AGknights44 (20) - - JUL 25, 2013
flavor: strong complex combination of roasted barley, chocolate malt, coffee, with dark fruit in background; coffee being most prevalent. aroma: very similar to flavor but stronger fruitiness. very dark and opaque. mediumlight brown lasting head. medium carbonation... got better as beer warmed and less carbonated.

3fourths (8546) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - APR 9, 2015
Draft. Opaque brown with a short off-white head. With only a quiet roasted malt note that seems "natural", the nose is dominated by adjuncts, undoubtedly milk sugar, chocolate and coffee, giving the impression of Oreo cookies / Cookies & Cream ice cream. Abusively sweet in the mouth, extremely cloying to the point that it’s difficult to take more than small sips. Texture is creamy and silty, which could be due to yeast but may also be the lactose. Overall it doesn’t smell like stout, it’s one of the sweetest beers I’ve ever tasted, and the adjuncts completely obliterate any underlying malt character, so I don’t get the point.

chinchill (2893) - South Carolina, USA - FEB 22, 2015
Lg. shared bottle at RBWG-2015. Essentially black body with a thin head that reduces to a very durable ring. Aroma is off, as i confirmed with another taster. The flavor holds up better, but there are some off notes in addition to alcohol esters and dark roasted grains. A bit too sweet as well.

jbruner (2914) - Athens, Georgia, USA - FEB 6, 2015
Pours a thick black from the bottle with bubbly brown head that leaves good lace. Aroma of sweet malty sugar, maple and lactose, hint of roast and soy. Taste is all that plus chocolate and vanilla, back end of coffee, wow. So much going on, a bit too much carbonation, but it quiets the burn. Damn, thick and creamy, this is amazing.

Damico (2857) - Royersford, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 22, 2015
Super slow gush, maybe a year old. Pours super dark unclear with a huge dark cocoa beige head. Aroma brings clean and sharp sweet roasted malts. Flavor brings sweet roasted coffee (not sugary) on a creamy body with toasted bread for sure on the backend. It is very smooth.
