12 ounce bottle pours a dark brown to black color with a tan head that doesn't last long. Caramel vanilla and chocolate aroma with some licorice smell as well. Medium body, nice chocolate coffee flavor very nice balance of the hops. Solid example of a stout. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Poured from bottle. Toasted malt and licorice aroma. Stout black with tan head. Coffee and yeast flavors with cocoa, vanilla, nut and malt. Earthy hop notes. A bit of an oily feel. Nice stuff.

Bottle into pint glass, deep dark brown with dark tan head. Aroma of roasted malt, smoke, light coffee and chocolate milk. Taste adds notes of bread, char, bitter dark chocolate, slight nuttiness and earthy hop bitterness. Medium body, average carbonation, creamy, rich with sweet roasty finish. Nice tasty sessionable stout.

Had this on a camping trip so my review may be off a little since all beer tastes better while camping. Good stout. Smooth finish but overall a little weak. Great chocolate taste without being overpowering. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle from the last local swap - thanks! Pours deep ruby black with a small brown creamy head and nice lacing on the glass. Aroma is light, with notes of ashtray, roast, and cocoa powder. Flavor is impressive, creamy, lactose, roasty, tobacco, coffee, chocolate. Light plus sweet and light bitter. Medium body, creamy mouthfeel.

UPDATED: NOV 17, 2013 This one pours deep dark brown and clear. Head is semi brown and forms a thin ring about the edges. Nose is chocolate, coffee, and some sweet doughy bread aromas underneath the roast. Flavor is coffee, bread, fruity cherry chocolates, touch of bright coffee and some roast astringency in the finish. Medium full chewy body. Pretty nice brew. Iím editing this because I had it at home from a bottle and let it warm up in the glass. When this procedure was performed, this beer really came out and got fantastic. Damn I like it and damn I wish bars didnít serve such cold beer.

Black pour. Big tan head. Plenty of lacing. Typical RIS aroma of malt, sugar, dark dried fruits, and chocolate. Taste is a nice chocolate and roasted grains. Very good for a small RIS. Although it doesnít pretend to be.

Tap @ Hanna Flannaganís shared with HopTsing. Dark brown with thin tan head. Smells like milk chocolate and light roast coffee. Light roasty flavor. A tad harsh on the tongue. Light roasty finish.
