msante79 (2224) - Mount Prospect, Illinois, USA - AUG 10, 2008
On tap in Granite City in Orland Park. Pours dark brown with thin tan head. Aroma is of roasted malts, chocolate and coffee. Flavor is light with notes of chocolate and roasted malt with some biterness of coffee. A watered down version of guiness.

Cavie (4196) - Arlington, Texas, USA - MAY 31, 2010
Tap at the pub. Pours a dark black with tan head. Aroma is chocolaty, roasted malts. Nitro flavoring. Bitter upfront. Some sweetened malts. Too much like Guinness.

BVery (9222) - Plymouth, Minnesota, USA - SEP 29, 2011
UPDATED: DEC 29, 2013 Tap. Nice dark brown/black pour with a nice foamy cream head. Really nice chocolate and coffee aroma. Palate is impossibly thin - kills this beer. Taste is watery with similar elements as aroma.

chucklemation (1209) - Royal Oak, Michigan, USA - JUL 11, 2014
Pours a dark black with a tan foam head. Has a roasty and chocolate aroma. Flavor is sweet chocolate, roasted malts, and even a little nutty taste. Towards the bottom of the pint glass there was a dirt/grass flavor that was unfortunate. Has a watery body feel. Otherwise not too bad.

freekyp (1846) - Thomasville, North Carolina, USA - DEC 13, 2015
A bit on the thin side with a roasty nose with light chocolate notes. A bit of tartness and smokiness in the finish is welcome. Pours deep brown with a good sticky creamy head.

whiskeyfairy (27) - Brooklyn Park, Minnesota, USA - FEB 4, 2005
UPDATED: FEB 5, 2005 Maple Grove, MN: nice dark color with medium creamy head. Faint smell of coffee and chocolate. Seemed a bit thin and flat. Coffee and a hint of chocolate flavor lingered for a while but there just didn’t seem to be much to it.

heemer77 (5242) - Urbandale, Iowa, USA - APR 30, 2005
Sampled at the Cedar Rapids branch. Thick slightly tan head with a black body. The nose os milk chocolate with coffee and amaretto. The taste is slightly bitter with milk chocolate and dried apples. Too much hops for the style. Unbalanced with a thin body.

A disappointing stout. Good color but no body to go along with the notes of chocolate malt and hops.
