This is as close to perfection as it gets. Pours an almost black colour with a thin mocha head. Aroma highlites include, malt, coffee and chocolate. Sweet upon first sip, then the burnt coffee takes over. Somewhat of a chewy taste to it?

UPDATED: OCT 27, 2006 12oz bottle, Pours a dark reddish brown with a small, tan head. Aroma of coffee, raisins, big chewy roasted malts, soy, a little alcohol. Taste follows the aroma with the addition of spicy hops, and some smokiness.Thick and creamy mouthfeel, alcohol well hidden. Excellent beer.

The aroma had big roast and coffee notes, dark fruits, and a slight spice note. The beer poured a beautiful opaque color w/ no head and lacing. The flavor was nice and roasty, toffee, lil coffee w/ slight hints of chocolate and dark fruit. The mouthfeel was full bodied, creamy and well rounded.

Dark black in color with a very faint red hue as you hold it up to the light. My eyes could just be playing tricks on me. A nice thick tan head, that fades to a lacey sheet. Aroma is hugely roasted malts. Flavor is mostly the same with hints of grapes, and coffee, and maybe even a little to salty, which is common to the style. Palate is medium bodied, with a smooth texture. Warming in the chest. Tastes even better as it warms. Two thumbs up for the boys at NCB.

mhack1128 (16) - gainesville, Florida, USA - APR 11, 2006
Pours Black with a thin foamy layer, reminds me of world wide stout when i pour it, strong taste with noticeble sugars in it, like a caramel. finish was good but a little more bitterness then i expected, the second and third sips felt smoother. overall a very good beer that just makes you feel much more relaxed. i said to a friend that it reminds me of a poor mans rochefort 10 (which can go near $10 a bottle vs the $7.50 a 4 pack for this one) a solid beer overall

BitchesBrew (716) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - APR 8, 2006
[bottle] Pours a pitch black color, looks kind of thick in the glass. Sweet aroma, slight coffee and chocolate notes. Flavors is intense, deeply complex and long-lasting. Kind of sweet at first, then mellows out into a coffee/roasted malt finish that is just massive.

henrikb (1263) - Aarhus, DENMARK - APR 8, 2006
UPDATED: JUN 8, 2006 Tasted blind at Sk8vikings amazing Porter/Stout tasting - Black body, big creamy head, some laces; Very pleasant, deep complex nose with a superb balance that makes it a bit hard to take apart: cinnamon, milk chocolate and a little warm red fruit; Very big soft and balanced body with a soft texture; Into long finish with some bitterness, coffee and some warm and full licorice. Full very well balanced beer. It could have more balance and fill, but its well made balance makes it incredible pleasant - - - - - - - - -Black with thick light brown head, the head could stay a bit longer; Huge nose, not as deep as expected, and a little to sweet: Caramel, cinnamon, milk chocolate on a spicy hoppy background; Huge super balanced body, again to the sweet side, some bitter character steps out in a very long finish, which almost has more aroma then the nose, in a more powerful way: mostly of licorice, but again with spicy hop, caramel and some dark berries, maybe blueberry (these can also be found in the nose but only very faint). Super beer, just a little to sweet for me (7-4-8-4-17).

UPDATED: OCT 27, 2006 Black opaque, thin tan line. Strong woody and pine needle aroma. Flavor of roasted almonds, bitter coffee, sweet raisin chocolate. A wood smokiness lingers. Hardly any alcohol presence. Full and robust as expected. Best stout I have tried.
