Nice dark color. A lot of roasted coffee smell in this one. Tastes very creamy with some hops, rye, coffee, chocolate and toffee. Goes down smooth with a nice sweet/bitter after taste. stoutchap (423) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAY 11, 2006
Dark brown. A little liight and carbonated. Nice coffee and roasted malt in the nose which continues into the mouth, along with the characteristic chocolat. Palate too light for style. Odd - it is better cold than warm - unusual for a stout. spclerk (47) - Minnesota, USA - MAY 10, 2006
12 oz bottle pours extremely dark opaque brown, almost black. Huge tan head hangs around a while, but not too long. Lots of lacing down the glass. Roast malt and coffee aroma. Lots of coffee and some bitter chocolate in the taste. Complex, some flavours going on I can’t exactly describe (maybe black liquorice??). Not too sweet but not exactly dry either. Nice creamy mouthfeel. Long roasted finish, not too bitter. Really good stout. SledgeJr (3577) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - MAY 5, 2006
In the bottle. Dark brown head, but a thin head. Has a phenomenal aroma of roasted coffee. The flavor is a strong thick rich dry roasted malt. Tasty with a medium coffee and lightly chocolated flavor. I think I need to try this fresh on tap someday to fully appreciate it. stoutlvr (52) - Lansing, Michigan, USA - MAY 5, 2006
Pours very dark. Aroma is coffee with chocolate subtleties. Thought it was a tad to spritzy, but an all around good drink none the less.

really dark. excellent mixture of coffee,chocolate aroma. great roasted malt flavor with loads of coffee and chocolate. very creamy and thought it would be heavier on the tongue. Stout lovers must give this a try biggcb (464) - Harleysville, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 5, 2006
Pretty much pours as dark as dark gets. Moderate creamy tan head. Aroma is full bodied malty good ness, with some chocolate and coffee!! Roasted malts, coffee and chocolate abound in the flavor. Very creamy and very smooth. A must try. mybrainhurts (397) - North Dakota, USA - MAY 4, 2006
Rich dark pour with a thin brownish head. Aroma is stout and inviting. Chocolate and roasted coffee in the nose. Flavors of bitter chocolate, strong coffee, dark caramel, and finishes heavy and thick. A full bodied brew and very delicious. zsb19 (168) - Cincinnati, Kentucky, USA - MAY 2, 2006
Bottle - Pours deep dark brown with thin tan head. Aroma is roasted malty chocolate and coffee. Mouthfeel is a little thinner than I expected. Bitter coffee flavor with a hint of sweetness on the finish. I was expecting a bit more from the flavor after savoring the aroma for a while, but still a very nice stout.

This is a tasty stout. Lots of dark roasted malts on the nose and almost a hint of meatiness. Flavor is mocha-like with a long, long finish.
