ellolovey (428) - Georgia, USA - APR 6, 2013
On tap at Summits. Pours a midnight black with creamy tan head. Cream lacing coats the glass all the way to the end. Aroma of roasted malts, coffee, and dark chocolate. Tastes just like it smells roasted malts, coffee grinds, dark chocolate, and has a bit of an earthy dirt taste. Creamy and velvety smooth. A little thin though. Some dark fruits on the backbone. Bitter earthy finish.

RoyalFlushing (322) - Mamaroneck, New York, USA - OCT 18, 2012
Bottle #306 poured a deep cola with a medium mocha head and notable lacing. Aroma includes coffee beans, nestle quick, and roasted malt. Taste begins with coffee and roasted malt before baker chocolate and palatable espresso bitterness are introduced. Enjoyable creamy mouthfeel after a smooth finish. Very drinkable roasty foreign stout.

469/1515. Thanks so much for hooking this one up, Marshall! Owe ya one. 750, capped, ceramic bottle with swingtop. Pours jet black with a surging, gorgeous dark tan creamy mousse on top. Looks like a chunk of obsidian with some really rich pancake batter slathered across it. Beautiful rich chocolate nose, a nice roast with a beautiful cocoa accent layered in. Creamy medium body with restrained carb. Chocolate, cocoa, and roasty notes on the mid palate, with a mild chocolatey finish. Not getting a whole lot of belgian yeast esters, but that doesn’t mean they’re not there doing something interesting, and I just haven’t teased it out yet. Is this beer worth $30? Yes--for 4 of them for sure, and probably for 3. But $30 for one makes this a one and done.

Suttree (4908) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - SEP 20, 2012
Black, thinnish brown head. Dry, flinty, lightly fruity aroma. Lots of coffee, too. Coffee, then some fruity flavors. Dry finish, though. Not bad
