typical smooth american sweet stout. thick and slightly lactic with a hint of spearmint. just would have liked some more roast flavours to complement the velvet texture wnp22 (698) - Toronto (Roncesvalles Village), Ontario, CANADA - JUN 20, 2004
Tasted in NYC. Tasted at the Heartland brewpub. Dark black colour, small white head. Aroma is of licorice and burnt caramel. The consistency is thin though. fly (1486) - austin, Tejas, Texas, USA - JUN 1, 2004
Thin, sweet and after the diappointment provided by the other beers gave me all that I needed to hit the door. If they make decent beer here, I only wish I had found it. JoeM500 (1908) - Crown Point, Indiana, USA - JUN 1, 2004
Run of the mill sweet stout, every brewpub has one (only Duneland can ruin one). Sweet and chocolatey, some dryness at the finish. Be safe and order one to go alongside your taster set, you’ll thank me later. Mads Langtved (2243) - Copenhagen K, DENMARK - MAY 21, 2004
No oatmeal in this one. Very burnt and coffe alike. A bit like a light version of the mighty Limfjordsporter! Very creamy head. One of the better stouts in NYC brewpubs.

Tap at the Chophouse... Poured a dark brown/reddish color with a small tan head and a little lacing. Aroma of anise, black licorice, roasted malt, coffee and chocolate. Taste of chocolate and coffee, a little sweet licorice with a creamy mouthfeel. This certainly lived up to the hype. Eyedrinkale (3214) - Astoria, New York, USA - MAY 10, 2004
More roasted malt aroma than anything else. Decent bitter chocolate taste thats both dry and sweet. The one beer these guys make (that I had) that’s worth drinking. Save the $14.50 taster price and just get a pint or 2 of this. mawgspawn (8) - New York, New York, USA - APR 19, 2004 does not count
Heartland Brewey @ Union Square on Tap. With an almost black appearance with blood red highlights, i thought this was going to be a thick concoction, but i was very pleasently suprised. WIth a pleasent chocolate coffee aroma, it has a very smooth rich flavor, suprisingly bright for a stout in my experience. Sits on your tongue a moment not doing anything, then you get hit with chocolate and coffee, and a pleasent hazelnut aftertaste. Not being a Stout fan myself, i was suprised at how much i liked this one, and rated it my favorite of all the Heartland Brewery beers. Shadrach (176) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - APR 13, 2004
On tap at Union Square. Flavor was very complex. Swallows very smooth and then kicks in on the tongue and at the back of the throat and then mellows and lasts a long time. Started out with a taste of chocolate and then a strong taste chichory and then finished with the mellow coffee at the end. Nose was chocolately and had an italian coffee espresso aroma to it. Poured a dark brown with some red and orange highlights. HopasaurusRex (195) - Glen Ellyn, Illinois, USA - APR 7, 2004
On Tap @ Times Square location. Looking at the ratings here, I must've had a bad batch-could've been the first bit out of the tap for the day as it was early. I thought it was awful. Seemed infected and not enjoyable at all. Couldn't finish the sample I paid $2 for ($2!!!) Coupled with the rude service, I wouldn't go back.
