wchesser (1668) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JAN 11, 2016
Translucent dark brown. Nose is very light, some prune, burnt caramel. Sweet with dark roast coffee, some chocolate, and caramel. Like the taste but nose is so dead, can’t rate higher.

AWISLguy (2078) - Wisconsin, USA - DEC 31, 2015
12oz bottle from Beer Bazaar in Hainesville. Brown pour with a beige head. Aroma has cocoa, crackers, light peat and oatmeal. Taste follows, with caramel, not a great blend; the oatmeal clashes with the peat a bit instead of smoothing. Medium to full bodied some alcohol. Finishes sweeter than bitter and tangy. Shrug? Like the brewery, but they can do better than this. 13.2

Beerman6686 (5810) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 24, 2015
This poured a dark brown with a beige head. Aroma was of dark fruits, dark chocolate, and booze. Flavor similar, lightly sweet, mildly hot, but pretty well mannered overall and a decent beer.

trapped (1778) - New York, TURKEY - SEP 19, 2015
Bottle. Inky black with largish spongy beige head, mocha aroma with a hint of cardamom, low carbonation, slightly sweet mocha taste, long finish with alcohol aftertaste. The alcohol taste has not been fully repressed.

12 ounce bottle. Thin to medium body with some roast and chocolate. Nose starts off nice and fades. Decent.

thedm (5281) - Fort Wayne, USA - JUL 23, 2015
This draft brew from a restaurant poured a head of foamy light brown colored bubbles that were mostly diminishing and left behind a opaque black brown colored body and a fair lacing. The mild aroma was malty. The semi-thick mouth feel was strongly tingly at the start and mediumly tingly at the finish with a lingering dark malt aftertaste. The nice flavor contained notes of roasted malt mild licorice burnt malt brown malt dark malt and hops. Delicious and one I would certainly like to have again.

Mr_Abner (276) - Michigan, USA - MAY 18, 2015
Bottle. Pours black with a beige head. Aromas of chocolate, roasted malts, vanilla, slight alcohol. Taste is similar: chocolate, vanilla, dark roasted cold brewed coffee, roasted malts. A medium sweetness, though I really like the balance between that and the bitterness. Medium+ bodied, a touch creamy, flavors linger in the finish. This really is a delicious beer.

wlajwl (5055) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - MAY 16, 2015
Aroma is chocolate, dark malts and lactic sweetness. The flavor is chocolate, dark fruit/mildly vinous, dark malts and a mix of acidity/slight heat/warming heat in the finish.

Christpuncher (2396) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - APR 16, 2015
This one is sweet and boozy to start with a strong bite at the finish. Notes of coffee, chocolate, and licorice. Pours black with a thin tan head from a bottle. Well done Russian imperial stout ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
