Aubrey (3516) - Bellingham, Washington, USA - JUN 16, 2001
UPDATED: FEB 16, 2005 Dark with a big and rocky head. Rich, sweet and chewy. Decently balanced. Evident alcohol. Subtle chocolate and coffee flavors were nice. Roasty and a little spicy. Somewhat cloying at times. Pretty good stuff, but like a few others, I found it just a little under par to the hype. A decent stout, sure, but not as great as some make it out to be.

Strong chocolate and mocha presense. This may sound wierd but I could swear as I drank this beer it helped my sinuses clear up.

Got Stout? (173) - Wisconsin, USA - SEP 24, 2001
My offering was 8%, as clearly indicated on the bottle. This offering seemed to be a Sweet Stout trying to play with the big Imperials, but getting its ass kicked. No big standout flavors or complexity, but a respectable session stout. Mildly roasty.

VA Homebrewer (525) - Portsmouth, Virginia, USA - FEB 19, 2002
Not a bad stout. Roasted malt, coffee and dark chocolate flavors. A bit skunky on the aromw, but roasted malt still present. A little thin, but not terribly so.

MaxPower (961) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - NOV 23, 2002
UPDATED: JAN 2, 2005 Pours black with a nice creamy brown head that leaves good lacing in my glass, roasty, fruity malty aromas. Taste like plums, chocolate and smoke, medium bodied with a creamy mouthfeel, finishes a bit sweet, alcohol comes through as it warms, not as good as I was expecting but still a good stout.

Bottle. Black with ruby tints and a lush and grand brown head. Lots of chocolate and a sweet malt aroma with some lingering liqueur mist. A thick and creamy malted chocolate flavor.

npdempse (934) - St. Petersburg, Florida, USA - JUL 30, 2004
Black, opaque, with large light brown head. Sweet nose, some chocolate, prunes. Quite bitter flavor, dry, some chocolate, hints of sweetness.

Cashazza (217) - Morganville, Maryland, USA - JUL 31, 2004
Black with an awesome beige head, and an aroma and flavor of roasted malts, dark fruit, chocolate, and coffee.

harlequinn (2744) - Tacoma, Washington, USA - AUG 8, 2004
Some nice roasted chocolate and toffee notes, and some light caramel present as well. Thisis actually not bad, as I was not expecting too much, but this was actually very refreshing and easy to drink.
