Initial aroma of milk chocolate(!) Pours dark with a thick tan head that fades fast. But the initial taste has a taste of bitter chocolate with layers of flavor. Smooth and crisp.

p2oz bottle, Pours dark black with a light tan head, decent lacing. Aroma is slightly sweet cocoa malt. Taste is roasted chocolate malts and toffee, and some chocolate malts coming through. For a stout it is on the thin and watery side, but still, this brew is a good tasting beer that is worth the try.

12 oz. bottle from the Party Source. All this time in Ohio and I’m just now getting around to this one. Worst label ever? Pours a deep brownish amber with a small beige head. Aroma of leaves, chocolate, toast, nuts, brown sugar, and cardboard. Flavor of chocolate, nuts, toast, tobacco, earth, and grass. Light-bodied, with moderate carbonation and a dry mouthfeel. Easy to drink but not memorable.

Draft to taster at Dutch’s. Looks solid; cola with foamy light beige lacing. Smells of dark malt, dark chocolate, and roast. Tastes like it smells with an average mouthfeel. Not bad.
