Cornfield (5465) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - JUL 24, 2005
What a tasty surprize! Picked up as a single in a "bargain bin" at a liquor store, I end up with a delightful, creamy sweet stout. Dark brown in body with a slender pale tan head, this has an aroma filled with chocolate and roasted malts. Creamy in the mouth, the roasted malt predominates, along with a dash of burnt barley, milk chocolate, and a nice balance of herbal hops. The finish is sticky sweet chocolate malt. Simple and straightforward, but Good stuff.

PorterPounder (5446) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - OCT 21, 2006
RFD - Washington DC - 12 oz bottle. Very good solid stout. Deep dark black pour with a medium size off-white head. Hints of coffee and marshmallows in the strong aroma. Flavor is very roasty with some day old coffee, baker’s chocolate and mashmallows. Good lacticity and a creamy mouthfeel. Enjoyed this one.

Suttree (5118) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - MAR 3, 2007
Black with a reddish tint, nice dense brown head. Coffee and chocolate, of course, but also a whiff of Dr. Pepper/ And a floral note. Flavor is also coffee and chocolate, plus a surprising hop bite.

jbrus (4992) - Delft, NETHERLANDS - SEP 27, 2004
Nice espresso aroma. Black, small brown head that disappears almost completely, few lace. Sweet, light coffee, light bitter, medium body. No exceptional strong aroma or flavor but very nice to drink. I could drink this all evening and lots of evenenings.

thedm (4935) - Fort Wayne, USA - MAY 17, 2005
This bottled brew poured a small sized head of fine to medium sized light brown colored long lasting bubbles that left behind an opaque black body with no visible carbonation and a fair lacing. The aroma of dark brown malts contined chocolaty notes raisins and plum. The mouth feel is initially tingly then smoothens into a slightly tingly dark malt after taste. The flavor contains notes of mild coffee dark chocolate and dark malts with a mild hoppy bite. Pretty good and very drinkable. Well done FBC!

Strykzone (4897) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - AUG 22, 2007
Very dark pour with a thin tan head. Deep roasted aroma fills the nose. Smooth and creamy mouth feel. Roasted notes are very present as is espresso. This beer enters the mouth somewhat syrupy but then picks up some mild fireworks and settles into a light dry bitterness. This is not a classic stout but is a great beer to sample. There is plenty going on to keep the taste buds active.
