Very dark brown body with red accents topped with a medium thick to thick head with good lace. Sweet malty aroma with slight fruity hoppy accents. Slightly sweet malt flavor with fruity accents and a touch of coffee. Full bodied and smooth.

This beer poured a nice dark reddish brown, almost black color with an off white colored head that lasted faintly throughout the beer. The taste was roasty, with hints of coffee, and what I assume is chicory. A very good stout, almost as thin as a porter, but still an absolute outstanding beer. Seek this beer out and enjoy as it is one of the very best porter/stouts that I have come across.

Nothing bad about this beer but not that special either. Weak head and aftertaste. Bland flavor and pretty syrupy.

rodolito (163) - San Diego, California, USA - JAN 23, 2003
Rich coffee and roasted barley aroma with some chocolate notes as it warmed. A blackish color (ruby when lighted from behind) with a medium thickness tannish white head that was short lived. Sweet, roasted flavors with lots of coffee and some chicory. A light bitterness and acidity. Too thin for my tastes but enjoyed drinking it.

1/19/03: bottle. small head, eventually pretty flat looking, with no real lacing. dark- brown to black color. light coffee smell with small hints of hops and even cinnamon. coffee flavors with some chocolate and bitter tones. i was hoping to notice more evidence of chicory.

bender (293) - Reynoldsburg, Ohio, USA - JAN 19, 2003
Deep brown color with a thin but persistent tan head.
Smells like coffee and alcohol (isopropyl).
Malty and big considering the OG. Maltiness at first with a coffee finish.
Nicely carbonated but prickly on the tongue.

Brewso (238) - Mt Kisco, New York, USA - JAN 19, 2003
This stout uses coffee from Oby Lee- a wonderful roaster. You get a full taste of the coffee right from the start and it builds promisingly. Unfortunately it ends weakly and with disappointing body. Where did that great beginning go?

UPDATED: NOV 17, 2007 This is a pretty decent brew. My first from this brewery and it is unique. A little on the lighter side, yet is still had a chocolaty taste and a smooth, yet dry, finish.

The bottle says "beneath a bone white head" well, either bones aren't the same color as I thought or I had a bad bottle because my head was pretty tan. Mostly diminishing head. Dark coffee color. Chocolatey in the begining followed by a woody/smokey middle followed by a coffee/acidic/bitter finish. This stout unrolls like a red carpet to movie premier along your tongue. Good complexity. I don't typically like stouts, but this was a pleasant surprise.
