MAP (1133) - Lakewood, Ohio, USA - JUL 25, 2004
Good malty nose, like almost all stouts are. Hints of chocolate and roasted malt atcion. Flavor is very nice when it has warmed up a bit. The earth malt flavor come out more, instead of when its too cold and the palate dominates it. Definately one to avoid if it hasnt been out of the fridge for too long.

JonR888710 (999) - Cochabamba, BOLIVIA - JUL 23, 2004
Pitch black color with a khaki head, approx. 1 inch thick. Smells of malt, maple syrup, caramel, and lightly of cocoa , anise and sour milk. Taste begins sweet grapes and chocolate then gets very bitter and roasted. After is dry and bitter chocolate and roasted coffee. This is a benchmark stout but it seemed just smack dab in the middle with every other "good" stout. Nothing stands out as exceptional with this beer.

Very good stout. Beautiful black appearance with a light tan medium head. Decent coffee, chocolate aroma. Taste was kinda plain, but great at the same time. A little vanilla, roasted coffee flavors. Better than expected.

Bottle - huge coffee aroma. A beige head so tightly bubbled that it nearly looks like a nitro pour. Very roasty! A nice bitter bite at the back. Creamy palate. Very nice!

Lumpy (1802) - Carrollton, Texas, USA - JUL 5, 2004
Bottle. Dark body with a thin beige head. Nose is very sweet and malty. Flavor is roasted malt, hops, caramel, coffee, and a little prune. There is a stronger hop presence than I was expecting. There is a good balance between carbonation and flavor. The mouthfeel is very clean for a stout IMO. The finish is dry and just a little rough on the tongue. I beleive this is a well done stout and it is very enjoyable. Would be a good beer to have with a sandwich.
