Darwenus (614) - Virginia, USA - APR 17, 2013
Dark chocolate body with orangish highlights, there’s very little head or lace, just a smooth, dark surface. The aroma has a muted, kind of synthetic quality that I don’t enjoy. There’s a little bit of a chocolate quality to the smell, but it seems artificial. The flavor is a little tangy during the swallow, but it all remains fairly muted. Muted malt, dull, indistinct background character. Meh.

Hmm, a fairly uninteresting stout. It is a little dry but I’m not a fan of the pour. Looks slightly thin w/out a head or lacing. A little chocolate flavor but otherwise pretty bland. Ok at best.

BillWyce (817) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 13, 2013
From notes: Poured opaque black with a 1-finger light tan head. Aroma was roasty, with some coffee notes. Body is medium-to-full with a long, slightly creamy finish. Roasty coffee flavor, with a mild creamy note beneath.

I always thought I'd like oysters until I actually tried one. This beer was the opposite. Good stuff. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

eelbasher (285) - New Jersey, USA - APR 11, 2013
12oz. Pours jet black with an expresso colored head. Looks amazing in the glass! Wafting from the glass are aromas of light smoke, coffee, chocolate, roasted malts galore, and a lactic twang. The flavor is very smooth and full. Roasted malts dominate, followed by smoked meat, herbal notes, and coffee. Wooo! what a nice beer here
