This is a pretty good stout but nothing too special in my mind. Lots of raostiness with good dark flavors. Overall a decent beer

Pours a rich black color with a tan head resting on top. Aroma is very roasty with notes of coffee and chocolate, with mild hop spice. Flavor is very smooth, sweet, roasted, and grassy. Very nice stuff, for sure!

When Morrison sang, " Well, I woke up this morning and I had myself a beer..." this is was the dead fuck was crooning about. Smooth, dark, and rich... this brew can replace any steak n eggs breakfast and set you up for whatever you have to face that day. Good shit.

roder60 (1289) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 28, 2004
Jet black in color with minimal light tan/white head. Aroma smells a little hoppy and roasty but nothing overpowering. On first sip not what I had expected. Its good, but not as much of a full bodied flavor as I had hoped for. Rather, more a refreshing roasted chocolate flavor with some hop finish to it. Overall, a pretty good stout.

jcc83 (137) - Athens, Georgia, USA - AUG 27, 2004
Poured a red-tinged black with a moderate tan head. Aroma was toasty and bready, with a noteable hoppyness. The flavor was full and strong, dominated by a strong roasted ness and a nice hop bitterness in the finish. Very smoky and roasty. Good stuff.

Ungstrup (36537) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - AUG 25, 2004
A pitch black beer with a chocolate brown head. The aroma is sweet with notes of roasted bread and chocolate. The flavor is lovely: sweet malty with loads of roasted malt, chocolate, and coffee.

Grandpa (327) - Verona, New York, USA - AUG 18, 2004
A good strong stout with heavy dark roasted grain flavor. Has most of the characteristics of an Imperial. Nicely balanced with hops. Ill return to this one!

badgerben (5045) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - AUG 17, 2004
Dark brown to black color with a bit of a head. Roasty aroma. Decent malt and and roasted barley presence, but more bitter than a typical stout. Its not bad, it just didnt seem to offer much more than your basic stout recipie.

screigh (700) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - AUG 17, 2004
Poured a large brown head. Nice lacing. Color is very dark and almost no aroma. While not the best, not the worst either. Typical tasting stout with slight roasting flavor on the rear end. Not very dry. I like it and would probably buy again.
