Pours a deep, dark brown with a huge chocolatey brown foam head. Good lacing. Aroma is immediately noticeable -- huge roasted chocolate and coffee malts with licorice. Taste leads with dark fruits, and a bit of booze. One of the hoppier Stouts Iíve had. Chocolate and coffee malts arenít quite as strong as in the aroma. Not the strongest Stout youíll find, but a pleasant taste and easy to drink. This is an easy drinking Stout. Strongly recommended.

UPDATED: AUG 23, 2014 Grassy. Hoppy.. Like ipa hoppy... Nose has tobacco. Tobacco on the finish. But hops overpower. Not a good stout. Different... And I donít like it.
This beer is like drinking fresh grass clippings, which is definitely not good for a stout. I actually thought I had been served the wrong beer because I took a sip and said: this is a black IPA. But nope... itís a stout.

Bottle. "Enjoy by April 10, 2007". Pours an extremely dark brown with a big, frothy, tan cap. Aroma of cocoa, coffee, citrus, tropical fruit, caramelized apple. Taste is an extremely balanced bitter sweetness. Very creamy mouthfeel. Chewy.

12oz bottle. Pours black with a small beige head. Aroma is heavy roasted chocolate malt. A bit of hoppiness at the front of the tongue to balance out the thick roasty, chocolate malt flavor. Full bodied with a lingering roasty finish. This is quite good.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Coal black color, with a decent beige-brown head.
Coffee bean defined nose, with sweeter malts and hints of floral hops.
Tastes of chocolate, followed by coffee and metallic hints, due to a surprisingly high carbonation, which reveals tobacco and earth in the finish. Smooth, slightly fizzy, creamy mouthfeel, medium-bodied beer. Taste converts from warm chocolate notes to a bitter, slightly aggressive coffee bitterness with bitter, floral hops. A bready malt-backbone adds complexity and saves the balance of this beer. The aftertaste is slick coffee bitterness with a hot stinging peak on the tongue and throat, which stays remarkably long. Well balanced, with an intriguing complexity, still pretty straight-forward heading towards the bitterness.
