Nice, very dark color with a bit of head. Smelled of hops more than anything, but not in an overly hoppy way, if that makes sense. Some light malts and chocolate in the nose as well. As for the taste, bitter taste that turned more sourish as it warmed, though, again, not in a bad way. Quite light on the palate, hints of chocolate and bitter coffee coming through with a light sweetness as well. The finish was remarkably clean. An interesting stout, to say the least.

Hopgeek (90) - San Diego, California, USA - OCT 7, 2004
Dark black cola-like color and makes a nice foamy tan head. Aroma is loaded with rich roasted malts. Flavor is spicy, roasted and chocolatey. Palate is medium bodied and nicely balanced. Good stuff, highly enjoyable.

Chocolate, coffee, and great smelling, but bittah. Which isnít a bad thing. But definitely bitter.

harlequinn (2744) - Tacoma, Washington, USA - OCT 2, 2004
A decent stout, a little too carbonated for my taste, but not over the top. Makes a great argument for session stouts, some nice choclate and coffee flavors are present, with a nice hoppy bite in their as well.

Draft. Nearly opaque, very deep brownish black. Mini light brown head. Whereís the flavor? All I get out of this is a mild toastiness. Underwhelming from one of the most overrated brewers out there. Didnít get better as it warmed.
