Another great big coffee-like stout. Initial flavor is wonderfully intense, but seems to mellow as it is drunk. A rather thin palate for the amount of flavor.

Great roasted barley aroma. Midnight black color and tan head. Big toasted and roasted flavor. Very well balanced with a long finish. An excellent standard stout.

dark dark but not completely black, gets point for a nice dark foam. Ended up inhaling some trying the get the aroma. We'll file that under too much carbonation. Roast malt flavor with a slight coffee flavor. I like the flavor but i think the carbonation brings it down compaired to most stouts

UPDATED: FEB 6, 2004 opaque body with a light brown head. coffee and roasted aroma. Tasted roasted, bitter, and creamy. With a good strong carbonation with a bitter ending. I like it a lot.

ultraspank (867) - Alverca, Lisboa, PORTUGAL - MAR 29, 2003
Rich roasted nose of chocolate, medicine, caramel, oats, and flowers. The brew pours a dirty motor oil black. The solid brown creamy head is fully lasting with good lacing. The bittersweet chocolaty flavor is excellent with a light acidity and a long bitter full finish. The chewy body is syrupy and soft, the finish feels clean. Outstanding.

Black,thick brown head. Roasted malt alcohol nose. Dry roasted chocolate malt flavor. Chewy

CaptainCougar (7129) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - JAN 10, 2003
Pours like thick motor oil. Strong roasted coffee bean aroma and flavor. The body is lightly carbonated and malty. It has a dry moderately bitter finish. Enjoyable, but average for its style.

Nate (3636) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 5, 2003
Nice aroma, particularly smoky, dark fruits, alcohol, but slight metallic tang. Nice dark black beer with brown foamy head that dissipated quickly. Medium oily body and medium-light carb. Metallic tang - copper. Smoky and meaty, dark roasted malts with a little bitterness and sourness. A decent stout.

dukefan (214) - Dallas, Texas, USA - JAN 3, 2003
Chewy, roasty, full bodied the way a stout should taste. It perfectly balances roasty malts, with complementary hops, and a slight chocolatey flavor to an excellent (almost benchmark) stout.

MaxPower (961) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - NOV 25, 2002
Jet black color, nice clingy head, smells of chocolate, much too sweet unbalanced.
