Bottle or tap I can’t remember. This was pretty impressive, especially from a brewery I had never heard of until this festival. Really well blended flavors of chocolate and coffee. Milk chocolate mouthfeel. Nice

12 ounce bottle from Belmont Party Supply. Pours nearly black with a thin brown head that fades quickly. Aroma of roasted malts, chocolate and espresso. The taste is roasted malts, rich coffee notes, caramel and a faint hoppy finish. Thin-medium bodied. Very tasty. I could drink this all day... and the next day. Never had these guys’ beers before tonight, but so far I’m impressed.

12oz bottle, purchased from Dutch’s for $1.50. Totally opaque black color, bubbles on side of glass. Light-to-medium brown minimal head around the perimeter. Little lacing. Aroma is a good roasty coffee, some chocolate. But it’s not very strong - bordering on tasting watered down. Carbonation further masks the aroma. Texture is good, however, and aftertaste is moderately pleasant. Light bitter taste.

Bottle. Nose is roast chocolate, coffee burn, licorice. A little sweetness amid the heavy, heavy roast. Pours a rich dark brown/black with a dark brown head. Light body, inky and silken, roasty but smooth, sweet chocolate and a touch of berry without ash encroachment. Balanced and very drinkable, complex and clean and tasty!

12 oz bottle. Pours a clear dark brown body with a small fizzy brown head that faded to a thin wispy film. The nose is very nice, deep roasted malt with some nice coffee and bakers chocolate accents. The flavor is also pretty solid, great chocolate and dry roasted malts make for a rather rich and yet easy drinking Stout. The finish is laced with fresh roasted coffee notes and just the lightest bit of malt bitterness that dries it out a bit. There’s also a light bit of hops in there that suggests a citrusy note that comes from some coffee beans. Mouthfeel is creamy and really smooth with perfect light carbonation. No astringency at all. This was really a big surprise for me, I was not expecting much at all, but this is a really really solid Stout that I would drink all the time if I had access to it. It actually reminds me quite a bit of DFH Chicory Stout come to think of it. Great beer.

12oz bottle from a random trade at Dark Lord Day. Pours a black body with a thin, creamy, dark brown head that dissipates slowly and leaves a nice lacing throughout. Aroma has lots of dark chocolate and roast with a pleasant sweetness. A touch of caramel, a distinct dark fruit, coffee, and a bit of a milky chocolate as well. Flavor is similar. Fairly sweet with lots of dark chocolates as well as a milky sweetness. More distinct dark fruits with some caramel, roast, a light coffee, and a bit of a vanilla sweetness. Finishes sweet and chocolatey, but with a balanced roastiness that helps this end creamy and slowly dries with a light bitterness. Lengthy aftertaste following a full, creamy, chewy body and medium-light carbonation. Overall, a pretty solid stout. Fairly sweet and chocolatey, but well balanced with a solid roasty, coffee presence. I like the dark fruit hints to this as well. Not bad at all.

12oz bottle poured into my Narke tulip...Dark brown pour with a light tan head that rises only for a second, then leaves a small boring ring. Not much of a looker, like that blonde chick Donna...The aroma is pretty sweet on the front, creamy chocolate. Finish is more coffee with a little bitterness, roast, and hops. Reminds me of an oatmeal stout...Taste just totally fails. Most of the sweet on the front is gone, just bland bitter coffee and alcohol. So boring, no touch. Skip.

Draft at the Cincy Winter Beerfest. Aroma is roasted malts. Notes of coffee and dark chocolate come out as well. Palate is thick and chewy. Flavor is a little sweet, bringing out a carmel quality. Not bad.

Surprisingly complex. Purchased to try a local Cincy brew (usually underwhelmed in these situations). The taste/palate begins with a big mouthfeel, but somewhat short on flavor. The swallow - finish is loaded with black coffee, bitter chocolate, and dry malt. Impressive. Filling.

Dark beer with a whispy galexy of beige carbonation on the surface. Soft chocolate nose. Some lactic acidity and chalkiness and milk chocolate. Sort of like a stale Hershey’s Kiss. Some grassy hops in the finish. Pretty solid stout.
