Immy (1955) - Virginia Beach, USA - SEP 9, 2006
12 oz bottle from aracauna. Black with a ring of brown for a head. Medium bitter chocolate nose, sweet malt, and, for the first time in an oatmeal, I can smell oats! Nice! Cocoa flavors, coffee, some raisin. Good.

erway (1004) - Albuquerque, New Mexico, USA - SEP 9, 2006
Pours a deep black with a a med. brown cream-like head. Aroma is of chocolate rum cake with a touch of Irish Cream. The body is med-heavy with a perfect amount of bitterness. The flavors are so well balanced, you have to remind yourself that the beer is 8.1%. Nothing stands out predominantly over the other. Cocoa covered raisins, coffee and cream, followed by a refined balancing bitterness. This is one of the best balanced beers I have had in a longtime.

hotstuff (4274) - Indiana, USA - SEP 5, 2006
Bottle. Small tan fizzy head that mostly diminished, lackluster lacing, opaque, no visible carbonation, and a black hue. Nose was malty and roasted coffee. Ditto for the flavor with a hint of chocolate. Fairly smooth mouthfeel. Medium body.

daalamar (405) - new albany, Indiana, USA - SEP 5, 2006
Bottle thanks to Ross. Pours black with a small tan head. Aroma is coffee, grain and maybe cherry. Flavor is not at all what I was expecting. Light coffee tones with the oatmeal more of a creamy mouthfeel than an actual flavor. Quite acidic with a medium dry finish. An overall plesant beer though I was expecting more.

gputty (456) - Virgina Beach, Virginia, USA - SEP 3, 2006
From bottle thanks to Immy. Pours pitch black with coffee ring. Nose is creamy coffee and doughy. Flavor is bitter chocolate and coffee. Very smooth on the palate.

mnapier (10) - Washington, USA - AUG 28, 2006
"Monster 2006 Beer Tour" bottle in an Authentic German style Luettich Balloon glass Tasting Temp 50° (previous in a 33° refrigerator) If Stephen Hawking was to review the clarity of this beer, I would be reading more about Einstein and the universe, truly a black hole of darkness in a glass. Much like the brewery mascot that is featured on the bottle label, the head retention is timid almost scared as only a small fringe of white is present on the outer rim. As I swirl the glass around, half full of this possibly barrel aged, coffee aromatic, ale, I am compelled to still seek a hint of hops, although yet to be classified. A casual sip, hits my tongue and reminds me of roasted coffee, curious espresso, with minor amounts of woodiness. Overall mouth feel, comes off as medium.

glkaiser (1214) - Seattle, Washington, USA - AUG 26, 2006
Black with dark brown head. Coffee, chocolate and sweet cinnamon aroma. Great taste that mirrors the aroma. Very smooth and chocolatey. Alcohol is very hidden, and no bitter hop taste at all. Good coffee taste, but not incredible. Got this after a tasting with the guys from Bottleworks, thanks guys.

lamas (1372) - Washington DC, USA - AUG 22, 2006
2006 bottle courtesy of ross. A jet-black pour with a smallish chestnut head. An aroma full of rich and roasty coffee, caramel, chocolate and dark cherries. Full, velvety-smooth body. Starts with some caramel and chocolate and finishes with plenty of dark coffee and hoppy bitterness. A lingering flavor that is very reminiscent of the last overly-sweetened sips of a cup of coffee that has long since gone cold. This is a real treat.

rudolf (2342) - Buffalo, New York, USA - AUG 19, 2006
Bottle from illinismitty. Pours pitch black, decent dark tan head. Nose is inky black malt, cherry, alcohol, mocha, decent hop presence. Flavor is deep rich malt, lots of wonderful dark burnt sweetness, dark dark cherry, coffee is there but not overly aggressive. Nice silky body.

decaturstevo (5215) - decatur, Tennessee, USA - AUG 17, 2006
UPDATED: MAY 11, 2008 An almost black pour with a dark tan head. If chocolate came in flavors this would be alochol scented chocolate. An alcohol and raisin like flavor with the coffee, choco and alcohol being evident. A slight graininess in the palate but full bodied and flavorful. A damn fine beer that was lost in my frige for over 2 months.
