Black with a thick tan/brown head. Aroma of roast coffee. Taste is malty and sweet, some coffee and chocolate, but with a bit of a burnt/sooty taste that detracts just a bit. Still a pretty good stout.

12oz bottle poured very very dark brown but not the dark opaque black that some stouts have. Tan fluffy head. Decent aroma with roasted malt. Def coffee flavor with a nut flavor going down with hints of chocolate. Decent stout but a little light for my taste.

Pours a straight black body with a lasting tan head. Big roasted coffee flavor. Dry finish. Pretty solid stout.

Schroppfy (2360) - Łódż, Warsaw, Poland; Michigan, Ohio, USA - SEP 3, 2009
Good and roasty, mostly but not completely dry - a little raisiny sweetness but not much. A good hit of coffee. Pours and stays a little still. Coffee acidity shows up in the flavor, ash, not well integrated - separate. Piney hops, for example, are in the taste too. Could mellow.

Braudog (5584) - Hampton, Virginia, USA - JUL 3, 2009
UPDATED: JUL 4, 2009 Bottle. The aroma on this big stout is killer ... More coffee than my morning Joe. this drinks with a whoop-ass java overtone, sweetly drinkable. I think I’ve found my favorite Ohio beer. (#3572, 7/3/2009)

phaleslu (6281) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUN 30, 2009
12 oz. bottle. Dark brown pour, tan head. Coffee and chocolate in aroma and flavor. Better stout than expected from what is now shaping up to be my favorite Cincinnati brewery.

Bottle courtesy of alexsdad06. Pours dark brown with a thin white head. Smells of chocolate, roasted malt, peppery. Tastes of chocolate, sweet malt, molasses. Spicy finish. Nice!

WeeHeavySD (3360) - San Diego (Hillcrest), Oregon, USA - FEB 24, 2009
12oz recent bonus, I think from Alexsdad06. Pours black with a nice puffy light brown head. Nose is rich and somewhat chocolatly and slightly off. Taste is sweet and some what chocolaty. Something seems off to me, but on some level this is pretty good.

12 oz. bottle. Pours balck in color with a small tan head that disappears quickly. The aroma is a pleasing mix of roasted malt, mildly sweet caramel, chocolate, and a hint of coffee. The flavor is big roasted malt and black coffee. The chocolate makes its way in as well. This finishes rather abruptly. Medium-full bodied and smooth. I am very happy with this beer especially since it is a small local company.
