maxwelldeux (3548) - Everett, Washington, USA - MAY 17, 2014
Bottle. Pours a very dark brown color with a moderate light brown head on there. Nose is extremely roasty with some subtle licorice elements coming through on it. Taste is extremely roasty and fairly bitter, giving the stout a hefty bite to it. Really quite a nice beer.

wmflynn (15) - Northumberland, ENGLAND - DEC 1, 2013
Bottle from Total Wine, Vegas. Whoa, huge flavour. Pours thick black with a massive brown head. Head remains at 1cm through half a glass. Malty, hoppy, chocolate, finishes boozy, hoppy, metallic. This is an over-the-top beer, just as it claims to be. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

joeneugs (3175) - Livermore, California, USA - NOV 22, 2013
On draft at Tap 25. It pours dark brown/black with a small brown head. The aroma has lots of fudge and chocolate chip cookies. Hints of coffee. The flavor is very dirty and heavily roasted with freshly turned soil and dark bitter chocolate. Wow. Super ashy in the finish with a huge body. This stuff is beastly. Perhaps a bit over the top with the black malts.
