On tap @ Chelsea. Very nice stout. Pours deep black with tan head. Huge aromas of chocolate, coffee & roasted malts. Taste is very well balanced with chocolate, coffee & plenty of roastiness. Nice fuller bodied mouth feel. Very good stout

sheatripper (863) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - APR 5, 2008
Nitro at Brazen Head. Deep, bold and robust dark chocolate and dark coffee aromas and flavors. Richly structured with a dark chocolate and earthy coffee tandem, tempered with a nice underlying roasty bitterness. Nice, full and hearty stout goodness. Going well with my smoked gouda.

Cask at Manhattan Cask Festival. Black pour with some brown bubbles. Aroma is light roast, and some chocolaty sweetness. Flavor is the same, sweet from caramel malt and hints of chocolate, and some bitterness from the roasted malt. Alright palate.

JoeMcPhee (8314) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 14, 2007
Tap at Barcade. Pitch black with a thick sticky creamy dark brown head. Very sweet milk chocolate aroma, a bit of nice leathery aroma, dark cocoa and a soft chewy black licorice note. Very rich flavour of dark chocolate and deep rich malts. A velvety wheaty texture wiht a nice chewiness. Herbal and earthy bitterness with a bit of espresso on the back. Molasses and dark malt sweetness throughout. Soft lingering roastiness. I’m usually impressed by Chelsea’s stouts, and this is no exception.
