Bottle at The Irish Bistro. Pours black with a nice toffee/chocolate head. Aroma of malts, toffee, and a whole bunch of molasses. Cocoa and molasses dominate tha taste. Very enjoyable.

Was just telling yayforbeer that the last few stouts Ive come across have been rather *rough* around the edges. This too is at first. Mellows out a bit. Pitch black colour....stout..duh! no massive head, but a faint one that sits around for about as long as it takes to drink this. Served out of a pinter0.9oz. The bottle looks a bit medicinal, though kinda cool. Taste is a very burnt cast away of chocolates, hops and malts with a tit of bitter sweet to perhaps elude to a cream? i guess it works as I find myself enjoying this.Ive tried their organic ale, and I believe Ill try the others now that 2 beers have passed tha test....oh and it smells like coffee. yes..................................update. Publix corn chips and Publix brand salsa consumed while drinking this beer creates a euphoric phenomenom i can only describe as lighter fluid and freshly lit charcol.

Black,redish colour. Thin tan head. Burnt, roasted acidic nose with some notes of chocolate. Roasted malt in flavour, with hints of dark chocolate and coffee. Slight vinous. A pleasant acidity in finish.

PeterLikesBeer (104) - Berwyn Heights, Maryland, USA - NOV 5, 2005
Pours black with a quickly diminishing white head. Aroma has chocolate and coffee. There is also some malt aroma present. Flavor has some malt bitterness, sweet chocolate and coffee flavors. Quite nice. However, all of the flavors a little weak nevertheless its very good.

eboats (1082) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - OCT 31, 2005
Black with almost no head. The lacing is dark brown. Aroma is strong coffee and heavy roasted malt with a hint of chocolate. Aroma smells thick. Has a great creamy texture. It almost seemed a little wattery at first, but that is the creamy texture that just makes it go down oh so smooth. Flavor is coffee and chocolate with some caramel and a hint of vanilla. Quite good, but not worth the $4.49 a bottle.

PurplePieMan (6) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - OCT 26, 2005 does not count
UPDATED: OCT 27, 2005 Cute bottle. Pours almost opaque with a light brown head. A nice presentation... The bouquet is that of a bale of hay, or even a freshly opened bag of Meow-Mix (dry cat food) though it seems subdued somehow. The mouthfeel was smooth and crisp -satisfying but not really creamy. I taste coffee, cocoa, and cucumbers. I wanted more texture and complexity. Maybe it was a little too cold. I would rather spend my money on a chocolate stout (or imperial). This is an easy drinking stout. A good entry point if you are new to stouts or if you enjoy Guinness. Otherwise, grab a Rogue Chocolate Stout.

asheft (3058) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 23, 2005
[bottle] Black, no fizz--speckled, oily top. Roasty sherry sweet dark malt creamy aroma. Sweet and bitter, roasty and a little winey flavour. Bitterness is a blend of hops and dark malts. Clean finish. Low carbonation and smooth with a medium body. Very nice flavoured beer, if a bit mild.

slimweebs (163) - Los Angeles, California, USA - OCT 23, 2005
Thick, creamy, chocolately flavor. Strong chocolate aroma. Tastes like a bittersweet chocolate chip, combined with a creamy/roasty combination of malt. Very low hop profile, which is what keeps this beer from being rated higher. Overall, a nice beer. Would buy again. Cool bottle too.
