Part of the haul my parents came back from premier gourmet with. This beer is opaque black with a foamy tan head. The aroma is mostly of roasted malt. The flavour is like roasted coffee beans with traces of coacoa as the beer warmed. Iím not a huge fan of roasted stouts, I like the bitter espresso chocolate better, but this was good.

Maybe Stouts arenít SNís strong suite. This guy doesnít live up to the potenial that their IPA does. Still it is a good solid stout, just not great. Nose is very pleasant, lots of roast and coffee elements. Attack is a bit weak and comes off a bit watery/thin to me. A mild stout by west coast standards IMO. Finish well as expected.

This is a pretty good stout but nothing too special in my mind. Lots of raostiness with good dark flavors. Overall a decent beer

Pours a rich black color with a tan head resting on top. Aroma is very roasty with notes of coffee and chocolate, with mild hop spice. Flavor is very smooth, sweet, roasted, and grassy. Very nice stuff, for sure!

When Morrison sang, " Well, I woke up this morning and I had myself a beer..." this is was the dead fuck was crooning about. Smooth, dark, and rich... this brew can replace any steak íní eggs breakfast and set you up for whatever you have to face that day. Good shit.

roder60 (1289) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 28, 2004
Jet black in color with minimal light tan/white head. Aroma smells a little hoppy and roasty but nothing overpowering. On first sip not what I had expected. Its good, but not as much of a full bodied flavor as I had hoped for. Rather, more a refreshing roasted chocolate flavor with some hop finish to it. Overall, a pretty good stout.

jcc83 (137) - Athens, Georgia, USA - AUG 27, 2004
Poured a red-tinged black with a moderate tan head. Aroma was toasty and bready, with a noteable hoppyness. The flavor was full and strong, dominated by a strong roasted ness and a nice hop bitterness in the finish. Very smoky and roasty. Good stuff.

Ungstrup (34215) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - AUG 25, 2004
A pitch black beer with a chocolate brown head. The aroma is sweet with notes of roasted bread and chocolate. The flavor is lovely: sweet malty with loads of roasted malt, chocolate, and coffee.

A good strong stout with heavy dark roasted grain flavor. Has most of the characteristics of an Imperial. Nicely balanced with hops. Iíll return to this one!
