zeke626 (460) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JUL 9, 2008
Bottle, pours a dark brown, red-hued body with a short-lived light brown head. Aroma of brown sugar, lightly toasted malts, coffee, and chocolate. Flavors of semi-sweet chocolate, roasted malts, and a hint of coffee. Bitter cocoa and coffee finish. Actually kind of bitter for a sweet stout, but it is enjoyable. Medium-bodied with a slightly creamy mouthfeel.

Pour is a black with a slightly persistent tan head. Nose is faintly of chocolate and coffee. Taste is of light and sweet chocolate, nothing too flashy however quite good.

Creamy black pour into Ciney glass. Aroma of coffee. Good smoky flavor with chocolate, coffee, salted nuts and oatmeal. This is smooth and creamy. Much better than anticipated.

hogan873 (451) - Joliet, Illinois, USA - MAR 24, 2007
Pours nearly black with a thin brownish head. Nice aroma of coffee and chocolate. Heavy on the palate like a stout should be. Good flavor with notes of bitter chocolate and cereal (maybe oatmeal?). Bitter aftertaste. A good stout.

jewedekind (450) - Middleton, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 2, 2005
Overall a very good stout, just overly hopped. Poured a big rocky brown head, that eventually thinned to a lacy rind. Not much nose, but a pronounced roasted aroma that led straight to the mouth. Big roasted flavor with chocolate and coffee. Very dry and heavily hopped (Chinook?). Bitterness rocks out the palate, and leaves me wanting some complexity.
