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.

Bottled. Black with a brown head. A burnt aroma with hints of prune. Rather smooth palate-feel and with a burnt flavour.

ARMed (598) - Garnet Valley, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 12, 2003
Love the bottle but don't like the beer. This stout is as thick as motor oil only blacker. Too thick and robust for me. It has a burnt unsweetened dark chocolate bitter taste with a strong phenolic aftertaste. Extremely viscous and virtually black in color. Almost no head and very little lacing. Poor carbonation. Resembles black molasses.

clvand0 (350) - Lexington, Kentucky, USA - NOV 12, 2003
This beer poured a very dark color with a very small head. The aroma was chocolate, coffee, malts, milk, and several other things. Excellent aroma. The flavor was smooth and enjoyable and not as sweet as expected. The flavor was mostly like the aroma with some sort of fruits hidden as well. Body was medium and drinkability was fairly smooth.

ante (3374) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - NOV 12, 2003
Black with a small tan head. Nice aroma dark coffee, roasted coffee beans and milky chocolate. Smooth mouthfeel. Dark chocolate with some burnt notes, balanced with a milky smoothness. Long and smooth malty finish with a warming flavour.

A very good sweet stout with a complex sweet flavor and a nice warming feeling going down. A good beer for a nightcap.

BBB63 (6019) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - NOV 3, 2003
UPDATED: NOV 7, 2003 #7 of my Stouts of November: Nearly opaque with a small rocky tan head and fair lace. Nutty, caramel, semi-sweet chocolate, grassy hops, earthy yeast and smoke esters on the nose. Taste starts chocolately and smooth, a bit nutty as well. The finish turned bitter, twangy, and woody bourbon touch. Creates a good overall balance. Medium to full-bodied with a creamy and soft mouthfeel. A very nice sweet stout with some sublime complexities. Recommended.

Jet black with a touch red in the right light. The aroma has a hint of chocolate. Goes down smooth and pleasant aftertaste.

Color was black, with a quickly evaporating tan head in the glass. The aroma, chocolate and sweet. Consistant flavor: burnt attack, burnt middle, burnt finish.

Dark body with just a bit of ruby around the edges. Small, tan head. Aroma of candy bar chocolate, and malts. Smooth texture. Sweet, chocolate, malts flavor. Pretty good.
