Nuffield (4130) - Roseville, Minnesota, USA - MAY 13, 2007
I had this for with dinner on a lovely May evening in Minnesota. It hit all the expected spots, not brilliantly but nicely. Deep black, moderate lacing. Roasted and rather rich aroma and front, tame middle, some suggestions of roasted malt but not deep in the sense of chocolate. Moderate finish, not especially hoppy (which is good in my stouts). Average bottled palate. Good, solid drinker.

Cornfield (5570) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - MAY 10, 2007
This pours a very dark mahogany body with a creamy, light cocoa head. Good lacing. The aroma is chocolatey with a fair amount of roasted malt. Medium-bodied, it tastes of bittersweet chocolate, roasted malt with a bit of barley, and a light touch of weak coffee. Some hop bitterness is detectable near the finish, balancing the ale out nicely. Pretty decent.

thebaldwizard (1206) - Ohio, USA - MAY 4, 2007
Aroma of chocolate, coffee and cigarette ash. Black appearance with a medium head. Thin palate. The flavor is a decent amount of bitter chocolate, and thats about it. This is very easy to drink.

beermaniac (86) - Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 3, 2007
Aroma: Pleasant roastiness with hints of chocolate, otherwise clean. Appearance: Low head retention, jet black. Opaque. Flavor: Roastiness, but not overdone. Some hop also presents itself in the finish. Would like a little more roast maybe, and no real chocolate flavor stands out. Palate: Lower carbonation, however with very smooth and medium-high body makes this very easy-drinking. I feel a little more carbonatin would bring out the taste and aroma a little better however. Overall: Solid stout, nothing too flashy but a good stout.

muenster (345) - Sevierville, Tennessee, USA - APR 30, 2007
Bottle. Pours dark black with a medium sized tan head. Aroma is dark chocolate, sweet cream, roasty malts, and teriyaki sauce. Flavor is full of chocolate, smoke, coffee grounds and a bitter finish. Mouthfeel is a bit thin, not so much that it ruins the beer, just enough to motivate me to comment about it.
