DavidP (1748) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - APR 4, 2006
Dark brown body. Dry aroma - roast and dry chocolate. Peppermint, lime, light cherry in the flavor finishing with a light woody char. Decent stuff.

pivnizub (10454) - Bochum, Porř, GERMANY - MAR 31, 2006
Bottle: Almost black, small, but firm brownish head; sweet (dark) malt in the nose, molasses and chocolate, imaginary traces of old rum (!); sweet chocolatey flavour; sweetish, fruity (vinous) finish with a bit longer lasting chocolatey bitterness, warming. Not bad, but a bit too much on the sweet side.......

Tobias10 (99) - London, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - MAR 28, 2006
Very sickly sweet, its a nice malty sweet though. Its looks nice, with a really deep colour and an off white head. Couldnt drink more than a couple of bottles though.

Ughsmash (7508) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 27, 2006
Bottled. Poured a deep iced tea brown with a tall cap of beige head. Very light roast to the aroma, which was comprised primarily of light fruits, weak oak, and an array of dark sugars. Flavor was similar, but picked up semi-sweet chocolate, too. Light-medium body and fairly smooth on the palate.. some sour notes in there. Just OK.

1FastSTi (3360) - Glendale, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 26, 2006
The beer pours to a red/brown hued body with a thin tan head. The aroma is sweet light chocolate chips. The flavor is really sweet chocolate malt. The palate is overly sweet.

puzzl (3258) - New York, New York, USA - MAR 25, 2006
Aroma starts out with a blast of coffee then hints of soy sauce and general sweetness. Slightly roasty in the mouth with a round, sour-fruit sweetness that tastes kind of off. Palate is a bit thin for the style.

StueyD (1579) - Heacham, Norfolk, ENGLAND - MAR 21, 2006
A dark brown coffee colour with a weak, creamy brown head. A strong malty nose with a hint of caramel and a touch of liquorice. A refreshingly light malt flavour for a beer of such high alcohol. A slight citrusy tang, but with a sweet smoothness to finish

raymow (1565) - Bensalem, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 23, 2006
Pours a nice deep dark reddish black. Has a nice flavor with a bit of alcohol presence which is also in the sweet aroma. Very nice stout.

Diogne (1207) - Mirabel, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 14, 2006
UPDATED: MAR 2, 2006 Pours a dark brown, almost black with a thick and not lasting beige head. Chocolate and toffee aroma with a subtle presence of alcohol. Liquorice, chocolate and roasted malt taste, quite sweet overall. Subtle notes of coffee and blackberries. Not my favorite stout but really drinkable and nothing wrong with it.

gilvanblight (823) - Windsor, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 1, 2006
UPDATED: AUG 8, 2007 Re-rated after 4 years of better beer drinking. Very black pour, thick lacy foamy head. Earthy scent with some malts. Taste of tomato, bitter alcohol and raisin. Very early but somewhat sweet. Bit of an alcohol aftertaste.
