bytemesis (2568) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - MAY 31, 2012
Bottle. Pours opaque black with a small brown head that dissipates quickly. Strong aroma of coffee and heavily roasted malt. Taste mimics nose, but with a moderately bitter finish. A bit watery on the palate.

SamGamgee (2452) - down the whirlpool, California, USA - APR 17, 2009
UPDATED: FEB 17, 2010 22oz bottle. Very dark brown with barely transparent edges and a lasting tan head of good size. The aroma is an almost awkward mix if oats, deeply roasted to almost burnt malt, and hops. The roasty, oaty, and hoppy combination works a bit better in the flavor. Things start of with some bitter chocolate and end with a firm hoppy bitterness. There is also a mineral quality. Relatively robust with creamy carbonation. Alright, but erring a little to hard and bitter for a sweet stout. The malt is there, but this seems to follow the SC Ale works model of high hop bitterness, and it holds the balance back here. (6,4,7,4,12)<br/
rerate: On tap this was much smoother with a richer malt character and less chalky body. Nicely balanced and robust stout.

beersearcher (2295) - Glendale, California, USA - DEC 30, 2010
pours a jet black. aroma has a roasted quality to it but it is a mild hit. the flavors continue the roasty notes which then fades into a bit of BBQ flavor before finishing a little burnt to my taste buds. also is a bit thin. did not get into this one.

On tap at the Parish Publick House. Amazing cascading carbonation. Dark brown with red hues, light beige foam, lots of lacing. Powdery chocolate aroma with some roasted malt. Flavor is roasted with semisweet chocolate and a dry, burnt coffee finish. A little too watery overall.

MadRobin (1693) - Silver Spring, USA - MAY 1, 2012
On tap at Whale City Bakery Bar & Grill in Davenport, CA. Opaque, black brown with fine, creamy tan head and excellent lacing. Aroma of toasted coffee, chocolate and dark, smoky malt. Taste sweet, toasted dark malt and coffee. Medium to light body with ample carbonation and a creamy, foamy mouthfeel. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Beardface (1517) - Eugene, Oregon, USA - AUG 7, 2009
Bomber from Market of Choice. Pours a dark ass black with a thick, bubbly tan head. Aroma is redolent with chocolate and some roastiness. Flavor is also hefty chocolate, light roast and some mild coffee. Palate is very thin, but that’s relatively typical for the style. Solid offering, no regrets here.
