4.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
tap at Bierkraft - mahogany dark pour. Small tan head. Nose is rich malts and touch of espresso. Dark malts sweet decadent candy, toffee and brown sugar. Bubblegum note and chocolate chip cookie dough, milk chocolate shake. Roasty malts. Smooth, creamy body with the perfect level of carbonation. Sweet into the finish with a light piney finish. And a touch of astringency. Beautiful beer... itís like all my favorite stout qualities packed into one gem of a beer. And barely any perceptible alcohol in the taste. Watch out, beertopia, in Soviet Russia, beer drinks spider!

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from Brewtopia. Nose is a powdered chocolate and ovaltine with an underlying tar and tabacco. pour is pitch black with a medium brown head that dies and leaves a thin layer of bubbles on top. Taste is a sharp, bitter, almost burnt coffee that warms you up. Smooths out as it warms, but still is sharp and a little hot, like fusels and not just ethanol. leaves a stickiness on your lips but isnít overly sweet, probably due to the high bitterness. overall ok, but I would like to see this mellowed out.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle shared by alexsdad06. Poured a black color with an average frothy tan head that lasted with fair lacing. Moderate to heavy roasted coffee and chocolate aroma. Medium to heavy toasted dark chocolate malt flavor with a medium to heavy dark sweet and small alcohol bite finish of moderate duration. Medium to full body with a smooth texture and flat carbonation. This is a solid beer.

12 oz bottle from Nimbleprop. Pours dark brown to black in color with a medium sized khaki/tan head. The aroma and flavor have big roasted malts, dark Bakers chocolate, cocoa powder, a nutty character with some char and earthy bitterness to the finish. Lighter bodied than you would expect from 10%.

Pours an opaque darkness. Beautiful brown head. Nose is pretty boozy. Definite chocolate notes on the taste. Very malty. Roasty and just dark. Lives up to its name.

Growler from Premier Gourmet. Pours an ultra dark brown with modest-sized brown head. Aroma is full of roasted coffee and chocolate, with some nuttiness and a little dark fruit. Flavour is big roasty cocoa, coffee, hints of cherry and nuts. Body is medium-full. Slick mouthfeel. Nice.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Black with a fine-bubbled brown head. It tastes like a big porter w/ a good amount of roast and bitter, dark chocolate. This seems to drink way lighter than itís 10% ABV would have you think. This is really good but might disappoint some folks looking for a huge stout.
