Hanuta06 (347) - Washington, USA - JUL 6, 2013
Serving: from bottle--purchased at Full Throttle Bottles. Aroma: light chocolate aroma. Appearance: large, rocky, light-brown, initial head with mostly diminishing longevity and very good lacing. Dark-brown/black body. Taste: moderately chocolatey initial taste and dark-roasted, moderately bitter finish with long duration. Palate: full bodied with oily texture and lively carbonation. Overall: very good. Lots of flavor. I’d like to try this again.

"I miss the old Widmer winter seasonal, snow plow (kinda sorta a 5% version of this beer). The alcohol makes the body a little more robust but not quite as epically smooth as the old Standby. Milk chocolate and roast abound, though, and for $5, a good deal too."

FROTHINGSLOSH (5045) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 8, 2014
From the April 2014 3R6P gathering. +++ Sampled from a 22 oz brown bottle this beer poured a black color with a medium sized foamy brown head that left decent lacing. The aroma was lactose, a hint of vanilla and toasty malts. The flavor was bitter vanilla, lactose, roasty malts and floral hops. Medium length bitter finish of vanilla and lactose. Medium body. Meh.

Not much for aroma here other than typical stout notes. Flavor has a bit of bitterness instead of sweetness. It does have some smoothness to the mouthfeel.

DocLock (8016) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 13, 2013
Bomber from Wegman’s. Pours jet black, thick, with a 2-finger frothy dark brown head. Nose is a nice medley of roasted dark malts, cacao, mild dark fruit. Tastes roasty, with big dark malt flavor up front, some cacao, earthy woody notes at mid-palate, and mild hops and figgy fruit late. The mouthfeel on this is dense and complex, with a very smooth finish. This one would pair well with any red meat or chocolate dessert.

Bottle. Overall very nice stout, lots of coffee and chocolate flavors, roasted aroma, full body. A little sweet, would definitely do again.

jbruner (2424) - Athens, Georgia, USA - AUG 14, 2013
Pours a thick black on tap with nice tab head and good lacing. Sons of coffee and roasted malts with a slight lactose sweetness. Taste is bitter coffee with a hint of toasted toffee and a silky finish. Nicely done.

Butters (3817) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - JUL 22, 2013
Very dark brown pour with good dark tan head. Nice roasty cocoa pervades the senses. And it seems real, not fake or medicinal. Soft vanilla notes. Creamy and Silky smooth on the tongue. VERY pleasantly surprised with this one!
