COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
SEDUCTIVELY SMOOTH Our brewers have poured their hearts and roasted malts into this rich, slightly sweet stout. Luscious notes of coffee and chocolate accent the smooth, creamy mouth feel. We will not apologize for any amorous affairs resulting from the consumption of this beverage

katrinaez (1086) - norristown, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 21, 2016
On nitro, so lots of head. Slightly sour malt and barley aroma. Dark black body. Extremely smooth and bitter taste, slightly oaky. Creamy mouthfeel. Exactly what a nitro should be. Tap.

Spindelphia (13) - Lambertville, New Jersey, USA - MAY 18, 2016
A very fine stout. Not an Imperial or double or foreign or any other adjective, just a mighty fine Stout. Creamy head, perfect blend of nice dark coffee and chocolate tastes.

Bottle from Perfect Pour. Dark, toasty oak body with thick tan head. Nose is sweet, chocolate, caramel. Taste is oaky, roasty, malts. Smooth texture. Lots of ash in there. Not so great. Where’s the love?

b3shine (7737) - Indiana, USA - FEB 9, 2016
Bottle to pint (thanks Kerry). Looks good; a lightly translucent dark brownish cola with foamy beige head that slowly but steadily dissipates into lacing. Smells of dark malt and chocolate alongside mild notes of roast and a touch of sweetness. Tastes like it smells, but not as robust, with a medium-light to medium-bodied mouthfeel that’s on the drier side for not being a dry stout. Solid and sessionable.

Roasted chocolate malt aroma. Pours black with a tan head. Opaque. Mostly roast flavors. Some sweet, but it’s not overwhelming or complex Has a light acid background flavor. Thin bodied.

skmikeg (1646) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 21, 2015
Pours black with brown edges, with a one finger tan head which quickly fades to very little lacing. Aroma is of roasted malts, coffee, chocolate, sweet malts, caramel, molasses, and some light burnt notes. Taste is similar to the aroma minus the burnt notes and with some added light fruitiness. Has a medium body with a semi creamy mouthfeel and a mostly sweet, medium finish. Overall, a decently tasty, easy drinking stout that is pretty sessionable for the style

Dacrza (784) - Great Meadows, New Jersey, USA - NOV 12, 2015
DATE TASTED: November 12, 2015 ... GLASSWARE: Guinness pint... OCCASION: a rainy night looking forward to Friday... APPEARANCE: dark black body, as expected; brow, fraying head settles thickly, exhibiting creaminess and consistency... AROMA: chocolate and coffee immediately, as promised; some nuttiness in the malts, but the sweetness and toasted promise is clear and present--a pleasure to inhale... PALATE: creamy early, somewhat smooth in its middle, and lingering in its warmth late... a bit heavy and flat at the finish as well... TASTE: a silky sweetness begins the profile, and its toastiness is palpable but dry; peaty notes make for a rounded, relaxed flavor overall... OVERALL: a stout with little to complain about...actually, flip that--a stout with a lot going for it, and prop to Yards for getting it right...phenolic fragrance detracts slightly from the experience but overall, a solid styling...
