Tmoney99 (11065) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - NOV 1, 2010
Draft sample at KBJ2010. Poured brownish black color with an average creamy light brown head that mostly lasted with excellent lacing. Moderate toasted malt and coffee aroma. Medium to full body with a smooth texture and flat carbonation. Medium to heavy toasted bittersweet flavor with a medium to heavy bittersweet finish of moderate to long duration. My expectations where met.

Suttree (5256) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - FEB 13, 2005
Black, with a thick, creamy, brown head (with a little nitro help, I think). Burnt toast aroma, with a faint whiff of chocolate. Smoky and smooth, with notes of hickory and coffee. Finishes with a nice dark chocolate flavor.

decaturstevo (5213) - decatur, Tennessee, USA - APR 20, 2006
Draught at Calhouns on the hill in Knoxville, Another pleasant surprise from this brewery. A rich creamy head with a coffee/chocolate flavor that was a total pleasure a very good stout. If they could make this baby with a higher abv it would be world class in my book.

JaBier (4995) - Capital City, Ohio, USA - APR 4, 2012
Pint at one of the Calhoun’s locations. Pitch black pour with a huge tan nitro head. Malty and chocolatey aroma with some roast. Chocolate and creamy sweet malt flavor with a dry, roasty coffee finish. What a dry stout should be. Best beer I had from them.

Aurelius (4359) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - JUN 28, 2002
Not much aroma. Pitch black, of course, with little tan laced head. Thin. Lots of cocoa, but very little bittering. Smooth but disappointing.

Butters (3844) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - SEP 6, 2009
On draft at the brewpub in farragut. Pours a midnight black with great solid brown head and spiderweb lacing. Nitro diminishes the aroma a bit, but the flavor is roasty chocolatey, and lightly bitter coffee. Great creamy silky body. Coffee finish. Very good
