Bottle poured black with a good thick chocolate head and fair lacing. Small roasty sweet aroma. Nice medium body with great taste, earthy woody campfire flavor, malty with just a bit of bitter . Flavor stays on the palate a long time and the head on this one lasted!! Good stout!

Bottle. Pours dark deep brown, deep reddish highlights when held to the light. Aroma is the usual roasted barley, sight sour tang, soyish, and overall rich in the aroma department. Flavors are earthy roast, some yeast elements( I like), more bitter and harsh, than smooth on the palate, but still very delicious. High/medium drinability. Body medium/thick. Enjoyed the hop presence in this beer, gave it some good depth. Another good offering from SN.

jewedekind (450) - Middleton, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 30, 2004
A nice brown head over a black beer. Little in the nose, a slightly roasted whiff. Taste is nice and toasty, with some lingering roated flavors. A bit on the bitter side for style and the body is sharp, not creamy. Very drinkable, but not on the style.

Veldy (65) - Coon Rapids, Minnesota, USA - OCT 30, 2004
This is an EXCELLENT example of Stout. This beer is not nitrogen loaded like so many of the big commercial brews. It IS loaded with roasted barley. The roasty flavor is pronounced, yet smooth. There is enough body to balance the roasted malts and enough hops to accent the roast bitterness. Truly a great example of the style!

yayforbeer (753) - Orange Park, Florida, USA - OCT 30, 2004
Dark brown but not opaque, and almost no head. A nice mild sweet malty aroma. A bit of a shock with the first sip as it was a lot more bitter and hoppy than I was expecting, but the flavor quickly grew on me and developed to an enjoyable and interesting stout. Very nice.

piscator34 (2374) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - OCT 26, 2004
Almost black with the slightest hint of red. Aromas of hops and roasted malts. The flavors are well balanced between the hops and the grainy coffee and chocolate. It also has a really nice caramel undertone to it, which gives it a slightly sweet quality. A straightforward example of what a stout should be.

tiggmtl (4544) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 20, 2004
Roasted malts play quietly with the hops in the aroma.Opaque black with two finger tan head that recedes to cover while coating the sides of the glass. Chocolatey, roasty and a bit salty with fair bitterness and an almost burnt finish. Medium-full body with carbonation that is lively in the mouth. Bottle.

sixpackcharley (19) - barclay, Texas, USA - OCT 16, 2004
Sweet choclatey palate with a nice tan head is a rewarding stout from the begining. Mellow afterwards and an easy finish. Nice overall finish to this brew. Almost a dessert.

A good stout that falls a bit short in comparison to Victory and Sam Smiths. However, pours very dark with a tan head. Impressive. More coffee-like than chocolate, and a little too bitter for my tastes. Not as rich as advertised!
