If I wanted to, I could choke this down and probably end up enjoying it. However, it's a little too dark for my taste and the flavor is rather overpowering.

Wonderful stout. Flavor profile is intense and complex. A bit too carbonated, but thats my only complaint. Truly classic.

12 oz bottle. Had it before, finally got around to rating it. Pours a dark black with a half finger high tan head that slightly dissipates. Smells of chocolate, bits of roasted coffee. Tastes of roasted chocolate, with hints of what I think is espresso (not coffee). Goes down pretty smooth and has a good taste in your mouth afterwards. My favorite inexpensive stout.

Now this is one dark beer. Completely opaque with a thick creamy head that’s darker than most beers. Chicory, toasted malt, raisin, dark chocolate aromas. Full bodied. Smooth caramel, coffee flavour with an odd grape aftertaste. Very tasty. Cheers!

Bottle. Pours a deep black-brown with a thick tan head. Aroma of alcohol, coffee, and chocolate. The flavor is very smoky, with bourbon distinctly noticeable. A nice blend of malts. Good mouthfeel. An odd but quite good stout.

Fevernova (222) - Willoughby, Ohio, USA - JAN 13, 2010
21.1 oz Bottle -- Pours black with tan head. Buckwheat, maple syrup, coco, and some slight coffee. Nice sweetness that is not overpowering or sticky. Rather light in body for a stout of this abv.

sunnyridge (222) - USA - JUN 6, 2010
Very nice stout. Pours a cool jet black and decent 1 finger head. The aroma is of bitter chocolate and a slight coffee undertone. The flavor is full of bitter chocolate and some malt. A great and very underated stout.

UPDATED: JAN 18, 2009 this beer is a great value. It is a quality stout in aroma appearance flavor and palate. Good aroma of chocolate and hops. This carries through into the flavour. Very good mouthfeel, carbonation is subtle. This is a solid beer for a great price. A keeper for sure. update did a blind tasting with this, kalamazoo stout from bells and la granja. Noticed more of a winey aroma and taste relative to the others that I didn’t pick up on when I drank it alone. Good brew

[ Bottled ; few deg below room temp ; B/B Feb 07 ]
A mostly lasting average frothy tan head that tops up a clear very dark black body. Moderate lacing. No particules. To the nose, malt are moderate chocolate while hops are very faint spruce. Also, there are evident traces of bitter coffee beans. Initial flavor is moderate sweet and acidic, well balanced, while development tends to lead to a sweet chocolate. Finish is long and sweet chocolate/coffee. medium to full body... creamy texture... Soft carbonation...
