Bottle. Dark brown to black with a good sized, light brown, creamy head. Aroma is bitter chocolate, sweet roasted malt and a hint of coffee and hops. Flavor is chocolate and roasted malt. Medium bodied with minimal carbonation and a nice, dry finish with a hint of hops bitterness.

chocolatey brown top on a deep black body with tiny hints of ruby at corners. Dry, chocolatey, burnt licorice. Oaty & dry, coffee and cocoa linger on the palate, sweetens up and leaves a sticky mouth.

Pours dark brown with light tan head. Sweet malt aroma with a touch of chocolate. Flavor to match, but with coffee bitterness.

From the bottle, pours black with a thick brown foamy head. Aroma is dry, not quite smokey, but gives the impression that a dryer stout is about to hit the lips. Taste is initialy smooth with some silky chocolate, followed quickly by a bitterness that hold throughout. Notes of cocoa powder and dark roasted malts, this finishes rather dry but not quite bittering. It’s....ok.

DerBiermeister (586) - Birmingham, Alabama, USA - JAN 20, 2010
Slightly hearty aroma. Looks black and very opaque. Tastes of burnt malts? Slightly reminiscent of Guinness, though much thinner. Not too much of a palate - just good Irish (style) hearth and goodness.

flemdawg (562) - Rowlett, Texas, USA - MAR 17, 2004
Malty aroma, along with molasses, coffee, carmel, and cocoa. Very dark, but some light will make it appear red just around the edges. Also a carbonated head, much like a pop that quickly dissappeared. Molasses was the first thing I noticed when I took a sip, but the hop bitterness took over after that. Some coffee and chocolate made a breif stint in there as well. Kind of thin on the tounge. This was my birthday present to my self, and I think I could have done a better job, but still not bad.

raindog (560) - Evansville, Indiana, USA - MAR 5, 2003
Looks just like it's picture above.Not as black as leads to believe though.Dark mahogany at the darkest. Aroma is very bittersweet(not from overloading hops),burnt,and some earthy hop notes. Mouthfeel seemed watery at first but after a few sips,this is a pretty thick brew. Excellent cocoa,caramel,burnt flavors with a long,lingering bittersweet finish. Seems to be a good stab to me.

3.2
BustedFlat (554) - Edina, Minnesota, USA - JUN 21, 2007
16 ounce bottle. Pint glass. Dark with a tan head. Aroma was sweet roast malt with a hint of chocolate. Taste was mainly roast malt and caramel with a touch of bitterness. A little watery.

3.6
ElJefe (553) - Rochester, New York, USA - MAR 24, 2008
Pours black with a good sized light brown head. Aroma of cocoa and caramel, burnt coffee. Bitter coffee and unsweetened chocolate flavors, but I could swear I could taste some piney hops presense as well. Somewhat full bodied. A nice dry stout.

3.4
howie (549) - DeForest, Wisconsin, USA - APR 4, 2004
Quite sweet and lush bodied for a "dry" stout. Roasty and slightly chocolatey. Enjoyable, but nothing outstanding.
