Another fine beverage provided by the Iceman and kemster. It poured black with a beige head. The flavor was slightly bitter with some chocolate, coffee, and maybe even a bit of black cherries. A smokey mouthfeel is also there. Overall it was very good

Black as night with a brown head. Lots of chocolate in the aroma, very thick. kinda flat and soapy choclate, while still retaining some thickness to it. I dig it, go snake river.

Beer pours black with a nice tan colored head. Aroma is sweet crea, milk chocolate, and strong coffee. Flavor tilts to the coffee side with some nice roastiness as well. Bit on the thin side palate wise. Good stout.

Smells of bitter chocolate. Pours a medium viscocity. Tastes slightly thin and hoppy. Fairly dry. Smooth, coffee and toffee like elements carry the load.

pours black with a tan head. aroma is rich sweet chocolate and roasted malt. a very nice chocolate note that is very inviting . taste is like dry cocoa and roasted malt that has been salted. enjyable. thick slightly oily mouthfeel .tha combines to make this a smooth drink. good hop level in the finish that brings out some coffee flavors. a nice stout. i look forward to having another.

Thanks to Buck Dich for this. Pours Yaphet Kotto-colored, with a big tan head. Aroma of malt, tons of chocoff, jalapeno oil, soy sauce/olive juice, licorice. Wonderful, intense aroma. Tastes rich, malty, with big chocoff, licorice, soy sauce, that jalapeno taste of Kalamazoo and Founder’s Breakfast Stout, and some scotch. Very smooth, crisp palate. Multi-tiered complexity in aroma and taste. The finish gets dry, but the palate stays dense and complex, with great layers of flavor and texture. Delicious.

This one surprised me on several levels...first from the rich mocha aroma and deep almost-black pour, I expected a very thick, smooth mouthfeel. But it seemed a little thin, a little disappointing, a little watered-down. But then it turned around again as far as the flavor was concerned...nice rich coffee, almost espresso, chocolate, dark rich roasty maltiness, and a pleasant, not overly done, sweet finish. Nice job on this one.

Eyedrinkale (3213) - Astoria, New York, USA - JAN 27, 2005
Poured a rich, almost oil like black with a thin head. Aroma of chocolate malts. Taste isn’t as full bodied as I expected from the pour, but medium none the less. Taste has bittersweet chocolate and espresso flavors. Finishes light, smooth and mellow.
