Pitch black. Average sized brown head. Aroma of bourbon, coffee, dark chocolate. Very heavy and roasty with serious amount of bitterness. Alcohol can be tasted for sure. Almost up to imperial stout standards. NaturalIce (149) - originally from Michigan, New York, USA - NOV 7, 2005
UPDATED: FEB 2, 2014 Amazing chocolaty flavor, very smooth. Aroma definitely represents the alcohol strength in the beer. Beautiful pour, overall one of my favorite beers ever. lowg (148) - Scarborough, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 17, 2009
330ml bottle, LCBO. Pours almost completely black. Aroma of dark chocolate and fruits. Nice roasty taste to begin with and a rich well rounded finish, though on some sips the alcohol was a tad overpowering. sandberglar (148) - Scottsdale, USA - JAN 30, 2010
Black as the night, with a brown head. Smells like cherries. Has a sweet malty taste, with a warm, bitter, alcohol tasting finish. Good stout, but nothing I’d go out of my way to get again. Braincage1 (147) - Cary, North Carolina, USA - JUL 31, 2007
Bottle. An opaque deep red beer with a thin dark brown head. It looks delicious and the aroma enhances that - an amazing creamy milk chocolate and roasted coffee aroma greets you with some smoke and raisin added. The flavor is actually less distinct than the aroma but good qualities of the chocolate and coffee malt remain strong. Bitter finish but bery balanced and easy palate.

Black pour and a tan head which dissapears rather quickly. Malty and smooooth, great stout.....great stout! Brian (145) - Ontario, CANADA - MAY 24, 2003
Nice, thick head and intense taste. Heavy on the coffee and malt with some chocolate coming through--a nice blend! Reminds me a bit of a better version of ABC stout. All in all, a fine example of the type. foosnbrews (145) - Parker, Colorado, USA - APR 6, 2009
Beer poors dark with a dark tan head. Aroma is very mellow but has a nice malty presence. Flavor is excellent with a slight sweetness and rich with notes of toffey and mild chocolate. Alchol presence is suprisingly subdued. Overall this beer is excellent. One of the best stouts I’ve had. rabuc (143) - carlisle, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 14, 2004
another taste test brought me to this one. this isn't a bad stout. a good looking beer with black fluid and creamy head. possesses chocolate, coffee and nuts for a distinct characteristic flavor. altkencru (143) - USA - NOV 1, 2005
Darn good stout...surprised by the "low" overall rating. I took this on MJ’s recommendation, boy was he right on!
