Black appearance with a nice brown head. Chocolatey coffee notes that balance really well with the creamy body. Nice and heavy, like a stout should be. Great in front of an outdoor fire. Winner.

UPDATED: OCT 14, 2007 Growler via Mys Swap 2.0 (thanks cewldre!). Pours black with a huge tan head. Nose is chocolate, roasty, and floral hops. Tastes just like it smells, is pretty sweet with a nice mocha finish. Body is light, carbonation moderate/high. Tis is quite tasty and highly sessionable. I would rate it even higher if it wasn’t so over-carbonated.

Thanks to hopdog for the growler... Appears a near black with chestnut edges when held up to the light. The small, tan head fades into a mild film and collar. Smell is of chocolate, caramel, nougat, cream, fresh peanuts, coffee, and cocoa powder. Taste echoes the aromas with some standout mocha flavors that make for an interesting brew. Mouthfeel is medium-full bodied, nutty, with some java lingering.

Poured an opaque black / red color with a medium sized, light tan head that left light lacing on the glass. Aroma of vanilla, roasted malts, and chocolate. Taste of chocolate, roast, light caramel malts, with dark fruits, and a fully attenuated, dry, finish. A straight-forward stout here.

ChainGangGuy (4423) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - JUL 25, 2007
Appearance: Pours a black body with a thin, khaki-colored head. Smell: Sweet-smelling aroma of coffee, dry cocoa, and liquorice candy. Taste: A tasty blend of caramel, chocolate milk, and liquorice tea with only the tiniest measure of hops showing as it warms. Ends with a bit of roastiness on the altogether soft, sweet finish. Mouthfeel: Medium-thin body. Low carbonation. Drinkability: Though a light stout, its wonderfully flavorful and immensely drinkable.
