Very smooth, chocolatey, delicious stout. The taste really stays with you. That chocolate malt lingers on the palate well. Not an undesirable lingering taste. Exceptional. The only way you could make this better is to make it a Velvet Merkin.

12 oz bottle. Pours black with tall, creamy, brown head and nice lacing. Aroma is of graham crackers, toasted malt, marshmallow, chocolate and some hops. Body is medium and smooth. Taste is of toasted malt, herbal hops, chocolate, brown sugar and dark fruit. Finish is long and bittersweet. Very good overall.

Motor oil color, slim light beige head. Cocoa powder, roasted pumpernickel aroma. Nice flavor, chocolate, some alcohol, menthol, coffee medium bodied feel. A benchmark sort of stout...good.

mfhennig (222) - McHenry County, Illinois, USA - JAN 7, 2016
Very nice near black color with a beige head that fades away quickly. Nose is bitter roasted coffee and cooked oats.. Flavor has some bitter cocoa and old stale coffee. Nice oily mouthful. This had all the flavor and aroma of a really good Imperial Stout without the ABV. Very well done!

Beautiful head which subsides after a minute. Rich dark color with hint of red rif one looks closely. Smell is typical stout. Nice sweetness and body. Finish is dry and roasty. Chocolate and coffee.

Poured from a bottle. Ink black. Almost no head. Very muted coffee aroma. Slightly bitter coffee taste. Mouthfeel is slightly creamy. OK. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

TheJester (2303) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 22, 2015
355 mL bottle. Looks like a stout. Not much head. Super roasty in the nose. Almost burnt toast. Strong aroma. Espresso. Nice. The flavour is not as big as the aroma. Everything is muted and muddled. Still good, though. Could use a little more bitterness too.
