On tap at the brewpub. Pours a pure black color with a medium white head. A strong roasted malt nose, light sweeter chocolates. The flavor is dominated by a nice aggressive roasted flavor, dry and quite nice. Enjoyable, I could drink a ton of this. BuckeyeBoy (7510) - Boise, Idaho, USA - OCT 7, 2007

On tap at the brewpub BückDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - NOV 6, 2003
Appearance: Black with a nice tan head
Aroma: Roasted malts, smokey, chocolate
Taste: Very smooth on the palate.
Pours black with ruby edges of a filtered stout. The head is impressive with dark tan hues and good lacing until the end of the glass. The aroma is full of hops and chocolates, dark fruits; raisin, cherry, plum. Flavor is initially lightly bitter from the large amounts of bittering hops in this stout but finishes with a terrific roasted coffee essence. The mouthfeel stings a bit for a stout, very dry finish, slightly astringant. This was a good stout from a solid local brewpub, lots of bitter hops and dark fruits dominate this beer with a foundation of traditional stout flavors.

On tap at the brewpub w/Gyruke. Deep dark black color with a creamy brown head. The flavor is everything the aroma promises and more, with its thick roasted malt/chocolate flavors. Very Good

Nitro tap at the brewpub. Dark brown with ruby glow, velvety smooth creamy head. Body not overly thick and chewy, but fairly slick. Roasty flavor without being overly bitter. Appearance and feel GI a long way with this brew IndianaRed (4544) - Boise, Idaho, USA - APR 9, 2005
Tap Very dark but clear with a nice modest crealmy tan head and even sheeting lacing. Aroma is quite mild. Light smokey dark malts. Flavor is subtle as well. Dark pitted fruits and grapes are involved but nothing jumps out at you. I wouldn’t say borning, but not special either. I thought the body was a bit thin. Finishes clean with the expected bitterness at the end. jake65 (3592) - Meridian, Idaho, USA - MAR 10, 2006
Pours a dark brown, almost black with an ample tan head. Aroma was a bit strong at first, but pleasant of roasted maltiness. Tastes of malts, roastiness, and a decent bitterness. Creamy, yet thin on the body. Overall, it was good, but not great/ harlequinn (2744) - Tacoma, Washington, USA - AUG 28, 2003
Yawn! A very typical boring stout, that tastes just like every other stout out there. YOur typical, coffee and chocolate flavorings are present, but this one cannot decide if it wants to be a porter or a stout. Creamy and rich, but vague.
