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.

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).

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.

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.

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

ToadMan (559) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - JUL 24, 2002
Has a nice head and dark appearance. Not at all smooth for a stout, and a little more bitter than I like my stouts. rerate: still not one of my favorites, very hopy for a stout, but has a certain creamy roastedness that I enjoyed.
