Pawola22 (3262) - Plainfield, Illinois, USA - OCT 17, 2011
On tap at the brewpub. Pours a very deep brown colored body with a thin, creamy, brown head that dissipates slowly and leaves a moderate lacing. Aroma is sweeter roasts with some dark chocolate, a touch of licorice, and a good amount of coffee. Some oatmeal and a bit of a lactose sweetness with a few dark fruits as well. Flavor is similar. Lots of coffee and roasts up front with a bit of a lactose sweetness and some chocolate and oatmeal with a few dark fruits. Finishes dry with some roasts and a light bitterness as well as some lactose and chocolate sweetness. Fairly lengthy aftertaste following a medium-light body and a moderate carbonation. Overall, a pretty solid stout. Flavorful and well balanced. Not bad at all.

MrChopin (4303) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - DEC 31, 2009
On tap at brewery. Dark brown with a tan head. Faintly green nose mainly of fudge, also light coffee and alcohol. The flavor has less chocolate, more roasted malt, and exhibits an odd green plant note, almost pine-like. The body is way too silky and thin for the large flavors, so this could use some boosting. Still, I liked it.

Sample at the brewpub. Black pour with a medium light brown head. Creamy oatmeal nose with dry roast and some dark fruit notes. Flavor is dark fruit up front with a bit of sweetness, transitioning to a bone dry roasty finish. Nice complex stout.
