Started with the sampler of this. Came pitch black with a deep tan head. A sweet chocolate mocha aroma. Last sip finished as good smooth and creamy as the first. So, I had to have a pint of this. One problem I had with this beer is that I can’t get it in Georgia.

Cask at the brewery. Black with a little light at the glass edge. Roasted oatmeal and milk, cream aroma. Slghtly musty, moderately thin body with a nice coffee-creamer character and tones of almonds and roasted nuts. Overall a little too thin, but the flavor profile is very nice.

Nitro, thick tan head, deep garnet ruby color. Tons of sweet chocolate and...that's about it. Huge chocolate, some dark molasses & maybe maple syrup. Flavor is creamy like a rich mocha sundae. Lots of chocolate malts & black patent.

This is going to be the beer that I order everytime I go to this brewery. Another big beer as far as flavor but I wish it has a little more alcohol. The flavor is rich and complex and full bodied. Subtle oatmeal flavors with alot of malt character and a rich cocoa creaminess

On nitro tap at GVB in McMinnville, OR--Abysmal black body with a great creamy tan head. Sweet, nutty, roasted chocolate, toffee, boozy nose. Creamy, bright, crisp taste. Robust and very enjoyable.

Draft. A pitch black beer with a brown head. The aroma is sweet malty with strong notes of chocolate as well as notes of roasted malt. The flavor is sweet malty with notes of roasted malt and chocolate, leading to a dry roasted finish, where the roasted malt also lends it a slight acidity.

BrewDad (4922) - Olympia, Washington, USA - JUN 26, 2006
[Tap – Brewery] Deep dark brown color no to little head. This was a Chocolaty, malty, roasty toasty brew. Loved the flavors and the used of malts. Had a good dry finish and a flavor to die for. Nitrogen induced so that really helps. This brewery knows dark beers the light stuff is for the non brewing crowed.

On tap at the brewery. This was a really nice smooth stout on nitro, very nice chocolate, smooth and rich, with a light burnt sugar taste in the finish. Very nice weight on the palate and the nitro made this very easy to drink.

On tap at the brewpub. Pours a black body with a finger-width, dense and very creamy, chocolate milk colored head that dissipates slowly and leaves a nice lacing throughout. Aroma is sweet and rich, milky and dark chocolates with a bit of a malted milk ball essence. A moderate amount of creamy roasts, a bit of a lactose sweetness, and touches of licorice. Flavor is similar. Creamy roasts and a nice mix of dark and milky chocolates that seem a bit accentuated by some lactose additions. A light ashy note, touches of licorice, smooth oats, and a light earthy bitterness as this finishes creamy and dry before leaving lengthy a aftertaste. Medium, smooth body and a soft, creamy, light carbonation. Overall, a pretty solid sweet stout. Rich, creamy, and roasty with a very soft, pleasant body. Nice beer.

On tap in Beaverton. Pours a murky brown color with a medium tan head. A big fruity and roasted malt nose. Dark fruits, plum, some sweet white chocolate and cocoa. Roasted throughout. Good.
