Bottle from Hannaford Exeter NH. Aroma is resin, herbs, cereal, bread, dough. Appearance is thick, creamy beige head with decent retention and fluffy lacing. Color is deep, dark reddish-brown, virtually black. Taste is roasted bitterness balanced with sweet. Palate is decadent, thick, creamy texture, medium to full bodied with enough carbonation to give it backbone but is restrained and doesn’t call attention to itself. Finish is pleasantly long and mildly bitter. Overall, this beer is a delight to all senses and is satisfying in every way.

Cdog (32) - Farmington, Michigan, USA - FEB 12, 2005
A wonderful jet black ale, with some brown highights make this beer very differnt. The soff-white colored head on top of the very dark liquid is quite attractive. The aroma of coffee & chocolate hit the nose as well This is a very full body stout and not for the week. The balance of hops to malt with just a touch of rey make it top notch.
