A black hole that lets small amounts of deep purple seep out. Beautifully fresh aroma of nuts and fruits. Creamy nuts and chocolate fill the palate and linger. What an amazing brew!

Definately one of the best stouts Iíve tried. Creamy and with a really long lasting palate. Glad I found it.

Sour creamy coffee aroma.To me this ale has the complexity of a stout and a fine chocolaty dopple bock.The finish is oaky mellow with a touch of mild hops.Another great beer Ive overlooked.

All I can say is wow. It loses a little bit for the alcohol in the nose, and the palate isnít as rich as it could be, but Iím really searching for nits to pick. This is just a fantastic beer.

Frank (2868) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - NOV 23, 2002
Very nice dark color. Almost opaque black, maybe a hint of red. Thick brown head that leaves lines of lace with each sip. Roast malt flavor with sweet chocolate and alcohol overtones. Nice hops in the nose. Overall, a very full and well-balanced beer.

This was a solid brew. The roasted coffee flavor & alcohol was nicley balanced with the hops and malt. You can just taste the alcohol, I wish this were a 10% I imagine it would have been better if it were in a dark bottle.... But still a good buy...

re-rate - o.k. i may have been a bit naive, this is a fine and quality IPS, but it holds no candle to some others of the style.......original: thee undisputed king of stouts! (in my book, at least, so far,) truly exceptional.
