BMan1113VR (7914) - Los Angeles, California, USA - JUL 15, 2012
On tap at Societe. Pours with a pitch black hued body with a large and very retentive deep brown head. Glass coating. Aromas show a huge roast, nutty walnut, chocolate and coffee. Intense roast. Low esters, medium alcohol. Nice and bready malt character as well with a low earthy hop note. Flavors are roasty, lightly ashy and bitter. Dark/baker’s chocolate. Medium bitter, walnut. Rich and well balanced. Thick, full bodied, medium carbonation with well hidden alcohol. Wow!

corby112 (2716) - philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 14, 2015
Pitch black and opaque with a one finger dark mocha head that quickly settles into a thick, lasting ring. Streaks of soapy lace left behind. Nice roasted malt aroma with sweet chocolate notes. Well balanced with dark and milk chocolate notes, gourmet coffee bean and oatmeal countered by baker’s chocolate and dessert fudge/cake-like sweetness. Medium bodied and slightly viscous with a nice balance of deep roast and sweet malt notes. Burnt sugars, roasted coffee bean, oatmeal and dark chocolate countered by lactose cream, sweet bakers chocolate, fudge, dark chocolate cake, caramel and toffee. Nicely balanced. Really dry and slightly burnt up front but the lactose and sweeter malt notes come in on the back end balancing things out. ABV is invisible making this beer very easy to drink.

Delicious strong stout with coffee and cocoa notes. Not boozy, despite the high alcohol content. Unusual mouth feel

Draft at source. Deep black with coffee cream head. Nose of dried prunes, dark chocolate, vanilla. Bitter dark roasted malt with sweet finish and flavors following nose. Great example of the style.

laiti (7744) - Helsinki, FINLAND - AUG 24, 2015
Draught @ OBriens. Rated on 25.08.2015. Aroma is nice and sweet with lots of cocoa and some licorice. Also tobacco. Flavour has salty licorice, some ash, hints of tobacco and mild coffee tones. Finishes with slightly disturbing alcohol kick. Aroma was nice but flavour is a bit too salty.

tiong (5407) - Espoo, FINLAND - AUG 24, 2015
Draught @ O’Briens, San Diego, CA

Pours pitch black with a brown head. Aroma of roasty malts, licorice, coffee, dark chocolate, molasses and syrup. Taste is smooth, slightly sweetish and roasty with loads of licorice, coffee, dark chocolate, molasses and syrup. Finish is sweetish, heavy and roasty. A bit sweetish but otherwise quite balanced and tasty.

blipp (7361) - San Diego, California, USA - JUL 18, 2015
Draft. Pours near black with a tan head. Roasted and charred malts, light sweetness, faint fruity notes, and mild bitterness. Good stuff.

PartyFowle (734) - - MAY 20, 2015
Draft. Rich and thick as hell. Midnight black with a dense graham cracker head. Aromas of espresso with milk, cocoa powder, dark chocolate, dashes of vanilla and anise. Body is thick and soft as whipped cream. Gentle bubbles, big heat. Sharper notes of anise and molasses up front of flavor, along with hints of sourdough. The swallow hands over some sweetness to balance, in the form of smooth dark chocolate and roasted marshmallow. Big lingering caraway and black licorice. Very well done.

joeneugs (4593) - Livermore, California, USA - MAY 17, 2015
On tap at the brewery. It pours a dark brown/black color with a tan head. The aroma is rich and bready with some cocoa and a little green apple. The flavor is chocolaty and thick with a little alcohol and sweet apple. Very full bodied and rich with a smoky finish. Pretty ok.
