Fairly dark, about a finger of cream colored head. Smells of brown sugar, caramel, vanilla. Creamy taste with a roasted hop sweet, booze is apparent. A dark coffee bitter after taste, maybe some burnt brown sugar. Decent overall. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Poured almost black in color with a tall foamy brown head. The head becomes creamier as it reduces slowly. There was a mild chocolate aroma, with a hint of anise. There was a light thick and creamy texture to the beer. There was a good dark chocolate flavor, smooth with a nice sweetness developing up front. A light bitterness comes along in the middle, with more of a coffee flavor and a sense of some alcohol. The finish is mild with a nice lingering flavor of dark chocolate and an alcohol warmth. The head left a nice bit of lacing through the glass. The aroma was a bit subdued, but other than that a very enjoyable and easy drinking.

Pour is an oily black wit ha small tan head, maybe half a finger thick. Nose is of coffee and some roasty malt scents. Taste is similar to the nose, dominated by the taste of burnt coffee. Light on the tongue for 8%, but still nothing special, taste if quite bitter.

Sweet stout with coffee,soy sauce, smoke, nuts, roasted malt and a hint of vanilla. Pretty good but I think it’s a little overpriced for the quality you get.

Pretty good for Schlafly! Very malty, dry in the palate as it should be. Dark molasses, chocolate, roasted coffee. Some dark fruit flavor too.

Aroma of chocolate/coffee. Pours black with a nice tan head. Tastes like chocolate and coffee with a little bitterness. Nice.

alcaponejunior (438) - Texas, USA - MAY 13, 2012
Inky black with a one finger head that didn’t last but left great lacing and a film of head along the sides of the glass. Roasted caramel malts and dark fruits dominate the smell. Tastes of dark roasted malts with the usual suspects of chocolate and a touch of coffee, plus a notable hops bitterness. Overall flavor is strong and packs quite an alcohol punch. Feels full and slightly oily on the tongue, fair carbonation and a lingering bitterness. Alcohol warming. Within the style it’s pretty drinkable, but not something I’d want to drink every day.

Jabic (431) - Brigantine, New Jersey, USA - JAN 26, 2013
Ar: Very faint hint of coffee, a bit of mossy hops - some clean alcohol. Ap: Black, opaque - large tan head with good retention and a thick cap of fine-bubbled lacing. T: Rich caramel and coffee, moderately sweet - high bitterness, herbal - chocolate and caramel, rich malt flavor - clean alcohol warmth. P: Medium-full body with high carbonation - rounded palate - finish is medium-dry. O: Very nice extra stout - robust, with a firm bitterness and a nice amount of sweetness that brings out a lot of the rich and roast flavors.

My first sip of this ended in me smiling from ear to ear...with the exception of the year round staple oatmeal stout, I really dig all schlafly stouts, but this may be the best of them. Very roasty and big yet drinkable. I look forward to drinking this again next year.

Malt character closer to imperial stout, than a dry stout. Great flavor with pronounced tones of chocolate and coffee. Slightly bitter aftertaste. Great beer.
