hotstuff (4874) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - JUN 3, 2003
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.

UPDATED: AUG 21, 2003 Dark brown to black in color with a creamy beige lasting head. Aroma is hoppy, some roasted malt with notes of choclate (sweetness). Roasted malt flavor. Loved the hops in this beer.

Schroppfy (2360) - Łódż, Warsaw, Poland; Michigan, Ohio, USA - MAY 15, 2003
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.

jstu9 (402) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 10, 2003
(bottle) A nicely solid, pretty flavorful stout. I was thinking this was more flavorful than a normal stout.

HopsOrDie (687) - New Lenox, Illinois, USA - MAY 8, 2003

CaptainCougar (7133) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - MAY 6, 2003
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.

Cobra (1100) - - MAY 4, 2003
Another great beer from SN. Highly roasted flavor, with plenty of hops backbone. Decent head, mostly black color to it. Makes a very good session beer.

jskendzel (602) - Washington DC, USA - APR 28, 2003
Very dark with a sweet, malty nose. Taste is bitter, deriving from both some dark/roasted malts and from hops.

ElGaucho (2393) - Minnetonka, Minnesota, USA - APR 13, 2003
Rich, roasted malt aroma; alcohol comes through in the nose despite being only 5.8%. Opaque body with large, rocky, tan head, which is mostly lasting. Excellent lacing. Rich and dry with notes of oak and chalk. A little dry for an imperial stout. Unlike most other SN beers I've had, I couldn't identify the signature SN finish in this one. A little dry for my tastes and not as enjoyable as their porter. Nevertheless, tasty and solid.
