aracauna (3552) - Georgia, USA - JAN 15, 2004
Pours a not-quite-opaque black, brown around the edges. The head is weak and fades into a weather pattern. The aroma is odd. Something like a chocolate-flavored sour cream. That sour cream thing had me concerned, but at the first sip, I noticed no sourness and I never did pick up a sourness in the flavor. The flavor is heavy on the cream, slight coffee and chocolate. The mouthfeel is slick and oily. Quite the interesting beer.

madsberg (11648) - Sborg, DENMARK - FEB 2, 2004
Bottled: Dark black brown coloured. Uneven light brown head. Coffee, some fruits, chocolate in the aroma. Flavour is well roasted. Is sweet and have notes of cocoa and coffee. Smooth and pleasant, but imo a bit vague. Have a dry roasty finish.

Indra (2711) - Suburbia, Kansas, USA - FEB 6, 2004
Sweet, chocolatey aroma, mildly roasty with hints of coffee and burnt sugar. Solid ebony color, largely opaque with a slight, subsiding head. Lots of malty chocolate flavor, progressing to a toasty, coffeeish, and lightly hopped finish and drying out a bit. Palate is smooth, effervescence low, with a medium body and rather thin mouthfeel. Overall, mellow but pleasant and highly quaffable.

brewblackhole (1588) - Muskego, Wisconsin, USA - APR 3, 2004
No pop when I opened the cap, dark chocolate aroma with a hint of fig or raisin, thick sweet chocolate and raisin taste with a very bitter aftertaste. Stayed bitter the whole way. Wouldn't call it smooth.

argo0 (13886) - Washington DC, USA - APR 12, 2004
Black body topped by smallish creamy tan head. Aroma is coffee, roasty, chocolate, light cherry, cream. Taste is medium sweet, milked coffee, finishing coffee bitter. Creamy medium body with mild acidity.

MaxPower (961) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - AUG 5, 2004
Dark jet black in color, has a small creamy brown head, not much lacing. Roasted caramel, chocolate and coffee aromas, sweet and smokey plum-chocolate flavor. Medium-body, mild carbonation with a smooth and creamy mouthfeel, a pretty good easy drinking stout.

jzzbassman (1588) - Arlington, Texas, USA - AUG 14, 2004
Black with an almost non-existent head. As it warms, the roasted aromas really dominate. Very thick coating mouth, with a smooth creamy taste. A band-aid type aftertaste. Very nice sweet stout.

3fourths (9296) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - SEP 15, 2004
Had to force a head out of this one... and it was dark brown and quite thin. The aroma is a musty roasted coffee bean, bourbon, wood and burnt licorice. Very good. Medium bodied, lacking carbonation until a small amount shows up in the swallow, but still not enough to satisfy. Makes up for it in the thick flavors, creamy oak barrel and charred chocolate malts. Very heavy, and a little astringent, with a dry wood and hop quality. Quite unique. This is a bottle which I have seen a million times but have put off purchasing, so its nice to find that its something drinkable.

Cornfield (5570) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - FEB 4, 2005
UPDATED: JUL 5, 2005 Very nice. Pouring dark, dark brown and syrup-like with a meager brown head, this has strong roasted/burnt malt aromas along with those of bittersweet chocolate. Smooth in the mouth, yet carrying a bit of a bitter hop snap, this is chocolate and coffee flavored, all well roasted, with just a hint of smoke and some sweet caramel near the end. Finshes on a dry coffee note. Nice.
