COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask; Status uncertain. Also available brewery conditioned and cold filtered in 500ml bottles.
Fuggles and Challenger hops plus a blend of four local barley malts create an aromatic, strong, dark chocolate cream stout with a satisfying bittersweet aftertaste.

Chalky chalky hard mineralized flavors, bitter dark chocolate and some fuggley sweetness - this is just heaven for me - a session sweet stout if it weren’t so expensive - restrained bitterness, delicious. The body was light but not thin, the head was pockmarked bone ivory.

sayravai (4667) - Helsinki, FINLAND - MAY 14, 2004
(Bottled) Very dark, almost black color with a tiny head. Both dry and sweet, bitter and slightly smoky, licorice aroma. Flavor is exactly as good as the aroma promises. Dry, Very creamy, slicky smoky and full-bodied palate. An excellent stout, certainly one of the best.

DYCSoccer17 (3285) - Woodland, California, USA - MAY 13, 2004
Aroma is pretty grainy with hints of some chocolate malts. Pours the typical stout fare. Grainy, sweet to start, watery in the middle--too watery with smokiness to finish.

ChazyRPh (582) - Chazy, New York, USA - MAY 13, 2004
Opaque black pour with a medium tan head. Grainy, grassy aroma with only the slightest hint of chocolate. Acidic start, nothing else much discernable until the finish which is a very nice dark chocolate flavor that lingers. Good bitterness. Would be a good beer if not for the initial acidic taste.

Murphy (1759) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - MAY 13, 2004
Lovely brown head, excellent aroma of vanilla and coffee, very light. Nice mouthfeel, on the way to being very heavy, but still appropriate. Creamy. Starts with a nice bitterness from the hops, then draws out with a dry roastiness. Porter-like in a way. Has that hint of earthiness I have now come to expect from this brewery. Could be a little more complex, but a nice beer.

Kinz (3251) - Glen Allen, Virginia, USA - MAY 10, 2004
UPDATED: DEC 9, 2007 Interesting. Black, slight head that faded fast. Aroma of molasses, chocolate, and iodine??? Flavor was initially a bit vegetal (freakin’ Fuggles hops), but this faded as it warmed. A healthy bit of molasses and vegemite came through, with a bit of treacle. Better than it sounds. RESAMPLED in 12/07, same basic notes, but struck me as less vegetal and with a nice note of rum soaked fruit. Rating remains the same.

JackLanders (55) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - MAY 7, 2004
I’ve enjoyed every beer from this brewery right up until now. This beer would seem to have everything going for it. Good color and rich, firm head. Full of roasty, creamy flavor. But get your nose in there and smell it. Poop. This beer smells like actual feces. I swear to God the beer smells like dried up dog crap. Absolutely disgusting. I don’t know how they managed it. Revolting.

Cornboy (424) - Eastampton, New Jersey, USA - MAY 4, 2004
I didnt know what to expect from this reasonably priced bottle. Aroma was slight smokiness, little burnt chocolate. Lactic/soured milk in the aftertaste, a little coffee in there as well. Overall a very nice stout.

tsarman (794) - Northern, New Jersey, USA - APR 29, 2004
Chocolate and smokiness dominate this beer. Easy to drink and wonderful to share on a cold night. Small head, but still a wonderful beer. Dark as the night. The bottle alone makes it a worthwhile buy.

Eyedrinkale (3213) - Astoria, New York, USA - APR 28, 2004
Very rich and thick with a creamy deep chocolate and coffee taste. Very small thin tan head around the sides. Nice bitter roasted taste. Quite good for a UK stout.
