Not as good as Bell’s Expedition, but I was impressed with it’s color, creamy head and full chocolate-coffee flavor. Not bad...

TheBeerGod (5506) - Newport News, Virginia, USA - MAY 6, 2004
Pours a rich black body with a medium frothy brown head. Nose is coffee, hops, roasted malt, and dark chocolate. Taste is sweeter than I expected. The coffee and hops are still there but there is more of a chocolate and sweetened malt taste lurking in the background. Definite roasted malt as well. The finish is only slightly bitter. Very rich mouthfeel. Very good beer!

UPDATED: AUG 25, 2011 Solidly done but I am not much of a fan of dry stouts. +++ Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer pours a thick black color with a medium sized brown head. The aroma is dry hops and light roasted malts. The flavor is dry stout - malty with some floral hops. A decent hint of chocolate. Solid.

CapFlu (4733) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 27, 2004
(Bottle) Pours a huge, brown head and an opaque body. Nose of cocoa and some hops. Flavour is a full and sweet chocolate - something I like alot. Good texture and oiliness. Very good!

bottle, pours an opaque black with very small tan head that dissipates fast. Aroma of roasted malt with hints of chocolate. Nice smooth mouthfeel. Dark chocolate start with some hop bitterness. Nice roasty middle with a very pleasant burnt bitter to finish. A delicious beer.

Less coffee more chocolate with fruit flavour. Me and mates prefer ales. But I have rated it according to its style, which it is superior in its category. Good aftertaste.

Kinz (3470) - Glen Allen, Virginia, USA - APR 25, 2004
Draft. Deep black, thin veneer of a head lasted nicely. Chocolate nose, smooth like a malted shake. Palate is full, roasty, and chocolate, with a hint of spruce hops on the finish. Nice stuff.

michaeltrego (101) - Amherst, New Hampshire, USA - APR 21, 2004
Respectable stout - though not as remarkable as I have heard about - very nice body and appearance - sultry darkness - flavor was robust and roasty - the conditioning was a bit off so that might be throwing things off for me

DocLock (8423) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 19, 2004
Pours obsidian black, with a good head and lacing. Aromas of malt, caramel, coffee, and some hops. Tastes very complex, with hints of coffee, caramel, malt, some hops, and chocolate. Nice dense mouthfeel and a very complex, crisp, rewarding finish. Very nice stout.

Good example of the style. Very dark color, medium brown frothy head. Everything a good stout needs...
