Braudog (6014) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - JUL 3, 2005
Poured like motor oil with a big airy, cascading tan head. Little to no aroma. Likewise, I didn’t discern really all that much of the big-bodied flavors I expected. This is smooth and only light sweet ... toffee, mild bitterness ... OK.

Very dark with a very unique sasparilla like taste. The taste signature is very individual. Very strong.

jimhilt (2469) - Bow, New Hampshire, USA - JUN 30, 2005
Pours with a three-finger brown head that leaves some lace. Solid black color. Light-medium bodied and light carbonation. Slightly malty nose. Starts sweet - hints of molasses and toffee finishes mellow - not dry. $10.49 for a 6-pak of 12oz. bottles from Tulley’s Beer & Wine Wells, Me.

Sregnar35 (1023) - Rotterdam, New York, USA - JUN 23, 2005
This is a pretty good, dark beer. But in my opinion it needs more roasted flavor and more alcohol.

frankenkitty (1981) - Oak Lawn, Illinois, USA - JUN 13, 2005
Pours like a porter (I like it already)... deep, thick, red/black with an oily tan head. Aromas of roasted malts, raisin, some peachy sweetness, and a hint of vinyl. Flavor started sweet and ended with a sour-bitterness. Carbonated mouthfeel nicely thinned out the thickness of the body.

ABUSEDGOAT (2416) - California, USA - JUN 11, 2005
UPDATED: SEP 4, 2005 A black pour. Almost no aroma. Hints of roast and coffe in the flavor, but nothing to be desired. Smooth and easy to drink, but lacking complexity. Overpriced at $10 for a 6 pack. MolsonCoors? It’s got the watery part... now divide the price in half and you have a winner.

TheBeerGod (5568) - Newport News, Virginia, USA - JUN 8, 2005
Bottle. Black body with a dark brown head. Nose is roasty malts, light cocoa, dark chocolate and a hint of coffee. Taste is sweet malts, roasty notes, dark chocolate, light hint of caramel and thinned coffee. Body is medium and moderately carbonated. Finish is some milk chocolate, some lactic notes, roasted malts and light smokiness. Goes well with some cookie dough ice cream also!

JoshuaB (476) - Detroit, Michigan, USA - JUN 3, 2005
UPDATED: JUN 4, 2005 Bottle : Had this at Sushi Samba. Not much of an aroma. Smells of some roastiness. Pours and looks like a stout. Tastes nothing like. I thought it was pretty watery. Roasted chocolate with a slight bite at the end. Not much complexity to this beer. Wouldnt try again.

TheDean (786) - MIlwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 30, 2005
Interesting auroma, smells like spent coffee grounds that have been left out for a month. Almos the perfectpour though (just a little more head would do it). WOW, is this beer SWEET. Taste like an Eisbock with about a dozen sugar cubes added. Not a big fan.

Lizabeth (360) - east falmouth, Massachusetts, USA - MAY 21, 2005
Bottle. Very black opaque body with a thin dark tan head. Faint licorice and cola nose. Taste is burnt toast, figs and Moxie, all subdued. A disappointing beer.
