Black with a nice and creamy brownish head. Aroma is cocoa and chocolate, smoked and with sweetness. Flavor is smoked too, with coffee and ends with a quite bitter finish.

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

ChazyRPh (582) - Chazy, New York, USA - MAY 13, 2004
Opaque black pour with a medium tan head. Grainy, grassy aroma with only the slightest hint of chocolate. Acidic start, nothing else much discernable until the finish which is a very nice dark chocolate flavor that lingers. Good bitterness. Would be a good beer if not for the initial acidic taste.

rgrep (156) - Wellington, NEW ZEALAND - SEP 10, 2004
(13 Apr 04) Medium hoppy aroma with notes of burnt malt, caramel and strong, bitter coffee. The beer pours black with a light brown fizzy head that develops creamy before diminishing completely. It has a soft and chewy mouthfeel that begins only lighly sweet and bitter but these flavours grow into the lightly alcoholic finish.

acertain (249) - Seattle, Washington, USA - AUG 18, 2005
Pours dark, with a medium-dark head. Smells of roasted malt with a slight hint of alcohol. In the mouth it’s a pretty ordinary stout in both feel and flavor, with roasted malt flavor and some hints of chocolate. I wouldn’t call this a sweet stout; it’s pretty bitter and roasty, and not very sweet/smooth/full. I probably wouldn’t go for this one again.

MesandSim (7119) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 2, 2005
A Mes rate: I really like this style. As far as high quality stouts go however, this is not one of them. I’m not going to bother too much with the description. It does everything a stout does. Roasted coffee, chocolate, liquorice and usual stout behaviour. Its just too sticky even a long time after you have swallowed.
