VTHopHead (1511) - Barre, Vermont, USA - MAY 30, 2004
UPDATED: JUN 27, 2004 Bottle - Very dark with a very thin tan head with decent lacing. Roasted barley is very strong in both the aroma and flavor. Less than the typical amount of coffee. There are several layers of hop flavor and bitterness, but it is not overpowering at all. Hop bitterness lingers. A very good effort. Enjoyable.

Thick, dark appearence with a roasty smell. Hints of coffee, with a thick, roasted taste. Lingering coffee aftertaste. Very good - I'd buy it again.

Dark black, maybe a tinge of red. Nose is stouty, roasty with some chocolate. No real coffee bitterness in the flavor, all chocolate and sweet.

jeffc666 (1984) - Fairfax, Virginia, USA - APR 18, 2004
Opaque black body with a medium tan head. Sweet roasted malt and a touch of chocolate on the nose. Flavor is kind of a let down after the aroma. Roasted malt and chocolate with some residual sweetness. Medium body. Not bad.

willblake (2654) - Bel Air, Maryland, USA - APR 12, 2004
Bottle. Pours dark as can be with a big head and wafting aromas of roasted malts, charcoal, and dark chocolate. Palate is thinner, but coating and bitter. Very nice coffee notes in flavor with prune, licorice, tar. Quick finish is bitter and dry. Nice beer.

Slick (1969) - Thief River Falls, Minnesota, USA - MAR 28, 2004
Nice black color,small brown head that lasted for a nice amount of time leaving a pretty decent lace.The aroma was Roasty and chocolatey with a mild coffee side maybe some dark dried fruit as well.Very dark flavor of coffee and dark bakers chocolate with some fruit and a decent hop presence coming through.Nice bitter finish of espresso,one very nice brew that maybe could use a little more in the body but overall does very nicely the way it is.Well worth having a few more around for later.Thanks got to Jpdipso for this fine brew.

Terminus (3283) - Las Cruces, New Mexico, USA - MAR 23, 2004
12 oz bottle-pours pitch black with a HUGE relentless head, kinda like alpha klaus. nice burnt/roasty aroma. palate was very nice-reminds me of Bells stout, but just not quite as smooth. nice burnt coffee/expresso/smokey flavors going on. Definately one of Wyoming's best offerings.

bsour (78) - Boise, Idaho, USA - MAR 14, 2004
Nice and strong burnt malt aroma with just a hint of alcohol. Black in color with a very thin film of medium-brown head. Good lacing. Powerful roasted malt and coffee flavors. Good rendition of what a stout should be.

Ringo (963) - Loveland, Colorado, USA - JAN 14, 2004
A fine example of an American stout. Looks perfect in a dimple mug, very, very dark with a nice dark brown head. Good aroma leads to a good taste and a nice creamy mouthfeel.
