I am just getting over a cold so I am not getting much in my nose - some roasted malt, molasses, and coffee - dark brown/almost black pour - rich flavors of roasted malt with some raisin and brown sugar.

CaptainCougar (7129) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - FEB 7, 2013
Release #23, 22oz bottle: Pours a barely transparent dark mahogany with a pillowy froth of khaki head. Has a lightly sweet dark malty nose with some milk chocolate and mild roast. Starts with pretty good fullness and lightly toasted caramel malty sweetness with a touch of molasses and chocolate with some bittering hops showing up near the finish. Pretty true to style and certainly drinkable.

From notes - Dark, deep brown pour with one finger head. Smells of roasted malts, light smoke, rich, sweet malt and light caramel notes. Flavor is light smoke, roasty, light bitter chocolate, and dark coffee. Medium body, but pretty smooth.

SDalkoholic (2141) - Linda Vista, California, USA - JAN 12, 2013
Bottle from South Bay Liquor: Poured A dark brown liquid topped with thick lather of shaving cream like foam. Aroma is rich with roasted down dark malts that stimulates my nose and intrigues my interest as to how it tastes. The drink is thick and creamy like half and half or buttermilk and almost taste somewhat lactic or milky too while a notice of dark malts hide in the distant background. There is little sweetness as well which makes for a lacking sweet stout and a disappointment in the end.

Nuffield (3666) - Roseville, Minnesota, USA - DEC 31, 2012
Huh, interesting--a sweet/oatmeal stout. I didn’t sense that when I drank it. Rather that getting that, I sensed much more of the burnt, roasted, and tobacco (cigarette ashes) from it, leading to a somewhat bitter finish and a feeling that this wasn’t especially satisfying as a mocha/chocolate experience. Fine, but needs more balance. Bottle.

Cybercat (3229) - Georgia, USA - DEC 26, 2012
Rich, smoky aroma has a strong chocolate note and tones of coffee and molasses. It pours a deep, warm sable with a respectable tan head. Mouth-filling flavor has firm notes of roast malt, coffee, sweet chocolate and molasses with licorice and nutty hints. Smooth texture has good firmness and fizz, and leaves an earthy finish with traces of mocha. Look for this one!

sfontain (795) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - DEC 22, 2012
22 oz bottle, Whole Foods Columbus. Dark garnet-brown; lovely tan, frothy head dissipates into an atom-thin covering but rejuvenated with swirling. The primary note in the aroma is coffee; there is some roast but it’s light and complementary; light toffee. Flavor is a little deeper, with notable chocolate and coffee; lightly tart up front; bitterness in the finish is sharp but very light and I suppose appropriate for a sub-6% stout. Palate is low on the carbonation but creamy without feeling "thick"--interesting; light sticky. This beer feels a little "small" following all the monstrous imperial stouts and tripels and multiple IPA’s available in in the winter in the last few years. That said, for what it’s trying to be, this is very good.

magsinva (876) - Virginia, USA - DEC 18, 2012
Tap from brixx in Raleigh- forgot to review last night - aroma is more coffee then chocolate. Taste is sweet. Palate was thin for a sweet stout. Good, but average.

DiarmaidBHK (3387) - Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 17, 2012
Draft at Brixx Chapel Hill. Pours coca cola brown with an thin khaki head which leaves a lot of foam. Toffee notes on the nose. A bit of slickness on the tongue plus toffee as well. Finishes clean. Solid but not spectacular.

DrinkEmUpJones (1062) - Georgia, USA - NOV 26, 2012
Pours dark brown with thin white lacing. Lots of maltese on the nose. Kind of reminds me of a whopper (the candy, not the burger). Malty palate is rich and creamy like chocolate ice cream. At the same time this beer is not overly sweet. A good carbonation presence gives the beer a nice balance. Simply put...awesome.
