Pours a dark brown with burgundy highlights. The head is tan and sudsy. Definite taste of roasted barley. It is a delicious beer that I will drink again. Is that really Shakespeare on the bottle?

Pours opaque black with thick creamy tan head. Aromas of malt, chocolate and coffee. Tastes of chocolate malt, coffee,oats with a chocolate and flowery hops finish . Thick, full mouthfeel. This is one of the very best stouts.

Tap at Clark St. Pours a black hole of a beer with a finger of tight bubbles that don’t dissipate at all. Malt, vanilla, and chocolate make up the bouquet. Generally smooth and full-bodied but relatively unassuming.

Wow...this is a one great stout!!! Deep chocolate bwon color with an equally dark head. Chocolate-coffee aromas lead you into a gustatory experience you'll never forget. Smooth, rich mouthfeel with deep roasted flavors covering the palate. A dry hoppiness adds to the character of this beer. Finishes somewhat sweet and forever memorable.

Tan head that settles quickly. Smells of roasted coffee and sweet malt. Taste is bitter but sweet with coffee/dark chocolate but not overdone. Aftertaste is pleasant hops. This is a nice beer.

Pours black with a long lasting brown head. Head also had some lacing to it. Tasted of coffee malts with an underlying chocolate taste. A nice amount of hops for a stout.

An excellent oatmeal stout, well balanced with a good combination of hops and malt. Pleasing in appearance and pours with a well defined head.

Pours a deep coffee brown with a caramel colored head. Nose full of cedar, hops, char, malt, and smoke. Full to the brim with charred, smokey character and hoppy balance. Notes of coffee and dark chocolate. Great beer!

The beer has got a very dark, opaque brown body, with a rich brown head. Wonderful lacing and impressive head retention. A truly beautiful stout!

A pronounced earthy hoppiness really fights for the main role in the aroma. However, the strong roasted malt profile is still the dominant. Dark chocolate and coffee, with some toasted bread notes.

The taste is kind of coarse at first, with a very pronounced bitterness and coffee notes. However, after a few moments, it becomes much smooth and a bit more complex. It has a very rich roasted malt profile, with almost tobacco-like notes. Dark chocolate, espresso, a bit of licorice, and oatmeal. The finish is bitter and malty. As the beer warms up, you may get some nice sweetness and a smoother finish. Tasty, yet very roasty, so not necessarily a beer for all.

Medium-bodied. Some carbonation can be felt at first. No real feel of alcohol. Not the most pleasant mouthfeel, yet it is quite alright.

For such a hoppy and bitter stout, this goes down very well. I would not call this a session stout, but this is certainly very drinkable nonetheless.
