OnWisconsin (132) - Wisconsin, USA - JAN 5, 2013
Dark brown with hints of light shining through. Has an off white 1 finger head. Aroma is that of burnt caramel, dark chocolate and roasted malts. This beer first hits the palate with bitter chocolate and vanilla, followed by coffee and finishing with some mild bitterness. Mouthfeel is on the lighter side with carbonation on heavier side.

12 ounce bottle from Kroger Athens, OH, opened 7/18/14. Pours a dark brown color with a medium sized fizzy brown head. Poor head retention. Aroma of roasted malt, coffee, mild hops. The taste is chocolate, roast, vanilla, dark fruits. Thin bodied. Decent.

jbrana (449) - NASHVILLE, Tennessee, USA - AUG 28, 2014
Bitter and slightly tart. Not sure if this is a bad bottle or if this is what it is supposed to taste like.

bartlebier (1717) - Belchum im Breisgau, GERMANY - AUG 11, 2014
12oz bought somewhere along the road in WI, 09/2013. Pours exquisitely rich coffee with rich espresso crema. Tangy aroma of liquorice and filter coffee, continued in taste, only getting more riche and chocolate-full as it warms, with a thinner liquid tobacco edge. Very well balanced, up until the dry roast finish.

snoworsummer (2140) - baltimore, Maryland, USA - APR 4, 2014
From a bottle. Pours dark brown with a creamy tan head. Tastes like bitter coffee, burnt toast, with some strong, tangy yeast flavor. Light/medium body and carbonation. Smells like a nutty, roasted coffee.

1pintatatime (76) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 21, 2014
Pours nearly black with a thin heat that quickly dissipates.No real aroma to speak of. Flavor is initially sweet (but not too sweet) with a rich toasted malt backbone. Hints of black licorice, very dark chocolate, and burnt toast. Finish is reasonably dry. Not terribly complex but whats there is quite good.

hotstuff (4092) - Indiana, USA - MAR 17, 2014
Rated on 7-31-2010 - This bottled beer has a large creamy, smooth tan head that mostly diminishes, opaque body, suspended carbonation, and one ring of lacing. This beer has a roasted malt, chocolate. The palate is very creamy, watery and thin. Overall, this is a quaffable stout, but for the style it has a thin texture.
