ekoerper (587) - Iowa, USA - SEP 17, 2012
Aroma: toasty malts, a good dose of roast malts and coffee, really a mix of dry stout and mild in the nose. Pours black, almost opaque, but some light can get through around the edges and cast light reddish hues, off-white head dissipates somewhat quickly, spotty lacing. Flavor: nice and bready/toasty, mellow roast character, light bitterness, dry finish. Medium body, low-medium carbonation. Very easy drinking and enjoyable brew, nice!

Pours black with a thick khaki head. Malt, caramel, toffee, toast, biscuit and oxidation aroma. Toffee, caramel, chocolate, coffee, biscuit, toast, malt and hop flavors. Medium body and ridiculously high carbonation. Malt and toffee finish.

Nitro tap. Pours deep ruby black, medium tan creamy head, great lacing. Aruba is light malty, a bit roasty, biscuit . Flavor is medium sweet, little bitterness, roasty. Light body, a but watery, but smooth. Highly drinkable at 4%.

tgncc (2740) - Bellmore, New York, USA - FEB 20, 2014
Roasted, toasted malts on the nose. The appearance is deep brown, reddish hue, off white head. The flavor is Raosty, burnt caramel, toasted malt, brown sugar. Sweet, yet, roasty. The finish is roasty, bitter. A bit light in body, watery. Not bad. Decent for the style.

22oz from Whole Foods , I think Whole foods pours brown tan head, aroma of almond and pecans. Light body but good beer and good carbonation.

On tap at the brewery on Nitro and CO2. Nitro had a great smooth roasty mouthfeel, the CO2 had a more intense sharp roast bite on the finish. nice beers

arminjewell (5992) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - NOV 8, 2013
Pour on tap at the brewery, brownish pour with off white head, aroma brought notes of roast, nuts, dark fruits, coffee and dark cocoa as well, not bad. Taste is a mix of dark chocolate, roast, coffee beans into a bit of caramel, toffee, hints of nutty notes, earth, finishing spicy and roasted. Pretty good.

On draft at far bar, this is was actually surprisingly roasty, sampled off nitro, as I assume dark milds should be. Just roasty water, the rest wasnt there. Luckily it wasnt 4% ABV.
