Tap @ Beer Temple. Dark color, short creamy head. Aroma of coffee, slight milky, some hop, roasted malt. Malty taste, creamy milk, milk chocolat. Quite enjoyable. HogTownHarry (7086) - Toronto (Harbourfront), CANADA - OCT 12, 2006
Bottle (12oz). Shared with biegaman, his bottle. Deep almost opaque brown-black, small tan head. Deep bitter roasty aroma, coffee grounds, some oily baker’s chocolate, syrupy-sweet on warming. Taste - syrupy, a little cola-like, still very bitter and coffee-grounds, syrupy-oily finish. Pretty thick, sticky, still, harsh mouthfeel - a little disappointing.

Dark brown color/ tan head. Nice chocolate, molasses aromas. smooth medium body. medium roasted malt, chocolate, astringent tobacco flavors. kramer (6991) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 8, 2006
12 oz bottle, via slob. Pours a clear very dark brown, almost black, colored body under a small fizzy brown head that receded to a thin film. Aroma is roasty and chocolaty with a nice hoppy note. Some oats, burnt malt, and chalk. Flavor is burnt and roasty up front, slightly astringent, with a nice hoppy bitterness. Finishes with some coffee, chalk, and peanut skins. Mouthfeel is medium bodied with a good bit of fizzy forced carbonation. Finishes moderately dry. Overall, your basic Sweet Stout. Nothing impressive but it was drinkable.

Brownish orange and dark. Good head that lasts. Spicy and roasty initially. The body progresses through a range of hoppy flavors with that bitter burnt malt lingering. Finishes a little bit too sour/bitter for my liking though and body is a bit on the watery side. Not as sweet as I would expect though that isnt necessarily a bad thing. A very unusual beer. egajdzis (6830) - Pennsburg, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 28, 2004
Poured a very dark brown, with a small tan head. Sweet roasted malt and mild chocolate in the aroma. Sweet roast and creamy oat in the taste. Beerman6686 (6611) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 13, 2006
Got this bottle out of a variety pack from wildgoose. It was decent for a stout with a hint of chocolate, but a bit bland with hardly any aftertaste jgb9348 (6583) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - JAN 30, 2003
Looks as black as tar with a dark brown head which fades fast. Smells very strong and sweet with hints of caramel and sugar. Thin bodied compared to the colour, but a nice burnt caramel taste to a mellow body. Not a bad beer, but from the colour, I was expecting more. BBB63 (6567) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - AUG 22, 2004
Bottle: Nearly opaque hue with small fizzy tan head and minimal lace. The aroma has notes of mocha, hazelnut, caramelized malts, oats, aromatic hops, prune, espresso, and earthy yeast esters. The taste starts bittersweet with lots of mocha, caramel and oatmeal on top of of the bitters. The finish is coffee infused with a fruity twang. The feel is fizzy, lively, and a touch sharp. The taste was a letdown after the aroma. Seemed unable to let go of a full flavor spectrum. Still worthy of a try. Thanks Jeff for the bottle.
