Tap @ Raccoon Lodge: Dark brown, near black pour with a finger of creamy brown head. Aroma is plentiful in roast with some coffee and light cocoa. Flavor retains the heavy roast presence, but adds more chocolate and less coffee. It gets a bit dry in the tail and has a tiny bit of bittersweet amongst the heavy roasty notes. anders37 (27062) - Malmö, SWEDEN - DEC 6, 2008

Aroma of light coffee, dark chocolate, some molasses and toasted nuts. Taste is medium to full bodied, no carbonation with some roasted malt flavors. Finish has a light and smooth bittersweet aftertaste then changes to light coffee flavor. beerinmarch (2830) - Washington, USA - JUN 16, 2007
Very rich chocolate flavor at the start followed by a astringent coffee finish. This stout was a bit watery on the palate, but the flavors with rich and roasty with a good balance to it. I just wish it had a bit more body. BrewDad (5667) - Olympia, Washington, USA - FEB 21, 2006
A great dark black beer that pours like molasses and taste like honey. This had a great flavor and was so yummy to drink. I really enjoyed this brew. It is very hard to find a good Stout brewed with the right stuff. Good malts and lots of good character. I will drink this again for sure.
