y0cola (361) - fremont, California, USA - OCT 16, 2003
UPDATED: OCT 26, 2003 Pretty dark body with a tall thick head. Smells of coffee and tastes of coffee and a nice bitter after taste. Wasn't too vast in flavors but impressed me nonetheless

brewblackhole (1588) - Muskego, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 14, 2003
Nice chocolate malt aroma, smooth dark chocolate taste, slight bitter coffee aftertaste, very very good beer, but it had a limpness to it that the best don't have

I like stouts, but didn't care for this one at all. Too hopped up with nothing much else going on.

BeanDip (117) - Florida, USA - OCT 10, 2003
Pretty typical stout appearance. Not quite opaque. Light brown, creamy head, somewhat rocky as it diminished head. Not much on the lacing. Good rich aroma of chocolate and roasted malt. Slight sweet and chocolatey taste. Roasted malt. Nicely hopped. Very nicely balanced. Great beer!

baobubba (455) - Starkville, Mississippi, USA - OCT 7, 2003
Quite dark brown in appearance with a thin ring of fine-dark-khaki bubbles. Strong roasted malt aroma even when on the cold side. Mostly molasses with accents of coffee and chocolate and hints of fruit and earth. Soy comes out on the swirl. Smooth body. Sweet with a nice bitterness on the finish of burnt malt. Burnt stuff and licorice linger. A fine example of a stout.

snoot (286) - Anaheim, California, USA - OCT 6, 2003
Pours a deep black with a big dense tan head. Hoppy and roasty aroma. Bitter chocoalte and burnt coffee flavors, along with the hops. I liked their porter much more.

aaronh (201) - McMurray, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 30, 2003
This beer is virtually black and pours with a dense, rocky head that is a bit lighter than wet sand. It displays very good retention and leaves a nice lacing on the glass. The aroma is very fruity, with a strong Cascade-type grapefruit hop smell and a touch of malty chocolate. The first sip reveals noticeable hop bittering, followed by some roasted coffee and a touch of chocolate. A bit of grainess is noticeable as well. Later sips reveal more plum/raisin fruits and the accompanying sweetness. The finish is rather clean, and is punctuated by some good hop bitterness. The aftertaste is a bit of coffee, a bit of chocolate, and a touch of citrus. With a creamy mouthfeel and good drinkability, this is a very solid stout.

This is a good representation of what a standard stout should taste like. nothing real fancy about it.

BierBauch (784) - Cape Coral Waterfront Wonderland, Florida, USA - SEP 21, 2003
I don't know, I just didn't get that much from this beer. Do they need to put cascade in everything they brew? Maybe it's their trademark, I don't know. Looks good, dark with a decent head. Aroma is predominantly cascade and roasted malt. Mouthfeel is ok, but the overall flavor is really lacking in my opinion. Nothing really grabbed me with this one.
