Terminus (3613) - 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.

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 (4980) - 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!

Dickinsonbeer (5074) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - APR 24, 2005
Nice pure black body, low carbonation, and a very dark orange/brown head. Aroma is intense with roast and floral hops. Chocolate, roast, and toasted malts for flavor and a great smooth finish, with a little hop bite.

hawkshadow (107) - Rural Retreat, Virginia, USA - APR 10, 2005
Poured very black, with small tan head. Strong licorice and rotted fruit aroma. Thick creamy mouthfeel. Taste has some burnt wood and butterscotch. Very bitter, astringent aftertaste, that lasts long. Makes guiness taste like ginger ale. Overall it is like drinking cool cuban coffee. Extremely flavorful stout!

Black Coloring with Dark Tan Head. Bakers Chocolate, Coffee Roasts Aroma...Coffee Carries Through... A bit Watery Like the Scotch Porter.But Still a Solidly Average Stout.

Crosling (1864) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - MAR 31, 2005
The pour yields a rich black body and a densely topped tan head. Subtle, stale maltiness elevating aromatics of peanut butter, roast and a slight hint of chocolate, but overall it mostly resembles rich mocha in the nose. Flavor is ofcourse malt accented, but it leans toward a mild astringency in the finish, and this is a very fresh bottle. I dont like the finishing hop either. As it begins to warm though, a rich and creamy roasted chocolate malt character does indeed start to shine through. Overall, an above average stout, although I do prefer the Brewers Scotch Porter, which I think is an excellent beer.
