UPDATED: JUL 19, 2014 Enjoyed a pint of this at the brew-pub in Greenville SC. I was very impressed with this brew, and despite not usually being a fan of stouts i declared this to be a newfound local favorite. Other than the initial impression of a weak roasty aroma, this beer was phenomenal. Had a great strong flavor intensity of roasted malt, coffee, caramel, etc. I suppose a relatively standard flavor profile for a stout, but it was the fullness of the flavor that distinguished this beer. Finished smooth with an aftertaste of coffee. Had a pitch black color with off white head. Strongly recommended! Also paired incredibly well with smoked gouda and bleu cheese of my entree that evening. ---Rated via Beer Buddy

Tastes weak, needs more body. What flavor is present is good. A combination of light chocolate and coffe, both toasty and a little nutty. Faint carbonation.

tronraner (2459) - Walland, Tennessee, USA - SEP 7, 2009
Draught at the brewpub. Pours brown-black with khaki head. The aroma is slightly smoky with thorough roastiness, some chocolate and toffeee notes. The flavor is clean roastiness with peanut notes and a mild acidity. Bitter chocolate and wood come out in the finish. Definitely on the lighter side, but not too bad.

Dark color, pretty much black, with a medium sized tan head. The first flavor I noticed was coffee then some light roasted maltiness with bitter hops following. I thought this beer was a tad thin and I really could sum it up with coffee and some bitter hops being pretty much what I got out of it. Still, it wasn’t bad at all and definitely a decent drink.
