lumpsowers (287) - Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, USA - NOV 24, 2009
Motor oil pour, low head and lace. Smokey, bready aroma. Bitter malty flavor,with a wheaty bready mouth, and a lot of chocolatey bitter coffee flavors. Medium carb, thick, smokey roasted soy and worcestershire sauce. Lots of chocolate, like a milkshake. Some alcohol comes in at the end. Woody, biscuity, just a hint of worcestershire sauce. Outstanding.

Will pour a five+ finger light tan head that fades quickly to a thin layer, leaving some lace. Black color no highlights. Light-medium carbonation and medium-heavy bodied. Light chocolate nose. Flavor is roasted chocolate, somewhat sweet. Dry finish. $4.99 for a 500ml bottle from Manchester Wine and Liquors Manchester, CT.

patrick767 (4038) - fort wayne, Indiana, USA - NOV 13, 2009
bottle - Pours near black with a nice tan head. The aroma is of roast malt and chocolate malt. It has a robust roast chocolate malt flavor with hints of coffee. Its not too sweet and overall is a good, flavorful, easy drinking stout.

ansermadide (1526) - Kyle, Texas, USA - NOV 12, 2009
This fabulous stout holds a great, light brown, frothy head... Holds it shape very well. Color black and solid. Unmistakable roasted, almost smoky and woody chocolate aroma. Flavor is also unique: expands on the roasted aroma with a smooth chocolate finish. Possible coffee undertones with a bitter presence. This is a great beer!

Black in color with a large beige head. Aroma is of toffee, toast, roasted malts, peat, coffee, and chocolate. Taste is of roasted malts, chocolate, dark fruit and driftwood.

TBone (16438) - Pori, FINLAND - NOV 4, 2009
Bottled (BB 10/2010, @Kaisla)
Dark brown color, creamy brown head, some lace. Sticky, a bit sour milky lactose aroma, some mild chocolate. Flavor is a bit similar, sweet milky, some lactose, light sourness, chocolate or cocoa, roasted malts in the finish. Very milk stout -like. Flavors are not very intensive, so it is a bit bland despite of being powerful 7%.

tripelthreat (190) - Soquel, California, USA - OCT 31, 2009
Bottle. Deep dark brown body topped with a tan head. Aroma is honey sweet with mild chocolate and a little coffee. Flavor is chocolate, some coffee, sweet raisin and other dark fruit, and roast but none of it is very intense. Medium mouthfeel with bitterness and too much sweet dark fruit in the finish. Okay.

danielcurtis81 (1519) - San Diego, California, USA - OCT 30, 2009
Served from a bottle from K&B. The appearance is a deep brown black with a small disappointing light brown head. Nose is rich with rich roasted malt, coffee bean, and bakers chocolate. The flavors range from roasted/burnt malt, tootsie roll chocolate, dirty tones, burnt coffee grinds, hard candy. A decent stout.

500. Pours nearly jet black with a dense, creamy, towering tan mousse up top. Tons of foamy lace coming down the sides. Mild, sweet, chalky, chocolatey nose. Creamy medium body, almost kinda light. Chalky, chocolatey mid-palate with a mild finish. This is one of those beers that makes you wonder if youre not putting a proper yeomans effort into the rating notes, because any well-made beer ought to offer more complexity than this. But this one really does tell its whole story with just a simple, clean, straight-up few flavor/aroma notes. It does them well, but, really, it could stand a bit more complexity. As it is, its a rather humdrum little stout that, still, is entirely without flaw.

drpimento (3280) - La Crosse, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 30, 2009
got this bottle a couple of months ago at Surdyks in Minneapolis. Poured with a big, foamy, fine frothy, tan head that lasted a while and a little lace. Color is an opaque brownish black. Aroma is chocolate, malty, and sweet, but not much roastiness. Flavor is very similar. Not a lot of depth. Mouth is very soft with good carbonatioin. A little alcohol in the finish. Easy drinking beer. Little too sweet for me though
