Ernest (7509) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - OCT 17, 2004
UPDATED: MAR 14, 2009 Bottle. Head is initially large, frothy, brown, mostly lasting. Body is black (non-opaque, flashlight tested). Aroma is moderately malty (roasted grain, chocolate, burnt coffee), lightly hoppy (grapefruit). Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly to moderately bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly acidic, moderately to heavily bitter, husky. Medium to full body, watery/velvety texture, lively carbonation, lightly alcoholic. Rather roughly bitter, not much fun to drink. Ok aroma, nice appearance and mouthfeel. Forgettable.

JaBier (7394) - Capital City, Ohio, USA - OCT 25, 2008
Sampled at the stout tasting at Blacklick Wine & Spirits on 10/13/08. Pours pitch black with a huge head. Strong coffee aroma with some malty quality. Flavor is an excellent dry balance with a coffee/chocolate finish. Wonderful stout. Between this and the 76 IPA, these guys are definitely an underrated brewery.

FROTHINGSLOSH (7288) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 12, 2016
UPDATED: OCT 14, 2016 Sampled on draft at the brewpub this beer poured a black color with a large foamy dark tan head that lingered and left minimal lacing. The aroma was dryish with coffee, wood and smoke. The flavor was semi dry with wood, brewed coffee, a bit of roasty malts, cream and a hint of smoke. Long finish. Moderately full bodied and smooth. Fairly well made but not my style.

CaptainCougar (7133) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - MAY 15, 2003
Pours a thick black with a small ring of light brown foam. Mellow roasted and smokey aroma. Dry, crisp, almost smokey flavor with carbonation dissolved deep in the thick body. Pretty good dry stout with lots of character.

5000 (6862) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - AUG 30, 2005
Bottle: Nearly black, very minor brown tint on the edges, moderate dark beige frothy head, very nice lacing. Heavy roasted malt nose, burnt actually, with a slight coffee tinge. Semi-sweet on the tongue, quite roasty, moderate hop & malt mixture that is very well balanced. Nothing dominates, which is nice. Quite smooth, body is fairly big, moderate to full mouthfeel. Clean roasted malt finish. Seems fairly standard, but it is rather solid. Thanks Dan!

BuckeyeBoy (6762) - Boise, Idaho, USA - DEC 7, 2008
Bottle Pours out a nice black topped with a tan head. Aroma of sweet roast and some light coffee. Tast of rich malts, bitter chocolate and some coffee. Not to bad.

BBB63 (6557) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - JUN 3, 2004
Opaque with large frothy brown head and very good lace. The aroma has notes of floral and grassy hops, mocha and coffee, dusty yeast esters, smoky and dark malts, and some tart fruits. The flavor is surprising, lots of grapefruit and bitters, on top of mocha and malty undertones. Some smoky and nutty tones on the finish. The mouthfeel is full for style with a crisp bite on finish. This stout does not fit any style, too bitter for a sweet, too malty for a dry, and not enough punch for an Imperial..but still quite YUMMY! Almost the stout equal to Three Floyds Alpha Klaus.

Beerman6686 (6543) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 5, 2009
This poured almost black with a big lgiht tan head. Aroma was pretty sweet and chocolatey for a stout. Flavor was silky and smooth chocolate, but a bit too sweet for me, not much roastyness to it at all.

Pailhead (6539) - Plymouth, Michigan, USA - OCT 23, 2004
On tap: Aroma is malty with coffee, chocolate and light hops. Dark brown, virtually black with a small tan head. Flavor begins with a lot of coffee and a real interesting smoked flavor in the background. As I drink the smoke almost disappears and is overtaken by some strong grapefruit hops. Much hoppier than most stouts. Slight coffee and moderately hoppy aftertaste.
