I've had this 3 times. The first and third time, I thought this was a thick rich, tasty beer. The 2nd time I thought it was slightly above average.

UPDATED: MAR 21, 2010 I owe Gusler big for sending me this brew. Nice smooth body, although its kind of light for a stout. Rich espresso/mocha flavors are really highlighted by a bottle-conditioned twang. Is there some vanilla in there? Remarkably drinkable for a stout with such a high alcohol content at 8.0%. Everytime I drink it, I’m impressed all over again. I’m going to say it: this is the best stout I’ve ever had.

ReRate: the more I sample this beer, the better it is. Thankfully it’s available all the time at Total Wines now, so it’s a permanent fixture in my fridge.

This is the best stout in the world, and a Top 5 beer on my list.

Not bad. Not the godly brew it claims to be. Nice roasted cocoa flavors but a slightly sour aftertaste. Travelled far so maybe that does it. Not a fave.

I was disappointed after all
the hype! It's certainly good,
but not superior.

Outstanding. Chocolatey and bitter. Plenty of roasted barley flavor. Nicely dark with full head. Rich aroma.

A nice Spring Beer. The taste and palate of a stout without a sweetness or heavyness more appropriate to cold weather.

Gusler (2652) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - DEC 10, 2000
A first for me a 'Tropical Stout', lighter in body and not so harsch. Great nose, vanilla, chocolate, and a bit of the hops at the finish. Quite good and a 8.0 ABV, mild but pleasing.

4.2
Oakes (19010) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 18, 2000
dense, rocky head. Sweet, fruity nose. Complex, malty - vanilla and coffee; creamy palate; light notes of raisins and plums. Exquisite.
