Cybercat (3981) - Georgia, USA - MAY 28, 2015
Pours rich coffee brown with a very thick and rather persistent frothy tan head. Aroma has roast malt, molasses, mocha, and subtle nutty tones. Flavor has broad strokes of roast malt, coffee, semi-sweet chocolate, and molasses with nutty and hay hints. Texture has OK body and some good fizz. Give a hoot!

22 oz. bottle shared by Tmoney99. Pours a dark cola brown color with a small beige head. The aroma and flavor have mild roasted malts, dark chocolate, caramel, just a hint of coffee, mild to moderate roasty bitterness, a solid straight forward stout.

Tmoney99 (11812) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - APR 15, 2015
Bottle. Poured a clear dark brown color with an average frothy brown head that mostly lasted with excellent lacing. Moderate to heavy toasted dark chocolate aroma. Medium to heavy sweet dark malt flavor with a medium to heavy dark sweet of moderate to long duration. Moderate to full body with a smooth texture and flat carbonation. This is a solid beer.

shigadeyo (3246) - Harrison, Ohio, USA - APR 14, 2015
Aroma of semi-sweet chocolate with undertones of licorice, chickory, and heavily caramelized malt. Deep brown color with a minimal beige crown. Dry cocoa, caramelized malt, roasted barley, moderate bitterness with a tinge of mint. Medium body, well-carbomated. Quite good; reminds me of a nice Robust Porter.

nimbleprop (5790) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - MAR 21, 2015
22oz bottle from Connecticut Ave pours a murky black with some thin, tan head. Nose is quite meaty, some BBQ sauce, molasses, licorice, malt, toast, some dark chocolate. Flavor follows right along, molasses, roast, a little mushroom, toast, licorice, burnt caramel, light smoke. Full, meaty finish. A nice, chewy stout.

It pours black, lively carbonation and a dark brown head. There area aromas of roasted malts, chocoalte, and a bit of wood. The roasted malt flavors are dominate which gives it a smokey quality to it. There is a bit of chocolate with a bit of wood as well. It has a moderately bitter finish.

Reviewed from notes. Thanks to Rick for bringing this one back from your NC trip. This was poured into a pint glass. The appearance was a dark brown close to black color with a one finger white foamy head that dissipated within about a minute. Light lacing stuck and then slid. The smell had a graceful blend of roasty to sweet coffee to dark chocolate with a light robust milk chocolate insisting upon my nose. The taste was mainly roasty and robust sweet chocolate and coffee. On the palate, this one sat about a medium on the body with a semi - sessionable quality about it. The carbonation was appropriately styled and was good for me. Overall, Rick please go back and get more of this stellar beer.
