Very dark brown color. Huge nose of cacao, pepper, coffee, dark chocolate and roasted malts. Very nice sweet malty. Sweet, full bodied, lots of pepper, coffee, caramel, alcohol so well hidden. Mildly sweet. Perfectly put together with coffee and pepper lingering in the finish.

UPDATED: JUN 9, 2016 Pitch black color with no head. Aroma of dark chocolate and espresso. Flavor is mostly dry cocoa. Very full bodied. Light roast. Some boirbony vanilla. Faint heat that takes half a bottle to show. It’s tasty, but there honestly is not much here.

12 oz. bottle. Pours oily black brown with a thick mocha head that settles to a thin film. Aroma has noticeable chili peppers over riding chocolate roasted malt and coffee. Taste is smooth chocolate malt vanilla with tons of coffee flavor and the pepper just creeps all the way through without stealing the show. Palate is full rich little oily. Awesome stout!

On tap at the Bottle Shop: Druid Street. Pours black with small tan head. Lots of chocolate, roasted coffee, vanilla, bit spicy. Sweetish but just right. Thick and oily. Bit warming, but alcohol is well hidden. Smooth. Full bodied, complex. Truly a great brew.

This is a big beer. Boozy and tasty. Viscous black pour. Creamy brown head that lasts a long time. Very little nose. Sweet on the front end, heavy coffee and bitter on the back end. This beer has a thick substantial body. Some of the best coffee flavor I have had in a beer. I wish I could find this more easily.

Gift from John L. The aroma is malt, coffee, roadty coffee. Pours black with tan head,mostly diminishing and very good lacing. The taste is bitter, deep and thick. The body is medium, the texture creamy, the carbonation lively and the finish light bitter. Excellent!
