UPDATED: APR 29, 2004 (Bottle) Pours a black color with a medium frothy tan head. Kind of an interesting taste. Not very interesting.

Coffee like aroma with a hint of fudge, thin but nicely sweet malt taste, pleasant but strange aftertaste, I get the impression they might have thrown Nuetrasweet in there.Very simple, but tasty and refreshing

unclebleen (620) - California, USA - NOV 10, 2003
Dark brown color with lots of particles and zero head (this seems deviant to most other ratings). Aroma is roasted chocolate, very sweet aroma. Flavor is quite neutral. Some sweetness but little else. Body is extremely watery. Not impressed with this beer.

MaBeer1972 (1263) - Taunton, Massachusetts, USA - NOV 9, 2003
Very black color with a foamy tan head that fades quickly. Somewhat ruby when held to the light. Lots of particles swimming around too. Aroma isn't too much unlike a Guinness Extra. Flavor is very rich and a little sweet. Feels like syrup, but finishes smooth and more on the watery side but a little acidic. A Strange brew!

Jedsbrew (465) - Rhineland, Missouri, USA - NOV 3, 2003
Pretty dark but not totally so, with a head that looked like the picture there. Sort of a bready fudge aroma, with a peculiar note that smelled like a doghouse. Surprisingly light in body, with interesting flavors of caramel, vanilla, brown sugar and orange. Mild finish with a faint bitterness. I don't know about this one, but it is different.

thehoff (585) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - OCT 27, 2003
Stout dark with foamy tan head. Smells very sweet, chocolate, cherries, carmel, paint? The taste is almost watery. Very light, smooth, almost no flavor at all. No aftertaste. Tart but that is all. Nothing there. Very odd beer.

haddon90 (1429) - Denver, Colorado, USA - OCT 25, 2003
Impressed by this beer. Pours a dark brown color with a tan head, which made me think this was close to a porter or a stout. Roasted malt aroma and some chocolate as well. But the taste was sooo smooth! Suprised me quite a bit. Flavorful as well. I liked this...very impressive and a must try!

GEOBRAU (188) - Mesa, Arizona, USA - OCT 22, 2003
UPDATED: NOV 7, 2003 Quickly becoming one of my fav beers. Rich yet not overpowering. sweet but not syrupy. In a word a "clean" brew.

bgarrigus (36) - Massachusetts, USA - OCT 21, 2003
Very interesting beer. I'm not sure where they put the anise, but I couldn't find it. Chocolatey aroma, without being too roasted. Milky smooth taste with very little bitterness, this beer surprised me when I first had it. Creamy, nutty finish that ended surprisingly clean considering the milkiness.

Bottled. Reddish black with rich beigre head. Odd cork aroma. Mild, sweet and velvetty with spun sugar and a pleasant mouthfeel.
