RichardGretton (4653) - Leicestershire, ENGLAND - MAY 7, 2005
Bottled. Light head with a full bodied appearance. The flavour is bitter, quite malty and slightly fruity. The flavour is very dry, strongly alcoholic with only hints of chocolate and coffee. Overall a reasonable stout.

georgekillian (344) - Alabama, USA - MAY 4, 2005
pretty good for a stout, but i’m not much of a stout fan so i have to rate this one low and a little worse than a guiness extra stout. very heavy creamy flavor with a rough bodied aftertaste

Belgo (154) - Køge, DENMARK - MAY 1, 2005
Pours black as the darkest night with a nice cappucinocoloured head. Head retention is medium to good. The aroma is dominated by roasted coffee and hoppy notes, with the Cascade showing through. On the palate this is medium to full-bodied with a good -but not dominating - bitterness. A very good, very american interpretation of a classic European beer style.

thegreenrooster (4031) - St.louis, Missouri, USA - APR 29, 2005
Pour is a deep black with no head. Aroma is chocolate malts with a roasty backbone. Flavor is a very bitter coffee with a touch of hops. Bitterness stands out but in a good way. A nice effort by a good brewer.

madcow75 (426) - Sun Prairie, Wisconsin, USA - APR 22, 2005
Dark brown/black with thin tan head. Little lacing left. Weak earthy coffee aroma. Bitter coffee taste, creamy mouthfeel. Definite bitter finish that lasts on the tongue. This is a decent stout especially for the price.

frankenkitty (2007) - Oak Lawn, Illinois, USA - APR 20, 2005
A rocky, tan head capped a dark, dark brown, chalky body. Aromas started sweetly malted, then mouthwatering scents of citrus hops emerged with deep roasted undertones. Dark roasted coffee flavor (enjoyably to the point of being burnt). Bitter finish with a creamy mouthfeel. Very good.

MIBRomeo (2570) - Wisconsin, USA - APR 18, 2005
aged 1.5yrs by dave p. big initial aroma of roasted malts, carmel, & coffee & bitter chocolate. Pours a dark black w/ a nice tan head and carb bubbles on the glass. Pallate is light and carbonated. Flavor is bitter heavily burnt/roasted malt subdued hops and a smoky finish. Overall a solid stout but a bit weak in the palate and a little to smoky for me.

UPDATED: OCT 1, 2007 Bottle shared per DavidP. This bottle was aged a couple of years. Aroma: smokey, coffee, chocolate, roasted malts. Appearance: thick dark brown/black. Thin watery white head with bubbles around the glass. So-so lacing. Flavor: smooth sweetness, a little smokiness on the flavor and palate. Roasted grain flavors. This beer ages well. The taste is surprisingly light given how thick this beer is. Palate: smooth, not lingering at all. Overall, try aging this one and give it a try. 7, 4, 8, 4, 15 = 3.8

Rerate: Pours to a black body with an airy bread dough looking foamy, frothy, tan head. Nice lacing. The aroma is chocolate and cola. The flavor is chocolate, anise, licorice, sweet bready malts. The palate is roasty, medium bodied, with noticeable carbonation. 7, 4, 7, 3, 13 = 3.4
