Soonah (1120) - Tulsa, Oklahoma, USA - APR 29, 2009
The pour was ultra-dark brown, almost black. A short tan to brown head formed and there was a little spot of lacing here and there. The aroma was chocolate, boozy, caramel and brown sugar. The flavor was chocolate and booze mostly with some roasted malt and caramel thrown in. Thick, creamy mouthfeel. Rich.

Cavie (3808) - Fort Worth, Texas, USA - APR 29, 2009
UPDATED: OCT 9, 2010 So dark that I cant see through it. Creamy head that never goes away. Stout smell, cocoa and roasted nuts. Creamy and smooth mouthfeel; a coating beer. Roasted caramel flavor, with a nice finish. No lingering bitterness. Quite good. Quite. 4.5
RE-RATE 10/9/10 On tap at Overtime sports bar. Im rating this with a stuffed up nose. Yay. Solid black appearance with a brown upwards cascading head. Aroma is dusty and cocoa. Flavor is nitro savory. Chemical and lightly roasted. Finish is dry but maintains a wet mouthfeel. Dry in bitterness.

Dogbrick (8310) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - APR 3, 2009
On draught at The Pub. Pours brownish-black with a compact light brown head tha diminishes steadily. Rings of lacing on the glass. Roasted coffee and malt in the nose. Medium, smooth body with coffee and malt flavors underscored by mild hops. The finish is creamy coffee and malt. Above average all around.

kidmartinek (3736) - austin, Texas, USA - MAR 29, 2009
Dark pour with thick, dense, 1 inch foam head. Good, strong milky thick malt aroma with clear and present hops. Mouthfeek is like 2%. Laces like a blanket. Flavor is full and rich with malt, dry hoppiness, and an oak taste. A little less filling than the most popular stout. Only slight alcohol presence. A very tasty beverage.

zapprentice (314) - East Setauket, New York, USA - MAR 22, 2009
Tap at Deep Ellum. Medium head that took forever to die down. Very mild aroma of some coffee and chocolate notes. Very blah flavor with no body. Not a good beer

fredandboboflo (1570) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 22, 2009
Nitro at Deep Ellum. Aroma somewhat vegetal and metallic with very light hints of chocolate. Flavor again uninspiring, just basic sweet malt. Rather watery. Big meh.

bu11zeye (11971) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - MAR 3, 2009
(Nitro) Pours a cascading opaque black body with a thick creamy beige head. Aroma of dark fruit, roasted malt, and caramel. Flavor of peat, roasted malt, nuts, raisins, and prunes with a creamy mouthfeel.

BMan1113VR (7867) - Los Angeles, California, USA - MAR 1, 2009
Nitro Tap. Pours with a milky, off-white head and a dark-dark brown body. Aroma of coffee, raisins, nuts, nutmeg, figs and persimmon cake. Taste is chocolate, raisins, nuts, brown sugar and light coffee. Lots of stuff on the nose and tongue for a low alcohol nitro tap beer!

ilovedarkbeer (2300) - Dallas, Texas, USA - MAR 1, 2009
Pours a dark black brown color with reddish highlights and a creamy tan head. Notes of raisins, dark fruits, caramelized brown sugar. Just very sweet and dark. Nose sucks and you get a bit of graham and sweetness but the taste is pretty solid.
