13 oz draught at Pint Room, Dublin. Black; foamy tan head that dissipates into a light covering. Good lacing. Aroma roast, coffee, chocolate. Medium-full body, predominantly roasty with coffee. Very good, yet very forgettable; I had multiple Dragonís Milkís after this and they blew this beer away.

Creamy. Great stout forward chocolate flavor with some citrus hops. Definitely stays true to stout flavors without crossing too close to the black ipa territory.

Damico (2350) - Royersford, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 29, 2014
Pours thick dark black with a darker beige caramel colored head. The aroma brings the citrus zest with a delicious roasted malt and cacao. Flavor brings roasted malt base, a bit nutty, with light but pleasant bitter hops.

cheap (3801) - Beaver County, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 27, 2013
On tap at the mad mex. Beautiful pour! Black with a choco moose head that first goes rocky then fades to a thin scum. Smell is pretty good too. Wew, I was expecting a stout but what I got was impy stout down the taste buds. Not sure if this is a plain stout, sure if quite powerful, not hiding alky well. Yes, pretty stron. Nice lacing. Very little co2 inthere. Leaves a back of throat medicinal feel just liek a typical impy stout.

On tap at The Pint Room in Dublin. Aroma is toasty malt and coffee. Tastes are dark fruit, dry, roasty, citrus. Little tinny. Pretty good.

jmikolich (1394) - North Ridgeville, Ohio, USA - NOV 4, 2013
Tap at FH 3 November 2013, a well hopped stout, good body creamy head, smooth drinking, finishing with medium roast and hint of bitterness lingers, I could do without the bitterness and finish with just roast, but its a tasty beverage none the less.

JStax (2601) - Devola/Marietta, Ohio, USA - OCT 29, 2013
Draft pour at fat heads. Pours a darker brown with a khaki head of foam. Decent retention and lacing. The aroma has a Holly, fruity bitterness creeping in around a deep roasty note that lingers throughout the finish and really sticks with you. This is one hoppy stout, but its quite tasty, still. Good stuff.

JaBier (4528) - Capital City, Ohio, USA - OCT 13, 2013
Pint at Fat Headís Cleveland on 10/11/13. Pitch black pour with a thick tan head. Aroma of roasted malt, a bit of dark fruit and zesty hops. Malty and chocolatey flavor with a dry, roasty and hoppy finish.

Sample at Daily Growler. Pours black with a medium foamy tan head that dissipates slowly to a film. Top ring of lacing on the glass with small patches underneath. Aroma of roasted malt, coffee and chocolate. Medium-bodied with a roasty character of coffee and malt, with some espresso behind it. The finish is malty up front with a dark chocolate aftertaste. Above average overall.
