12 oz bottle pours pitch black. with a tan head that’s gone almost immediately. Not sure what I was expecting from this brew. Pretty flawed. Searching for chocolate, but mostly finding roast, corn, and squash. A serious DMS problem. Flavor is more corn, some licorice, and finishes astringent. Not very happy with this.

Tap at Stagshead on a cold spring afternoon. Pours black with beige head and nice lacing. Nose of rich chocolate malt. Tastes like chocolate ice cream, with earth, malts, vanilla, and light smoke. Very creamy smooth mouthfeel and nice finish.

Opaque black with a thin tan head. Creamy nose with mild chocolate maltiness. Creamy chocolate taste, but no overpowering sweetness. A wave of bitterness towards the front, but it fades quickly. Smooth creaminess, with a bit of carbonation up front that comes and goes quickly. Nice lacing on the glass and the alcohol is hidden well.

Very surprising! Pours black with little tan head. Aroma is mostly chocolate and malt. Medium bodied, slick in mouth. Finishes sweet and chocolaty. Good stuff.

12 ounce bottle. Black liquid topped by a medium-sized creamy tan head. Light espresso roasted malt aroma. Subtle smoked malt flavor with hints of cocoa, burnt caramel and currants. Tasty and flavorful without the harshness of most Imperial Stouts. Creamy mocha finish.

Pours near black with a creamy tan head. Aroma of toasted nut in syrup. Taste is coffee dark chocolate with a bit of burn in the finish. Smooth without a lot of roasted aftertaste. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Draft to snifter. Looks good; black with beige lacing. Smells and tastes sweet and malty with notes of chocolate and a nice, smooth mouthfeel. Solid beer.

The 72 pours dark with a brown head that leaves little lacing. The aroma is fairly weak but malty chocolate goodness and molasses. The flavor is much better than the aroma. Overall this was a nice little surprise. I hope to enjoy more in the future. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

dark black brew with light tan head. nice body thick enough with a flavor of wheat vegetable and then some cherry. bit of smoke wafts in after time but a hint of the first hit kinda sets it back . some saucy gravy (worcestershire) in aroma.
