Mild coffee aroma with a hint of cream within. Flavor is a smooth caramel with a roasted coffee finish. Just a little bit too dry, otherwise perfect.

12oz. Brown bottle poured into a glass. Black with small beige head. Aroma is toasty, medium body, low carbonation, and some lacing. Taste is chocolate, toasty, and dry finish.

It pours black with a bit a light that gets through when held up to the light. The head is brown with lacing. It has aromas of chocolate, roasted malts, and maybe a hint of cinnamon or brown sugar. It has smoked flavors with chocolate.

Aroma I dark roast coffee and a bit of tobacco come wafting from the black liquid, the head is a soft khaki color floating atop. The flavor is a perfect example of the taste, but with dark fruits added for good measure...perhaps some overripe blackberries. The taste is lightly bitter, an umami with an edge. A good finish, short and not invasive at all. I’d definitely drink this again if someone were to offer it up!

Poured from the bottle at home. Pours a dark brown. Aroma is that of milk chocolate, coffee, Taste is great, milk chocolate, mocha, nice malts, faint dark fruit notes. Very smooth and creamy. Great Stout!

jeffman52 (6) - Georgia, USA - MAY 8, 2015 does not count
A decent Stout. Pours nice and black. Aroma was coffee and malts. Head was practically non existent. Flavor matched the smell, coffee and chocolate with almost no hops coming through at all. Enjoyable and I would buy this again.

kingaugusta (22) - Georgia, USA - APR 28, 2015
Pours black with a slight brown head. Nose is coffee and cream with a nice burst of roasted barley and a touch of sweetness. Flavor, while not offering anything unusual for a sweeter stout, is rich and well-balanced and is surprisingly big for the relatively low gravity. Finished smooth and full of coffee. Above-average stout.

DrunkSanta410 (619) - Houston, Texas, USA - APR 26, 2015
Bottle at home, thanks to Brad! Pours black, little head. Aroma is thick milk chocolate and espresso. Taste is chocolate, light berries, faint coffee. Lots of flavor in a low abv beer. Thin body, high carbonation. Good beer!

Bottle. Pours a black color with off white head. Burnt, roasty, malty aromas. Roasty, charred, slight chalk, malty, slight coffee flavors. I was expecting a little more coffee in this beer. Overall, solid, full bodied dark beer. Nothing specifically stands out, but its an enjoyable stout.
