Medium sized light brown head, decent retention and lace. Main body is black with red highlights at the edges. Faint roast and coffee nose. Med/full body. Medium sweet malt flavors, good roast, hints of fruit and black malt also. Medium sweet finish.

Dark brown in color. The head is brown. The smell should be roasted, but comes across kinda rotten. The flavor is tangy, and makes me cringe. Coffee.

Black and bubbly like cola, nose of metal, compost, old milk, and antifreeze. Seriously, the aroma is just screaming at me not to drink this stuff. The flavor isn't as bad, some old coffee with a pleasant finish.

Just not my stout of preference. Not finding it creamy. Full bodied, maybe. And it just seems lacking direction - not too chocolatey, not too roasty, not too hoppy. And not that any stout NEEDS to be TOO much of anything, but it just is kinda there, but NOT there at the same time.

Bottled. Poured a translucent black with a mustard-yellow head. Pretty bad, in that the finish was just too abrasive - enough so to ruin the beer.

brownaler (378) - Topsail Beach, North Carolina, USA - MAR 9, 2004
A good beer, but I expect more from a stout. The finish is very astringent.

CaptainCougar (7129) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - JAN 22, 2004
Pours a rich dark brown with a thin tan head. Sweet roasted malt aroma with a hint of milk chocolate. Body starts sugary sweet, goes through a carmely transition, and finishes with a warming, robust roasted coffee presence. I don't see what the problem with this is. It's a very drinkable and smooth beer that has a nice flavor to it.

Not my favorite from Arnold. The fault in this stout is that its too easy to drink. Its like the "Lawnmower" of stouts. Stout in Houston is about as useful as a snow shovel. Key word here: subtle. Subtle chocolate, coffee and roasty flavor.

A little bland and sour. nothing jumps out right away, it smells like old wet leaves in a mulch pile. A good attempt nun the less.

Nuffield (3666) - Roseville, Minnesota, USA - JAN 29, 2003
I enjoyed this one, warts and all. The appearance was cola-like with a moderate but quickly dissipating head. The flavor was strongly roasted and chocolately at first taste, then easily drinkable. The palate was oily yet watery, thin yet mildly coating--contraditions, I know. Not a brilliant stout, perhaps, but a drinkable concoction.
