onceblind (4014) - Denver, Colorado, USA - OCT 29, 2013
Deep black pour with a thin light beige head. The nose is of roasted black malts and a touch of smokey coffee. The taste is rich and deep with lots of chocolaty sweetness and a touch of smokey caramel, with some vanilla-ish coffee roastiness throughout. Nicely complex, even though it tastes like they were trying to be simple with it. A little light but nicely rounded.

Beerenberger (1430) - Fischer, Texas, USA - JUL 23, 2013
Aroma is malt forward. Pours a thick black with a robust, mostly diminishing tan head and minimal lacing. The taste is caramel and dark roasted malt with a slight grainy bitter finish. Medium-full body with medium carbonation. Overall, a nice stout by any measure. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Tap. Dark brown with small head. Dry stout with chocolate malt. A little thin on flavor. Bordering on sour, it’s so dry.

Pawola22 (3262) - Woodridge, Illinois, USA - JUN 17, 2012
On tap at the brewpub in Little Rock. Pours a black body with a finger-width, creamy, brown head that dissipates quickly and leaves a moderate lacing. Aroma is lighter with a thinned, medium sweet chocolate and a light roast backing. A bit of a lactose sweetness as well. Flavor is a little better. Thin chocolates with a medium sweetness and a touch of lactose up front before a light roast comes in. A light vanilla in the end before this finishes dry with a light bitterness and a thin sweetness. Fairly lengthy aftertaste following a light body and a medium-light carbonation. Overall, a decent tasting, but thinner stout. Eh.

decaturstevo (5002) - decatur, Tennessee, USA - FEB 20, 2012
Black pour with tan head and lace. Light toasted malt with a hinto chocolate. Sour toasted malt, coffee bitterness, followed by a medium malt and hop bitter as well. Thin and watery but really an ok beer,

csaso (1352) - Missouri, USA - AUG 23, 2011
Tap - small thick head, very dark brown practically black color, smooth texture with some chocolate flavors - not my favorite type of beer, but this one is not bad; no coffee taste, so that is a big plus for me

ben4321 (3864) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - JUN 20, 2011
Location: Draft at the Brewpub, 6/20/11

Aroma: The nose is roasty, some chocolate, and a little bit of burnt malts
Appearance: It pours dark brown with a small light brown head and no lace
Flavor: The taste is roasty and burnt, like the nose, with a chocolatey sweetness
Palate: The body is a touch on the watery side, smooth, and fairly creamy, with a rounded mouthfeel
Overall Impression: To prove that whole top rater of Little Rock thing was just a joke, if I was really trying to be the top rater of Little Rock, I would have tried all 3 of the beers they had, but I just tried the 2 on this trip (this one and the IPA). This one was a decent stout, but it was fairly one dimensional. Still though, it had some nice flavors.
