Tap @ Rattle N Hum: Dark brown with a great aroma of coffee and rich flavors of malt and some chocolate. Slick finish which is unusual for the style. Quite enjoyable.

On tap at Oblivion Taproom in Orlando. Pours black with a tan head and aroma of coffee and roasted malt. Taste is burnt and toasty, of coffee, roasted malt, and light chocolate with a dry, smooth finig. Very drinkable, tasty stout.

Growler; thanks Ibrew3or3!! Pours dense black with thin light tan head when swirled; yummy, almost lager sweetness on the nose reminding me of a schwarzbier at first; ashy chocolate with light dried fruits, vanilla cookies and nice dry finish; soft chocolate, smooth and easy drinking; pretty nice stuff overall

Ancient rating from Hunahpu’s Day 2012, I recently found my tasting notes. Figured why waste good ticks…On nitro, creamy, chocolate, vanilla, earthy. some roasty and coffee.

Nitro @ CCB provided by one of the brewers. Near black pour with lots of creamy head. Smells great - roasted malt and coffee. Wonderfully dry and easy drinking. Roast is the star of the show with some chocolate notes.

A: Pours dark black with a tall tan head. Excellent retention and lace. S: Lots of roasted malt, chocolate, dark coffee, and smoke. T: Deep roasted flavor. Lots of roasted malt with a hint of char. Dark dark coffee, mild chocolate malt, and caramel. Mildly earthy with a hint of molasses. M: Medium in body, smooth, lightly dry finish. D: Excellent. Damn fine stout, homerun when compared to other stouts of the same style.

opaque black, lasting dense tan head, smooth medium body, medium-high co2.

aroma and flavor are dry, charcoal, roast, and slightly ashy. just enough bittering hops to keep it in balance, without giving any notable hop character. it has a wonderful smooth texture, giving it the feel of porter or even some RIS.

Had this on tap in Cigar City’s newly constructed bar area. Tried on recommendation from some locals that were sitting next to me. Poured into a pint glass. Pours a nice dark brown with a slight tan, tight head. Smells of coffe and dark roasted malts. The taste is great! It’s tough to describe but "tight" come to mind, probably the dryness of it. Also get notes of coffee with a slight smooth hop flavor. Mouthfeel is light to medium. Chalkboard said this was 5.2% abv which was perfect. Love this beer.

Drought. Dark brown color with tan creamy head, roasted malt aroma, low carbonation, dark roasted malt taste overpowering anything underneath,m long finish. Too burnt for my taste.
