Deep dark brown/black beer. Thin tan head. Smells of raisins, prunes, dates, you know; chocolate, coffee a little bit of smoke. Very nice flavor, besides the slight metallic taste. Very rich espresso flavor, nice and deep taste. Very very nice. Slightly sweet but the bitter coffee flavor is predominant.

turbothy (1141) - Bonn, GERMANY - NOV 11, 2004
Opaque, no head whatsoever. Smoky aroma. Great taste of coffee and chocolate. Perhaps a bit over the top, but extra points for the stylish bottle.

MAP (1133) - Lakewood, Ohio, USA - NOV 7, 2004
Normal stout appearance, and an oh so creamy aroma. Chocolate malt and cream dominate the nose with a bit of caramel as well. The flavor is also quite smooth and creamy until you find that strong bitterness. Quite a nice balance, as the beer ends with the two sides merged together, hoppy bitterness, and creamy smoothness.

Lumpy (1802) - Carrollton, Texas, USA - OCT 23, 2004
Bottle. Toffee, dry fruit, slight smoke, and bitersweet chocolate. Good coating mouthfeel. Very nice dry finish with some hop bitterness. Very well done and enjoyable. The only really detracting thing is a slight sourness on the backend, but it is mild. Very nice.

Kevin (2155) - New Mexico, USA - OCT 23, 2004
bottle, pours a consistant black with very little carbonation. cardboard aroma with a dry caramel hint.BLAND, watery chocolate and toffe flavors. i don’t know if this is due to a lack of grain bill or or some other feature. this is water with a candy bar in it and a shot of gin. ugh. no mas.

bierkoning (11111) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - OCT 22, 2004
Opague. Chocolate, cream, cacao and mocha in the almost fat aroma. Full bodied and bittersweet, like pure chocolate. Creamy and voloptuous. Hints of Christmas pudding. What a great beer!

shadey (1996) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - OCT 12, 2004
Pour was black and oily. A thin dark tan head was pretty attractive. Aroma wasn’t all that intense. Maybe a little too cold. The flavor was a nice bitter coffee and some chocolate. I enjoyed this considerably, but it was bit expensive. I can find stous just as pleasurable for less.

bark (255) - Linköping, SWEDEN - OCT 2, 2004
The colour is all black. The medium sized foam is deep brown, and dissolves slowly into a brownish surface. The smell is powerful; it is sweet and full of cocoa, roasted malts and black coffee. The carbon dioxide is very gentle, almost absent but still noticeable with really small bubbles. The mouth feel is very “creamy”, like drinking a mix of milk and cream. The roasted malt gives this beer a flavour that is almost smoky taste. There are distinct notes of cocoa, pumpernickel, coffee liqueur and a good measure of bitter hops. The aftertaste is creamy with an increasing bitterness, which slowly decreases into a soft taste of dark chocolate and coffee. This stout is really… Stout. The smell and taste is potent, but at the same time very elegant and well balanced. The almost overwhelming flavour and the soft carbon dioxide almost invite you to a really slow drinking experience that could last all night. Pleasant in its own way, but in some cases, it might be just too much.

rhapsouldize (174) - Phoenixville, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 28, 2004
Mmmm. Pours a nearly opaque dark dark brown with a foamy tan head. Slight ruby glow. Nice lacing. Aroma is sweet and malty. Definite creamy chocolate flavor with a slightly bitter finish. Nice bottle, and a delicious beer to go with it.
