maxwelldeux (3069) - Everett, Washington, USA - OCT 21, 2012
How am I the first to rate this?!? Anyway, bottle. Pours a very dark brown (almost black) with a moderate, though quickly disappearing, head. Some nice roasted flavors to the nose. Just a little bit of sweetness to the taste, but some nice roasting to the taste as well. Happy to drink this one.

12 oz. bottle from Plaza Liquors - Pours a dark brown color with a one finger thick tan head. Light lacing. Aroma and flavor is roasted malt, coffee, and chocolate. Finish is slightly dry and bitter, but smooth and not too astringent. Medium to full body. A real nice beer.

SphinxTX (2876) - Mata Gorda, Texas, USA - DEC 26, 2012
Bottle. Pours black with rich tan head. Aroma of dark roasted grain, dark chocolate. Flavor has same notes with a lightly sweet maltiness, nice light smokiness and finishes bittersweet. Heavy mouth feel with medium carbonation. Overall, good stuff! Very nicely priced!!!! $4.99 for a 22 oz.

AirForceHops (2711) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - FEB 9, 2013
12 oz. can purchased at @ Nikkiís Liquors, Providence, R.I. for $2.59. Stamp says bottled on 12 September 2012. Guinness pint glass shows a black liquid with a quickly disappearing tan head that leaves nothing in its wake. Nose is roasted barley, chocolate and light pine hops. Where is the sweet lactose or sweet sugar? I was expecting roasted malts and coffee sweetness somewhere. It tastes more like a weak Black IPA. Thinner body with a slight pine finish. When I open a sweet stout, thatís what I want to drink. Complete false advertising here. The rating reflects that fact.

jake65 (2532) - Williston, North Dakota, USA - DEC 28, 2012
Bottle: Very dark brown pour, darker tan head. Soft aroma of dark chocolate and roast. Same traits in the taste... silky mouthful. A little espresso. Really smooth and seamless from roast to cocoa.

beersearcher (2295) - Glendale, California, USA - DEC 30, 2012
Pours a jet black with a latte head. Very pretty. A touch of sweetness along with a good hit of roast coffee bitterness. In the end it smooths out though. Lovely beer.

Draft. Pretty decent brew. Very smooth but not super sweet like I was expection. Iím not usually a huge fan of Widmer, but this one is very well done.
