omhper (18949) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - FEB 9, 2007
Bottled (from 1997, sampled 2000 and 2004). Black, no head. Very full bodied. Roasty coffe taste. Oily mouthfeel. Crude, but flavourful and interesting.

This beer was actually called ’Molasses Coffee Stout’. It was from the second round of Long Shot beers - in two years (1996 and 1997) Boston Beer Company produced beers from homebrew recipes. This was from the second year. This was the only one from that year I actually had (the other two that I unfortunately missed included an ESB called Longshot Special English Ale and a Bock called Longshot Bock). From what I recall, I enjoyed it quite a bit. It was black with a medium-dark head. The aroma had typical burnt smells including coffee and dark chocolate. But I do remember a distinct caramel and molasses note to the aroma. And to the flavor. The mouthfeel was very full and thick. The flavor was bitter coffee stout by not dry thanks to the sweet caramel and molasses flavors.

sampled in September 2000 - deep black colour, few head, fine coffee aroma, smooth, sweet molasses flavor following by a explosion of mocha - quite original

Hazmatt (363) - Virginia, USA - AUG 14, 2005
UPDATED: NOV 17, 2006 One of 3 beers brewed for Longshot by Boston Beer Co. I, unlike many posts I’ve seen, happened to enjoy this beer. Nice appearance and great aroma, it was extremely sweet, almost overbearing hazelnut coffee flavor at first but after a few sips, went down smooth with roasted molasses notes; being as sweet as it was you couldn’t drink a lot of these but 1 or 2 was a treat.

NERAX' 03 Past BBC submissions to NERAX have either been great or at the very least interesting.This was a former homebrew recipe, if you ask me it should have stayed in the carboy,never to see the light of day,not to mention my mouth.

Volgon (2763) - Manchester, New Hampshire, USA - MAY 5, 2003
NERAX '03: This beer wins the dreaded Volgon Worst Beer At Show award. Ruby/black color with a thin head. Stale sweet cardboard aroma and taste. I have no idea why the Boston Beer company thought that bringing this to a festival was a good idea.
