TheJester (2175) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 16, 2015
650 mL bottle. 2010 vintage. May have left it a bit too long. Black with not much head. Sweet, malt aroma has a little cocoa powder, maraschino cherries and soy sauce. Flavour is still nig, body is still creamy, but the carbonation has flattened out a bit. Have to try one fresher.

hman43 (607) - Pinehurst, North Carolina, USA - JUN 26, 2015
Pours black. There is little head and the first pour, but it develops after the pour with lacing. Aromas of chocolate, coffee, and cocoa. It has a smooth, rich texture with flavors of coffee, chocolate, cocoa, and oats. The lively carbonation produces a tingling sensation with a bitter finish.

zimbo (754) - SCOTLAND - JUN 25, 2015
UPDATED: JUN 26, 2015 Deep strong and complex but still with real suppleness andinerality. Dense chocolate cake, smooth coffee and dark chocolate syrup with leather, some moist earth and a hint of oatmealy silkiness. Delicious and superbly built.

gripweed57 (983) - Hamilton Square, New Jersey, USA - JUN 20, 2015
Opaque black color with no noticeable head to speak of. Aroma is sweet cocoa, reminiscent of baked brownies with cinnamon, raisins and Cuban coffee. Wonderful chocolate and coffee dark malt flavor upfront. Obvious warming alcohol feel. Complex yet smooth. Like drinking cold Mexican Hot Chocolate with a big boozy jolt. The smoothness comes from the oats. The complexity comes from the magic of the ingredients and craft of the Hoppin’ Frog Brewers. Well done.
