Very good stout. Beautiful black appearance with a light tan medium head. Decent coffee, chocolate aroma. Taste was kinda plain, but great at the same time. A little vanilla, roasted coffee flavors. Better than expected.

Lumpy (1802) - Carrollton, Texas, USA - JUL 5, 2004
Bottle. Dark body with a thin beige head. Nose is very sweet and malty. Flavor is roasted malt, hops, caramel, coffee, and a little prune. There is a stronger hop presence than I was expecting. There is a good balance between carbonation and flavor. The mouthfeel is very clean for a stout IMO. The finish is dry and just a little rough on the tongue. I beleive this is a well done stout and it is very enjoyable. Would be a good beer to have with a sandwich.

KarmanGhia (276) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - JUN 29, 2004
UPDATED: MAR 16, 2005 Really, this just seems to be a fruity/hoppy stout. It is dry with cherries or plumbs in the beginning and a little bitterness afterward. It is different from a lot of other stouts in the hops. All of the other flavors are mild. Certainly, there’s some chocolate and coffee going on.

eboats (1082) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - JUN 29, 2004
UPDATED: JUL 1, 2006 Dark with a medium tan head that clings to the glass. Has some roast and some coffee with a good amount of bitterness. Re-rate: Poured black with a brown head. Aroma is chocolate with coffee and roasted notes. Flavor is heavily chocolate with coffee and roasted notes complimenting. Creamy mouthfeel with a rich milk chocolate.

Pours very dark, ruby highlights, big tan head. Roasty aroma, some coffee and some hops. Roasted malt flavor, dry coffee, some PNW hops lend some bitterness. Rich and dry, medium to full body. Nothing to really set it apart from the others, but very well made and quite enjoyable.
