Dark brown pour, smallish head. Great aroma of bitter, dark chocolate. The flavor features a little more roast, espresso, and even a little vanilla, but still plenty of chocolate presence. Palate is a little light, but otherwise this is a good brew.

Tap at Clubhouse BFD. Nitro. Pours black, nitro head. Aroma is caramel, sweet chocolate, smells like a werther’s original. Flavor is caramel, chocolate. Nice but super thin body. Watery. Wayyyy too thin. Oh well. Nice nose.

Cybercat (5111) - Georgia, USA - AUG 26, 2016
Taps dark chocolate brown with a thin pale buff head. Aroma delivers strong sweet chocolate and roasted malt notes. Milk chocolate dominates the flavor while sharing the stage with roast malt and subtle woody hops and nutty tones. Mouthfeel presents decent body, OK fizz, and a chocolate finish. Get Detroit decadent!

Pours a black color with a tan head. Aroma is mostly chocolate with coffee, roasted malts, and molasses. Flavor is bitter chocolate with some coffee and roasted malt. Not quite as thick as I was going but still good.

On nitro at Opal Divine’s pours thick black with a creamy tan head that lasts. Sweet vanilla aroma. Flavor is pure chocolate. Good medium bodied feel on nitro.

Holtguy (166) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - FEB 15, 2016
Pours black with creamy off white head dissipates to about 1/8 inch. Slight lacing. Aroma is hot fudge sundae complete with whipped cream. This aroma seems artificial. Taste is like a thin bodied, smooth oatmeal stout mixed with Hershey’s syrup. Not bad, but doesn’t seem artfully constructed. I don’t know, maybe I’m being too harsh.

Opaque black with a medium sized, tan head that left nice lacing on the glass. Aroma of roasted malts, some cocoa, dark fruits. Taste of bitter roast, cocoa, on the thinner side.

Aroma is very malty with a pleasant but maybe fake chocolate/vanilla smell. Pours gorgeous with a large head that lasts a little while (but not long enough to leave lacing). Flavor surprisingly lacks much. Very watery and a little bitter at first, with notes of coffee, chocolate, and whipped cream on the back end. Aftertaste is actually much better than the initial flavor. Brew is too thin - they should thicken it up and increase the flavor a bit. This has so much potential but falls short.
