Looks exactly like a dark roast coffee. Big carbonation on the tongue a thick chocolate syrup taste and a pretty nice coffee aroma and taste come in the back. Very easy drinking. Not the most flavor you would look for in this style.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Black or dark brown pour with thin layer of offwhite head. Strong creamy vanilla scent, a little doughy. Taste is sweet cola syrup, hot chocolate, heavy vanilla, and a little roasted malt, clean finish. Not a bad beer but a bit sweet and heavy on the vanilla.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap: The aroma consists of heavy milk chocolate, caramel, and a touch of vanilla. It’s a dark brown with no transparency and a one finger tan head that quickly fades to a thin ring around the edges of the glass. The flavor starts with moderate-heavy heavy milk chocolate with some light caramel. There is some light fruit in the background. The finish has light-moderate roasted coffee and vanilla. It’s medium bodied with mild carbonation. Overall, the sweetness wears on me a little.

Draft at The Oak Cafe. Pours black with very little head. Aromas are cocoa, coffee and a hint a mint. Tastes sorta like a minty chocolate ice cream. Very thin and a little watery. Vanilla in the finish. An ok stout.

Draft. The pour is a very dark brown. Head was rich and light brown color. The aroma is full of chocolate. The taste continues the chocolate, big and bold. A good stout.

2.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Smells great. Chocolate and a bit of coffee. Then tastes decent then tastes like cigarettes. I would like to turn of the aftertaste. The aroma and initial taste is great and then it completely falls apart.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft sample at brewpub. Poured a black color with an average light brown head that lasted and produced good lacing. Medium to heavy chocolate coffee aroma. Medium to full body with a sticky creamy texture and flat carbonation. Full sweet roasted malt flavor with a moderate sweet finish of average duration. Good brew.

3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Sampler from the 8th Street Grille in Holland. Pours charcoal black with a off-brown head. Aroma is chocolate syrup, coffee and some sweet fruits. Taste is bakers chocolate, some coffee flavor. Perhaps a touch weak. Finishes long and sweet with a bit of bitterness. Unexpectedly nice in a sampler with Breakfast Stout - it held its own!

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cocoa aroma. Deep brown in color with a tan head. Cocoa powder and tootsie roll chocolatiness...not the kind of chocolate flavors I prefer.
