ADesenberg (552) - Ohio, USA - AUG 2, 2011
Bottle: very very dark reddish brown in the light, but black when I just look at it. Itís aromas are that of a malty chocolate, lots of sweetness coming through, and licorice. It has a nice tan head that sticks around. Itís not as roasty or chocolaty as I expected by itís aroma and appearance. Itís just a nicely balanced sweetish stout, I actually really like it. It has a nice lively, carbonation that rounds it out as a great, drinkable, tasty beer.

12oz bottle, pours a very dark brown with a slight reddish hue in the light with a nice off white head with lacing, aroma has nice touches of malt with a touch of chocolate, the flavor has a nice front end of burnt malt with a finish of chocolate and a hint of coffee, Iím actually very surprised by this one and very happy with it.

portableparty (1909) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - MAY 26, 2011
Bottle to snifter. Pour is clear dark brown which appears black once in glass and leaves a soapy kahki head that dissipates to a collar. Aroma is bitter burnt malt and has some faint coffee notes as well. Taste is pretty nice starts bitter burnt roasted malt that leads into a little bit of chocolate and coffee. Palate is thin and gritty with a bitter dry finish. Not bad stout. I enjoyed this one a lot more than there IPA.

Rciesla (5499) - Exit 15W, New Jersey, USA - MAY 10, 2011
A new stout at my shop rite, what a plesant surprise! This is infinitely better (and better then infinium) then the Poland spring coupon that will print out when i pick up the next case of water. /Rant. Bottle. Pours a dark bruin body with a tan head. Malty up front. Nice chocolate malt tones, hints of drier malt characters, roasted coffee and some light oats. Soft body light bitter roast with a light malty sweetness. Pretty dull overall sure it has some flavor but nothing really showcased. Still to me, it gets good marks as an easy drinking stout.

Pangaeaís gotta new fan. Aroma strong dark chocolate with a hint of coffee. Pours black with a light tan head. Taste is robust with chocolate with hints of espresso. Very roasty. Creamy on the palate with a fizz on the tongue. Enjoyable and would definitely buy again.

Oelschlaeger (13) - Arkansas, USA - APR 9, 2011
Almost perfect. This is my new favorite and I canít find any more. This beer is so complex but done right. Not too syrupy like a popular Irish brand. It has the proper amount of viscosity. Also not too heavy. Very, very good. A++

kjohns (131) - North Dakota, USA - MAR 30, 2011
Pours black with a large frothy tan head. Malty aroma mixed with chocolate and coffee. Chocolate and coffee come through as well in the taste along with some sweeter caramel notes and a nice coffee aftertaste. Medium body and not heavily carbonated. A pretty decent stout overall.

The aroma smells like coffee beans and malt. Very smooth stout, flavor. A bit dry but not too bad.

mallons72 (156) - livonia, Michigan, USA - MAR 26, 2011
This was a very, very good beer. 12 oz tulip glass - Hopcat in Grand Rapids. Smooth stout, alcohol present - coffee/caramel - the norm, but well done.

12oz bottle in a tulip. Pours black with a lingering, lacy, beige head. Aroma of roasted malts, coffee, and some light floral hops. The roasted malts are strong, followed by a light coffee aftertaste. Smooth texture. A pretty good stout.
