Tmoney99 (10660) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUN 19, 2007
Bottle from Party Town. Poured a black color with a large frothy brown head that lasted and produced good lacing. Good roasted malt and dark fruit aroma. Full body with a smooth sticky texture. Complex roasted stout flavor with a medium bittersweet smooth finish of moderate duration. Very well balanced stout.

12-oz. bottle received via trade with drmatt. Pours dark brown with a small, frothy, light brown head, somewhat diminishing, fair lacing. Aroma is average malt (cookie, caramel, toast), average hops (perfume), average yeast (leather) with notes of alcohol and brown sugar. Medium bodied, mineral texture, average carbonation and a bitter finish. Average duration, light sweetness, moderate acidity and bitterness.

hopscotch (9161) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - JUN 18, 2007
Bottle... Pours very dark and sits almost black in the glass with a mid-sized, creamy, khaki head. Good retention. Coffee, cola and vanilla notes comprise the nose. Surprisingly, I didn’t pick up on any chocolate or cocoa. The flavor is a combination of rich, sweet goodies and ends up tasting like a heavily toasted campfire marshmallow. The alcohol is very well-disguised. Medium-bodied with a milky mouthfeel and feather-soft carbonation. Bitter-sweet, well-roasted finish. Many kudos to vyvvy for providing me with this excellent stout! Imperial though?

daknole (9101) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - MAR 1, 2009
bottle from acknud. Almost a black pour wtih a small off white head. Aroma is full of chocolate, roasted malt and some faint coffee notes. Flavor is much sweeter and richer than I would have ever expected. Irish style stout? Not really. Flavor has some raisins, chocolate, prunes, roasted malt and an odd sweetness.

Tap @ Schlafly St. Louis. Pours a brown appearance with a light brown head. Anise, dark fruity, anise, Belgian chocolate aroma. Somewhat roasty, a touch burnt, dark chocolate flavor. Not my favorite.
