A wonderfully rich stout with a sweet, smooth introduction. Deep-dark amber in color with a creamy head. Satisfying finish that balances the chocolate and coffee notes with the subtle creaminess of the body. A very drinkable stout!

Some hop aroma. Mid brown coloured and fruity with a crisp and slightly bitter dry finish. bsierra (213) - Vista, California, USA - JUL 21, 2008
UPDATED: AUG 5, 2008 Bottle sample from Wesley TG Beer. Pours a very deep dark brown with interesting amber highlights and a nice rocky tan head. Nose is that of molasses with a bit of licorice and chocolate malts. Flavor is very malt driven with an underlying sweetness, and has peaks of cappacino, earth and smoke. I poured this a little too cold, it did have a bit more flavor when it warmed up a tad. All and all it’s a pretty good stout, something a little different from the norm. friggz81 (1) - USA - MAY 23, 2008 does not count
This beer has a chocolate aftertaste!?! Its strong in alcohol content!?!? What can be better?
