DrSilverworm (5022) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - APR 8, 2012
22oz bottle. Good, brown head. Black color. Good lace. Nice, drier texture, bigger body. Ligther, crisp carbonation. Slight oiliness in the aftertaste, but it’s not too bad. Great, hoppy aroma, on a roasty dark malt chocolatey base. Some dark and tropical fruity aromas. Nice, bitter sweet roasty taste. Very enjoyable hoppy stout.

Pawola22 (3262) - Woodridge, Illinois, USA - AUG 29, 2012
22oz bottle from Dutch’s Bar & Bottle Shop in Cincinnati, OH. Pours a very deep brown, mostly black colored body with a finger-width, creamy, dark brown head that dissipates slowly and leaves a moderate lacing. Aroma is sweet caramels as well as a light chocolate and molasses up front with a moderate dark fruitiness and a light roast backing. Flavor is sweet initially with a pretty woody hopping. Plummy dark fruits, caramel, chocolate, and a light molasses before an ashy roast comes in. Finishes sweet, but somewhat bitter and dry from the ashy roasts and woody hops. Lengthy aftertaste following a medium body and a moderate carbonation. Overall, this grew on me more as it warmed. Pretty sweet, but very roasty and fairly bitter. Hides the alcohol well and stays pretty easy drinking. Not bad.

ReggieDunlap (2924) - The dub c, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 3, 2012
Pours deep brown/black with a thick mocha head...nice lacing and retention. Aroma is big and roasty with lots of dark fruit...fig, plum...a bit boozy. Flavor follows suit and adds some burnt notes...very roasty, very hoppy...nice bitterness. Mouthfeel is medium/full and the finish is burnt and bitter...very dry and lingering, warming.

brnandersen (1668) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - SEP 17, 2013
Sample from 650 ml. bottle. Black with a reddish hue. Dense, tan head. Sweet aroma with roasted malts, vanilla, coconut, floral and citrus hops. Hints of chocolate. Taste is sweet. Medium body with a creamy texture. Long lasting, roasted finish. Nice stout - I like the leaning towards Tropical...

umich03jm (1572) - Flat Rock, Michigan, USA - APR 15, 2013
Bomber from trade with DrSilverworm. Pours pitch black with a big khaki head that fades normally, some lacing too. Aroma is roasty and chocolaty. Pretty nice. Light fruitiness too which must be the tropical fruit. Taste is sweet and bitter at the same time. Medium roast, light chocolate, tropical fruit, licorice. Finish is smooth but leaves a slight chalky taste. Thick and creamy mouthfeel. Solid stout.
