smroush (126) - Michigan, USA - MAR 16, 2015
Strong coffee aromas, a touch of nutty flavor. A bit of a creamy texture; a reasonably long finish with coffee and a bit of nut flavor. What i like about this beer: coffee and nut flavors. What I don’t like: just a touch thin and not as complex as the best stouts.

DocJitsu (1267) - Pensacola, Florida, USA - MAR 13, 2015
Very dark brown, opaque pour with a giant, well-retaining, foamy Brown-10 head. Rich, smoky, griddle grease, and bacon aromas. Moderately thick with a surprising amount of carbonation. A strong metallic flavor tends to overpower The flavors that were detected in the aroma. There is a date/prune note in the flavor that was not earlier detected in the aroma.

mgajdaczewa (906) - Katowice, POLAND - MAR 11, 2015
W aromacie bardzo pełne, czekoladowy krem, lekka kawa, bardzo przyjemny. W smaku nieco gorzej, przez pierwsze sekundy czuć fajną, czekoladową kremową pełnie, a potem uderza popiół, paloność, przez co finisz jest pusty, szorstki i nieprzyjemny. Trochę szkoda.
