Pours an ultra rich dark black with a thick chocolate color head. Flavor is complex with hints of Carmel and toffee. This is a definitely a most for any stout fan.

roomtempbeer (185) - Franklin, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 19, 2003
UPDATED: MAY 17, 2004 Beer pours (in Chimay glass) a dark, solid black liquid that when held up to light, can not be seen through with a small to medium sized, light caramel colored head that dissipates quickly to near nothing. Aroma is a deeply rich, lightly burned coffee with a lightly sweet caramel tone. Flavor is exactly the same as the aroma. Absolutely NO hop flavor detected - a big plus. Palate is so smooth, I thought I was drinking Militec-1. No alcohol flavor detected - yet this beer warms the belly somehow. An absolute victory - WOW!! This beer is outstanding, incredible, and can be sipped or quaffed in mouthfuls with no restraint. The only thing this beer is missing is a longer lasting, good looking head - otherwise perfect. Sampled at 71 degrees Fahrenheit.

extremely pleasant and mild stout with a robust presence. Quite enjoyable, not trying to be something extra like so many stouts, just exceptionally excellent, which it is.

From the bottle, pours a lovely dark black with a nice tab head. Aroma's are chocolate, black licorice, roasted espresso. Slight creamy aspect on the palate, sweet, bold & pleasantly bitter. Nice stout. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

This was an unusual looking stout for me as the generous head produced, even with a careful pour, appeared to be a brown oatmeal sponge. The distinct coffee aroma invited my first taste to find the almost grainy medium body was easy to drink. The sweet aftertaste was present as an occasional sense of wateryness.

Bottle pours black with a retentive brown head. Aroma is sweet caramel malt. Tastes like a sweet stout, sugary malts, a bit of coffee.

BiochemProf (179) - Boone, North Carolina, USA - OCT 20, 2011
Thick inky black pour with a massive tan head. Aroma of chocolate and malt (coffee, toffee). Faint whiff of hops. Rich flavor of chocolate, toffee, mocha with a hint of caramel sweetness followed by a nice bitter finish. Thick and chewy mouthfeel but with fairly high creamy carbonation level. An outstanding stout!

Gpnterojd (179) - Waterloo, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 13, 2007
UPDATED: APR 30, 2008 Pours black with beige head. Light, fishy aroma -- salmony. Roasted malts. The flavour is very strong on the malts, with toasted malts and some alcohol. Licorice. Rye bread. Reminiscent of a barleywine. A nice, lasting sour malt finish. Medium bodied.

12/28/05 bottle @ The Ginger Man. Poured a medium brown creamy head and a jet black color. Great malts good strong mocha flavor and nose. Very carbonated which was very surprising to me. Very crunchy and ntty from start to finish. Palate was great really held flavors roasts and malts for a good amount of time. This and Blue Point Oatmeal stout are the two bes I have had.
