UPDATED: MAY 25, 2007 May 24th re-rate. <P> Its still tasty. A bit tastier than before in fact. <P> ooohhh this smells good. Cherry sweet aroma. Smelled like those choclate covered cherries. Poured gloppy and black with a fluffy and bubbly mocha head. Bitter coffer flavors. The taste isnt nearly as complex as the smell. Still solid, but the smell gets you pumped up for something unique. Kinda crowded almost dirt-like flavor int he end taste. Not bad, but the smell, like a good movie than ends bad, hinted of things it didnt deliver.

This is a really nice stout. Really stands out with multiple flavors once it gets to the right temp.

Grandpa (327) - Verona, New York, USA - JUN 27, 2005
Nice dark tan head over an opaque body. The head left in a hurry. There were hints of coffee and chocolate. The lasting impression was the hops, not "rich creamy roasted malt." Not a bad stout but not a great one either.

ontario102 (794) - Boise, Idaho, USA - JUN 13, 2005
Fruity, port-like aroma; substantial chocolate and roasty assertion; some cherry and metallic hints; sweet, roasted caramel flavor with a burnt date and raisin tinge; the bitterness comes from smooth, black roasted malts (that seem more like caraffe rather than black patent) and not hops; somewhat acidic; nice brew!

Terminus (3645) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - JUN 2, 2005
12oz bottle-pours pitch black with a nice brown head. slightly viscus/oily pour. Lots of burnt grain husks, chocolate, char and coca here in the aroma. flavors are not as strong as the flavor, mostly bringing out the coca and char notes. body is medium and somewhat fluffy. Some astringency in the finish where the flavors dont come together right and a touch of acidic notes do the flavor no favor. an average stout.

heemer77 (5340) - Urbandale, Iowa, USA - JUN 2, 2005
Black body with a thin dark orange head. The aroma is pine sap with some rich caramel. There is also chocolate. The taste is coffee and light chocolate. There is also a little bit of wood. A very smooth stout. The mouthfeel is slightly sticky and thick. This is a good session stout.

tomhenderson (166) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - MAY 22, 2005
12 oz bottle. Thin orange head atop a black brew that looks like thin motor oil (I mean that in a good way! ;-) Aroma and flavor were typical of a stout. This isnt a bad beer, but there are better stouts out there. Surprised to see this ranked at 87!

hayduke (5100) - Eureka, California, USA - MAY 5, 2005
UPDATED: MAR 6, 2009 From a 12 oz bottle. Poured very black with a nice brown head and nice chunks of lacing. Feels thick and rich on the tongue. Very nice odors with a smoky coffee and chocolate dominating. Very smooth drink. Flavor are excellent but what makes this stand out is one of the best palates ever. Feels almost rich enough to eat with a spoon. Finish is chocolate. Very nicely done.

thehinge (292) - Wilmington, Delaware, USA - APR 29, 2005
Love the smokey aroma....Old Dominion has a stout much like this. Pours black with a hint of ruby. Beige head without much lacing. No matter, sweet taste of roasted malt and coffee. I like this a lot

StewardofGondor (1934) - Washington Heights - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - APR 25, 2005
Black, semi-thick appearance. Minimal tan head. Smells of chocolate and roasted malts; bitter coffee nodes. Fairly rich, dry and coffee-like in flavor. Body is borderline thick; waxy on the palate. Thick malts paired with roasted barley contribute to a good bitterness. Finish is primarily chocolate covered espresso beans. Pretty good stout. Thanks to tpkenned for this birthday treat!
