Draught Can. Thanks to Bob Mack for the can! Pours a deep dark brown with a pleasant rolling head that builds up slowly. Has an aroma of sweet chocolate. Nice flavor of dark chocolate, but not too overpowering. Lingers on the palate. A quite excellent sweet stout that I highly recommend.

The aroma is a sweet chocolate. The appearance is a deep chocolaty black and has a nice thick tan head. The initial flavor is of ginger and finishes with a chocolate liquer taste on the palate.

14.9 oz can - Aroma is think with sweet chocolate malt. Pours a really nice black with a medium thick head that just sits there and leaves a ton of lacing. Flavor is double chocolate, malt and milky. So sweet and tasty but very one dimensional. More like a piece of candy then a beer. Palate is smooth and creamy. A nice dessert beer, but not something I would drink just to drink.

UPDATED: SEP 5, 2005 Good. But not great. A little bitter. A little sweet. But not quite rich or full enough for a beer this dark. I was a bit dissapointed after the high reviews. Maybe it was because I could only find it in a can.

Pours dark with a thin tan head. Sunlight gleams a ruby laser red through the glass. Mild mocha aroma. Chocolate comes on in the aftertaste... the sip is pretty mild. Not bad, but as a follow up to last night’s beer (Rogue’s Shakespeare Stout), this one doesn’t quite hit me as well as that one did. Smooth, mild, decently bubbly, chocolate aftertaste, and worth a try - but there are better ones out there.
