I had this on tap at Eli Cannon's in Middletown. It appeared a very dark black, but was lighter up close. The head was too thin and didn't stick around. The taste was excellent with (obviously) strong hints of chocolate and some coffee. It had some bitterness and finished smooth.

Poured from the bottle into a tall glass to drink. The beer had a dark brown-black color with a good-sized foamy and creamy off-white head with shorter retention, good cling and lacing. Its aroma featured chocolate malt, along with caramel and toffee a bit of coffee, and some earthy and grainy hops. The taste was somewhat sweet with chocolate and caramel but also had quite a bit of earthy and chocolate bitterness. It was a wet and somewhat watery beer with a full, wet mouthfeel and lots of carbonation and life.

Pours a nice thick black with a cocoa head. Aroma is of dark chocolate. Quite a disappointing taste though. Thick but lacking in much flavour.

Oh wow. Poured a nice thick creamy mocha coloured head. Very good lacing. Extremely dark brown appearance. Has aromas of roasted malts, dark coffee grinds, mints, toffee. Man! Nice assorted flavours, very chocolatey, also some coffee, vanilla, spices, caramel. Very much flavourful. Pretty smooth creamy mouthfeel as well. This is good stuff indeed!! Definitely gonna be picking this up again.

Bottle. Poured an opaque black with a tan head and nice lacing. Taste of chocolate, roasted dark malts and coffee. Lively carbonation, medium body. Fantastic stout!

Very solid choc stout - delivers decent hit of choc and as promised, not too sweet - disappeared all too quickly down my cake hole - not earth shaking but bloody good.

Väldigt mörk brun öl med krämig ljusbrun skumkrona. Doftar choklad, kaffe, malt. Smakar i samma bana och är riktigt bra tycker jag. Inte alls någon överdriven sötma och en precis lagom beska. Lättdrucken utan att det sticker åt något håll. Gillas verkligen!
