Draft. Pours near black with a thin beige head. Roasted malty aroma with dark chocolate and a hint of dark fruits. The flavor has roasted malts, light coffee, and some almost sherry like fruity notes. Solid.

russwbeck (117) - Tyrone, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 2, 2011
Not as dark as I would expect a big stout, brown but with some hint of red. Nice light brown head that only lasts a bit and doesn’t lace hardly at all. A surprising sweetness up front, plenty of roastiness and chocolate malts. The sweetness from the smell comes up front on the taste, which gives way to the chocolate roasted malts. Really pleasant taste. A bit lighter than most big stouts, which isn’t bad. Not much carbonation. Really good, interesting drink that keeps you coming back for more.

BuckeyeBoy (2872) - Boise, Idaho, USA - JAN 28, 2011
22oz Bottle Pours out dark brown almost black topped with a small tan head. Aroma was of dark chocolate, light pine hops, rich roast malts, and a little coffee. Taste was more of the chocolate, dark roast, and some sweet pit fruit.

jake65 (2729) - Boise, Idaho, USA - JAN 2, 2011
Bottle: IMO, the perfect image of a stout: Dark, dark brown pour with a finger of creamy brown head. Whispy bits of lacing and the suggestion that it will be thick as a milkshake. Nose is sweet with cocoa and espresso with very light roasty tones. Taste brings forth more of the roast along with a richer espresso presence. Roasty, some ashes, a sweet little bit of dark fruits. Finishes with a light bittersweetness. Quite delicious.

Bottle. Brought back from Washington State by my friend Rachel. Pours totally opaque black, thin tan head, spotty to excellent lacing. Nose is bitter black chocolate, light acid, some creamy coffee/Turkish coffee notes here too. Very light licorice. Flavours of light acid, light roast, some coffee and chocolate here too.

Bottle. Black color with tan foam. Nice chocolate malt ball, vanilla, roasty aromas. Smooth full bodied mouthfeel. Hearty roasted, toasted dark bread nutty, oily flavors, very good stout.

daknole (9443) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - OCT 31, 2010
Very dark pour with a nice brown head. Coffee, roasted malt, ash, dark chocolate, charcoal aroma. Flavor is quite bitter but has some nice dark dried fruit, coffee, chocolate, ash. Not bad at all. Just a bit astringent.

zebracakes (1339) - Washington DC, USA - OCT 29, 2010
Bomber. Pours black brown, tan head. Aroma is malt, molasses, caramel. Flavor is smoke, pine, bourbon, molasses, vanilla, and bitter coffee. Oilier mouth feel than I expected, given the alcohol content.
