Aroma has bitter chocolate with lots of over-roasted coffee, some creamyness. Dark black color with a big reddish brown head. Flavor is chocolately and bitter, nice thick mouthfeel. Radek Kliber (7483) - Toronto (Can) Krotoszyn (Pol), POLAND - SEP 4, 2004
Dark brown, average head that vanished rather quickly.
Aroma of dark, organic, deep, fine grained coffee. Great mouthfeel, coffee is everywhere here. Dark malts, cocoa, and hops made this even more interesting! Nice.

not my favorite stout. loads of coffee, alcohol well hidden. seemed like it wanted to be a speedway, but has a long way to go. probably wont do more then the 6’er i bought. shadey (2166) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - AUG 28, 2004
I poured this from a 12 oz bottle thanks to Robertsreality. The aroma was all dark roasted coffee. The flavor matched. Quite a tastey stout. crzybob77 (530) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - AUG 27, 2004
Dark black color as expected. Coffee aroma. Taste is creamy coffee with some bitterness. A pretty good beer.

Black w/ thin, frothy light brown head. Huge aroma of coffee, fruit (cherries, pears), chicory, & a hint of smoke. Full-bodied chewy feel. Complex flavour of roasted coffee, green coffee bean, bitter chocolate & dark fruit. Also as a nice earthy hoppiness to it. DougShoemaker (3146) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 22, 2004
Roasted coffee and chicory aroma, deepest brown, pours a large, short lived cappuccino head. Roasted coffee/cappuccino are the dominant flavours, full bodied, bitter as can be. Marvellous!
Thanks joey_capps. piscator34 (2647) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - AUG 22, 2004
Jet black with strong aromas of espresso and roasted barley. The espresso flavor dominates this beer, but it has an over-roasted quality that makes it a bit astringent. It’s heavy body makes up for the coffee bitterness. A good attempt at this style, but needs some refinement in my opinion. TJackHole (83) - Alabama, USA - AUG 20, 2004
extremely tasty stout. Perfect balance between rich chocolate and coffee tastes combined with bitterness and thick stout finish. Eyedrinkale (3235) - Astoria, New York, USA - AUG 16, 2004
Bells just keeps climbing the carts in my opinion. This stuff is as good as any stout I’ve had. Perfectly balanced with hops, coffee and chocolate swimming in one pool of goodness.
