On tap GABF ’02: Black/ruby color with a small but firm head. huge lovely toasted, roasted aroma. Then when I drank it, the beer fell apart. Weak watery body, light unpleasing taste.

Draft sample at falls church. I was pleasantly surprised by the depth and complexity of this one. Nice bittersweet chocolate flavors. Roasted coffee aromas. Slight sweet smooth full bodied finish.

illinismitty (2270) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - OCT 23, 2008
Draft at Centreville. Pours a dark brown with a head that diminishes to a wisp. Aroma of dark roasted malts. Flavor of molasses and dark roast with an average attenuation. Semi dry finish with some huskiness.

scraff (2121) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - MAR 19, 2008
Dark brownish black, thin creamy tan head. Soft roasty chocolate nose with hints of burnt toast and coffee. Flavor is more of the same with light chocolate and coffee tones rounding to a faint hop bitterness. Light bodied and tad thin, soft carbonation, dry, bittersweet finish. Decent...

jeffc666 (1984) - Fairfax, Virginia, USA - MAR 9, 2004
Opaque black with ruby edges. Small frothy tan head. Aroma is roasted malt, nutty with a bit of cocoa. The flavor is much more assertive than the aroma, lots of roasted malt with coffee and nuttiness playing the predominate parts. The body is medium and dry. A decent dry stout.

MilkmanDan (1943) - Eagan, Minnesota, USA - MAR 14, 2004
Dark, when helf at an angle a bit of red light shows through. Nose roasty and a bit fruity. Roasty and bitter, some coffee and burnt wood.

On tap at Sweetwater Tavern in Centreville, VA. Opaque, deep ruddy brown, near black with fair lacing. Aroma of slightly smokey, roasted malt and coffee. Taste is dry, slightly bitter roasted malt and coffee flavor. Slightly lighter than medium body with high carbonation. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

jasonp (1555) - Leesburg, Virginia, USA - OCT 24, 2004
Pours black with a small, quickly fading brown head. Aroma is lightly roasty, that's about it. Taste is moderately sweet with notes of roasted malt, coffee and some chocolate. Slightly burnt and bitter aftertaste, dry finish. Mouthfeel is full and round. Solid, but not really memorable.

Very chocolatey, even smells that way. Good bitterness. Just what you want in a stout. Drinkable, and has tinge of coffee.
