Wow this is a good beer. Chocolate with a good stout bite. Creamy texture.

Very good stout. Darker than a black hole and ten times better than Guiness. Smooth, stout, bitter taste. Great, dark head. Really an excellent beer.

UPDATED: FEB 6, 2003 Good stout, not the best. The bubbles are perfectly coarse; the head lingers, but not too long, with a subtle laciness. The beer is almost completely opaque. I noticed aromas of roasted malt, alcohol, and the light presence of Cascade hops. The beer has a thick, silky body, but with a surprisingly dry, balanced finish. I found the flavors to be excellently balanced between bitter astringence and a sweet, chocolatey roastiness. The palate became more bitter and smoky as I progressed through the 22-ounce bottle. The first half of the beer was nearly perfect, but the second half was clearly unbalanced toward bitterness, but not as severely as the Saint Rogue Red I had yesterday. P.S.: I can't believe this is called a 'Sweet Stout'!

Expected much more. Best part was the appearance which was dark with brown sugar head which lasted only a minute. Aroma was mostly cocoa chocolate with very little coffee at the end. Taste was grainy with mild chocolate and a hint of coffee on the finish. Not much going on. Mouthfeel was dry and thin for a stout. So many better stouts.

Nice oatmeal stout but not as good as Samuel Smiths. I did not taste a lot of oats in this stout and it was a little more hoppy then I was expecting. Overall a good stout but I will not drink again.

Fresh full dark malt and Cascade hop aroma with medium hop lace on the glass. The flavor really delivers on the aromas promise, a veritable symphony of dark malts and hops. The palate leaves the burnt malt, brewed nearly to dryness (the infamous Pac-Man yeast), and a slight resinous hop residue. Overall this is one of the best balanced West Coast stouts, joining Pike Place XXXXX Stout, Bells Kalamazoo Stout, and Anchor Porter on my honor roll.

22 oz Bottle. Pours very dark brown, almost black. Entirely opaque. Smell is malty with lots of coffee and some chocolate, some toffee/caramel notes in there too. Taste was fairly unremarkable: roasted malt with a good balance of bitterness. Mouthfeel was too flat for my liking, but was nice and creamy and really coated the mouth. This beer was a bit of a let down after the hype, but it is still a solid stout.

Pours black with a really nice tan head. There is nothing wrong with the way this beer looks in a glass. The aroma is pretty dissappointing; Notes of smokey malts gives way to bitter chocolate the more it warms up. The taste is diluted dark chocolate. Dissapointing, watery mouthfeel.

This is a first rate stout. I have never had a better stout. So many interesting flavors going on it is indescribable. The maltiness is perfect for my taste-buds.

Aesir (130) - Tustin, California, USA - OCT 9, 2002
Deep dark stout with a dark tan head. Chocolate aroma, roasted coffee flavor, with hefty, long lasting hops. Great stout that complimented my tuna sandwich quite nicely. And to those that would disrepute such a brew, I can say only this: "Fie, fie upon thee, strumpet!"
