Dark as all hell... with a suntanned head. Really nice roasty-toasty-coffee flavors. Body and mouthfeel didnít have as much íheartí as its darkness though; seemed just a little thin. I thought that it needed a little more malt íbackboneí to balance out itís severe robustness. And it seemed to be pretty light on the hops, which isnít necessarily expected in a stout, but itís just something I like. I kind of had a love/hate thing going with this beer. Maybe the mysterious ways of Magic Hat are getting to me?

What a great beer. Lots of sweet malt, coffee, roast, and strangely enough, a lot of chocolate (more typical of a robust porter). It almost tasted as if the grain bill included equal portions of roasted barley and chocolate malt. Again, great stuff.

Dark black with dark brown foam. Very burnt and dry, but short, flavour. Dangerously drinkable.

High hopes off the name. It pours wonderfully with a beautiful, dark, lasting head. Smells nice like a fine french roast. Taste: Wheres the body? Whose got the body? Way to lacking in malty chewiness and was a real dissapointment. Certainly not enough abv to warrnt being a winter warmer. Similar to Saranac mocha stout

This beer didnít seem full enough. Light for an oatmeal stout.

Great outmeal stout, one of my all time favorite stout, and my favorite Magic Hat beer. Love the bittersweet chocolate flavor.
