esppresso notes coffee and roasted malts. A great beer for a session. Not the most Complex stout but overall enjoyable. I imagine it would be another thing altogether on tap!

UPDATED: DEC 19, 2006 Coffee and burnt chocolate flavor are there in full force, as well as some malt notes. Pretty complex and hoppier than most stouts.

I have a new favorite stout. Dark off white head, small. Pours a pure black with just a hint of brown. A review won’t do the mix of flavors justice. Starts with a strong coffee with a smokey malt. Hints of chocolate and earth mix mid way through. The finish is smooth and rather short. Thinner than some stoudts, but that doesn’t take anything away from this quintessential stoudt.

GoldenSpunky (120) - Rochester, New York, USA - JAN 5, 2005
Excellent aroma of malty caramel and chocolate chunks. The taste satisfies with a smokey flavor of chocolately hops and barley. Prunes, molasses, and chicory smoked coffee beans delight the senses. Good Stout with a smooth finish. Worth a TRY!
