ACHops (759) - Seattle, Washington, USA - DEC 20, 2014
On tap @ Reuben’s. Pours inky black with thin dark mocha head. Aroma is faint medium dark chocolate malt, light sweet chocolate, and a bit of coffee on the back. Taste is super smooth creamy lightly roasty malt, coffee and bittersweet chocolate on the finish. Aroma and taste are a bit underwhelming here, but the body and mouthfeel on this are amazing.

(Tap) This is a great stout. Some astringency which is its biggest flaw. Slightly too bitter for my taste, but a great stout regardless.

At the brewery. Rich appearance and light head. This is just an excellent stout. Good balance of flavors.

adnielsen (9464) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - JUL 5, 2014
On tap @ the brewery during 7/5/2014 Seattle beer tour. Pours an orangish brown appearance with a brown head. Definitely get the oats in the nose. Seems a bit sweet and chocolate-y. Flavor is a little twangy. Some plum and red grape notes. Dark chocolate. Pretty fruity. Moderate sweetness and bitterness. One of my last favorites here.

maxwelldeux (3801) - Everett, Washington, USA - JUN 26, 2014
Bottle. Pours a very dark brown color with a moderate light brown head on it. Nose is a little bit roasty with some oats and grains in there as well. Taste is roasty with a bit of coffee to it, but I don’t get the chocolate that the description suggests. OK, but nothing amazing.

50belair (2488) - Florida, USA - JUN 10, 2014
On tap at the brewery. Dark brown pour with an off white head. Dark roasted malt and coffee aromas. Creamy and smooth with roasted malt and chocolate notes. Toffee undercurrents. Very good mouthfeel. Impressive with a nice body.

fiulijn (15260) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 19, 2014
Draught at the brewery
Dark color, almost black, with compact beige head. Aroma of roasted malt, light coffee, some cardboard. The mouthfeel is fairly dry, not as strong as expected; the roasted malt dominates, there is just a hint of chocolate, and some molasses. Strange.

5000 (6298) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - MAY 17, 2014
Bottle:   Very oatmeal like, slightly dry, some dark chocolate, a touch ashy, and fairly creamy.   Smooth overall, hard to believe its 8.4%.   Very easy to drink, soft, smooth.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate to full.   Easy, flavorful, smooth.   Pretty tasty!

jesperhammer (3049) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAY 9, 2014
09-MAY-2014, draft @Pizzeria Paradiso, Georgetown. Black with grey’ish head. Aroma is coffee and a touch of spice. Taste is coffee, oat, bread, spice, dark fruit. Creamy, soft carbonation. Not 9% but easy drinking.
