Very very smooth and creamy. Chocolate aftertaste. Thin in the body. Very subtle porter like qualities in this gem of a stout. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours very dark, almost black, with a deep tan/brown head, very dense. Very complex taste, sweet with a roasty touch. Great stuff. Not as good as Kalamazoo, but really good.

Shakesbeere (219) - Oxford, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - DEC 16, 2008
UPDATED: APR 28, 2009 A dark brown poor; smells of malt and roasted barley. Taste has characters of coffee, chocolate, and honey with a slight fruity background - either cherry or berries. An even mixture of flavors with a creamy roasted undertone. An excellent brew; goes extremely well with chocolate desserts.

Pours dark brown with little to no tan head. Aroma is roasted and sweet malts. Taste is bitter dark chocolate, caramel malts, other things that are dark. Finishes pretty bitter. It’s ok, but certainly not their best stuff.

KawaBomber (218) - New Jersey, USA - JUL 14, 2008
12oz Bottle: Pours virtually black w/ a small brown head. Aroma is of sweet malts & grain. Sweet malts fade into a nice roasted coffee flavor towards the end. Aftertaste is all roasted (yet sweet) malt/mocha flavors. Very smooth & creamy mouthfeel. Yummy!
