Ratman197 (12540) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - SEP 10, 2012
Bottle poured a clear dark reddish brown with a lasting creamy tan head. Aromas of dark candy sugar, toffee, tobacco, earthiness, light fruittiness and a hint of spice. Palate was medium bodied and crisp. Flavors of toffee, tobacco, earthiness and fruittiness with a crisp lingering tobacco finish.

Bottle acquired as part of a holiday care package from an aunt. Consumed in a pint glass. Aroma reminds me of alcohol-filled chocolates with sweetness definitely running the show. Black in color with a full figured beige head. Lacing sticks around to see how the sip continues. Taste is very heavy on bitter, dark chocolate initially before softening as more of a milk chocolate stout at the finish. I’m also getting some dark fruit like raisin and a little bit of peat. Hard to miss the alcohol presence too. I think if you like a chocolate-forward stout effort you’ll be satisfied but it’s not really overwhelmingly impressive for me. One bottle was definitely enough.

330 ml bottle. Black body with a big gushing tan head. Mild fruity aroma with coffee and toffee. Flavor has dark malt, mild roast, some fruit and moderate bitterness. Medium body and OK aftertaste. Quite decent, but feels a bit plain and straight forward.

ForlornHope (337) - Hampshire, ENGLAND - FEB 28, 2016
Bottle at home. Almost black, small tan head. Aroma of roast malt and jam. Quite sweet palate, some balancing bitterness. Fruit tastes, sweet and slightly sticky palate. Some milk chocolate notes. Overall not bad, a little too sweet for me.

Manslow (969) - Warsaw, POLAND - FEB 26, 2016
Butelka 0,33l kolor prawie czarny, piana ładna drobnopęcherzykowa, jasnobrązowa ale zbyt szybko znika zostawiając nikłe ślady na szkle. Aromat likieru i lekko kwiatowy, w smaku kwaskowe niestety co dodrego stouta nie czyni. Aromat jeszcze orzechy.

unclemike (2812) - Ft. Riley, Kansas, USA - FEB 2, 2016
Pours black with a big fluffy powder like beige head. The aroma is chocolate, dark ripe fruits, spices and has a tart side note. The flavour is dark fruity with lighter notes of roasted malt and chocolate. Some bitter acidic yeasty notes in the finish.

Oscbert (1210) - Sacramento, California, USA - JAN 23, 2016
Sweet bready malty aroma, chocolate, licorice, light roast. Pours a very dark brown almost black with small wispy off white head Flavor starts subtle then goes into oak and licorice, some roast, bready. Medium heavy bodied with high co2, interesting mouthfeel, fluffy and chalky, almost makes me want to chew on it or smash with my tongue, some alcohol warmth, lingering dry oaky finish. I've never had a beer similar to this, which makes me like it. Not really complex. Well balanced, awesome mouthfeel. Surprising that it's 9% abv ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
