Not usually a fan if stouts but this one I really like. Really chocolatey and burnt coffee tasting. Pours nice and dark an goes down smooth. All stout drinkers need to try this one. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Opaque black with a bubbly brown head, streaks of lace.Taste begins with a clean toasted malt that swallows as easily as water. Deep in the palate, black coffee and a touch of chocolate assert themselves, lingering bitterly through the finish. Begins like a good British stout, finishes like an American flavored stout. Recommended.

Molasses colored beer with brownish root beer style head. Rich nose with hints of chocolate and black licorice accompanied by roasted accents. Taste is slightly sweet up front and then builds in bitterness with underlying flavors of coffee and brown sugar. There’s a lot going on here. A good stout, definitely one to savor.

Cans can be good for beer, but they don’t look as sexy as bottles. Fortunately for Zonker it looks plenty good when poured. Super dark, big frothy head that slowly fades down to a thin tan cap. Overwhelming chocolate aroma when poured balances as hthe beet its for a bit with more of a ’beer’ scent. Definately easy to drink, but does have a slightly longer after taste than I might like.
