I was really surprised to sign on RateBeer and see how highly rated this beer was. It struck me as bland and sweet. Flavor is sweet, with little bitterness or sourness, mouthfeel is flat and thick, syrupy. Not much carbonation. I suppose if people rate this beer on smoothness alone, I could see its appeal. But I found it uninteresting. The aroma was featureless. There’s little roast or hops evident in the aroma, only a fairly plain malt. This was an unremarkable beer that I drank quickly and could forget. About the only thing I think it has going for it is that the medium-high alcohol content is well-masked, but I think it’s masked more by the sugar than anything else. I thought this beer way too sweet. I’m not a huge fan of this style of beer, but I thought this a particularly poor example of it as well, and I’m completely perplexed as to how this beer is so highly rated and has won so many awards.

12 oz. bottle. Pour is a classic stout, jet black, khaki head with decent lacing. Smell is the classic coffee/dark chocolate with notes of marshmallow. Taste is mellower with coffee and bakers chocolate up front and slightly sweet milk chocolate towards the end. Finish is clean with some faint hops and subtle lingering flavors. Good example of the style and easy to drink.

Pitch black pour, ain’t much head here. Dark malt, hop, oak, coffee and chocolate on the nose. Taste is coffee, oak, malt and dark espresso on the back end. A good clean stout

italianjohn (2595) - Penndel, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 4, 2014
Black pour with a half inch thick frothy off white head and spotty to thick lacing .... deep roasted aroma and dark chocolate .... taste is very dry with a nice deep roasted malt, light coffee and dark chocolatey flavors ..... very dry, and thin on the mouthfeel .... abv hidden well and very highly drinkable dry stout .... medium bodied which only makes it even more sessionable

A dark brown pour with about finger of lacing tan head. Aroma is roasted with chocolate, coffee, and hints of bitter wood. Taste is well rounded and with a full body. A moderate sweet flavor with a medium duration and a slight bitter finish. Overall a great beer!

Pour is very dark brown, bordering black, with a light caramel head and some large bubbles. Nose is heavy coffee roast, slightly muddled roasted malt, a bit chalky and ashy, faint chocolate. Taste follows suite, heavy roasted malt and coffee, lighter chalky ash and a but more chocolate. Medium body, assertive carbonation, crisp dry finish with lingering roast.

Pours dark with a creamy head. Nice roasted malt aroma. Fairly complex with notes of dried fruit and a smooth finish. Well made beer.

Wow, so unexpected from a brewer that isn’t very well known, but they do this one right. Black oily pour into the pint glass, tiny head that is gone in a flash. Almost an Imperial Stout aroma with the coffee and vanilla, but no alcohol burn, in fact this might be the smoothest dry stout I’ve had. Finish is wonderful.

Very light in flavor for a stout. I am not saying it is bad but there is nothing that stands out
