UPDATED: MAY 25, 2006 Rerate: Mild, malty chocolate aroma; moderate-full bodied; roasty malts and espresso flavor; milky palate, though with a fairly bitter, lingering finish. Nice stout.

Looks the way I like beer to look: dark, almost black body with a tan, frothy head. Dark chocolate and roasted coffee in the nose with some overtones of citrus. Mouthfeel was medium, smooth, a little oily. Flavor was semi-sweet chocolate and roasted coffee. A respectable stout.

SubstanceT (1092) - Saint Louis, Missouri, USA - JUN 19, 2004
black purple with a thin quickly discipating tan head. Nose is bitter with some malts but in general it is quite fiant. The taste is mostly bitter with a sharp kick right off the bat then calms down to be more malty and stubtle. THe body is nothing too exciting. Pretty darn average for a stout.

Great Stout!! Pours thick and black with a small but long lasting head. Pleasant bitterness with a big roasted flavor made this a nice companion with a bleu cheese filet on the grill.

VTHopHead (1511) - Seymour, Tennessee, USA - MAY 30, 2004
UPDATED: JUN 27, 2004 Bottle - Very dark with a very thin tan head with decent lacing. Roasted barley is very strong in both the aroma and flavor. Less than the typical amount of coffee. There are several layers of hop flavor and bitterness, but it is not overpowering at all. Hop bitterness lingers. A very good effort. Enjoyable.

Thick, dark appearence with a roasty smell. Hints of coffee, with a thick, roasted taste. Lingering coffee aftertaste. Very good - I'd buy it again.

Dark black, maybe a tinge of red. Nose is stouty, roasty with some chocolate. No real coffee bitterness in the flavor, all chocolate and sweet.

Opaque black body with a medium tan head. Sweet roasted malt and a touch of chocolate on the nose. Flavor is kind of a let down after the aroma. Roasted malt and chocolate with some residual sweetness. Medium body. Not bad.
