Shag (2655) - Chattanooga, Tennessee, USA - JAN 24, 2004
Appearance is solid black with a nice tan head and excellent lacing. Aroma is chocolate, raisins, plums, and vanilla. Flavor is slighty sweet with a vanilla ice cream , milk chocolate, and toffee flavor. Not overly sweet but a very dairy like mouthfeel. I could really get into this one!

Trappist (286) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - JAN 18, 2004
Coffee, and chocolate all the way! Dark brown and semi-sweet, with metallic notes that seem to be a trend in all of the St.Peters brews. Creamy mouth feel, all in all not bad.

Brodie (540) - Blowing Rock, North Carolina, USA - JAN 17, 2004
Aroma is nice - chocolate, coffee, light fruits, walnuts. Very dark brown, almost black, tan head diminished quickly. Flavor is a little disappointing, the chocolate and coffee are there but a little watered down. Slight roasty bitterness in the finish. Full bodied and creamy. Overall its not bad, the flavor could be more intense.

aracauna (3187) - Georgia, USA - JAN 15, 2004
Pours a not-quite-opaque black, brown around the edges. The head is weak and fades into a weather pattern. The aroma is odd. Something like a chocolate-flavored sour cream. That sour cream thing had me concerned, but at the first sip, I noticed no sourness and I never did pick up a sourness in the flavor. The flavor is heavy on the cream, slight coffee and chocolate. The mouthfeel is slick and oily. Quite the interesting beer.

Suttree (5379) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - JAN 10, 2004
Black, slight head. It smells, with out exaggeration, like fudge with walnuts. Flavor is slightly winey - port, probably - with strong notes of chocolate and coffee. Nice.

Kasteelfreak (341) - Fallbrook, California, USA - JAN 9, 2004
Nice roasted chocolately aroma. A little vegetative (grassy) aroma in there as well. Taste has a little cocoa caramel, vanilla and just a little fruit. What I don't like about is the metallic and very slightly skunky taste. Maybe it's the green bottle. Palate is medium, and finish is more dry cocoa. Head vanished almost immediately and left no lace. Very good, but not great. Thanks Rogueman!

egajdzis (5507) - Pennsburg, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 4, 2004
Really cool looking medicine bottle poured pitch black with a small tan head and alittle lacing on the glass. Chocolate, vanilla, roast, and fruit aroma, possibly some alcohol there as well. Bitter dark chocolate taste, followed by smoke. Mouthfeel was very nice, round and full.

mkobes (2142) - paramus, New Jersey, USA - DEC 30, 2003
Very good beer. Roasty, with some notes of raisins. Full bodied beer, roasty and creamy. complex beer. Really enjoyable.

MaiBockAddict (1497) - Good Beer Bar Deprived, New Jersey, USA - DEC 30, 2003
Black with a tan head. Roasty, fruity (raisin, plum) bread and doggie biscuit aroma. Full bodied beer, roasty and creamy with a slightly sour, chocolate roast finish. Interesting, complex, and drinkable.

Darkover (1524) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - DEC 12, 2003
Dark brown color with a small brown head. Aroma is very chocolatey, like good swiss dark chocolate. Creamy/milky with flavors of chocolate, roast and a little bitterness. It does get a little sour after warming up.
