Hollywoodt (240) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - JAN 5, 2007
Dark brown pour. Aroma was malty with a light, sweet coffee hint. Flavor was a lot of the dark, burnt malt. This one seemed under carbonated to me.

ehhdayton (1188) - USA - JAN 4, 2007
Pours a dark black with a light brown head. The aroma is a combination of chocoalte and roasted coffee. Nice creaminess to the body with flavors of dark chocolate, coffee, dark fruit, and a bit of hoppish bitterness.

I do not know if the meaty mushroom taste is done by esters/process or they just squished a few shrooms but it is gross. Oily near burnt roastyness. Bad mouth feel and finish.

muzzlehatch (4901) - Beloit, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 25, 2006
12 oz bottle from Bello Vino in Ann Arbor, MI (December 2006) served above cellar temperature from a Corsendonk Christmas Ale glass. Huge-bubbled frothy deep tan foam dissipates quickly atop opaque ebody, leaving some spidery lacing.....nose is fairly "dark", mostly bitter coffee though with a bit of creamy milk chocolate and some limey earthy qualities thrown in for good measure.....alas the poetry is lost on me once it touches my lips, for tis watery and cardboardy, mostly dark bitter espresso with little traces of mladys sweet charms about it, really quite dull and unadventurous, burnt and rather oily, the low carbonation not helping matters as it peters out into a tarry morass at the finish. Doesnt do much to help this brewerys already mediocre (in my heart) reputation.

Black color with medium whitish-tan head. Roasted malt aroma with hints of coffee and cream. Taste is dominated by coffee, roasted malts, chocolate. A bit thin, but overall a pretty good stout.

Draught at the brew pub. Dark reddish-brown color. Red around the edges. Head was tan and left some lace on the glass. Light roasty aroma with a touch of malty cereal grain. Medium bodied and slightly sweet with roasted malt and dark chocolate flavors. Finishes with a roasty bitterness.
