mansquito (3578) - Nueva York, New York, USA - NOV 29, 2014
Winter Beer Fest, Philly: Pours black with a tan head. Aroma is chocolate, a bit of coffee, and a healthy bit of roasted malts. Taste is around the same areas. Somewhat bitter. Dark chocolate. Pretty smooth. Easy to drink. All good, except for the terrible label. Oh dear.

jgb9348 (4857) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - NOV 18, 2014
Deep dark brown coloured body with only the smallest amount of brown tints getting through when held upto a light. All, wiht a very thin, half a centimetre tall tan head. Aroma of oatmeal, alcohol, grain, roasted malt, molasses, coffee and some earth - strong and pungent. Medium-bodied; Rich roasted malt flavours coupled with cereal, alcohol, raisins, molasses, caramel, figs and a lot of raisins and prunes at the end. Aftertaste shows some earthiness, mushrooms and a little caramel flavour, but a lot of roasted malt and prune notes to finish this off. Overall, a deep and long-lasting beer with a good, but not great profile. The pour made it appear that this would be better with a slightly better body, but this was simply good, but not outstanding. I sampled this twelve ounce bottle purchased from Total Wine in Alexandria, Virginia on 30-March-2014 for US$1,99 sampled at home in Washington on 18-November-2014.

Braudog (5903) - Traveling the USA, Missouri, USA - SEP 21, 2014
Bottle. Nice visuals to start it off ... deep black, thick tan head, although it cedes quickly. Equally appealing aroma ... and the flavor is rich with smoky roast and a bit of very dark coffee. Good stuff. (#5747, 9/21/2014)

slowrunner77 (6114) - Reno, Nevada, USA - SEP 6, 2014
"One of the chocolateyist not chocolate stouts Iíve ever had. Heavily roasted and herbal aroma and flavor as well. Low bitterness and a little nutty. A little prickly but otherwise a pleasant surprise."

Aroma of burnt coffee and dark roasted pecans. Very dark color with tan light brown head. Super toasty and notes of black Patton. Creamy and smooth with a long lasting finish. Great for the price. Can be enjoyed with a good bowl on chili.

superspak (2840) - Michigan, USA - AUG 31, 2014
12 ounce bottle into pint glass, bottled in 2/2014. Pours nearly pitch black color with a 1 finger dense tan head with good retention, that reduces to a thin cap that lingers. Light spotty soapy lacing clings down the glass. Aromas of dark chocolate, cocoa, coffee, roasted malt, molasses, dark bread, toasted oats, light char, and roasted earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance and complexity of dark/roasted malt and toasted oat notes; with solid strength. Taste of dark chocolate, cocoa, coffee, roasted malt, dark bread, toasted oats, light char, and roasted earthiness. Good amount of roasted bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of dark chocolate, cocoa, coffee, roast, dark bread, toasted oats, light char, and roasted earthiness on the finish for a while. Very nice complexity and robustness of dark/roasted malt and toasted oat flavors; with a nice roasted bitterness/sweetness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with smooth, creamy, and slightly chalky mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is well hidden with no warming present after the finish. Overall this is a very good oatmeal stout. All around good complexity and balance of dark/roasted malt and toasted oat flavors; and very smooth to drink. A nicely enjoyable offering.

Elwood (3336) - Leesburg, Virginia, USA - JUL 9, 2014
Pours almost black. Odd vegetal notes with a little flint and roasted malt flavor wise. Smooth on the palate with a medium body. Not the best combination of flavors.
