Hoppier than I'm used to in most stouts, but nothing offensive to me. Not very sweet but everything seems to be well-balanced. Good brew overall.

Black in color,creamy tan head that has a lot of staying power.Malty,hoppy aroma.Bitter sweet taste,malty,coffee tones and a mild hopping presence as well.The alcohol actually comes through on this one.Nothing harsh but you can definately tell that it is there in the taste the after taste is malty coffeeish and well hopped.Kind of a medium feel in the mouth.pretty decent brew but not something i would enjoy drinking in large amounts.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: JUN 4, 2003 This brew poured a medium head of brown bubbles and a opaque black body. It has a strong malt aroma that is very pleasant to the nose. The flavor is that of coffee and just a hint of chocolate. It has a good lacing and starts off with a slight bitter sensation that smoothens in its finish. This brew goes down very easily and is very drinkable. It is one of the better stouts on the market.

This stout poured a large tan head with fine-small bubbles. The lacing was fair. The body was very dark. It had a smooth coffee taste to it which I enjoyed very much. It also had a good coffee aroma to it. This is a stout that I could drink more than of one on any given day.

Good, solid stout; mostly bitter components, very little in the way of sweetness or choc. malt that I can tell. Hops were surprisingly unapparent. Imbibed illegally in Tampa airport, waiting for a flight. Fun! A session stout; a bit thin and dryish.

(bottle) A nicely solid, pretty flavorful stout. I was thinking this was more flavorful than a normal stout.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Rich dark brown color with a mildly hoppy roasted aroma. Smooth robust body with good malt and hop balance. A pretty good stout, but nothing very special.
