rmussman (1702) - California, USA - APR 10, 2008
Sampled at the brew pub. Pour was very dark and aroma was rich with roasted scents. Head is pretty thick thanks to the nitro. Overall flavor and texture is very smooth with a dry finish and a nice aftertaste. Very full bodied.

BillKismet (3412) - Seattle, Washington, USA - MAR 26, 2008
Great looking deep sasparilla color with firm chocolate head. Wonderful medley of deep chocolate and dark chocolate notes in flavor and aroma. Roast is stronger in aroma than in flavor. Very creamy and definitely nitrogenated.

jasonp (1556) - Ashburn, Virginia, USA - JAN 18, 2008
From June 2007 tasting notes, sampled at Thirsty Bear. Dark brown, almost black with a beige head. Lighly roasty nose with a touch of smoke. Flavor starts with roasted malt, coffee and earthiness - moderately sweet then the bottom falls out (flavorwise) and fades into watery-ness. Light bodied, a bit watery with light carbonation.

Bobsy (194) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 2, 2008
Draught sampler at the brewpub. Black body, with a small tan head. Strongly roasted aroma, with chocolate notes. The flavour is rich and deep, with layers of roasted malt, coffee, chocolate and smoke. Smooth and creamy on the palate. A very good stout.

Delirium (636) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - SEP 18, 2007
Draught at the brewpub. Pours dark brown / black with a moderate tan head. Aroma is roasted malt, some dark fruits, and hint of chocolate. Flavor is a robust malty stout, with a lot of roast and a bit of sweetness. A little bit of bitterness, and a creamy, full mouthfeel; not particularly dry imo. Quite good, though.

grant (842) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - SEP 16, 2007
Slightly pulpy, cardboardy malty roasty aroma. Rich, roasty malt body, a little patenty for my tastes, but nice overall. Surprisingly sweet finish.

lb4lb (2570) - Austin, Texas, USA - JUL 23, 2007
Malty chocolate coffee smell, with a rich black color and light brown head to the bear and thick lacing. Taste is similar to the smell, with a hint of caramel. Some bitterness, but very drinkable, creamy and a bit dry in the finish, but not too much so.

pivo (2622) - GERMANY - JUN 2, 2007
Coffe note in the nose, opaque black, creamy frothy head. Sweet for a brief second at the beginning--like dark chocolate. Then turning to a burnt charcoal taste. Creamy texture. Maybe too roasted, but fun anyway.

Papsoe (25074) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - APR 5, 2007
(On tap) Completely opaque black with a creamy, light brown head leaving laces. Lightly burned aroma. Fairly light-bodied with burned, malty accents and hints of both coffee and licorice. Dry but not overly bitter finish. A pleasant and quaffable stout. 240307
