gdubu493 (60) - New Jersey, USA - DEC 15, 2013
Poured a bottle into a glass on 12/15/13. Purchased bottle from Quench Beer in Silver Spring, MD (solid, small craft beer selection). Foam head was about 4 inches, piss poor pour, but 4 friggin inches...? Aroma starts with a bitter nose. Light chocolate, coffee tones. Incredible dark brown, almost black appearance. Consistency of the beer as it’s poured appears to be thin. Taste is dry, lightly tightens up your mouth like you’re drinking a cheap wine. Palate confirms what the pour predicted, tastes thin and not what one would expect from a stout. Taste continues with light, bittersweet chocolate and weak coffee. Overall, jrodoo5 said it best, " It’s just uninteresting to me. It’s ok and drinkable but I want more than that in a stout!" Agreed.

Bottle. It poured a black color with a tan head. The aroma was of coffee, roasted malts and some cocoa. The taste was similar to the aroma with more coffee, malts and chocolate. Not bad.

veceo (1152) - CROATIA - AUG 22, 2015
Dark brown color, nice tan head. Pleasant roasty aroma, lots of chocolate and coffee, also some dark fruits. Taste is surprisingly tasty with coffee, milk chocolate and roasted malt being most dominant. Medium body, soft carbonation. Well, surprisingly awesome easy going stout.

Cunningham (6659) - Halden, NORWAY - AUG 14, 2015
Almost black color with a fine beige head. Coffee, chocolate and fruity aroma. Well I think a lot of adjective will fit for this one. Tad sweet flavor with coffee, some roasted malt, light fruity and some chocolate. Decent nice stout.

Black brown pour with tan head and lace. Aroma is light coffee and a touch of chocolate. A decent malt bitter. Medium bodied and fizzy. A little weak on flavor and body but still ok.
