Lowe1983 (1343) - Dayton, Ohio, USA - NOV 28, 2011
Pours a black color with a tan head. Aroma is of chocolate, coffee, and roasted malts. Flavor is pretty strong of roasted malts and coffee with some chocolate and caramel malts. Not bad.

12 oz bottle from pick a sixer at PW...pours almost black with foamy head...some lacing. Bitter chocolate / coffee but done smoothly...not at all boozy like some other stouts and other stronger beers....well done and very tasty

jsquire (3402) - St. Marys, Ohio, USA - NOV 17, 2011
Opaque dark beer with a nice fluffy beige head that shrank to an attractive whisp. Nose of roasted grains and coffee gounds with some molassess sweetness. Lots of sweetened coffee flavors with burnt toast, toffee and a dark green grassy hop. Bitter coffee in the finish. The body seems a little thin, but still a tastey stout.

nuplastikk (4299) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 15, 2011
Draft at OF. Opaque brown black. Steady brown-beige head. Some roasty chocolate bitterness up front fades into a sweet, watery finish. Rather average in most respects, enjoyable enough. Cocoa chocolate aroma.

Dogbrick (7669) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - NOV 13, 2011
Pours black with a medium frothy off-white head that dissipates slowly to a film. Top ring of lace with spots underneath. Roasty malt aroma with notes of chocolate and hops. Medium body with flavors of burnt malt, chocolate, mild coffee and hops. The finish is roasty with a short coffee aftertaste. Above average overall.

mrjaxson (283) - .08 Junction, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 6, 2011
Shades of chocolate and toffee in the aroma but nothing overwhelming. Pours to a medium brown head. A quick snap of bitterness on first taste, which slowly fades to a dry finish. Lighter weight than most stouts. I get a sense of heavier carbonation on the tongue, but it would take a spotlight to actually look through this inky stout to spot the bubbles. Pleasant enough.

DrSilverworm (6032) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - OCT 28, 2011
12oz bottle. Black color, minimal light brown head. Carbonation a bit pronounced. Really nice roasty bitter taste. Some coffee - aroma is less impressive than the taste, but still good. Little loose spots of lace. Visible sediment on the bottom. A good stout.

ESATIKKFAN (18) - New Jersey, USA - OCT 1, 2011
Bottle into a snifter. Pours a deep brown with a frothy head. Smell has a sweet toffee note with some chocolate and coffee hints. The body is full and the taste is very good. It had a sweet taste with vanilla and coffee hints. What I liked about this beer is that it had a great imperial stout taste without the high alcohol taste and impact that often accompanies this style.
