3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: NOV 18, 2003 Bottled. Intense chocolate and kona coffee smell upon opening. A thin brown head with little lacing, but still dense enough that the last few drops leave a small ring. Sweet, creamy oatmeal texture with a milk chocolate taste, espresso, and a hint of plums. Nice and sweet, but a dry, sherry like finish. A delightful and complex beer from this otherwise obscure brewery. I found it at the brewer's hometown IGA for $6.19 a sixer, so it should get extra points for being a great Wisconsin-priced value.

Dark body, quickly disappearing head, mocha like aroma,the first taste is a very pleasant yummy chocolately taste, which however only lasts for the first couple sips. It then seems to become a little to bitter and thin. I'd buy it again just for those first sips

very nice black color,small creamy head that faded quite quickly.Very nice roasted aroma with a good amount of chocolate and a faint smokey smell as well.The taste is very roasty again with a nice chocolate coming through and decent carbonation,theres a slight burnt taste to it and a very faint smoke that seems to keep coming up in the taste.The after taste is chocolate and mild bitter hops.This is definately a keeper very tasty and highly drinkable.

The nose is all chocolate and roasted malt. Nice looking. Hefty body for style. Loads of chocolate malt taste, then roasty, then a very tingly hop finish - I was intrigued enough to see how fresh it was, and my suspicions were confirmed - bottling date was les than 2 months ago. Chocolate is overdone for my taste, but still it was pretty good.

This is a very good stout that has lots of chocolate overtones mixing well with the roasted malts with some coffee like notes. Nice flavor. Surprising good feel and drinkability to this stout. It was like liquid M & M's without the candy coating. The candy is that it's beer, yum. Nice golden dark ruby brown color with very little head. Smells of coffee and cocoa with a good roasty background.

Very chocolatey aroma, along with a hint of toffee sweetness. Deep brown-black in color with a subsiding light tan head. Roasty malt flavors up front, followed by a blend of chocolatey sweetness and light, floral hops. Finishes bittersweet with a hint of coffee. Palate is a little thin and carbonated. Decent but certainly not world-class.
