A good stout that falls a bit short in comparison to Victory and Sam Smiths. However, pours very dark with a tan head. Impressive. More coffee-like than chocolate, and a little too bitter for my tastes. Not as rich as advertised!

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 isn’t 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.

Enniskillen (2045) - Salinas, California, USA - OCT 1, 2004
Chocolate, espresso, and cigar aroma. Heavy chocolate taste to it. Pretty filling and nice. Decent stout.

Bottle: Dark brown-black, small beige head. Aroma of burnt coffee and chocolate. Taste is bitter, heavy malty and hoppy distinct stout characteristics.

(bottle) black is black...i want my baby back....aroma like hazelnut coffee... a toasty hop flavor, but nothing spectacular. i don’t find this very drinkable or very exciting in any way. i won’t be getting this again, but i was still able to drink it down.
