Poured from a bottle at Edmonton Craft Beer Fest ’14. Black pour, thin brown head. Oily appearance. Nose was sweet with chocolate and caramel. Taste of chocolate, caramel, molasses with some roast at the end. Overall an ok stout, but would not need a whole pint of this.

phaleslu (7419) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAY 13, 2014
330 ml bottle from Homer321 - thanks again, LeSean! Pours an opaque coffee brown with an inch of head that starts darker tan and lightens up as it settles and laces the glass. Aroma of fudge, brownies, vanilla, roast, and a little earth. Flavor of cacao nibs, vanilla, fudge, coffee, roast, tobacco, and earth. Light-medium bodied, with a sweet, smooth, lightly roasty mouthfeel and moderate carbonation. Maybe I’m missing something. This is pretty good. Drinks really nice.

rollinsr (452) - Atlanta, GEORGIA - MAY 3, 2014
Pours black with brown head. Aroma is yeasty with some dark smoky malt and fruit esters. Flavor is more fruity with more noticeable yeast taste. The malt has just enough presence to smooth out the other flavors making this probably the best beer available in Grenada (where I currently reside).

JaBier (5454) - Capital City, Ohio, USA - APR 4, 2014
Haven’t had this one in at least 6 years, but remember really liking it. Bottle purchased at Kroger. Black pour with a thick tan head. Aroma of malt and dank English yeast with some chocolate and roast. Malty and sweet flavor with some chocolate and big raisin. Didn’t like it as much as I did many years ago.

mzaar (2023) - Varberg, SWEDEN - APR 4, 2014
Flaska. Svart dryck med mjölkchokladfärgat skum. I både smak och doft är det kakao och vanilj som gäller. I smaken dessutom spår av kaffe. Mjuk och len munkänsla.

Patrickctenchi (4722) - Cox’s Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - APR 3, 2014
Bottle: Pours very dark brown with a thick, dark head. Milk, chocolate...slightly oxidized aroma. Very sweet chocolate/caramel malt...lactic, sugary cream. Too sweet....cloying and unpleasant.
