Bottled. Deep brown beer with a small brown head. Aroma is mostly english licorice, with the usual stout-aromas too. Flavor adds peat and cigar-box. Creamy mouthfeel with roasted finish. (051104)

Pours black with ruby highlights around the edges, has a thin tan head that settles to a thin ring, and doesnt leave much lacing. Smell; has a bit of an earthy smell, with only hints of dark chocolate and coffee, Theres also a little bit of a soy sauce smell lingering in the background. Taste; slitghtly burned coffee, and the earthiness I noted in the smell comes out in the finish along with a little sweet chocolate. Mouthfeel was nicely thick and creamy, with vary little carbonation.

average app for a stout...black with wispy white head...aroma is full of chocolate...coffee and toffee hints as well....flavor is a bit of a let-down, but not bad by any means....it is lacking the cream and nutty flavors that i have come to love in a cream stout....this reminds me more of a porter, not a cream stout....palate is okay, but somewhat watery...

Flat pour, with no head at all. Dark cola color with no bubbles. Neat oval shaped bottle! Dark coffee flavors with a hint of chocolate in the aftertaste. Slightly astringent in mouth feel, but overall pretty decent!

Strykzone (6860) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - JUL 28, 2006
Cool bottle. Reminds me of an elixer sold at a Wild West Medicine Show. Pours almost black with a thin lacing. Aroma is akin to a merlott wine. First taste has some vinegar flavor and is mostly bitter. It offers a slight zing on the front of the tongue. After a bit the malt begins to show and some barley is becoming evident. Mouthfeel is thinner than hoped for. This beer has changed considerably throughout the glass. The merlott aroma has changed as has the flavor. To give up early on this one would be unfortunate. The bitterness, while still present, has moved into the background. It has also moved to the back of the throat. Also, some dark fruit has begun to show. Fascinating transitions to this one and I was sorry to see the glass empty.

(Bottle) Pours black with lasting brown head. Full bodied with an oily mouthfeel. Roasted coffee and caramalized brown sugar notes. Slightly bitter, but nothing overpowering. I liked this stout quite a bit.

Ibrew2or3 (8282) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - DEC 13, 2006
16.9 oz bottle. Poured black with thin brown head. The aroma is mostly cream soda with lesser amounts of roasted and burnt malts. The flavor starts off semi sweet with coffee, roasted malts, a sense of cream soda and the introduction to the burnt and chocolate malts that follow. The rest of the taste into the after-bit is a rather nice mixture of burnt and chocolate malts.

Bottle: Smells of chocolate, licorice, smokey malts, coffee and tastes of the same. Very smoothe bitter finish. Good stout!
