Our stout is a strong, full-bodied chocolate stout, brewed with real belgian dark chocolate and dark malt, with just enough hop character to balance the sweetness.

(Bottle). Compliments of Mike. Nice aroma of cocoa, light malt and some coffee. The flavor is similar. Very well done and crafted by this notable up-and-coming New Jersey Brewer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours a dark brown with a foamy tan head. Smells of chocolate, nuts. Taste is sweet and moderately bitter - chocolate, roasty, a bit nutty - robust and light.

APPEARANCE - black, as expected. NOSE - lightest roastiness and a touch of coffee. Improves substantially as it warms up - more than most. FLAVOR - as it approaches arena temperature, the little coffee and roasty notes that it has to offer start to show themselves. NOTES - good textbook stout.

demannu (247) - New Jersey, USA - APR 21, 2015
Mild chocolate aroma. Dark brown/black color with minimal head and no lacing. Light somewhat slick mouth feel. On the sweet side. Not much chocolate coming through. Getting more mild fruit flavor than typical stout flavors. Not all that good overall.

Purchased from Bottle King in Hackettstown, NJ. Drank out of a twelve ounce bottle. Aromas of chocolate and malts. Tastes of chocolate and raisens. Not a huge fan.

Pours a dark brown with off-white head. Cocoa nibs, vanilla, oak aromas. Slightly bitter malts, offset by chocolate sweetness. A nice stout.

Bottle. Nose is deep, dark chocolate with some dark malt but not really any roast; more like ink and plum. Pitch black pour with a noisy, sudsy brown head. Watery-light medium body loaded up with velvety dark chocolate, off-dry and smooth with little fizzes of carbonation but nothing harsh. Some earthy, deep toffee but nothing sticky or too-rich, with flits of sharp berry and cherry here and there, some plummy depth, very mild and earthy hops. Actually does achieve a measure of balance, but it’s smooth and gentle all the way through with nice malt layering/complexity. Surprisingly well executed and tasty!

Pours a dark black with light head. Has a faint aroma of chocolate and coffee. Has a good mix of coffee, chocolate, malts, some spices, and raisins.
