OhioDad (2492) - Hilliard, Ohio, USA - APR 19, 2005
Pours almost black very dark brown. Decent Tan head that hangs around for a bit. My glass had almost no aroma. Maybe a little malt and something a little sweet but not much. The flavor is mostly roasted with a hint of chocolate. On the palate it is more watery than a porter or a stout and kind of dry on the finish. Not a bad beer to try. I had no idea what to expect when I picked this up. I’ve definitely had worse.

Dark beer with a hint of chocolate. Nice thick head. Leaves almost a sweet aftertaste of fruite. Very nice.

Wiseblood (700) - Clarksville, Tennessee, USA - APR 5, 2005
Black-brown with aromas of molasses and anise. Sweet and smooth with a syrupy malty flavor that is thick and chewy. Mild bitterness in the aftertaste. Rich and creamy with a dark roasted aspect. Somewhere between a porter and stout. Very unique flavor profile.

Sammy (9826) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 30, 2005
OK black appearance with a bit of head. And lace. Some licorice initial scent, that carried into first taste then dissipitated. A big bottle, thanks Joey for coming to help me finish. Bit aggressive carbonation.

swirl (267) - collingswood, New Jersey, USA - MAR 30, 2005
A nice black color along the lines of a porter with a dark tan head. The aroma offers chocolate as well as some malt. Sweet malt taste very much like Malta. Not a bad beer to try.

ElJefe (553) - Rochester, New York, USA - MAR 28, 2005
Black with some reddish highlights. Weak aroma, what there is smells of cola with some caramel. Not much character in the flavor, and it has a weird sourness.

wxman (1589) - O’Fallon, Illinois, USA - MAR 23, 2005
Fresh bottle but not very impressive. Hardly any nose whatsoever. Rich, dark appearance but a thin head that doesn’t coat much. Tastes bitter due to the roasted malt rather than the hops, I suspect. Frankly, it tastes like a cold cup of joe mixed with half a bottle of flat Pepsi topped off with a couple of teaspoons of sugar stirred in. Not awful, just not near as good as the style would suggest.

jercraigs (8810) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 20, 2005
Bottle of unknown vintage @ Chester’s in Hamilton. Black body with ruby tinges on the edges and a good sized beige head. Mild roast and notes of dark chocolate accenting sweet malt in the aroma. Flavour is similar, sweetly malty with a soft roast throughout. Robust. Medium to full bodied. Surprisingly good, I wasn’t expecting much.

joeycapps (1468) - Waterdown, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 19, 2005
Black w/ rocky finger of brown foam. Sweet, malty aroma of licorice, milk chocolate, & caramel. Medium, somewhat syrupy feel. Flavour is semi-sweet w/ a nice light roastiness & notes of licorice, molasses, milk chocolate, & cedary hops.
