TheAlum (5701) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - JUN 23, 2014
Draft on tap at The Bridge (St Louis, MO). Pours a deep blackish roasty pour, a gentle brownish ruby glow on the bottom and edges. Frothy tannish head atop stays as a decent frothy layer, sticks around as a mellow ring, laces well enough. Aromas are a bit of cocoa, darker sweetness with some toast, toffee and a faint waft of vanilla. Initial is lighter end of the fold, some toffee and toast. Gentle touches of coffee and biscuit, and mellow coffee. Backend is a bit toasty, more roast elements with just a bit of body. Small, approachable with decent roast and dryness on the backend. Not bad. Perhaps a touch underbodied but that works in this heat.

1/7/2014. From tap. Pours black with a tan head. A little thin mouth feel. Coffee, chocolate, roasted mast aromas. Light bitterness on the finish, but lacking some body.

Crash_the_dog (150) - Fairway, Kansas, USA - DEC 6, 2013
Based on looks and mouthfeel alone, this beer could easily be mistaken for a coca-cola product. The head is bubbly to the point of annoyance, and the flavor is straight-forward American stout. Slightly bitter, but mostly unremarkable. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Mora2000 (5695) - McKinney, Texas, USA - AUG 15, 2013
Dark brown pour with a tan head. The aroma is full of chocolate, cocoa and roasted malt. The flavor is very similar. I get a lot of cocoa notes as well as roasted malt and nuttiness. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

vyvvy (3992) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - MAR 29, 2013
Sampled at UCBC Wolpertinger 2013 - Pours dark brown with a tan head. The aroma has lots of chocolate, smooth roast and some coffee. It has a medium smooth body with a light amount of carbonation. The taste has bitter roasty malt, coffee and cocoa powder. The finish is very bitter and quite a bit of coffee. Pretty good.

seymour (1435) - Maplewood, Missouri, USA - FEB 2, 2013
Sampled on tap at the 2nd annual Urban Chestnut Wolpertinger party in a dimple mug. It poured an opaque, very dark brown colour, red hue at the edges, with fluffy, long-lasting beige foam and lots of lace. Perfect appearance. Aromas of malt, roasty grains, coffee, chocolate, toast. Flavour was just as good and complex: bready, tart, toasty, hints of plums, raisins, black coffee and dark chocolate again. Utterly delicious. Medium body and carbonation, chewy mouthfeel, lingering multilayered bittersweet aftertaste. Definitely another highlight of the event. Keep it up, 2nd Shift!

Bottle shared at Brad Fest 2012 in Minneapolis, MN. This bottle was a gusher when opened. Pours a dark brown color with tan head. Dark malt, roasty aromas. Nice roasty flavor. Very carbonated.

adnielsen (9081) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - SEP 15, 2012
Bottle @ B.R.A.D. Fest, courtesy of jcnielsen. Possibly infected, super bubbly head. Pours a brown appearance with a huge brown head. Spicy, toasted coffee, light chocolate, a touch fruity aroma. Slightly burnt, light chocolate, lightly roasted coffee, a bit friuty flavor. Way overcarbonated but I don’t think it’s infected.
