UPDATED: DEC 21, 2003 Re-rate - December 21, 2003 - I found a bottle of this stashed away from back in January, and either my tastes have changed or this aged really nicely. The body is stronger than I remember, and the flavour is quite complex, with notes of chocolate, vanilla, bourbon, toffee, and bitter coffee. Makes me wish I'd bought more when it was available up here!

Original rating - January 8, 2003 (3.6): A still, inky blackness with no head to be found. Roasty aroma with some chocolate and a hint of vanilla. Light, creamy mouth feel - not really my style, I like my stouts to be chewier. Toasty flavour with a smoky, bitter cocoa finish.

daboskabouter (1470) - Fergus, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 4, 2003
Black appearnce, quickly dissipitating foamy tan head. Big aroma of heavy roast and light chocolate. A touch of alcohol and smoke in there as well. The body is smooth with semisweet malt presence and pleasant roast. Smoke in the finish. Dries towards the end with a milky mouthfeel. This is a great stout, lovin the smoke, great roast in the nose. Love this brewery.

CapFlu (4550) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 4, 2003
Pours an opaque black with a thin-laced head. Fairly sweet aroma with hints of licorice. Taste: cocoa, malt, bitter and medicinal. Rather gross!!!

DougShoemaker (3147) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 2, 2003
Chocolate, coffee and liquorice aromas. Black, pours a medium cappuccino head, some lace. Coffee, liquorice and faint chocolate flavours, great roasted bitter aftertaste. Bitter, oily, quite smooth. A fine Sweet Stout!

mrkimchee (1414) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 2, 2003
pours black with a tan head. roasty, curranty sweet nose. as the name implies, it has a creamy, smooth mouthfeel. mildly smoky, roasted malt flavours, hints of vanilla sweetness. I’d never guess this beer was 6.5%abv. a nice sweet stout.

beerguy101 (5287) - Newark, California, USA - DEC 18, 2002
Eclipse black color, very small head. Enormous chocolaty aroma. A medium bodied stout. Mild malts, kind of smoky. The chocolate flavor is mostly in the aroma. Smooth taste, sort of chocolate milk like. A nice sipping stout. This or Young’s D Choc Stout would be a good introduction to the style. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is sweet.

SilkTork (5236) - Rochester, Kent, United Kingdom, Kent, ENGLAND - DEC 16, 2002
OK, I don’t like St Peter’s overpriced beers, nor am I a fan of soft, oatmeal type stouts, but this is very smooth and drinkable with lots of flavours. It’s calm and well mannered, and it has no complex depths (the St Peter’s beers are not bottle conditioned), but slips down like an oyster in velvet. Not bad for a brewery more concerned with marketing than with making artisinal beers, but not great.

loweredsixth (946) - Clovis, California, USA - DEC 7, 2002
Black color with almost no head. Soft feel, not crisp in any way, but that’s okay here. This thing has an extreme smoky/roasted flavor. The aroma was sweet with some slight alcohol in it. A somewhat tobacco finish here leaves me curious as to exactly how I feel about this beer. I would have guessed this was a dry stout (with a sweet edge to it).

Charred chocolaty aroma, even more charred on the palate. Very mild fruitiness and decent bitterness in the finish. Black color but virtually no foam.
