UPDATED: AUG 9, 2004 Dark black with minimal light tan head. Light chocolate aroma. Low medium carbonation, very nice level for this beer. Flavor is well rounded and not overpowering. Medium mouth feel. Overall very good beer. Excelent value.

Nice roasty flavor with some hoppy undertones. Dark body, small head. Tastes gritty and roasted but ends with a hop bitterness. Good Stuff.

Malty chocolate aroma. Bitter chocolate flavor with a very b itter finish. Really hoppy for the style. Beautyful creamy mouthfeel. Far better closer to room temperature

DUbrew (49) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAY 21, 2004
This is a good stout. Too much carbonation at times, and the taste is kindof akin to the burnty flavor of guinness extra stout. But the rest is good, with a great finish and complex flavor not found in nitros.

Nice cuddly stout. Somewhat burned and dark fruits get their fair place. Average.

Thick head to much carbonation. Good bitter flavor but, not as smooth as Guinness.

fly (1461) - austin, Tejas, Texas, USA - MAY 14, 2004
Very nice, thick, dark (duh) stout that was only recently revisited after many years ... and still appreciated. Enough malt to sink your teeth into and hops to play the melody.

JCW (1278) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAY 11, 2004
Dark brown,coffeeish in color with a perfect tan head. Moderately sweet roasted aroma and flavor, balanced. Oily mouthfeel. Finish falls a little short, not dry enough to suit me.

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