Bottle shared with HogTownHarry & mds -- my bottle courtesy of acertain. Not sure what vintage, 05-06 I think? Pours a deep black with a huge mostly-lasting light-brown head. Sweet aroma of roasted malt, dark fruit, hops and chocolate. Slightly sweet flavour of coffee, roasted malt and chocolate with a dry bitter finish. Medium bodied. Hmmm, not as great as I expected, maybe some batches are better then others? Either way, I still quite enjoyed it.

tap at the brewpub - Pours black with a moderate, enduring tan head. The aroma is roast malt and coffee. This full bodied brew has a taste to match and the coffee flavor is at just about the right moderate level. The finish is mildly dry and bitter. Good stout.

On tap at Beveridge Place Pub. First time Ive tried this, and I was told its a "new recipe". Sweet with nice roasted malts. Little carbonation and no head. Better than anything Ive had from Pike. Tasty. Good hops.

Great stout here. Lots and lots of roasted and coffee flavors. If you are ever at the bar I recommend the Stout Float. Easily one of the best desserts Ive ever tasted.

[2006 GCBF] This is a textbook stout. Not too thick, pure black, really coffee flavoured, not watery at all. Exactly what you could want from a stout.

Draft at Brouwers Cafe Hopfest 06. Opaque black with a light tan head. Aromas of coffee and dark chocolate. Full, oily body. The taste starts lightly sweet with coffee, chocolate, burnt toast, roasted nuts, but cleans up on the bitter and slighty smokey finish.

Draft at Brouwers Cafe Hopfest 06. Always a pleasure. Absolutely solid black--a real shut up and drink me if you dare beer. Lovely creamy off-white head. Big coffee and chocolate nose. Sweet, chalky, chocolate body--smooth and rich but not overbearingly thick. Filling. Long sour bitter finish, but not by any means excessively so. The GF says "a little half and half in there would be good." I guess you dont have to love stout to pick up on the coffee flavor notes. Ive loved this beer for ages.
