omhper (24637) - Tyres, SWEDEN - JUL 5, 2005
Bottled, thanks beerhandy! Black, small head. Roasty with lots of coffee. Dairly dry with medium body. Well balanced. A solid, enjoyable stout that doesnt go overboard in any direction.

12 oz bottle with a small but sturdy head. Aroma and taste are rich with chocolate and coffee. Noticed some dough taste in there as well. Very balanced.

Brad (364) - Berkley, Michigan, USA - MAY 27, 2005
Bottle: Very brown in color, with a moderate tan head. Aromas of chocolate, burnt toast/popcorn. Flavor wasnt as heavy as I wouldve liked, coffee and dark chocolate. Fair carbonation tickled the mouth pleasantly.

SuIIy (1983) - Burlington, Vermont, USA - MAY 27, 2005
Bottle from eyedrinkale. Pours dark brown with a tan head. Notes of coffee and chocolate. Somewhat too thin but mouthfeel is pleasant without the thickness.

MaxPower (961) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - MAY 21, 2005
Rich dark black color, creamy sticky brown head that leaves a clingy lace in my glass. Chocolate and burnt coffee aroma. Dark roasted malty flavor, nice bitter- burnt dry finish, medium bodied with a full and creamy mouthfeel, this is an awesome stout.

Styles (2014) - Lincoln Park, Michigan, USA - APR 3, 2005
Bottle in trade from beerhandy. Pours brown with a huge beige head. Aroma is dark roasted malt, lots of chocolate and some dark fruit. Flavor is just like it smells except it was overly buttery, which was a little turn off. Otherwise a very nice stout.

TheDean (786) - MIlwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 20, 2005
Wow, beautiful pour and an incredible aroma. Give a hint of toasted chocolate. Sweet taste that goes down smooth with no aftertaste. Not heavy, a lighter and wonderful stout. One of the better touts...heck beers Ive had in a while.

DocLock (10472) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 20, 2005
Thanks to beerhandy for this. Wow, what a pour! Obsidian with two-finger dark tan head. Definite 5 for appearance. I can smell it from 3 feet away, huge chocoff, that great jalapeno oil smell, and some prunes, spice, and licorice. 9 for aroma. Tastes very roasty, toasty malty, with tons of chocoff, some fruitiness, spice, and a semi rauchy finish. Solid taste. Not as dense as a Stone RIS or Dark Lord, but you have to remember that this is a stout, not an Impy stout. This is a top notch stout. Id bang Star Jones for another bottle of this. Yeah man!

UPDATED: SEP 7, 2004 A rather mellow contribution to the world of stouts, this brew is on the light side in terms of hue but has not sacrificed any flavor. Roasted barley and chocolate overtones ignite into a smooth combination. There is a subtly sublime sweetness and a eagerly crisp palate. I love small town/middle of nowhere breweries not simply for their obscurity, but for their gauge for simplicity and local flavor. Having spent a lot time in the region of this brew, it just tastes like home to me and I'd recommend home to anyone.
