The bottle poured a virtually black beverage with almost no head at all but what was there was tan. There was almost no lacing as well. The aroma was a complex mixture of caramel and dark chocolate malt with some light earthy yeast and a hint of plum in the background. The body was quite full with a soft carbonation and a slightly dry texture. The flavor started off slightly bitter and was quite consistent throughout. The finish was long and had a nice light alcohol warmth to it.

beautiful bottle. poured a beautiful dark brown/mahogany color. very little head, sadly. exquisite oatmeal/vanilla nose. tastes of roasted barely, oatmeal, and a little vanilla in the aftertaste. well put together. overall, a great purchase for anyone who enjoys a flavorful stout.

500ml bottle courtesy of Walleye in a recent trade. wonderful aroma of toasted oatmeal. dark brown with a ruby edge but virtually no head. flavor is of roasty, toasty caramel malt, oatmeal, hints of molasses and chocolate and a very nice hop bitterness. very enjoyable stout, thanks Jim.

A nice cream stout. the bottle is pretty cool, almost like a hair tonic or somthing.....cool anyways. pours a nice head that stays with it. nice whifts of roasted,sweetened coffee and cocoa lead to a nice roasty,sweet creamy flavor. nice choco hints added and finishe with light bitterness on the tongue. overall, not a bad stout. Iím not a huge fan of really sweet stouts. this one is sweet but not overly like some sweeter stouts can be. Iíve had sweeter oatmeal stouts than this....so itís not that bad!!!

I drank this beer after a piece of very dark chocolate. Starts with a floral aroma I cannot place, very dark color. I was unable to draw up a big head. It is very smooth, and I do taste the chocolate, but that could be suggestive association. Mild malty flavor with a sweetness that matches the aroma. Very little aftertaste, perhaps slightly bitter.

Sweet smokey and fruity flavor with roast and chocolate. Medium body with moderately low carbonation. 6/5/6/3/12 3.0 On 11/10/2005. Small dark brown head, an aroma that resembles a scottish ale. Strong taste of coffee. 7/4/5/4/12 - 3.2

Was just telling yayforbeer that the last few stouts Iíve come across have been rather *rough* around the edges. This too is at first. Mellows out a bit. Pitch black colour....stout..duh! no massive head, but a faint one that sits around for about as long as it takes to drink this. Served out of a pinter0.9oz. The bottle looks a bit medicinal, though kinda cool. Taste is a very burnt cast away of chocolates, hops and malts with a tit of bitter sweet to perhaps elude to a cream? i guess it works as I find myself enjoying this.Iíve tried their organic ale, and I believe Ill try the others now that 2 beers have passed tha test....oh and it smells like coffee. yes..................................update. Publix corn chips and Publix brand salsa consumed while drinking this beer creates a euphoric phenomenom i can only describe as lighter fluid and freshly lit charcol.

Black,redish colour. Thin tan head. Burnt, roasted acidic nose with some notes of chocolate. Roasted malt in flavour, with hints of dark chocolate and coffee. Slight vinous. A pleasant acidity in finish.
