"Firm body"...hardly. This stout was thin and left my mouth wanting more. Disappointing. Just okay.

DiarmaidBHK (3170) - Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 10, 2011
Fairly solid example of the style although the mouthfeel was a bit thin for my taste. Pours very dark brown with a finger of khaki head. Nice notes of roasted coffee on the nose. The taste is more of chocolate. It finishes clean.

biggcb (464) - Harleysville, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 23, 2009
On tap. Pours a dark brown with a very thin tan head. Aroma is heavily roasted malts, some dark chocolate and a little coffee. Flavor is much the same - on the bitter side. Somewhat dry. Standard stout - drinkable, but ordinary.

Miver (609) - Silver Spring, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 24, 2009
at brewpub for a beer dinner event. Poured black with a small tan head. Aroma of light coffee and chocolate. Taste of chocolate, light coffee, light citrus, (maybe even a little sour), light bodied and prickly on the tongue.

kramer (4690) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 28, 2009
On tap @ UBW. Pours a clear dark brown body with a small light brown nitro head. Nice coffee and roasty nose with a little nuttiness. Very dry roasty flavor, lots of black patent malt. Lingering burnt toast finish with light bitterness. Ususl thin nitro’d body, but the carbonation is actually a little prickly, the gas mix must be a little higher on the CO2 than most. Pretty good, if you’re into drier Stouts. Deceptive in its color, I thought that this was going to be lighter on the roast.

Chipper (302) - Red Lion, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 23, 2008
Draft at the brewery. Pretty dark color with a moderate tan head. Aroma of coffee, chocolate and malt. Flavor was a little odd, as it tasted like high quality weed. (Not that I have done that in many, many, years.) That dominated the flavor, but the coffee and chocolate came thought slightly.

(USA) Pours a dark brown almost black color with a med dissipating tan head. The aroma is of chocolate and coffee. The taste is much of the same with a hint of roasted malts. The palate is smooth and sweet. very nice !!!
