Pours completely black with a small brown head. The aroma is roasted coffee, but also a hint of berries. The mouthfeel is very nice and creamy, and still manages a high carbonation. Taste of coffee, caramel and some dark chocolate. Nice for chocolate desserts or maybe as accompanment for coffee.

piscator34 (2261) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - JUN 28, 2006
Black in colour with lower than average carbonation. Aromas of Vienna roast coffee, milk chocolate, and spicy hops. Strong caramel aspects come out in the mouth, along with darker chocolate and more coffee. Heavy bodied, with a long sweet finish. A nice after dinner pint.

bitbucket (2164) - Kirkland, Washington, USA - JUN 27, 2006
UPDATED: JUN 30, 2006 Bottled. Pours an almost opaque brownish black with garnet highlights, and a tiny bit of tan surface froth. Aroma of chocolate, smoke, and a prune or two. Full creamy body with just a bit of carbonation. The taste is sweet, with coffee, dark chocolate, prunes, coffee, roasty molasses malt, and a bittersweet espresso finish. If there was ever a SWEET stout, this is it. Not quite sweet enough to use as syrup on your pancakes, but close.

RoyceH (1198) - Hesperange, LUXEMBOURG - JUN 26, 2006
Very nice ale indeed! Aroma creamy, dark chocolate, malt. Black, small tan head. Rich, plenty of cream flavour, malty on the palate, not much else. Very very nice drinker, a little too rich, though, alcohol disguised well.

bubbleflubber (2134) - Asheville, North Carolina, USA - JUN 23, 2006
Opaque pour with almost no head (tan bubbles only). The nose is of dark chocolate. Flavors are roasted smokiness with coffee, and a thin roasted espresso finish. There are some intermingling dark chocolate hues. It goes very well with breakfast, and won’t let down.

UPDATED: AUG 8, 2006 Dark brown,small filmy head, smells of sweet bread and choc. Taste is..... good but seems to have fizzed out a bit. If it were more fresh I know that the chocolate cream tones would have opened up more. I’ll try again.... and again

Bottle. What a great, very satisfying stout! Very sweet aroma, pours a very dark chocolate color with a thin head that stays. Looks great. Very creamy with smooth aftertaste. Definite chocolate tones surround this ale. This is very good and very satisfying. Goes great with food or as an after dinner drink. Awesome!!! Cheers!

Appearance...BLACK!!! Sweet, coffeeish, malty aroma. Flavor was sweet malty and of coffee. To me this had the qualities of both dry stout and sweet stout.. kinda reminded me of Guinness, but also kinda reminded me of Mackeson’s. WONDERFUL STOUT!
