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.

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.

JahNoth (1039) - Rochester, New York, USA - APR 24, 2004
This is a tough beer to figure. No head, despite the rough pour. Slight burnt toast in the aroma, very deep in color, almost opaque. Thin mouthfeel, interesting melange of bitter chocolate, burnt coffee with an aftertaste of sour hops. Kinda fishy. Try it, let me know what you think.

Silphium (3179) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - APR 21, 2004
Poured deep opaque chestnut brown with a medium tan head. Aroma of sweet chocolate, toast, and earthy hops. Flavor was a let-down; the individual components (sweet chocolate, toast, caramel, roast, and musty/earthy hops) were not well-blended. The sweetness became almost cloying after a few sips, and the occasional sharp roasted note seemed misplaced. The body was way too thin to carry these flavors, providing little in the way of mouthfeel. Disappointing.

Ingevara (816) - SWEDEN - APR 19, 2004
A high foamy head, colored like english tea-with-milk. The beer is bitter and has a very noticeable side taste of dark plain chocolate. Coiuld be sweeter... Good - but nothing really special.

argo0 (11642) - Washington DC, USA - APR 12, 2004
Black body topped by smallish creamy tan head. Aroma is coffee, roasty, chocolate, light cherry, cream. Taste is medium sweet, milked coffee, finishing coffee bitter. Creamy medium body with mild acidity.

Kathy (241) - Washington DC, USA - APR 12, 2004
Lovely, rich, mocha-colored head. Brown/black color that doesn't allow any light through. Iced cafe au lait aroma, but aroma is not very strong. Wow. Rich, yummy flavor. Creamy, iced coffee with a very nicely rounded bitterness and a bit of sweetness in the finish. Mmmmmmm.

Vac (2445) - San Diego, California, USA - APR 8, 2004
This stout pours with a black body topped by a thin, brown head with some lacing. The aroma is roasty, slightly bitter and malty with slight sweet notes and a nice coffee note. The flavor is slightly sweet but mostly bitter, roasty and malty with a nice coffee note. Full bodied, smooth and slighlty dry.
