Beer as it should be. Pitch black with a thick, creamy tan head. Aroma of coffee, semi-sweet chocolate, caramel, anise, molasses. Rich and robust in the mouth, full bodied. The flavor reiterated the aroma in a nice blend of sweetness and bitterness. Seems stronger than the 7.4% ABV noted. Great stout.

Black, dark brown around the edges. Rich, lightly sweet mocha. Finishes off with a plum fruitiness. I really liked this one. I was surprised by it, actually.

Beershine (5218) - The Sunshine State, Florida, USA - NOV 18, 2007
Looks great, pours with a good-sized dark head and leaves lacing. Roasty nose and taste and a solid dandelion root bitterness. Qualities similar to some imperial stouts. Alcohol is detectable and imparts an occasional sweetness. Good palate.

BillKismet (3515) - Seattle, Washington, USA - NOV 17, 2007
Dark, with rich chocolate cream head. I had forgotten how stalwart this stout was. Deep, dark noted, slightly bitter chocolate aroma and flavor, with some alcohol notes contributing complexity. Strong roasted and chocolate component throughout the experience. Excellent beer for a rainy day or to enjoy with chocolate.

ross (2128) - weddington, North Carolina, USA - NOV 1, 2007
Bottle from the A2M ranger himself: Sean. Pours out a dark black color with a tan head that comes from the bottom. The nose is full of roasted coffee and almost a sweet smelling sugar with it. Kind of like a milk stout, but not repulsive like they are. Taste is smooth and rich, very chocolately but not overly sweet. No alcohol detected, and dangerously easy to drink. A really good beer, in a typically under appreciated style. Good stuff.

22oz - thanks Yonker65 - Aroma of burnt oats and roasted chocolate malts. Appealing with cocoa, lacto and just a touch of hops. Pours black with a small brown ring head and good lacing. Flavor is a mild match to the aroma. Palate is sticky and ashy. A tasty stout.

Bottle. Poured thick and dark. Initial aroma of roasted malt and chocolate. The roasted malt, chocolate, and coffee really stand out in the taste. Smooth.
