Black. Quite sweet and malty with a dry and hoppy finish. Loads of chocolate in the aroma and in the flavour.

Tasted heavy of hops. one of the more bitter stouts ive sampled (not that thats a bad thing). very malt aroma. dark red woody looking color. overall though, id say the flavor lacks somewhat in complexity. good nonetheless but certainly not one of my favorites.

Beautiful stout. This is, essentially, a Sierra Nevada Pale Ale Stout. Does that make sense? I can taste the famous Sierra Nevada Pale Ale in this stout...only it is a stout. Quite good. Quite delicious. Well worth trying. Beautiful and delicious.

skortila (4505) - Baarn, NETHERLANDS - OCT 28, 2003
aroma consists of rye, sweet malts and strawberries. Great smell! Black coloured with a red glow. Offwhite brown head. Taste is not as impressive as its aroma. Taste consits of rye, sweet malts and is more bitter towards the end. Siruppy texture. Bitter palate.

jerohen (1995) - Bussum, NETHERLANDS - OCT 28, 2003
Ink-black coloured, large head. Aroma and flavour of rye, malts, some sweetness and some undefinable fruit. Lasting bitter finish.

Very dark color, short brown frothy head. Aroma is bready, licorice, roasted malts, rye, strawberry. Taste is roasted malts, bready. Sirupy texture. Watery palate, with a rye taste in the back of the throat, slight alcohol burn.

Not too bad if not exciting. Bitter at the start as it warmed the coffe and chocalte was noticable. Much better when this happened. Not my faveorite but nice. I wish it was a little creamier.

"dude you cant see through this shit" -yoc while looking at it in the light.. it has a coffee chocolate flavour which is a little too sweet for my taste. large haed which overflowed onto my friend's counter while pouring. PARTY FOUL!@

flemdawg (531) - Naples, Florida, USA - OCT 23, 2003
Little bit of head floating atop a red/black body. Sweet chocolate, and malts in the aroma. Malts, yet hops at the same time in the flavor. Some subtle chocolates too. Bitter finish.

thehoff (596) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - OCT 20, 2003
Thick black, red highlights. No head at all. Smells like sweet hops. This is a very hoppy stout. A little sweetness and maybe a little chocolate are dulled by the hoppiness of the beer. Not very good.
