black, foamy beige head. roasty malt aroma with some coffee and caramel. very little carbo, extremely smooth mouthfeel. flavour starts out a little chocolatey and malty, but gets a bit thin. not bad.

csbosox (1224) - Prairie Village, Kansas, USA - JAN 17, 2007
On tap at LCB in Oct ’05. 5oz sample. Looks black, at the bar, with a frothy, khaki head. The head sticks around and around like a nitro pour, but I am not sure it was. Coffee, bittersweet chocolate, and roasted malt aroma. The external cig smoke is a bit overwhelming. The taste is sweet, initially with roasty, chocolate, and coffee flavors, in fact, a lot of coffee. There is some bitterness that gives it espresso notes. The finish is moderately bitter. Full body.

Jet black, opaque, with a thick, creamy, nitro, tan coloured head. Coffee / cappaccino and chocolate aroma. Slowly growing coffee and chocolate bitterness, drying out on the finish. Dry and lightish mouthfeel. On tap at the brewpub.

richlikebeer (838) - Easton, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 16, 2005
on tap at the brewpub. pours a completely black body with a thick creamy tan head, reminiscent of a nitro beer. aroma is strong with coffee, but also held a bit of sweetness that i had a hard time specifying. the taste was excellent, a very solid blend of roasted coffee, malts and some sweet chocolates at the end. it had a great sweet coffee aftertaste, with almost no bitterness at all. my only complaint is that the body was a little light and watery. i am seeing that as a pattern in my ratings for this brewpub, maybe that is just their style, but i like a little more body, especially in a beer like this. still in all, an excellent beer.

Nitro pour - Opaque black with creamy beige head. Roasty malt aroma, burnt malt also. Creosote. Roasted/burnt malt flavors balanced with some hop presence. Mouthfeel a little thin, a little too acidic - Not bad.

Pitch black with a two inches creamy tan head. Nice choclate milk aromas with a touch of roasted grains. Medium body, smooth, creamy, grainy (in a good way) with a long roasty finsih. Super session stout. Well done.
