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.

(bottle) black is black...i want my baby back....aroma like hazelnut coffee... a toasty hop flavor, but nothing spectacular. i dont find this very drinkable or very exciting in any way. i wont be getting this again, but i was still able to drink it down.

Norton (333) - Southside, Richmond, Virginia, USA - SEP 26, 2004
Draft. Nearly opaque, very deep brownish black. Mini light brown head. Wheres the flavor? All I get out of this is a mild toastiness. Underwhelming from one of the most overrated brewers out there. Didnt get better as it warmed.

beerinmarch (2830) - Washington, USA - SEP 24, 2004
Pours black with a tan head. Aroma is just like their porter, roasty coffee, but a bit less up front. A thicker body and less hops bring out a smoother feel for this brew. Good roastiness in the taste with some bitter chocolate and coffee left in the finish. Still could stand for a bit thicker texture to it.

Beautiful stout ... big monster head on a black nightmare. Light java aroma. Nice nutty and bitter flavors with sweet swirl on top. Nice.
