On tap at the brewpub. Aroma: malty and roasty, with hints of chocolate. Taste/Palate: creamy and sweet; finishes slightly astringent. For a non-Imperial stout, this beer is absolutely perfect. JahNoth (1039) - Rochester, New York, USA - JUN 22, 2006
Mountainous cascade pour out of the bottle yields a rich and dense, light brown head. Aromas of slight char and bitter chocolate. Impenetrable black in color. Luscious and creamy in the mouth, nicely carbonated, then almost milky. Flavorwise, this beer delivers. Blackened malts interplaying with some fine hop bitterness, bittersweet chocolate along for the ride, and a sweet and chewy granola bar just for kicks. Some tang from the rye on the swallow. This is a great beverage. Thanks o Dubbercody for the pleasure. Cybercat (6143) - Georgia, USA - JUN 27, 2011
Comes out of the tap an opaque warm sable with a bubbly tan head like the fizz on freshly-poured cola. Rich aroma has strong molasses and mocha tones, and is somewhat sweet but not too sweet. Superb, smoky flavor has quality coffee, molasses, nutty and chocolate tones, and is very enjoyable. Thick, fairly fizzy texture has a powdery hint and leaves a fizzy, smoky finish.

Poured midnight black. Shiny, viscous with a very beautiful gray-brown head that clued me in that this would be a great beer. Full, smooth mouth feel with sweet, hoppy, yet incredibly well-balanced foreign styled stout. Syrupy, chocolatey, vanilla notes. A perfect desert beer great for baking and pairing.

650 ml bottle. Pours black with a medium dark tan head. Aroma of dark chocolate, roasted malt, and espresso. Smooth and full like dark milk chocolate. Malty with a bit of vanilla and caramel notes. Very nice.

UPDATED: OCT 21, 2009 22 oz bottle via Hagen. 20 minutes in the freezer for a temp of around 58f...Pours a near black with a large bubbly tan head that leaves quite quickly. Nose is simple roasted grains. Taste is espresso, chocolate, licorice. A very nice smooth roasty flavor with a semi-fry finish. Not chalky of ashy in the least. Body is medium. Perhaps the best foreign stout i have thus tasted. Fatehunter (2614) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - JUN 2, 2012
Poured into a pint glass; black with a thick inch of tan head.
Smells like chocolate, roasted malt and more chocolate. Great balance.
On the tongue: bitter chocolate, toasted malt, grippingly bitter with a caramel aftertaste.
Soft and creamy body with light carbonation... quite perfect.
Overall a simply amazing drink. Drinks like milk, only better for you.
