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.

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.

Smooth, rich, malty, sweet, and flavorful. A nice surprise on tap at a chai restaurant.

12oz bottle via six pack from Lacey Liquors. Pours a dark brown color with a thin fizzy tan head. Aroma of roasted nuts, raisin, dark chocolate, and toffee. Taste is rich roasted malt, cocoa, raisins, and walnuts. Mouthfeel is a little thin for a stout, but is really tasty.

it is well balanced as well as formidable in body and flavor. malt, cocoa and raisin create a full flavored lightly sweet stout that is dark and satisfying.

Solid effort from the garden state, not as good as the elite stouts, but above average. Glad I bought a six pack.

Ack with rimming tan head; aroma is sweet with hints of roasted malt; Flava of nice rotated malt and vanilla softly fading to a finish of tangy grassy malt; feels medium and silky

Location: Draft at Little Town NJ, 4/25/13

Aroma: The nose is fairnt roasted malts, some coffee, and a bit of chocolate
Appearance: It pours a basically black color with a small head on it
Flavor: The taste is similar to the nose, roasty and a little sweet, on the bland side
Palate: The body is light-medium, it has a decently creamy feel, and a soft carbonation
Overall Impression: This one is not a favorite for me. I really want NJ Brewing to be good because they are so close, but their beers are just a little dull...

Coffee. Dark black color. Smooth, but nothing special jumps out. Thin feel. Good flavor and enjoyable. Rates well but low on the totem pole for stouts.
