Very dark / black. I’m impressed with the coloring of this beer. The label design is also top notch. Very smokey flavor, not sweet at all (80% cacaoish?) I like it.

12oz bottle. Pours dark brown with a creamy tan head. Big roasted malt aroma with dark chocolate and coffee flavors. Somewhat thin palate but overall an OK stout.

Pours as black as my evil heart. Nice head of foam. However, no distinct aroma. Initial taste is a little thin. Not much in the finish. On the other hand, there's nothing offensive about this. Still, I expected more.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
pours black with a charcoal color head, which there is not much of and dissipates fast. the aroma is malty, with roasted malts. Little coffee and chocolate. the flavor is roasty throughout more towards the end. up front is more chocolate and some coffee finishing with roasted barley flavor. seems to finish dry. Overall this is ok not great

Black cola pour, chocolatey aroma. Mildly roasty flavor. Overly carbonated, like cola. Disappointed. Alas.
