A black beer with a nice brown head. The aroma is sweet roasted, while the flavor is sweet roasted combined with notes of wood, prunes and chocolate.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Stout Night!!! Starting with this beer courtesy of JPDIPSO. Lots of coffee flavor, bitter, malty, well balanced beer. Smooth and drinkable, black like volcanic glass, this is a solid Stout. A little thin but excellent in the mixture.

bottle-purchased at woodmans in Madison, WI-pours a deep brown hue witha small off-white head. looks more like a porter than a stout. butterscotch and coffee aroma-flavors of burnt coffee, roast and char-very burnt tasting. light body and thin palate detract from the overall rating of this beer. A good session stout for those cold winters in Northern WI.

Sweet cherry cola type of aroma, sharp cherry chocolatefirst taste, very sweet malt aftertaste, not very smooth. Seemed more like a sweet stout. Would buy it again

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: DEC 2, 2004 Pitch black ale with a small, fizzy, dark brown head. The nose is of rich, creamy, milk chocolate, cashew, hazelnut, coconut and buttermilk. Well-balanced with lots of burnt notes in the flavor. Medium-bodied with a watery mouthfeel and lively carbonation. Fairly short, roasty, lightly sweet finish. Thanks to robertsreality for the bottle.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a dark dark brown, almost black. No head. Aroma is light choclate and roasted coffee. Favor is like watered down coffee. Sweet, toffy dark choclate, and licorice. Palate is a little thin for my taste in style, but over all fine brew.

Very foamy but lasting tan head sits above a dark fizzy beer. Rather average stout. Had one on special - 2 bucks a bottle at the ritzy gay bartender hotel pub.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from BBB63: Quite the foamer, exploded out of the glass and onto the floor. Nose was full of coffee, dark roasted. hints of anice and vanilla, quite a complex stout! Oaky and woody towards the finish. It is light, though, but I think the big tastes just make me expect it to be thicker bodied. I wish most of it wouldn’t have overflowed!!!

3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Very dark black with a thin tan head. Aroma is fresh cut grass, vanilla beans and a touch of coffee with cream in it. The taste is fairly full. A nice dry character with some coffee, grass and cinnamon. Strange feeling at the back of the mouth. It is hard to place, but something like a flat cola? Smells great, but the taste let me down.
