UPDATED: JUL 11, 2007 1 pt .9 oz bottle from Hy-Vee Liquors St. Joe poured into english pint - Pours very dark brown with a 1.5 finger bubly beige head; Sweet malt, chocolate and a hint of coffee to the nose; Coffee, lots of dark chocolate and a bit of roast on the initial taste; Espresso and a milky sort of backtaste that reminds me very much of an iced drink from Starbucks; Very smooth drinking beer with a fairly full palate. Definitely dig the bottle! Not the best sweet stout but certainly better than most! Id like to revisit this one, in fact. Enjoyed until the last drop! Re-Rate - New bottle! Had to pick it up for the collection and I remembered liking this beer a bit. Aroma is the same but the taste is better now. Roasted barley, dark chocolate, cafe latte, straight coffee on the initial. Much the same on the finish, but a bigger espresso presence and less of the milk and chocolate. Still one of my favorite stouts that I can find easily.

Beerdedone (3313) - Croydon, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 15, 2006
Bottle sampled with Stegosaurus. Pours dark with a tan head. Aroma of coffee, roasted and chocolate malts. Flavor is chocolate, roast, with a slight bitterness to it. Good beer.

TonyBanannas (36) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 5, 2006
Bottle, pours a deep jet black with a shallow brown head. Aroma is coffee, chocolate malt, and raisen. Taste of espresso, and dark chocolate. I liked it, almost like a dry stout. Extremely enjoyable with a good cigar. Especially my aged Ashton Maduro.

dkoonce (911) - Peoples Republic of Athens, Ohio, USA - AUG 4, 2006
Dark brwon with absolutely no head. Soapy bubbles in the bottle. Chocolate aroma. Tastes like cold flat coffee with sugar and a bit of cream. A bit of chocolate in the flavor as well.

DoubleBubble (107) - Mescal Lakes (wherever that is), Arizona, USA - AUG 3, 2006
Poured black with a good sized light tan head, very nice lacing. Roasted coffee aroma. Flavor has a roasty coffee flavor. Palate is dry, not as smooth or sweet as I expected. Light to medium body beer. Similiar to Guiness, but not as bitter. Worth a try, not as sweet or smooth as I had hoped.

Zinister (1423) - Houston, Texas, USA - AUG 2, 2006
Pours a great midnight black with very little head (unless you force it). Sweet malt with chocolate, coffee, cocoa and a touch of licorice. Wonderful smoky flavors of coffee, dark chocoate mocha and roasted grains. Very nice mouth feel and finish. Wonderful. Love it.

BitchesBrew (716) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - AUG 1, 2006
[bottle] Pours a near-black color, with a very weak head (even though I tried to really work one up). Sweet burned chocolate aroma, some subtle licorice as well. Flavors are sweet chocolate, dark malty goodness and a bit of coffee. Finishes with an assertive hop bitterness.

DarkMagus (508) - San Diego, California, USA - AUG 1, 2006
Deep dark black/brown color. Very slight, short-lived tan head. Aromas of coffee, burnt grain, malt, some slight cocoa, some woodiness. Similar array of flavors: prominent coffee, cocoa, dark roasted/burnt grains, malt, some slight woody/smoky flavors. Really nice, creamy, smooth, silky mouthfeel. Pretty awesome.

Phatz (225) - Paradise, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 1, 2006
This was a fantastic rich creamy milk stout. The appearance and smell are beautiful but the real synching point of the beer was how remarkably smooth and creamy the silky body just flowed through your palate. Appearance: Black with a frothy head. Smell: I could smell the whole cream malt balls aroma coming up through the roasty, chocolaty body. Fantastic! Taste & mouthfeel: Mocha Chocolaty, super smooth with a silky cream like taste and texture that is truly exceptional. Drinkability: This beer is absolutely as drinkable as the style can be! Hope this is helpful. Cheers!
