Ratman197 (9444) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - AUG 4, 2008
Bomber poured a nearly opaque dark brown almost black with a lasting brown head. Aromas of bitter chocolate, coffee, light vanilla and hints of licorice and smoke. Palate was medium to full bodied and smooth with slightly warm finish. Flavors of bitter chocolate, light coffee, light vanilla and a hint of pepper with a smooth lightly warming lingering bittersweet finish.

BeerandBlues2 (9356) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - NOV 30, 2008
Bottle. Pours black with a small, frothy, dark brown head, mostly diminishing with spare lacing. Aroma is heavy malt (molasses, chocolate, toffee), heavy hops (flowers, perfume, pine), average yeast (leather) with notes of raisin, plum, smoke, tar, and vanilla. Full bodied, oily texture, lively carbonation, and a bitter finish. Long duration, heavy sweetness and bitterness, moderate acidity.

DJMonarch (9158) - Northwich, Cheshire, ENGLAND - AUG 24, 2009
From the Jug at the GABF Colorado Convention Center, Denver 10/10/2008 Roast aroma. Beige head. Black strong in alcohol and rich on the palate with a crisp and bitter lasting chocolate roast finish.

FatPhil (8995) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - OCT 21, 2011
Tap (Rake, post-RBESG2011 Monday)
Lovely rich cakey aroma. Very smooth roasty palate, much like a US porter. A touch buttery in the finish. Very rich and roasty, but no burnt astringency. A lovely bitter bite and tingle, but not really hoppy. The immediate finish the instant you swallow is just gorgeous - it feels great, and the vapours moving around the back of the nose make you go "goddam!".

daknole (8851) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - AUG 15, 2008
Well I had to go to Vermont to find this in the bottle at a local shop in Stowe. Rating #600. This is a kick ass beer. Pours a jet black with a nice foamy brown head. Aroma is(shocking)all chocolate. I also smell a hint of coffee and maybe some molasses. Taste is dark chocolate, dried dark fruit, coffee and some molasses hints on the nose too. I truly enjoyed this from start to finish.

hopscotch (8776) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - SEP 22, 2008
UPDATED: SEP 30, 2008 Bottle… Post RBSG ’08 O-Town/Vero Beach Throwdown Chapter 8… Pours pitch black with a mid-sized, creamy, beige head. Good retention. Simple, straight-forward aroma and flavor… dark, bitter chocolate nibs and cocoa powder. Full-bodied and lightly creamy with moderate carbonation. Chocolaty, bitter finish. Thanks to growler for sharing the bottle!

22oz bottle. Poured a dark black color with an averaged sized tan head. Aromas of chocolate, cocoa, espresso, roast, caramel, light smoke, and vanilla. Tastes of roast, some oats, bitter chocolate, coffee latte, and roast. Smooth body with the alcohol content well hidden.

maeib (8574) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - AUG 13, 2008
Cask conditioned - gravity dospense - GBBF 2008. A dark, dark brown beer with some chocolate and alcohol in the thinner than expected aroma. The taste is full bodied boozy alcohol, chocolate and hops. Very tasty, and very American.

A great stout, thanks Radek Kliber. Good looks and lacey. Good aroma, a little ourness and hops. Balance in the taste, a sipper, a good bitterness. I will try this with friends again soon.
