Although this stout is fairly highly rated, I didnt find it to be my favorite among stouts. Almost non-existant head but immediately noticed a chocolate, coffee, burnt flavor. Very creamy but not enough "bite" for my taste. Non-bitter.

Chocolate overload! Smooth and creamy. Dark brown with a thin white head. No bitterness at all. The most unique bottle I have seen in a while. No question that this is a top notch stout.

Pours a dark black with some nice ruby accents on the edges. Tan head. Aromas are amazing. Lots of sweet malt and roast, caramel, coffee, and semisweet chocolate. Taste is not as pronounced as the aroma, but still solid nonetheless. Starts sweet with the previously mentioned flavors and finishes with a nice hop kick and bitterness not typically seen in the style or British stouts for the matter (or at least the ones Ive tried). Could use a bit more complexity however.

A pretty damn good stout.This was the style that really got me into heady ales and lagers.Kinda burnt and smoky,tease of lactic chocolate.A very balanced hopping and a thin to medium body with that cream effect.Need more to back up the smoke and char.

jcr (2643) - Jasper, Indiana, USA - OCT 3, 2005
Aroma of coffee, chocolate and roasted malts. Medium body, creamy and smooth mouthfeel. As in the aroma, coffee and chocolate dominate the flavor. There is a slight smokiness as well over a layer of sweet malts. A bit of bitter arrives on the finish.

Otje (678) - Veendam, NETHERLANDS - OCT 3, 2005
wonderful dark brown beer with a chocolate brown head. aroma: coffee, chocolate, licorice and citrussy. taste: sweet, coffee, milkchocolate, resinous and fairly bitter. finishes bitter, coffee-like and a bit citrussy. light bodied, not much co2. 6.5%abv. is well hidden. nice, classy, complex stout. liked it a lot.

SpudClampDawg (1029) - Jasper, Indiana, USA - OCT 3, 2005
Brew HaHa - quite an easy drinker for being a pretty big stout. Strong notes of coffee and chocolate in the nose. Malty body is smooth and creamy - nicely balanced by the spicy English hops. Would definitely buy again.

MesandSim (7117) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 2, 2005
A Mes rate: I really like this style. As far as high quality stouts go however, this is not one of them. Im not going to bother too much with the description. It does everything a stout does. Roasted coffee, chocolate, liquorice and usual stout behaviour. Its just too sticky even a long time after you have swallowed.

SmellGood (339) - Memphis, Tennessee, USA - SEP 23, 2005
Oh my the sweetness when I smell this elixir, but it falls flat when I taste it. Love the aftertaste and the beer itself can hold its own but totally not what I wanted or expected.

nick76 (4387) - Tampa, Florida, USA - SEP 23, 2005
In the aroma I detect the presence of coffee, roasted malt, chocolate, and a small amount of hops. The appearance is dark brown with an average head. The flavor is coffee and roasted malt with medium bitterness from the hops. The palate is about average for a stout. Bitter-Sweet aftertaste.
