Opaque in the pint glass with 1"of foam that dissipates to an 1/8 inch , light brown layer .

Appealing smell of dark malts , coffee , and slight chocolate . No hop aroma that I can discern .

Taste is not as full as I expected , coffee hits first with some dark malt and chocolate/bitterness that leads to a pleasant , lingering finish .

Mouth feel is light with an amount of carbonation (light) that dos'nt get in the way of the flavors .

Quite drinkable .,with a taste that grows on you . I'll have another .

Bottled on 8/30/04, Batch #1606

Appearance: Reddish brown color with a light coating of swirling bubbles on top. The color was very clean and dense.

Smell: A sweet roasty aroma with notes of caramel and molasses. Even in a sniffer though the aroma was not very full or strong. Sort of meek for the style.

Taste: The first and most noticable flavor is a big bitterness followed by a roasty flavor. There is a definate sweet maltiness to this beer with a soy sauce flavor closing it out. It is a bit watery at the end and it does not maintain its full flavor through out the taste.

Mouthfeel: A bit sandy yet silky at the same time. Nice texture save for the thin ending.

Drinkability: This is a good beer for the style and given the choice I would probably drink it again. It's not a homerun, but it is certianly not a dud either.

The beer arrived at the table a deep black with amber highlights when held to the light. The head was tan, nice, and laced the glass.

The aroma was huge chocolate and coffee. Very nice.

The flavor was coffee bitterness in the front with chocolate and a slight acidity. No sweetness in the flavor and fairly bitter.

The finish was dry coffee well into the aftertaste. The body was medium full.

A little more sweetness and body would have put this beer on the map. Still a nice drinkable stout however.

Pint glass at the Bass Lake Draft House in Holly Springs, NC.
