Bottled version. Yuck.Hey, it didn’t look bad but it was a thin tasteless mess. islay (3125) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - NOV 5, 2006
Bottle. This beer looks, smells, and tastes much like black coffee with a sugar cube added. It pours with a pleasant, understated sable head. The flavor is surprisingly bitter upon the first few sips, but the sweetness becomes increasingly noticeable as one continues to drink it. The body is unfortunately light and watery, and the texture is thin and not as creamy as would be ideal. Thus, it is much like a sweeter version of Guinness Extra Stout. grimreeser (797) - Minnesota, USA - OCT 29, 2006
Pours dark brown with medium sized tan head, nice lacing. Roasty aroma, a little bit of coffee. A little bitterness, not very sweet. JK (6342) - St. Louis Park, Minnesota, USA - OCT 7, 2006
UPDATED: NOV 15, 2006 On cask at the 2006 Autumn Beer Review. Dark brown. Roasted malt aroma. More like an alt beer than a stout Full body, and some oak in the flavor. It is a very good beer, especially for a macro brewer.
-------- at the Dubliner in Nov. 06. Very smooth, and significant roasted malt and some coffee. Quite good and one of Schell’s best products.
