Pitch black pour with a khaki head. Nose is roasted malts, chocolate, lacto, cocoa, bitter, and fudge. Very smooth and creamy on the palate, heavy roasted malts, creamy fudge, and a great finish.

Tap ... CO2 pump .... Dark and chocolate with a very nice tar colored head. Retention would be better with nitrogen, but this is what's available at the moment.
There's a malty, coffee aroma followed by a rich chocolate, coffee and malt flavor. The velvet body hangs on the tongue with a linger of smoke. Finishes with an extremely subtle bite in the back of the throat. Nice balance for the style.
I would pair this with a strong aged cheese ... Very nice.

[ Nitro Tap ][ 10oz ][ Draught House Austin TX ][ $5 ][ Goblit ][ 9.3.14 ]
>> Inky pour with mega chocolate milk nitro creme topping. Nose is smokey with cocoa powder, big licorice. Taste begins with a hefty wallop of vanilla extract, smokey dark chocolate, spicy chocolate. Palate is medium bodied and decently rich, but feels papery in the finish.

Trade with roxtersoxter - thanks! Black, thin dense head. Smells like coffee, chocolate, and vanilla. Thick, marshmallowy palate. Taste like a s’more, actually - chocolate, coffee, and vanilla, plus a little oak. Nice...

Aromas of roasted malt, chocolate and peppers. Pours a dark brown with a non-lasting tan head and nice lacing. Roasty flavors, chocolate, peppers and hints of molasses. Full body and moderate carbonation. Overall, very tasty. Nice juxtaposition of chocolate and peppers - favorable but not over the top on peppers or chocolate.

Bottle. Thanks to mike12da. Smooth light chocolatey nose, with some alc. fumes. Dark translucent brown, good lacing. Rich chocolate, lactose. Flattens out a bit in mid palate. Cherries, chocolate candy bars, vanilla. Medium body. Tasty. Gets a little thin in flavor a bit too quickly.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12oz bottle via trade with HeffIAm, thanks Jeff. Poured a pitch midnight black solid viscous body under a smaller tight frothy deep beige head. Aroma is big, notes of soy sauce, vanilla extract, melted bakers dark chocolate, tobacco, wet burnt toast and burmt marshmallows. Big body, smooth lighter carbonation, no heat at all for a big 9.1 ABV. Flavor of smooth dark chocoalte, burnt vanilla, dark roasted marshmallows, burnt toast edges, earth, cola and syrup. I liked this at first and then after a bit of time I really liked it. Thanks again Jeff.

4.5 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Appearance: Pours black with a khaki sudsy head.
Aroma: Brownie mix, cocoa, licorice, chocolate chip cookies.
Taste: Medium roasted malt, milk chocolate, faint spicy hops. Alcohol well hidden!
Mouthfeel: Very creamy/fluffy. Moderate carbonation.
Overall: This beer is damn near perfect. While I love and appreciate a sharp roasty Imperial Stout, this was very smooth and milk chocolatey.
