Suttree (5142) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - JAN 10, 2004
Black, slight head. It smells, with out exaggeration, like fudge with walnuts. Flavor is slightly winey - port, probably - with strong notes of chocolate and coffee. Nice.

Kasteelfreak (341) - Fallbrook, California, USA - JAN 9, 2004
Nice roasted chocolately aroma. A little vegetative (grassy) aroma in there as well. Taste has a little cocoa caramel, vanilla and just a little fruit. What I don't like about is the metallic and very slightly skunky taste. Maybe it's the green bottle. Palate is medium, and finish is more dry cocoa. Head vanished almost immediately and left no lace. Very good, but not great. Thanks Rogueman!

egajdzis (5336) - Spring Mount, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 4, 2004
Really cool looking medicine bottle poured pitch black with a small tan head and alittle lacing on the glass. Chocolate, vanilla, roast, and fruit aroma, possibly some alcohol there as well. Bitter dark chocolate taste, followed by smoke. Mouthfeel was very nice, round and full.

MaiBockAddict (1497) - Good Beer Bar Deprived, New Jersey, USA - DEC 30, 2003
Black with a tan head. Roasty, fruity (raisin, plum) bread and doggie biscuit aroma. Full bodied beer, roasty and creamy with a slightly sour, chocolate roast finish. Interesting, complex, and drinkable.

Darkover (1517) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - DEC 12, 2003
Dark brown color with a small brown head. Aroma is very chocolatey, like good swiss dark chocolate. Creamy/milky with flavors of chocolate, roast and a little bitterness. It does get a little sour after warming up.

rlgk (10514) - Göteborg/Jönköping, SWEDEN - DEC 12, 2003
Black with a nice and creamy brownish head. Aroma is cocoa and chocolate, smoked and with sweetness. Flavor is smoked too, with coffee and ends with a quite bitter finish.

ZepolK (102) - South Side Montebello, California, USA - NOV 22, 2003
I am really surprised at the low rating on this beer. I found it to very appealing and satisfying. Deep dark black color with a dark brown medium head and strong lacing. Aroma of smoke and coffee and a hint of candy. Flavor was full and smooth with an amazing creamy mouth feel that finishes very dry and bitter. I really enjoyed this one!

Bottled. Black with a brown head. Aroma from tar, milk and dried fruits. Tarry flavour with notes of coffee, licorice with a milky palate-feel.
