12oz bottle (Old Notes)-Pours a dark brown almost black with a decent tan head. Aroma of roasted malt, coffee, and chocolate. Taste of the same. This full bodied brew is well balanced and goes down smooth.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
@ Party Town / Florence KY --- Opaque dark brown with 1" brown head, bands of lace. Taste is roasted malt with coffee and chocolate entering in the palate, a light tart berry and bittering in the finish. There is a lot going on here, but the combination is not an enjoyable thing for me. Decent, not great.

Sweet chocolate/coffee aroma, jet black with a very thin creamy head, rich bitter chocolate and caramel flavours. I could drink a lot of this stuff!

This is a fine example of a smooth, tasty stout. Roasted malty creaminess with a little hops boost on the back end. Watch how it all went down: http://teamchug.com/?p=139

bottle. aroma is largely metallic? taste is roasted malt, coffee, giving way to light chocolate - nice. not as creamy as I’d like from a stout. ok but not spectacular, would like to try on draught someday.

Bottle from Total Wines, Sterling VA. Jet black, with a decent, off-white head. Big, plain chocolate and charred malts aroma. Flavour had more chocolate and roasted malts, before a dry finish. Very good.
