whaleman (2178) - North Wales, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 23, 2003
UPDATED: OCT 26, 2003 Thick pour, frothy gravity-defying brown head and black body with murky brown edges. Aroma of dark chocolate, coffee beans and a burnt nuttiness. Robust flavor of espresso plus hints of chocolate and char. Nice medium hop bitterness. Warm, lingering aftertaste. A manly stout.

loweredsixth (946) - Clovis, California, USA - OCT 18, 2003
Dark brown with a small (quickly diminishing) light brown head. The aroma was somewhat fruity...maybe vegetables...sweet, with dark chocolate. The flavor was more on the roasty side with a strong coffee aftertaste. The feel was a little too thin, but refreshingly crisp on the tongue.

lemonlovr (190) - Orland Park, Illinois, USA - OCT 13, 2003
Aroma is earthy but not too strong and is dominated by chocolate and coffee although something seemed off. Appearance is dark dark brown. Flavor is smokey with a roasted malt aftertaste. Overall effect seems a bit thin.

3fourths (7976) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - OCT 13, 2003
Black with a dark tan head. Aroma of wet vegetables, smoke, and roasted chocolate malts. Very smokey, muddy, and earthy. Wet dog and clay aroma ruins it.

   AROMA 7/10   APPEARANCE 4/5   TASTE 7/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 13/20
Nuffield (3667) - Roseville, Minnesota, USA - OCT 12, 2003
Deep stout aroma--malty, chocolatey, but there is an edge to it that marks it out as potentially unpleasant in the tasting. A Rogue-clone? There is something like Porta-potty chemicals there, too. The palate is moderately carbonated and yet slightly weak. Classic flavors but again that aggressive edge that detracts from the overall enjoyment. Nice color and suitably opaque body.

JohnC (3000) - Mission Viejo, California, USA - SEP 25, 2003
Appearance: This Wyoming beauty pours black with a frothy brown head. Aroma: The nose is roasty, with a definite smell of bittersweet chocolate. Flavor: It has a medium mouthfeel with an almost oily texture. The finish is dry. This is a straight ahead, dry stout. It's very nicely done.

   AROMA 8/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 7/10   PALATE 4/5   OVERALL 15/20
BBB63 (6010) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - SEP 4, 2003
Nearly opaque black with frothy tan head, minimal lace. Aroma hinted of burnt malts, molasses, bittersweet chocolate, butterscotch, toffee, and coffee. Taste has bittersweet twang and burnt malt presence. Undertones of berry, smoke and coffee. Dry finish. Medium to full-bodied with an oily and lively mouthfeel. A very nice straight forward dry stout. Flavors and aroma open up nicely when warming.

aobecksy (700) - Middle of no where, Ohio, USA - SEP 1, 2003
UPDATED: AUG 11, 2007 Frothy lacing looks like it should be at starbucks, roasted creaminess is very satisfiying. Great cure for the cobwebs left by drinking too many others over the weekend. I think I have ultraspank to thank. Rerate: a six pack hand delivered from a Wyoming archeological dig (as well as many others!) They travel well and even better in my luggage to an off campus teaching expediation of my own. Very nice company in all aspects.

   AROMA 6/10   APPEARANCE 4/5   TASTE 6/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 13/20
JPDIPSO (4956) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 28, 2003
Nearly opaque balck with a glimpse of garmet on the edges. Dark heavy head of tan bubbles. Sweet roasted malt, light chocolate and hint of vegetable. Sweet dark chocolate start that turns to a bitter acidic amelgomation of goo. The hops flavors are to sweet and don't seem to meld well with the dark malts.

temporrari (381) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - AUG 26, 2003
Quite good. Better be for $10.99 a sixer! A little hard to find. I'll buy it again though, if I can find it. Excellent representation of what a stout should taste like.
