Dark chocolate, caramel on both aroma and palate. Medium body, medium alcohol. halfonit (1366) - Fall River, Massachusetts, USA - DEC 14, 2012
On tap at driftwood in Plymouth. Pours black with an off white head. Aroma is of malts, some roastiness, a little coffee and nuttiness. Medium bodied. A little lighter for my taste when it comes to stouts. Favors include malts, some coffee, smoke, a little roastiness, and some more malts. Leaves a malty finish. This would have been something special 10 years ago, but now a days there’s so much more expectations on stouts and this was kind of a let down. beastmaster (381) - Florida, USA - DEC 7, 2012
Beautiful oatmeal stout. Smooth. Oatmeal and chocolate flavors are subtle, I would like to be able smell the chocolate better. Has a dry bitter aftertaste that makes me think I just ate some dark chocolate. Great winter stout. ozarkspops (368) - - DEC 7, 2012
Black pour. Corse but thick tan head. A lot of lacing. Chocolate/malty aroma. Medium carbonation with chocolate flavors. I get that oatmeal silkiness. The sweetness from the oatmeal and the bitterness from the chocolate is a mix. A slightly dry/bitter finish.

UPDATED: DEC 19, 2012 This was genuinely a good stout. It did however produce a light fizzy head that disappointingly disappeared rather quickly. Good strong taste with a nice easy finish.

this is the wateriest "stout" I have every had... not really a stout, maybe an OK porter, but there are many other better ones. not worth the high price. johnnnniee (4312) - Bedford, New Hampshire, USA - JAN 29, 2011
So a friend of mine finds some beer in his cellar that he forgot about. We have no idea how old this bottle is, but we drank it on 6-11-08.
Bottle opened with a big hiss, and when poured seems a bit over carbonated. Pours a nice black with slight brown highlights on the edges. Creamy tanish head that stuck around for a while. This beer smells amazing. Dried plums and raisins, chocolates, coffee. Taste is creamy smooth chocolate, some coffee, some fruits, a little bit of oxidation, but not horrible, and a strong roasted grain that lingers at the end. Body is medium and mouthfeel is creamy. I was surprised at how well this one held up given that its at least 2 years old and low on the alcohol side. I would have loved to tried this fresh! Yet another great brew that Magic hat wrongly decided wasn’t worthy.

I used to love this beer. Dark pour. Nose and taste of sweet malts, coffees. A little dry finish. Rated 6/8/02 gameface23 (131) - Haverhill, Massachusetts, USA - JUL 10, 2008
An old review from 2003 (I miss this beer!)... Growler direct from the brewery. Nice black colored body with a tan, creamy head. Taste of dark chocolate. Very enjoyable. JoeMcPhee (9427) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 3, 2008
Tap at Blind Tiger. Dark brown/black beer with a thin brown head. Aroma shows light cocoa on the nose. Some light cherry fruitiness but it’s fairly non-descript. A bit toasty on the back, but I still can’t say it’s all that good.
