JDBaker11058 (1269) - Maryland, USA - AUG 13, 2013
Appearance: near black, with two fingers of silky, creamy dark brown head and decent lacing. Aroma: milk and dark chocolate, granite dust, chalk, cream, hint of peanut shell and café mocha. Taste: more coffee in the taste than the aroma, with decent bittersweet dark chocolate to balance. Finish: smooth, slightly mineral, dry, and a bit bitter. Notes: Better than average chocolate stout, and WAY better as it warmed up. First sip I was all like "eww" but by the end I was all like "not bad, brah".

coreyc1221 (260) - Truckee, California, USA - AUG 4, 2013
Light nutty aroma but a surprising lack of aroma. hmm. Nigerian black color with a dark brown head. Has a very subtle zing at first then the strange sensation that i can only compare to cheaply cut cocaine. Shitty if i would have paid $50 for that taste but since it was only a buck 70, i’m ok with it. Still it has some artificial tone to it. uneventful.

Pours dark with a tan head. Aroma of chocolate and hops. Taste of dark chocolate and cigar with strong bitter after taste. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

FROTHINGSLOSH (4918) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 6, 2013
Sampled from a 22 oz brown bottle this beer poured a black color with a small foamy dark tan head that left a bit of lacing. The aroma was dry and roasty with faint notes of coffee, chocolate and floral hops. The flavor was dry, roasty and bitter with a bit of coffee and floral hops but no chocolate. Medium length finish and medium body. Disappointing.

Bamaboy1975 (242) - Suffolk, Virginia, USA - MAR 30, 2013
A finger and half of tan head on a pitch black body. The aroma is roasted malt and a hint of chocolate. The taste is a robust roasted malt with the chocolate balancing but not surpassing the malt. great balance. Slick texture with moderate carbonation and medium to heavy body. A solid stout. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

CJack (37) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - MAR 25, 2013
Bottle pour, nice dark coloring with decent head. Aroma of roasted malt (coffee, burnt) with faint hints of cocoa. Taste is entirely roasted malt character: smoky, acidic. Smooth mouthfeel. Nice label and branding. Unfortunately the marketing is a lot better than the product. ---Rated whilst imbibing

climberbob (108) - Virginia, USA - MAR 16, 2013
Bottle. Thin head that does not linger. Not much chocolate on the nose. Some chocolate and bitterness. Lighter / thinner chocolate stout compared to others but still a tasty beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

GIJOE (635) - North Berwick, Maine, USA - MAR 8, 2013
Pours nearly black. Thin head gone in a minute, no lacing. Nose is cocoa. Taste pretty much the same with nice dark bitter chocolate notes. Slightly thin mouthfeel, but overall not a bad beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
