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.

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.

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!

NobleSquirrel (3438) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - OCT 9, 2004
Nice, very dark color with a bit of head. Smelled of hops more than anything, but not in an overly hoppy way, if that makes sense. Some light malts and chocolate in the nose as well. As for the taste, bitter taste that turned more sourish as it warmed, though, again, not in a bad way. Quite light on the palate, hints of chocolate and bitter coffee coming through with a light sweetness as well. The finish was remarkably clean. An interesting stout, to say the least.

Hopgeek (90) - San Diego, California, USA - OCT 7, 2004
Dark black cola-like color and makes a nice foamy tan head. Aroma is loaded with rich roasted malts. Flavor is spicy, roasted and chocolatey. Palate is medium bodied and nicely balanced. Good stuff, highly enjoyable.

harlequinn (2744) - Tacoma, Washington, USA - OCT 2, 2004
A decent stout, a little too carbonated for my taste, but not over the top. Makes a great argument for session stouts, some nice choclate and coffee flavors are present, with a nice hoppy bite in their as well.
