From the bottle, pours black with a thick brown foamy head that turns a creamy white. Thick and smooth with favors of milk chocolate, cream, a light bitterness at the end. Surprised by this one, it’s a quality beer.

Deeep Black, nice dark tan head,tons of carbonation....nose is a strong berry, expected more coffee and chocolate....you get this in the taste.....Cola, Chocolate, licorice, coffee- creamy smooth, but dry...strong, but not overbearing in anyway, alcohol is nicely hidden, sweet with a bitter hint after....I really enjoyed this beer. Definitely one I’ll keep on hand.

This beer pours black with a substantial tan head, and the aroma is very malty with hints of nuts, caramel, and toast. When sipped, this beer is slightly bitter and sweet, but the heartiness is undeniable; furthermore, the body is of a medium fullness, and the flat carbonation, thick texture, and bitter aftertaste leave you wanting to sip more.

Schlafly has a lot of styles, but this is the first one from them I’ve really loved. Pours dark and smells sweet and malty, very rich earthy taste and that strange, borderline oily mouthfeel you get from stouts. This is one I could enjoy regularly.

The 12 oz bottle was courtesy of Strykzone. I poured jet black a very robust and attractive tan head with moderate lacing. Nose of toasted malts and chocolate. Rich bold body and a smooth creamy mouthfeel. The flavor is rich and in addition to chocolate I get some licorice. Light bitterness in the finish. This is a very nice stout, easy to drink,. and I feel fortunate to have gotten to try this one thanks to Strykzone.

Pours reddish brown black with tan head. The smell is smooth and mellow for being dark. The taste opens up immediately with sweet light roast and a big fruitiness, cherries and apples and figs with a great chocolaty finish. This was better than I even expected although it does get very dry and grainy a it warms losing its smooth palate.

12oz to pint has a small creamy cap revealing sumptuous dark brown underlying fill. Color preludes mochachino aroma that advances into taste. Nice balanced body with continued complexity and light bitterment towards end. A stout worth talking about.

Well there is no need to ever buy Guinness in St. Louis again. Dark pour with a thin dark carbonated tan head. Coffee chocolate and some fruit in the nose. Taste is the same, and very smooth. 8% alcohol is well hidden. Great beer from a brewery that has been slowly winning me over.
