COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Chocolate malt and roasted barley provide the dark color and fully body of chocolate stout. Toasy accents and a hoppy dryness add to this smooth brew. An old time favorite you’ll remember.

Nephilium (1593) - Ohio, USA - FEB 9, 2013
Mild chocolate aroma. Pours an opaque black, with a light tan head. Roasted flavor, with hints of milk chocolate. Lingering roasted finish, light bodied. Not a bad sessionable stout.

Turboninja (350) - Tampere, FINLAND - JAN 15, 2016
Bottle@home, from Little Italy Wines, Cleveland, USA. Medium boozy aroma with coffee and roasted malts, some licorice and a hint of tar. Pitch black color with small light beige head. Medium, unbalanced rubbery taste with lean coffee, roasted malts and some licorice. Medium taste spectrum and medium aftertaste with watery licorice. Light body with medium carbonation. Overall, watery feeling in every aspect.

Looks good, deep brown color small beige head that fades quickly. Not much aroma, not much taste. Thin, watery, but it’s better than Budweiser!

NikkTwist (2243) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 9, 2015
Draft at Moriartys. Pitch black pour with a thin topping of khaki foam. No lace. Roasted chocolate malts. Dark cocoa. Burnt nuts. Hints of charcoal. A bold first impression but the depth of flavors is ultimately too shallow. Not unpleasant but not grand.

kevinator (1730) - The Colony, Texas, USA - NOV 6, 2015
Noticeable aromas and flavors of chocolate and toasted malt. Slight hop bitterness leaves a dry finish. Not too sweet. Soft brown color with a medium weight. Not bad.

Imaena (2144) - Maputo, MOZAMBIQUE - JUL 23, 2015
Bottle. This was a little too much for my taste. Too sweet, too unbalanced, too far off the path

Block (1917) - Indianapolis, Indiana, USA - JUN 14, 2015
I thought this chocolate stout was awesome. Lots of chocolate throughout. Not much roastedness or side flavors. Really good, pretty strong flavor.

superspak (3980) - Michigan, USA - MAY 26, 2015
12 ounce bottle into pint glass, no bottle dating. Pours crystal clear nearly opaque dark brown color with a 1-2 finger dense khaki head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Light spotty lacing clings down the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of dark chocolate, cocoa, coffee, toast, dark bread, light smoke/char, herbal, and roasted earthiness. Nice aromas with good complexity and balance of dark/roasted/bready malt and light-moderate earthy hop notes; with good strength. Taste of dark chocolate, cocoa, coffee, toast, dark bread, light smoke/char, herbal, and roasted earthiness. Fair amount of herbal/roasted bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of dark chocolate, cocoa, coffee, toast, dark bread, light smoke/char, and roasted earthiness for a good bit. Good complexity and robustness of dark/roasted/bready malts and light-moderate earthy hop flavors; with a good roasted bitterness/sweetness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth, fairly creamy, and lightly bready/chalky mouthfeel that is good. Alcohol is very well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is a good American stout style. All around good complexity, robustness, and balance of dark/roasted/bready malt and light-moderate earthy hop flavors; and very smooth to drink. A nicely enjoyable offering.

HuskerTan (1272) - Kearney, Nebraska, USA - MAY 18, 2015
Bottle. A- Malty, roasty, dry, cocoa. A- Black color, black liquid, light brown head. T- Malty, roasty, bakers chocolate, dry. P- Medium body, thin texture, high carbonation, dry roasty finish. O- Really not that great of a beer. At first it smelled like blood, which I am not sure where that came from. After the head faded away, that odd aroma went out the door and dry roasty cocoa came in. The palate was about the same. Simply a boring stout, really.
