there was a bit of hype surrounding this stout here in Tucson, but Iím afraid that this brew didnít quite live up... it is pleasant enough tho, with its robust, bitter chocolate flavo RCL (2030) - Waltham, Massachusetts, USA - AUG 28, 2007
I really enjoy this beer. Itís a bit simple and a little thin, but it is really pleasant to drink. Light roast aroma and sweet malty flavor. Itís a bit like chocolate skim milk. I could drink tubs of this. lovemyipas (544) - nw burbs, Illinois, USA - AUG 27, 2007
pours black with a huge three finger fluffy dark brown head. aroma is caramel and chocolate malt and oats with caramel, chocolate, and a little coffee characteristics. has a medium to full body with descent lacing that follows the liquid and just right on the carbonation. flavor is the same as aroma with the coffee coming out a bit more. it is sticky, sweet, and a little creamy. it is a little thin here and there for a stout but not bad. also as it warms some of the hops come out to play aroma and flavor wise. and there is a touch of smoke in the aftertaste. unrulythings (73) - Bend, Oregon, USA - AUG 26, 2007
aroma full of caramel and malt. light on the palate. slightly sweet of chocolate and coffee at first, followed by a bittersweet, dark chocolate finish. lovely sweet stout. DAYtheELF (7) - Seattle, Washington, USA - AUG 23, 2007 does not count
Pours dark with medium, creamy head. Has a deep, smooth taste that goes right down. An exceptional stout in bottle and on tap.

12 oz bottle. Poured a deep dark brown color. Not much light came through. Head was thick and light brown with decent retention and lacing. Aroma was of milk chocolate and light roasted malt. Slightly sweet on the tongue with a smooth, full bodied mouth feel. Tasted of chocolate up front followed by a hint of coffee and burnt stick. Pretty good.

I have grown to find other stouts, but this is the one that I grew up on. On tap at Fatherís Office in Santa Monica circa 1995. Boontalicious! jtw (1163) - farmington, Michigan, USA - AUG 12, 2007
22 oz bottle, pours black with a tan head. sweet chocolate aroma, a bit of roasted barley in excellent balance with oat and other starchy grains. foremost itís sweet with coffee, toast, roast, and little alcohol. body is full and creamy - this is an excellent beer, would line up well with kalamazoo stout. bubbleflubber (2211) - Swannanoa, North Carolina, USA - JUL 28, 2007
Sweet and easy drinking. This has a beautiful dark brownish-black pour... a huge chocolate mousse head leaves chunky lace. The nose has wheat, oats, roasted grains and mocha/milk chocolate notes. Sweet grain and chocolates to the tongue... light on the palate, but decently bodied... a creamy mouthfeel with great carbonation levels to add the perfect amount of crispness. The finish is indeed bittersweet, without bittering too much as to contrast the rest of the pull. Nice integration here, from beginning to end. This is a linear pull that leads from the front- to back-palates very well. Great example of the style! 505 (271) - Echo Park, California, USA - JUL 22, 2007
This was the first stout I ever really got into way back when. Pours dark with a small tan head. Aroma is roasty, flavors are definitely describable as bittersweet and roasty. Pretty good, not what it used to be for me, but enjoyable nonetheless.
