mcberko (9754) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 30, 2010
22 oz. bottle, pours black with a small head. Aroma of espresso, licorice, roasted malt and grass. Flavour is much the same, with a burnt finish - there is something off about it. Not my thing.

on tap at HUB in Portland. deeply bitter notes lend it more of a coffee stout than any other

mgermani (1002) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 8, 2010
Pours a pitch black with an enormous frothy pale brown head with great retention. Roasty but oddly fresh head - like spinach or other dark greens and a curious spiciness. Milky chocolate and light citrus upfront, espresso very present. Toasty oats, and I do think I can taste quinoa in there, just a light nuttiness. Creamy moderately thick body with appropriate carbonation. This is a real treat - complex and unique but very quaffable. like an oatmeal cookie.

marcus (7682) - Sacramento, California, USA - MAY 11, 2010
On tap at the brewpub. Pours black with a decent beige head and a chocolate aroma. The flavor is heavy duty chocolate with a coffee chaser and a dry finish.

Courtesy of sebletitje. Pours very dark brown with tan head. The aroma is a rich mix of coffee, chocolate, some roasted malts, spices and black licorice. The taste begins pretty darn roasty and building up toward burnt malts, dark roasted coffee and then chocolate. Nice stuff with loads of pleasing flavors.

Pint at the brewpub. Looks like a dark beer indeed. Pretty close to black body with a tall fluffy head. Aroma is powerul and dense. Lots of chocolate, nuts, espresso, toffee. Very roasty, smoky, ashy flavor with a semisweet body. Plenty of chocolate flavor too. I like it.
