Dark pour from a bottle with about an inch of tan head. Vanilla, cream, and light chocolate on the nose. Smooth, sweet, clean stout that tastes exactly like it smells.

DandyWolfFloyd (641) - Jim Thorpe, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 8, 2014
Aroma is a nice chocolate, coffee, roasty malt. Appearance is a clean dark body with a full than froth head. The taste is a nice sweet balance of coffee, chocolate, and smokey roast. The palate is full, creamy, with a nice soft carbonation, and a long smooth finish. A really nice example of the Stout class! Must try.

Sweet, roasted chocolate aroma. Semisweet chocolate flavors, the good stuff, not that cheap crap. Roasted espresso, cream, vanilla, toast and sweet toffee as well. Excellent feel. Creamy and just heavy enough to support the flavor.

Bottle sample at a tasting at avrashi’s place. Thanks troubles. Dark to black, not opaque, with a small tan head. Roasty aroma with dark chocolate, a bit of coffee and a smoky note. Sweetish and slightly bitterish flavor, roasty, with dark chocolate, a bit of cocoa, some coffee and a finish with some bitterness and a smoky note. Medium-bodied. Very good.

On tap at the abbey. Pours dark brown with a small head. Nutty and sweet, not overly roasty, nice clean stout. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Jet black in color and I don't see any light getting through this brew. I see a wisp of light brown foam on the top of this beer. I smell rich dark malt,roasted barley, and black licorice. The mouthfeel is silky smooth and is a nice contrast to the bitterness from the roasted barley that fades into a light sweetness at the back of the palate. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
