Having a few on tap at home. Black as a coffee bean. The abyss of darkness and the cream of a summer milkshake. Everlasting, frothy, head. Chocolate finish. I'll have another.
This is most certainly true.

Oh goodness... This is an incredible beer. Sweet, fruity aroma. Nice head. Pours jet black. I have not tasted a better beer. And Iím an IPA guy.

Great dark black pour. Limited head. Smells clean, meaning pure smell of malts versus battling against coffee, chocolate and other aromas so prevalent in various stouts. An easy drink for 9%.

Cerveza tipo stout. Aroma fuerte a cafe y chocolate. Apariencia oscura tipica de las stout. Sabor balanceado entre lo amargo y un toque a madera. Se deja tomar a pesar de ser una cerveza de 9% de alcohol.

Buena cerveza negra, sabor a chocolate y cafe, amarga al final con un toque a ahumado, se debe disfrutar de una forma lenta

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
This wonderfully thick and juicy beer pours black as coal into your desired vessel, with a slight khaki head that leaves lacing. Nice aroma of chocolate, coffee, nuts, raisins, earthiness, and hay. Taste is rich and delightful, with a nice floral and earthy hop bitterness to balance the sweet malt. For being such a strong, full flavored beer it is very drinkable and not overwhelming. Full bodied, thick and sticky texture, medium carbonation, with an astringent, long finish.

Great shelf stout. Love that I can find this at my local store. One of the better easy-to-find stouts that are out there.

This is a superb stout. Itís very dark brown color and nice head are beautiful, and they are even more beautiful after a couple of these. The malt is intense, rich, and deep, and the hops are also intense, but they do not over power the malt flavors. Medium to full bodied, this stout should be celebrated.

Pours boot-black in this low-light, with a thick head of finely-bubbled tan that settles into full coating. Thick webs of lacing. The aroma is toast and roasted sweet malt, cinammon, coffee. Taste is finely ground coffee, cocoa, and dark cherry backed by a blanket of booze. With warming, the back end brings in surprising hops and bitterness that balances nicely with the coffee notes. Excellent, but perhaps just a touch too much bitterness and alcohol.
