UPDATED: MAY 18, 2013 Good rich aroma and creamy mouthfeel. Nice roasty taste and each swallow ends with a nice hops bitterness for my palate. Overall very good stout to drink with spicy foods.

The beer is opaque, dark brown nearing black. The beige head is thick and massive, coating the glass with a thick sheet of lacing as it slowly recedes. The aroma really inviting dark roast, coffee, chocolate. Ooh. I can already see why this is so highly rated. The flavor brings a heavy dose of roast with a splash of coffee. The finish brings a hop bitterness that melds beautifully with the charred roast character. Long lasting aftertaste. A solid beer. If this were in my market, I would keep it around all year.

Bottle pour at a local Italian restaurant - go figure... This is a very dark pour that balances nicely.

This beer is black with a prominent tan head, and the aroma is subtle with chocolate and roasted malts. The taste is mildly bitter and mildly sweet, and the palate compliments the taste with its full body, creamy texture, soft carbonation, and bitter finish.

Poured two fingers of tan head on a black body.
The aroma is roasted malt, dark chocolate and
The taste is great. Lots of roasted malt and bitter-sweet chocolate. A dry bitterness through; results in a complex drink.
The texture is smooth and crisp with low carbonation and medium body.
Itís just about everything I ever wanted in a stout.

On tap at ITAP in St. Louis. I was really happy when i got this brew. Nitro. The bartender compared it to guiness. Iíll agree but also strongly disagree. The palate was alot of the same qualities yet just a bit more full. Appearance was beautifully black with a gorgeous head. Iíd have to say the most pleasing part of this beer was the finish. HOPS!! YAAYY. Such a wonderful happy ending.

Bottle thnx to Bytemesis, cheers Mike!! Pours a blackened beer with an one-finger of beige head. Aroma is very chocolate forward with tones of kandi sugar and dark caramel. Flavour is an exact copy of the aroma, but it also has a creamy subtleness to it. This is full bodied, even for a low abv beer this is awesome. Not as powered as an imperial stout, but this is a very good one!
