I had this one for breakfast and it went very well. A creamy stout with a bit of a dry finish. Not too roasted, malty but not overly sweet. Pretty nice.

Dude this is good. It is entirely better than can Guinness. Sweet roast and chocolate aroma and flavors. Nice full palate with semi-dry finish. Nice long lingering roastiness. Pretty noticeable wack of hops at the end, almost too much but makes it fun.

Black pour, sizeable mocha head. Coffee, oak, roasted malt aroma. Espresso bitterness, strong roasted malt in taste. Heavier body and slick mouth feel. I dig.

Pretty solid offering. Large draught sample of darkness with a lighter caramel head. Nose is sweet roasted malts, nicely balanced. More chocolate than coffee but a little bitter and a little sweet. Flavor follows with a quite smooth finish.

Deep black pour. The aroma is quite roasty. Lots of rich bitter
chocolate and a big middle maltiness. There is a lot of coffee on the
back of the palate. There is a great bit of earthy hoppiness with a
touch of rich bitterness on the back of the palate. There is a fairly
nice flavour. Good balance. Pretty tasty.
