Sampled at the 2003 Vermont Brewers Festival.

Pours with a deep, deep black body with a thin tan head. The aroma is quite pleasant, with some nice coffee and nutty notes. Taste was quite good and smooth, rolling over the tongue with nice smooth maltiness, but it came off as a bit weak on the finish. But very drinkable, and rather pleasant. (344 characters)

This stout is very dark brown, perhaps bordering on black. The head was tan, and quite creamy, though it shrinks down to a stable, thin layer. Lacing is lovely! Nose is roasty and coffee-like, though very mild for the style. It was smooth on the tongue, but the body was less than medium. I tend to like stouts with more body than this one has. Flavor has more coffee and roasty malt notes, and it then proceeds to become quite dry and bitter at the finish. It could have more overall "oomph" as far as flavors go, though. Still, it's a smooth, easy-drinking bier.

Excellent stout. Dark, well roasted, carmel taste. Went down smooth with a pleasant bitter taste. I enjoyed this beer very much. Not over filling either, did not leave me with that sometimes "bloated" feeling as experienced with other stouts. A gem. (249 characters)

A solid stout. Black, black colour with a heavy tan, sticky head and thick lace and swirls. Black malt nose with mild roastedness. Roasted malt flavors with chocolate taste that becomes more evident with warmth. Dry medium-heavy body.

Great beverage. The right dry body with roasted malts and hints of chocolate. Cheers! (329 characters)
