Pours jet black with a thin brown head, mild malt aroma. Very smooth, strong flavours of coffee, slightly sweet with a mild bitter aftertaste. I like it a lot

Pours a dark brown with a dark khaki head. Aromas of chocolate and coffee. With a slight vanilla aroma. Taste of chocolate and slight smokeyness. Medium mouth feel. Overall very nice beer especially for the price.

On tap, Luppolo12, Rome. Black, small beige head. Aroma caramel, malt. Relatively lighter body for a stout. Taste coffee, chicory. Highly drinkable. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Dacrza (533) - Great Meadows, New Jersey, USA - NOV 22, 2014
DATE TASTED: November 5, 2014... GLASSWARE: Guinness pint... OCCASION: Teacher Convention weekend begins... APPEARANCE: jet black body; thick, creamy head; thick brown coating as the glass drains; a tragedy, as the glass drains... AROMA: intriguing grainy notes with a lactic quality framing them; some chocolate and bread round out the profile... PALATE: creamy yet strong in its backbone; smooth, medium-bodied and drinkable....TASTE: intense, sweet, milky flavor that also presents some briny qualities; secondary hints of chocolate and some smoke make for a complex finish... OVERALL: a completely wonderful drinking experience--hearty, hardy and warming with an excellent edge...worth the price, though? not far off...

Keg at Rogue, PDX, 12/11/14. Last beer in OR on this trip! Dark mahogany brown with a decent light tan covering that retains well. Nose is roast malt, toffee, light cocoa, grain, vanilla. Taste comprises chocolate, light roast, light metallic notes. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, light roast in a semi drying close with hoppy backnotes. Ok stout but really struggling to see why this beer carries a score of 3.86 !!!

Bottle at home. Black with a thin tan head. Rich chocolate malt with a nutty taste. Perfect sweet bitter balance and long finish. Lovely.

This is an absolutely beautiful beer, with a dark brown color and a creamy head. I found this to be a very pleasant and easy to drink beer.

Let’s start with this: this beer is not my favorite if we are talking stout in here. The beer is pitch black with medium carbonation/medium head. The aroma is on the milk chocolate side without the buttery factor that usualy indicates that you’re about to dive into a rich beer. In fact this beer has a very light body to it and you can’t feel the 6% ABV at all. Very well balanced, but yet to light for me palate.

From the bottle. Pours very dark brown, some head with lacing. Smells of sour, chocolate, molasses. Taste is creamy with notes of chocolate and molasses. Finishes a little sour, lingering aftertaste. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Malty with subtle hoppy flavor. Notes of coffee and dark chocolate. Full taste without being really heavy. Makes a perfect birthday gift from your favorite red head. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
