UPDATED: MAY 8, 2007 Dark and disappointing -I was hoping for a much more complex taste from
this brew. Still, it’s good... but not great.

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

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
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.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
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!

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.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

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!

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.

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.
