ChazyRPh (583) - Chazy, New York, USA - MAY 17, 2004
3oz sample at the brewery. Opaque with a large tan head. Aroma of dark chocolate...lots of carbonation (?!) Strong chocolate flavor in the middle, mellowing to a slightly bitter finish. Too thin for a stout.

DYCSoccer17 (3550) - Woodland, California, USA - MAY 13, 2004
Sample platter 3oz sample at pub. Milky aroma with some choco/coffee notes. Pours typical stout color. Small maple in the nose as well. Chocolatey, thin, overcarbonated. More like a porter, and their proter is more like a stout. I double checked and the pour was accurate from the correct tap. Perhaps the lines were crossed?

axilla (962) - New Providence, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 29, 2004
Light malt aroma, Very similar to other Vermont Brewery beers. Extremely dark brown, almost black color. Feint roasted malty taste. A little more carbonated than I hoped for but could still use some more hops.

Near black body with little head or lace. Smokey roasty coffee nose is a bit weak. Dark malty flavors with a slightly dry bitter finish. Kind of one dimensional. Fair.

CaptainCougar (7133) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - MAR 18, 2004
On tap: Pours a nice black color with a dense nitro head. Aroma is weak, mostly dry and roasted. Very little sweetness and complexity. Body is kinda thin, very mild, dry and roasty. Needs some more thickness and flavor.

Draft @ brewpub, cask. Black pour with minimal head. Nice chocolate start followed up by a nice roasted coffee finish. Smooth and creamy. A very good Dry Stout.

tiggmtl (4545) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 18, 2004
Chocolate, coffee and roasted barley aromas. Darkest brown with ruby highlights and dense tan head. Starts sweet and chocolatey but gets engulfed by roasted barley and black malt bitterness in the finish. Far more dry than expected but it works very well. I would have liked a bit more body then the medium-thin mouthfeel this one offers. On tap (Nov 2003).

Vac (2445) - San Diego, California, USA - SEP 25, 2003
Pours with a dark brown to black body with red accents topped by a medium thick tan head with little lacing. Slightly bitter roasty malt aroma with a slight musty, grainy note. Slightly sweet but mostly bitter and roasty malt flavor with a slight hoppiness. Not at all what I expect from a quality stout. Medium to full bodied and smooth.

Black colour with a light brown head. Very light roast malt aroma. Smooth mouthfeel, but watery. Creamy, light bitterness at the finish. OK.
