Aroma is of a rich cup of coffee, A hint of roasted malt. Touch of vanilla and a slight hint of chocolate. Smell made my mouth water.... smells delicious! Poured a black with a very small and fast dissipating tan head. Very, very light lacing on Pint. Flavor is of rich coffee, light touch of vanilla, light hint of dark chocolate, slightly bitter roasted malt ending in a rich coffee.Very pleasant! taste. Not overpowering, but very nice! Body is medium, a creamy texture, soft carbonation, with a short, pleasantly bitter finish. I’m not usually a big fan of coffee dominated stouts, but this is well done! I really enjoyed this Stout and will definitely drink again. The only thing wrong with this fine brew is the very soft carbonation and the lack of a great head on it. But, the excellent taste and balance of this Stout more than makes up for it. Not in my favorite rotation, but will definitely drink this often! Give it a try! Its worth the experience!

Thanks dra19. The color was dark chocolate. The head was thick, fizzy, and medium tan. The aroma was coffee malt, roast, citris, sweet malt, and chocolate. The flavor was coffee, citris, tart, and roast. The palate was average. The finish was clean. emacgee (4698) - Chapel Hill, North Carolina, USA - DEC 13, 2007
Thanks dra19. Pours a dark thin brew with a profuse creamy tan head. Acted bottle conditioned. The head broke down incredibly easily. The aroma is roasty, coffee, chocolate, swirling releases a lot of carbonation. The flavor is smooth, roasty, kind of sour, coffee, a bit thin in the mouth, sweet, has some interesting qualities. The palate is a bit thin and very carbonated. Interesting brew, I enjoyed it. dsm (109) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - DEC 10, 2007
sample at brewpub. Pours solid black. Tastes of coffee beans and roasted malts. Not bad, but a little thin. Styles (2014) - Lincoln Park, Michigan, USA - NOV 27, 2007

Bitter sour thin flat still coffe-laden liquid resembling beer. Aroma is all coffee that’s been laying on the heating element too long. Unfortunately not good. zathrus13 (1776) - Mount Laurel, New Jersey, USA - NOV 15, 2007

wow. lots of carbonation in this bottle. maybe shouldve sat even longer. ive had it in the cellar for 2 months. a mild coffee scent. pour even looked a little watery. taste is also a little watery compared to others. nice dark color however. pretty good, wouldn’t go out of my way to get it again. sliffy (2040) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - NOV 1, 2007
Bottle: Pours a dark brown with a very small tan head. Aroma, roasty, coffee, chocolate, earthy. Flavor, roasted coffee notes, some chocolate, dry roasty finish. There is some buttery notes, it’s on the thin side as well.
