AWISLguy (1518) - Wisconsin, USA - DEC 30, 2012
Can from Brennan’s. Pours an opaque black with a brown head leaving nice drops of lacing. Aroma has cocoa powder, roasted malts, licorice and coffee. Taste is of sweet chocolate, roasted and burnt malts, some lactose and faint coffee with a tanginess. Smooth and dry. Finishes sweet with some bitterness, and a bit short. This is pretty good; smooth, tasty and an easy drinker.

Getbetter (915) - East Palo Alto, California, USA - FEB 6, 2015
From a can into a pint glass. The pour is a dark brown with light brown tint head. There’s a lot of chocolate notes with a medium to full body and a thick texture. I like it.

A nice stout overall. Pours a deep thick black with a thick tan head. Smells of cinnamon, vanilla and coffee. Taste is similar, lots of cinnamon, some vanilla throughout, and some slightly butter coffee in the finish. Had in the bottle.

Black body, big brown head. aroma has lots of molasses and roasted candy. Some tar. Flavour is nicely balanced and adds little acidic roastiness. Really nice and straightforward with good balance.

Solid stout. For the ABV level, it perhaps may be hard to do better. All the notes you love and expect are present.

weihenweizen (1943) - Charleston Area, West Virginia, USA - DEC 2, 2014
Refrigerated 12 oz. can, compliments of queenholly, poured into an English pint glass. Black with medium light brown head. Aroma is dark chocolate, medium body, medium carbonation, and good big-bubble lacing. Taste is strong roasted malt, coffee, some balancing grassy hops, and dry finish. Too dry for me, but queenholly with another state tick.

Pours black color with a reddish tint and a small beige head. Aroma has some burnt, almost charred sausage, hops, dark cocoa notes, ash, faint coffee too. Very dry palate. Good.
