Butters (3812) - 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!

jebert (500) - Watertown, Wisconsin, USA - APR 19, 2013
Pours an opaque ebony with a medium sized dark tan head. Nose is malt and coffee. Nice and creamy on the palate, the taste is full of dark roasted slightly burnt malt, coffee, and a hint of hops on the finish. Quality beer with lots of complexity. Try it with pretzels and a mustard dip.

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.

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.

Reid (1938) - Salem, Oregon, USA - NOV 22, 2012
12 oz single from Roth’s Sunnyslope Market, Salem Oregon. $1.89 Black body with a quarter inch sized creamy tan head. Creamy milk aromas over burnt oat notes..with some treacle thrown in. Taste is very cream like..with nice dark fruitiness and molasses and slight pipe tobacco..very nice. Nice feel in the mouth its not as thick as anticipated but still holds together. Very nice tasty stout here.

slowrunner77 (6031) - Reno, Nevada, USA - SEP 17, 2014
"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."

NikkTwist (1708) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 25, 2012
UPDATED: MAR 26, 2013 Draft at Moriartys. Is this new? Not expecting to find a brand new beer here. But anyways ... Opaque brown pour with a nice pillowy brown head that died to a light foam after 5 minutes. Dark vanilla nutty aroma. Tasting black coffee. Chestnuts. Vanilla Tootsie Rolls. Some creamy elements bring some fullness but the darker notes provide most of the flavor. Semi-sweet chocolate. Charcoal. Burnt marshmallows. Creamy middle but a slightly bitter finish - not in a bad way. If the finish were sweet one would get sick of this quickly but the bitter finish proves oddly thirst quenching, so one keeps on keeping on. Feels like a Milk Stout but without the bloated feeling. Someone thought this brew through and I appreciate it.

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.
