Pours a dark chocolate-like brown color with a medium head that dissipates in to a small oily off-white head. Aroma is very roasted malt, citrus with some chocolate and coffee notes. Flavor is identical to the aroma with an excellent bitterness on the swallow. Silky body with a medium finish. sloth (2944) - Ceciltucky, Co., Maryland, USA - JUN 6, 2004
Small light brown head, quickly dissipates leaving behind a small smathering of stringy lace. Opaque, black brew. Nose of black malt, roast with a hint of coffee, licorice and light vinous notes. Med/full body, creamy pallet. Good roast flavors, chocolate and coffee notes, cades coming through also in buried citrus notes. Finish is dry, roasty, fruity, oily, nice. savannah (37) - columbus, Ohio, USA - JUN 5, 2004
UPDATED: AUG 9, 2004 Dark black with minimal light tan head. Light chocolate aroma. Low medium carbonation, very nice level for this beer. Flavor is well rounded and not overpowering. Medium mouth feel. Overall very good beer. Excelent value. invalid (302) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JUN 5, 2004
Nice roasty flavor with some hoppy undertones. Dark body, small head. Tastes gritty and roasted but ends with a hop bitterness. Good Stuff. dropkickm79 (53) - Oklahoma, USA - MAY 31, 2004

Malty chocolate aroma. Bitter chocolate flavor with a very b itter finish. Really hoppy for the style. Beautyful creamy mouthfeel. Far better closer to room temperature DUbrew (49) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAY 21, 2004
This is a good stout. Too much carbonation at times, and the taste is kindof akin to the burnty flavor of guinness extra stout. But the rest is good, with a great finish and complex flavor not found in nitros. MrWalker (926) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - MAY 21, 2004

Nice cuddly stout. Somewhat burned and dark fruits get their fair place. Average.
Thick head to much carbonation. Good bitter flavor but, not as smooth as Guinness. fly (1487) - austin, Tejas, Texas, USA - MAY 14, 2004
Very nice, thick, dark (duh) stout that was only recently revisited after many years ... and still appreciated. Enough malt to sink your teeth into and hops to play the melody.
