Sammy (11175) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 18, 2005
I found it a competent stout compared to what I had before in the style, and just a better than average brew. Syrupy, some sourness, not watery but not a full mouthfeel either

flutetokill (523) - Fresno, California, USA - JUN 9, 2005
Very dark brownish black color with a medium brown head. Very rich, roasty chocolate aroma and flavors. Slightly dry, bitter finish. Not very complex, but very tasty!

heemer77 (5294) - Urbandale, Iowa, USA - JUN 9, 2005
From a trade with Kevin. The head is light brown. The body is black as possible. The aroma is roasted nuts and oak. There is also a strong chocolate note. The smooth and creamy mouthfeel is complemented with dark chocolate. The finish has a strong roasted note. It is slightly dry at the end. Nicely balanced.

OhioDad (2492) - Hilliard, Ohio, USA - JUN 3, 2005
Boittle 12oz - Pours black with a 1/4 inch creamy tan head. Aroma is chocolate and coffee and a touch roasted. Flavor is semi-sweet chocolate and coffee. Somewhat creamy yet a watery on the palate. This is a decent drink but not an outstanding stout.

1FastSTi (3360) - Glendale, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 1, 2005
Poured to a a dark black body with a thick beige head that has excellent lacing. The head never fully disapates. The aroma is very chocolatey and roasted barley. There’s also an angel food cake aroma. Not very complex, however. The flavor is very dry and roasty. Espresso and semi-sweet chocolate chips with a touch of grass hops. The palate is creamy and has medium-thick mouthfeel but is too chalky.

Bottle. Black color with a dark brown head that quickly laced. A big roasted coffee aroma with a chocolate backbone. A dry roasted semi-sweet flavor with a lingering chocolate and milk aftertaste.
