Really smooth stout flavor with a hint of smoke on the back end. Sweeter than you would expect without being sweet at all (if that makes sense).

As far as stouts go, this is one of the better I have had. Roasted malt flavor with some bitterness to the finish.

1pt 6oz bottle. pours a deep black colour with a nice rocky head.Taste is deep chocolate and mocha notes with a long, hoppy finish. Over all a complex and delicious stout.

Pours motor-oil black with chocolate mousse-like foamy head. Lots of lacing left on glass. Surprising whiff of hops up front. Wasn’t expecting that, but the aroma hops mingle nicely with the deep, earthy aromas of roasted coffee, chocolate, and tobacco. The beer is thick and full on the palate. Moderately bitter with some suggestion of chocolate. Not sweet at all. In fact the stout is very dry. The finish is long and dry with flavors of coffee and spent cigar. This is a very classy brew that’s not too good to befriend store-bought chocolate-chip cookies!

BeanDip (117) - Florida, USA - OCT 10, 2003
Opaque with a rich brown head. Aroma is very nice blend of those very stouty things like chocolate, coffee, fruit/prune, roasted malt. Can smell the hops right up front too. I can't believe this baby has 69 IBUs - sure doesn't taste like it. Coffee and roasted malt dominate the taste. Ashiness - dirt like quality. Sweet. Hops appear at the end, but not in an overpowering way. The aroma really stands out on this beer for me.

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

A good heavy stout, with a nice appearance, could have bean a little more complex in the taste. But a very good beer.

Very pleasantly surprised. Beautiful head, very full taste. Rates with my favorite regular stouts (Brooklyn Chocolate & Storm King). Am at this moment sipping a Rogue Chocolate Stout, which, in comparison, is thin and less complex.
