toml219 (209) - California, USA - SEP 26, 2013
Serving type: bottle Appearance- Pours Black with a nice creamy tan head and very nice lace Aroma- Roasted dark malt and sweet chocolate coffee T/P - Dry with a roasted burnt taste of coffee and chocolate. The burnt bitter after taste tends to linger a little too long. Overall- Each initial sip is very good but the after taste really distracts form its drink ability. Would go with other stouts rather than pick this one up again.

Pours dark brown with an attractive tan head and a treacle aroma. There is a nutty smoked malt flavor with some toffee and a long dry finish. Very tasty.

theOptimator (284) - Sacramento, California, USA - DEC 11, 2010
Aroma is roasty bready. Appearance is dark brown black, tan head. Looks like a stout. Taste is roasted barley, toffee, coffee. Very bright. Sweeter than expected. Palate is roasty. Medium palate. Very nice drinker. Lots of flavor..... not overly complex.... a good quality stout.

HOPSHUNTER (742) - Tampa, Florida, USA - NOV 29, 2010
Bottle thanks to markwise for the share. Dark, reddish brown pour with a light brown head. Nose is loaded with dark roasted malts, caramel, chocolate, coffee, and some fruity hop esters. Medium body with moderate carbonation. Flavor is hard roasted or burnt with a decent amount of hop bitterness, notes of dark cocoa, black malt, and burnt coffee. Finishes malty and slightly bitter.

markwise (4467) - North of Tampa, Florida, USA - NOV 11, 2010
Thanks to IrishBoy for this one as a bonus. Pours dark brown with an off-white head. Nose is dry cocoa, earth, dirt, and some roast. Flavor is roast, cocoa, earth, and dry chocolate. Finish of this light to medium-bodied beer linger with chocolate and roast. Interesting.

Ibrew2or3 (6835) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - NOV 6, 2010
Courtesy of markwise. Thanks Mark, I’ve been wanting to try this for years now. Pours deep darkness with thin tan head. The aroma is rich and yummy initially as the freshly popped elixir fills the air with its goodness. I get chocolate, molasses, brown sugar and dark roasted malts all coming together in pleasing harmony. The taste is similar with black strap molasses, chocolate, dark roasted malts, dark roasted coffee and a sweet sense of vanilla. Nice.

Oscbert (1019) - Sacramento, California, USA - JUN 6, 2010
~Strong roasted coffee aroma with bready malts and chocolate. ~Pours very black with some red highlights when held to light. Thick tan creamy lasting head. ~Roasted coffee like flavor with medium hop and roast bitterness. Some acidity. ~Medium bodied with medium C02. light astringency. Lasting roasted dry bitter finish. ~Enjoyable brew could have a couple then get worn out from the roasty bitterness. I liked it, but wouldn’t buy it again. A little more sweetness in this would be nice.

Fairly average pour, a dark brown color with a nice brown head. Aroma is very rich, with notes of chocolate and coffee. It is a bit mild in taste but still delicious - chocolate coffee and caramel malts with a bit of a dry finish. Mouthfeel is the same, mild but definitely not a bad thing. I’m by no means a dry stout person, but mild yet delicious flavors and mouthfeel make for a pretty damn drinkable stout for the price. Not bad.
