The score was calculated based upon the notes and an old scoring system.
Should be listed as a dry stout. Hard to discern aroma (at brewery). Pours a clear very dark brown with a large creamy head. Comes off very smooth with incredible malt support from a style that rarley has such a thing. Taste and finish is dominated by roasted/burnt flavors, I'm guessing from chocolate malts (?). Certainly not the best beer from Full Sail (we all know what THAT one is!) but quite unique within its style. Crit (4024) - Surrey, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 4, 2002
This is one of the Full Sail products tjhat suffered badly since they had their malting troubles in 97. My figures are pre 97 for the original. Gusler (2653) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - DEC 28, 2000
A good stout, more or less a beginners stout. Decent nose and a fine finish. Quite drinkable, especially if your not into the Imperials or Guinness.
