UPDATED: FEB 10, 2004 Very very good! I love the smell and the taste is creamy, bitter (in a good way) and overall pleasant. Destined to become one my my favorites.

A good stout, on the dry side, with a nice look and feel. I like SNís pale ale, porter, and stout...they got me through the 80ís.

This is a beer at war with itself, the powerful hop action having seized the high ground and blasting away at the roasted and sweeter malt forces lurking beneath. Iím lest as a conscientious objector.

Indra (2626) - Overland Park, Kansas, USA - AUG 25, 2002
Roasty malt aroma. So red-brown as to be nearly black. Average head and carbonation. Flavor has a goodly amount of toffee/caramel malt sweetness, then some chocolate and lightly bitter, spicy hops. Somewhat dry finish, body is medium. Overall quite hoppy for a stout, but tasty. Like most stouts, I found this to be best at about 56-58 degrees F, certainly not ice cold (unless youíre trying to kill the taste, that is).

Dickinsonbeer (5077) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - AUG 21, 2002
Not as dark as some stouts. If held up to the light there are some mahogany highlights around the edges. Nice roasted and chocolate malty flavors with lots of hops to balance it out- typical of SN. Nice clean aftertaste.

hopscotch (9228) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - AUG 19, 2002
This beer rocks. Otherwise black as midnight,this stout is a beautiful dark crimson when held up to the desert sun. The nose is of espresso and cocoa. Flavor is very creamy and hearty, much like a mocha latte with kick. The finish is dry, crisp and clean. Not sweet. Ecellent stout.

Another big roasty stout with just enough coffee to keep in from getting my highest marks, but just enough good stout body for appreciation.

Philosopher99 (24) - arnold, Maryland, USA - AUG 8, 2002
my tastes are moving towards stouts, and this is one of the first iíve had. I really liked it at first, but it seemed to get really harsh as it sat and got warmer.

Coal black, firm tan head. Huge hop nose. Full bodied, rich roasted malt flavor. Hoppy finish; extremely drinkable

Iím feeling chocolate and coffee. I agree with Brew4Dug. When itís colder, itís better.
