Ingevara (859) - 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.

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.

No pop when I opened the cap, dark chocolate aroma with a hint of fig or raisin, thick sweet chocolate and raisin taste with a very bitter aftertaste. Stayed bitter the whole way. Wouldn't call it smooth.

Above average stout - smooth and silky, with some flavors of chocolate, coffee and a hint of hops at the finish.

whaleman (2178) - North Wales, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 1, 2004
Nearly opaque black body with a ruby tone and thin brown head. Nice, appetizing roasty chocolate and coffee aroma plus some woody hops. The same qualities come through very well in the flavor and finish with some nice medium bitterness. This is a high quality stout and a very pleasant surprise. Not far off from one of Samuel Smith's stouts. Granted, I know this to be a very fresh bottle since a recent "English invasion" of beers has hit the shelves in Albuquerque. I love the cool vintage bottle based on an 18th century antique from the great state of New Jersey.

RichardGretton (4433) - Leicestershire, ENGLAND - MAR 28, 2004
Relatively flat stout with a roasted coffee aroma, and a plain dry roasted flavour. Expected a bit more from the beer, overall a weak stout.

wildchefbill (245) - Sarasota, Florida, USA - MAR 19, 2004
Pours black with a very small tan head. Aroma is strong, burnt chocolate and dried figs. Flavor is syrup sweet to start, Lots of roasted coffee and dried fruit. A bitter finish follows. A nice dry aftertaste without any alcohol burn. Flavors are very strong and very nice. Mouthfeel is thick with little carbonation, a little oily. Much like an Imperial without the astringent alcohol finish. A very nice brew.

elnadeau (786) - Laguna Niguel, California, USA - MAR 19, 2004
Pours dark with almost no head at all, aroma is sweet roasted chocolate, initial flavor follows. Syrupy sweet, smooth with cocoa prominent, medium body. Agree that this is very much like an imperial stout, perhaps more drinkable than most. Overall very enjoyable.
