On tap @ Mad Mex: Black with a medium dark tan head. Aroma of roasted coffee, and some chocolate. Flavor, coffee, a fruity sweetness, some chocolate, a bittersweet finish. Really nice of draft. Glouglouburp (6103) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 15, 2006
(Tap at Hop Devil) Black body, medium tan head with good retention and excellent lacing. Aroma of toasts and roasted coffee beans. Really nice body full of creamy malts, like I was drinking a cake. Some liquorice/molasses/raisins add to the complexity. An enchanting stout that sounds like a spell from a Harry Potter book. DrBayern (1139) - Morehead City, North Carolina, USA - NOV 13, 2006
Batch 7532, in a trade with Hellomynameis - thanks Zac. Massive brown frothy head, opaque black pour, decent lace. Roasted coffee aroma. Smooth, full body for a very nice mouthfeel. Rich dark roast coffee flavor with hints of dark chocolateunctuated by peppery spice and some citrus zest. Nice dry finish. Very satisfying. ExSpectator (65) - Cleveland, Ohio, USA - NOV 12, 2006
12 oz bottle. Pours black, perhaps not the darkest black i’ve seen a stout, but definitely dark. Very strong aroma of roast, coffee, bitterness, I could smell it from several feet away. Dark malty flavor, chocolate is present. Very good. gavygavgav (7) - Michigan, USA - NOV 11, 2006 does not count
Strong complex aroma of coffee and roast, color is pitch opaque black with brown head. Pours a huge head which leaves good lacing. Bitter chocolate flavor, slightly sweet too. Great aftertaste, wonderful for sipping. Palate is somewhat less than the "creamy" descriptor. A great beer, definitely need to load up on these!

Dark brown appearance. Stong falvors of coffee, a little bitter, but in a good way, roasted toasty notes as well. chocolate and mollassas flavors in aftertaste. binnys (4) - Orland Park, Illinois, USA - NOV 9, 2006 does not count
Great color, great aroma, great taste.....a very good stout. I’m going to be driving to Michigan for this one, now that Bell’s is no longer distributed here in Illinois. tomciccateri (1034) - Albuquerque, New Mexico, USA - NOV 7, 2006
12-ounce brown bottle. Opaque very dark brown color with a thick dark lasting tan head and lace. Incredibly rich chocolatey aroma. Medium-bodied with a very full mouthfeel. Creamy. Dark malt dominate the flavor, especially chocolate, and it finishes slightly dry, more toasted than roasted. Big on flavors but not on alcohol kick. Impressive! masonjer (609) - Holt, Michigan, USA - NOV 7, 2006
Bottle. Really, a very good straight forward stout. Very roasty, with a thin tan head. A classic stout that I would drink anytime. Very good. rayg1 (594) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - NOV 6, 2006
Now this was some good stuff, split this with ross, Thanks man. Aged almost a full year and awesome. Pours a dark brown almost black with a small dark brown head. Tastes roasted and chocolatey like any good stout should didn’t taste the caramel as much but its still great. This brewrey has never dissapointed me.
