This beer I had at underground bluz(see review in orlando) very bubbly, not much taste at all. Ive never been a fan of shipyard beers, and this one is no exception. Poured its pretty thick and looks nice but it tastes like soda water and has very little flavor otherwise, my friend took a sip and said it had a coffee flavor, I tried it again and was able to slightly detect that flavor but overall very little flavor, its not a bad beer but I wouldnt buy it again.

Despite a gentle pour the head on this thing just went crazy, and I had to spend minutes just waiting for it to die down before I could try pouring some more. Overall it tasted good, with dry chocolate flavors with a slightly bitter finish, but it was a little too close to Guinness for me to be impressed.

UPDATED: SEP 25, 2011 Re-rated Sep 2011. Nice big pour of motor-oil black and a thick tan head. The aroma is rich with bitter chocolate and a bit of java. Drinks like a nice cup of coffee with a roasted toffee finish. Glad I re-tried it. I mustve gotten an infected bottle last time. cup of cold coffee. Ill try it again to be fair.

Chocolatey dry stout that seems to be trying to be a guinness clone. Not bad but underwhelming. A little bitterness appears stronger as it warms. Decent.

CapFlu (5123) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 3, 2005
(22oz bottle) Purchased at Downeast Beverages in Portland, Maine, on August 1, 2005. Pours a huge (3/4 glass) light brown, frothy head with a mildly carbonated, opaque body. Nose of roasted malt and molasses. Fizzy flavours of deep roasted malt. Thin finish. I have to agree with kfarrnd below that this is too carbonated and the flavour doesnt show its potential.

kfarrnd (113) - Oldsmar, Florida, USA - AUG 22, 2005
UPDATED: AUG 23, 2005 Bottle -- Good black color with a thin head. But taste was far too light and overally carbonated on the palate. Definitely hints of coffee but not enough richness.

On tap at Federal Jacks. Pours a deep black color with a thin creamy light brown head. Weak lactic aroma of coffee and roasted malt. Ordinary flavor of coffee and roasted malt. Light to medium body with a dry mouthfeel and soft carbonation.

Bottle--Poured a nice black color with a foamy tan head. Good thick taste on the tongue. Smell of chocolate, though I wished the aroma was stronger. Good beer.

i was excited to see this in the store, because these guys make some pretty damn good beers. pours out dark black. smells strongly of coffee and chocolate. taste is thick, rich, creamy, and tastes almost like a glass of coffee. finish is pretty dry. all in all, a very good dry stout that could be enjoyed with a large amount of chocolate. might end up going and buying more of these in a few days. damn nice.
