Bottle shared with koleminer20. Aroma is nice roasted malt, milk chocolate, oatmeal. Appearance is black, poured viscous, light brown head. Taste is smooth, roasted malt, candy, chocolate, oats, a little light though. Mouthfeel is much the same, good but not great carbonation, a lightness in the feel, yet thick in itís own way. Overall, itís an impressive offering but I expected more from TG. Itís the curse of greatness.

22 oz bottle from Al! The pour is a viscous oily black with a minimal ring of medium khaki head and no lacing. The aroma is roasty and oaty. There is an excellent chocolate in there and a little sweetness. The flavor is really roasty and chocolatey. There isn't much complexity there, but this is an excellent light stout. The roasted malts carry it well. The mouth feel is lighter than I wanted it to be. There is a soft carbonation, but it does come off watery. The aftertaste is lingeringly roasty with some light bitter chocolate. Good stout. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Draft in Lakeland, fl. Looks and smells like a chocolate stout. Flavor is slight coffee, moderate cocoa, no bitters- quite good. Got better farther down the glass which is rare these days

Pour is jet black with a caramel colored head that lingers for quite a bit of time. Nose is extremely heavy on the roast, a touch of dry chalky chocolate, notes of toffee. Taste is a little more balanced, not quite as roasty, still a fair bit of roasted malt, more light dry chocolate, a bit of sweet malt. Medium to full body with moderate carb and a slightly bitter finish. Flavor is much more balanced than the nose, fairly enjoyable albeit not great.

22 oz bottle shared by a kind soul at Chickow day. Pours dark brown to black in color with a medium sized tan head. The aroma and flavor have nice roasted malt, almond nutty character, dark chocolate, nice creamy mouthfeel, solid drinking stout.

Bottle. Dark brown pour with a kaki head. Mild caramel and roasted malt aromas. Smooth with dark roasted malt and caramel highlights. Good body and mouthfeel.
