Huge, creamy brown head. Deep brown/black in color. Great bitter coffee on the palate and in the nose. Slight cocoa nibs in both as well. Beautiful beer to behold.

Aroma- huge roasted notes, coffee, chocolate, toffee Appearance-pitch black with a stark white head, some lacing as well Taste- incredible black coffee and roasted notes upfront, some slight vanilla in the mid-palate, and more soft roastiness on the finish Palate- full-bodied, but very soft and sensual Overall- Wow, this one’s a winner for sure. Insane amount of roasted barley and bitterness blends incredibly with the vanilla and slight chocolate. Wonderful!

This dark brown beer has a malt aroma. It has a chocolate coffee flavor. It goes down smooth and reminds me of a creamy coffee. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

RABinCO (1157) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - OCT 28, 2012
Bottle from Daknole. Pours black with a nice half-inch of persistent tan head. Aroma is toasty malts with a bit of coffee. Taste is a nice balance of roasted malts, coffee, toffee, a bit of smokiness, creamy mouthfeel and a slightly dry finish. Not too sweet, not too roasted. Very nice.

Draught @ Magnolia Pub & Brewery, San Francisco. Rated on 15.10.2012.
Pours a black colour with a beige head. Aroma of strong roasted malts, rye and syrup. Flavour of strong roasted malts as well with grassy hops, tobacco, ash and espresso. Sweet honey-like notes as well. Medium bodied, smooth mouthfeel and soft carbonation. Really smooth and pleasant.

DruncanVeasey (7112) - NUNEATON, Top 13, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - SEP 24, 2012
Big bottle from Ales Unlimited, San Francisco. Shiny pitch capped with a fat, subsiding tan head. Sweetly smoky aroma with hints of pepper, smoked juniper (probably), berries, cigar and Ribena. Palate enticing grilled Med veg and blueberry streaks; wreaths of smoke, blueberry and black chocolate muffin dipped in mocha. Balanced, discreetly fruity, bittersweet (mostly sweet) stout with clinging smoky afters.

Poured from a bottle into glass drak brown with tan head. Aroma of coffee and chocolate with a little vanilla. Taste of nice chocolate and vanilla flavors. Very smooth and easy going down. Very nice beer.
