Elwood (3336) - Leesburg, Virginia, USA - MAR 22, 2009
Draft. Pours a pitch black with a nice, creamy tan head. The head is slow to fade leaving behind excellent lacing. Coffee, caramel, and vanilla are present in the nose. Low carbonation and a very creamy mouthfeel. A bit of dryness as expected for the style. Coffee and a bite of bittersweet chocolate on the palate. The coffee taste lingers awhile. The body is a little too watery in my opinion.

Nice dry stout, clean yeast, well attenuated, light chocolate and a touch of cola. Medium/light body is soft with light carbonation. Nice stuff.

MadRobin (2814) - Silver Spring, Alabama, USA - APR 16, 2012
On tap at Sweetwater Tavern in Centreville, VA. Opaque, deep ruddy brown, near black with fair lacing. Aroma of slightly smokey, roasted malt and coffee. Taste is dry, slightly bitter roasted malt and coffee flavor. Slightly lighter than medium body with high carbonation. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Volgon (2763) - Manchester, New Hampshire, USA - OCT 8, 2002
On tap GABF ’02: Black/ruby color with a small but firm head. huge lovely toasted, roasted aroma. Then when I drank it, the beer fell apart. Weak watery body, light unpleasing taste.

illinismitty (2270) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - OCT 23, 2008
Draft at Centreville. Pours a dark brown with a head that diminishes to a wisp. Aroma of dark roasted malts. Flavor of molasses and dark roast with an average attenuation. Semi dry finish with some huskiness.

scraff (2121) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - MAR 19, 2008
Dark brownish black, thin creamy tan head. Soft roasty chocolate nose with hints of burnt toast and coffee. Flavor is more of the same with light chocolate and coffee tones rounding to a faint hop bitterness. Light bodied and tad thin, soft carbonation, dry, bittersweet finish. Decent...

jeffc666 (1984) - Fairfax, Virginia, USA - MAR 9, 2004
Opaque black with ruby edges. Small frothy tan head. Aroma is roasted malt, nutty with a bit of cocoa. The flavor is much more assertive than the aroma, lots of roasted malt with coffee and nuttiness playing the predominate parts. The body is medium and dry. A decent dry stout.

Dark, when helf at an angle a bit of red light shows through. Nose roasty and a bit fruity. Roasty and bitter, some coffee and burnt wood.

kathouse (1626) - Nevada, USA - SEP 16, 2004
A deep, dark brown with thin tan foam. Smells of roasted malts and toffee. Nice roasted flavor balanced by a medium bitterness and a long aftertaste. Surprised by a thin mouthfell and low carbonation. Could have rated higher.

jasonp (1573) - Ashburn, Virginia, USA - OCT 24, 2004
Pours black with a small, quickly fading brown head. Aroma is lightly roasty, that's about it. Taste is moderately sweet with notes of roasted malt, coffee and some chocolate. Slightly burnt and bitter aftertaste, dry finish. Mouthfeel is full and round. Solid, but not really memorable.
