Tmoney99 (10412) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - FEB 10, 2013
Tap sample. Poured a black color with a moderate to large frothy brown head that lasted and produced sticky layers excellent lacing. Medium to heavy roasted sweet chocolate malt, licorice, dark fruit aroma. Medium to full body with a smooth texture and flat carbonation. Medium to heavy complex dark sweet stout flavor with a heavy smooth dark sweet finish of moderate to long duration. Very well balanced complex stout. This is a standout beer.

BOLTZ7555 (2780) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - JAN 13, 2013
On tap at PP Carlsbad. Beautiful midnight pour with a dense mocha head that left significant lacing. Slightly lighter than its BA version when held to light (surprising). Amazingly rich and unique base beer with all of the complementing qualities present. Godiva chocolate, Hershey syrup, and Nestlé Quik cocoa powder are there. Soakes up all that compliments it...whatever the brewer wants to add. Delicious on its own but benefits from other treatments!

dreadnord (1013) - San Diego, California, USA - DEC 29, 2012
Pours big and black as "night" with a huge brown head. Nose is coffee, chocolate, wood, , dark fruits, nuts and grass. A lot going on in the nose. The taste is a perfect balanced bittersweet with a slight coffee tart tinge that really gives the taste a unique dimension. Mouthfeel is crisp yet sticky, heavy body and a big long finish.
