cvillebeer (134) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - MAY 1, 2005
Ive had this fresh and 1 year old. The sample Im drinking has about 5 and a half months in the bottle. The hop aroma is still quite noticable, with herbs and spices blending with the roasted malts nicely. The color is a tanslucent black: red highlights if held to the light just right. The head faded fairly quickly and there is no lacing to speak of. The hops come through in the flavor as well and this finishes hoppy, caramelly and dark. This is not a dry, roasty stout but as slightly sweet complex one. Excellent and a perennial favorite.

Goblincat (399) - Petersburg, Michigan, USA - MAY 1, 2005
Nice dark pour, with a light brown head. Hops and roast malt nose aroma. As for the taste, I have to say this stuff is pretty darn good... A nice complex mix roast malts, bitter hops, and a hint of chocolate. A bit too bitter for an imperial stout in my taste. Hides the alcohol very well.

Skyhawk1 (7) - Worcester, Massachusetts, USA - APR 30, 2005 does not count
Dark black with medium brown head that forms a thin ring when it goes down and coats the outer edge of the glass with a trace of fine foam with every movement the beer makes. Aroma of hops with a hint of alcohol, roasted malt, and dark chocolate. Smooth mouthfeel with nice pleasent touch of carbonation. Delicous roasted malt flavor with hops bitterness blended in with the chocolate and coffee hints and maybe even some smoked barbeque. One of my current favorites, always looking forward to enjoying one of these.

CJfromPhilly (140) - Aston, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 26, 2005
Pours a pitch black with a fluffy light tan/beige head thats sticks around for a minute & clings to the glass with every sip. Aroma is of malt & light smoke. Taste, ahhh. Roasty, toasty malts mixed with light smoke, coffee (black, no cream or sugar), and unsweetened chocolate. Hop bitterness, & a slight hint of alcohol which is almost TOO well hidden for a beer packing a 9.1% abv punch. The mixture of coffee, chocolate, & hops clings to your tongue well after the last sip is gone. Overall: this is the stout that made me appreciate stouts!

bubslang (438) - Kentwood, Michigan, USA - APR 25, 2005
Deep dark brown with a large brown head with nice lacing. roasty malt aroma, with some hops as well. Nice full mouthfeel, with roasted malt goodness and hints of chocolate, caremal, and coffee leading to a refreshing bitter finish. Very nice.

Styles (2014) - Lincoln Park, Michigan, USA - APR 24, 2005
Bottle Sept 08 04. Pours dark oily black with thick beige head. Lots of licorice and chocolate in the aroma. Flavor is the same with some dark fruit/wine-like woodsy character to it. Almost no coffee to speak of, which I am fine with because I cant stand coffee.

FoolishMortal (990) - San Diego, California, USA - APR 23, 2005
Pours opaque black, small light brown head with some lingering. Spicy hop aroma mixed with alcohol. Some roasted notes. Almost sweet, chocolate nose descends into a hearty roast malt flavor. Residual hop spiciness and some bitterness joins the roasted flavors in the finish. Mouthfeel is surprisingly smooth, so much so that somewhat masks the fullness. Very little alcohol character at all, besides the aromatics, and a lingering warmth after the finish.

OhioDad (2492) - Hilliard, Ohio, USA - APR 22, 2005
Black as night with a nice brown head that lathers on the sides of the glass. Aroma was malt, some hops, and a little coffee. First sip and I could tell I loved this one.. Sweet roasty goodness hides in those black depths. Dark chocolate, coffee, malt, cherries and maybe even some walnut all come through in this wonderful tasting stout. The palate is thick and a little bitter with the hops at the end but it really coats your mouth. This beer is amazingly complex and new flavors appear with each sip it seems. Amazingly warming yet no sign of the high alcohol content. Glad I picked this one as a session ender. Fantastic!

flemdawg (561) - Rowlett, Texas, USA - APR 21, 2005
Deep black color witha foamy brown and a bit of lacing. Chocolate hit the nose first, but a dose of malts followed soon after, with chocolate next, and then hops made an apperance. Chocolatey, coffee, , dark fruit, roasted malts, and hops in the taste. Thick feel all the way down. I like this one.
