Bottle. Pours black with tan head. Nose was mild. Chewy. Lite sweet followed by bitter chocolate and coffee. NIce balance of bitterness and sweetness. However I would expect a sweet stout to lean more towards the sweet side. I caught a little licorice in the finish. A very good quality beer.

mansquito (5727) - Nueva York, New York, USA - NOV 4, 2007
Pours with a big dark head and a dark, pretty much black, if not totally black, body. There is a definate sweetness in the smell along with chocolate and roasted wonders. Sweet syrupy taste to it with a roasted coffee touch along with a hint of chocolate. Grains noticable as well. Rather good and easy and enjoyable to drink.

Moderate malt and some of it is lightly roasted. Black with a medium palate. I didnt get anything that makes me think of a sweet stout, but there is some oatmeal.

Opaque black with a tight tan head. Nice roasted malt aroma with a dash of chocolate. Flavor is rich and dark: semi-sweet roasted malt with a definite grain/oat presence and some coffee notes. Excellent.

Skyview (5824) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - OCT 24, 2007
Sampled at Badgerbens Cellar Reduction Night. Pours a dark root-beer brown brew with a fast dissolving off-white head that leaves behind a ring and fine film. Aroma of dark roasted malt, some flowery hops, coffee, some smoked oats and a touch of chocolate. Taste is medium to full bodied, very lightly carbonated with some smoked malt and semi-sweet hop character. Finish is semi-sweet, creamy, smooth with a slight dark roasted oatmeal aftertaste.

Opaque body, with a tan head that diminished to just a thin layer. Sporadic lacing. Milk caramel and chocolate chip cookie aroma (after it sat for a couple minutes). Deep, semi-sweet roasted malt flavor initially, and then it quickly transforms into an instant coffee-like bitterness. Average carbonation, smoothness, and weight for the style. Not a bad stout, but I was actually expecting a bit more from this brewer. This is their second-highest rated brew, I do believe, and I have to say that surprises me somewhat.

Bottle via trade with jake65. Vanilla, caramel, warm oatmeal, roasted malt with a tough of hops on the nose. Pours rich black with a creamy brown head. Decent balance of dry hops and sweet creamy chocolaty malt on the palate. Creamy, leaning toward full bodied with lively carbonation. Thanks Jake!

On tap: the beer came off the tap opaque with two fingers of head that settled to a very thin layer on the top. Thinner than more dark beers. aroma was slighted roasted with a couple of bitter elements. Flavor was rather "meh" good but not complex enough. It didnt have the roasted dryness that comes in some stouts (yes even sweet stouts) and it didnt have the bittersweet chocholate, coffee taste that I so enjoy from a dark beer. I guess this beer was a little flabby, it lacked real character, but was drinkable and not offensive. It was weak on stout taste, but had some roasted and matly elements, on top of a clean bitterness. decent palte but it could have been smoother and "creamier". Finished okay with the bitterness becoming a little more apparent.
