Enjoyed on tap at Sheffield’s in Chicago, IL after seeing Will Johnson play @ Schubas. This stuff was exceptionally good. Appearance creamy and pitch black. Aroma of lactose, chocolate, a bit of nuts, coffee, pretty appealing. Taste was fantastic. I didn’t take notes while having this, just remembered this being great.

Thanks for the share, Markwise. Nose is chocolate/cocoa, some light roast, and a faint sweetness. Pour is dark brown. Tan head. Taste is sweet roasted malt with some nice cocoa and chocolate flavors. Sweet and delicious.

Thin-ish body from the pour, certainly brown (not black) in color. Good lace, not much head. Some lacto sugars in the nose, though they are entirely absent in the taste. A pretty good (basic) stout, nothing special here.

I liked this one, from the start the aroma gave off a soft cocoa aroma with some light roasted malts as well. This sweet stout is very creamy and full of dark chocolate flavors, leading to a smooth bitter finish. Thanks for the share - you know who you are.

Bottle from atom. Pours a deep brown with thin khaki head. Aroma is light roast coffee with minimal milk chocolate. Taste is light cocoa milk with a thin coffee bean. Overall the silky milk makes this but a little thin in the mouth.

Bomber pours an opaque dark brown with small tan head and some lacing. Not much to smell, but aroma is full of roasted malts, some coffee, and a bit of vanilla in a the finish. Body is medium without too much carbonation. Taste is slightly sweet and mouthfeel is creamy. A good,stout from a favorite local brewer.

growler. aroma is sharp chocolate, general roast, seems balanced immediately. flavor is sizzling cocoa and only a trace of the sweetness expected, easily quaffable and devoid of cloying notes. mushy chocolate pleases.

22oz bomber poured into a tulip glass. Soft, but present aromas of chocolate, coffee, vanilla, and lactose sugar are noticeable. There’s also a slight hint of bourbon-like alcohol in there. It pours a clear and oily dark cola brown color with a light, soapy, light brown head. The head reduces down to a medium thick, sudsy ring with a filmy and soapy surface. A very light soapy lace is left behind. The taste is a medium sweet with a touch of bitter. The beer is a buzzy, creamy and stick, full bodied beer with notes of chocolate, cola, and a hint of nuts. The finish is grainy and slightly woody with caramel and a touch of alcohol warmth. The aftertaste is fairly clean with a light licorice and toast quality.

Pitch black pour with lively off white head. Nose mainly of roast and coffee. Taste if roast, coffee, and chocolate. A little to heavy on carb but creamy. Not bad. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
