A pleasant-enough beer, but smelled and tasted more like a good lager. Little roasted malt, jsut a touch of sweetness. Thin with lively carbonation and a slightly bitter aftertaste. Certainly, smooth. Not displeasing, but also nothing to distinguish it.

ElGaucho (2272) - Minnetonka, Minnesota, USA - JUL 2, 2005
Rich, roasted malt aroma; sweet, with chocolate notes. Almost fully opaque body. Off white to almost light tan head. Mostly diminishing. Excellent lace. Roasted malt flavor. Quite a bite in the finish. Very nice. Very drinkable with no shortage of flavor.

Creamy head melts into foamy mounds. Tar black with a touch of caramel around the rim. The aroma is cocoa and sweet chocolate, with little to no roastiness. Loads of carbonation in the body - drinks almost like a cola at first. Easy boy! More sweetness in the body, coupled with a touch of bitterness. This stout is headed in the right direction, but could use more of everything (except carbonation!)

Dark reddish brown with little head. Toasted malt and coffee aroma with a little toffee. Medium bodied with a quick finish. Moderate roast and coffee flavor. Little hop flavor.

Thanks to beer handy for this. I had this after a Boulevard Dry Stout and a few oyster crackers, and the Boulevard Stout is better than this by 0.3-0.5. This one pours black with ruby edges and a big off-white head. Aroma of dark malt, chocoff, cabernet. Tastes roasty malty, with chocoff and some fruitiness in the finish. Somewhat light in palate and not a pinnacle of complexity, but very good.

Pours Obsidian with amber highlights and a light tan head. The foam was funky smelling (Horsy) but as it faded the aroma of Coffee and dark malts are evident. I thought the taste was typical Roasted barley ,bitter dark grains, Hops in the middle none in the finish. What I found most disappointing was the lack of “oatmeal” character… you know the oiliness or creamy mouthfeel that can be achieved with this adjunct.

jgentgesdo (679) - Tulsa, Oklahoma, USA - JAN 6, 2005
Pours a dark brown color with medium tan head. Nose is malty and chocolate. Flavor is sweet, smoky, coffee and caramel with dark fruit overtones. This beer finishes clear and clean, although the smoky aftertaste lasts. Excellent.

chriso (7475) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 27, 2004
Bottled, post DC gathering. Red/brown colour. Not that dark. Dry, roast malt aroma. Vague chocolate and a touch of licorice on the palate. Slightly thin mouthfeel. Decent, but not too rich and not too inspiring.

No real head on this beer. Taste is average at best. Slightly disapointed by this brew.
