Roasted nuts, coffee, molasses and chocolate come through on the aroma. Darkened mahogany in color with a thin foam top. Flavor is roasted coffee, nuts, chocolate and some oats. Carbonation is decent and body is light. Overall, pretty decent brew with a primarily coffee flavor. A little thin and a little watery. Nevertheless, itís got some decent drinkability. B- rating.

mansquito (3444) - Nueva York, New York, USA - JUN 15, 2012
Total Wine, Fairfax 650ml ($5ish): Pours a dark brown with a very light brown head. Aroma is roasted malt, along with a bit of burntness, and some chocolate. Taste is very minimally sweet. Roasted malts are what is going on for the most part with a burnt finish. This is hardly a sweet stout. I do not know who claimed that. There is also a cheap tin coffee taste up in this. This is good, but in no way outstanding.

Wow. Just, wow. This has coffee and chocolate flavors without being harsh. Itís dark and thick without being heavy. Easy to drink. Amazing.

Poured from a bottle at the brewery. The roasted malts are firm, some caramel malts, notes of coffee. A nice stout, easy drinking stout.

Sample at the House Wine EPIC beer tasting on 04/18/2012: This beer is black with a medium tan head that recedes steadily to an outer ring. Partial rings of lacing on the glass. Roasty aroma of malt and coffee. Medium body with a toasty malt character and notes of mild coffee, chocolate and a touch of hops. The finish is roasty with a sweet malty aftertaste. Decent overall.
