heemer77 (5325) - Urbandale, Iowa, USA - MAR 14, 2013
Bottle from the Black and Tan kit. A light brown sugar head tops a perfectly black colored body. A sweet molasses nose has notes of plums and yeasty raw dough. The flavors are like an ashy cheap tobacco along with notes of sweet tea. There is also a little bit of old green wood. The carbonation is light, yet somehow still sharp on the tongue. This is big glass of OK.

Aurelius (5174) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - APR 18, 2013
Soft, nutty roast aroma with ale overtones. Good packaging, inky beer, an almost purple tan head. Dry, lightly acidic roast flavor, slight nuttiness. Medium-light body, frothy mouthfeel. Sessionable, but it wont put hair on your chest. ABC, Betton.

nearbeer (5132) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - MAY 19, 2013
12 oz. Opaque with a covering of sticky foam. Mild nose of coffee, char, caramel and a dash of orange zest. Taste is caramel apple, sour berry, bittersweet chocolate, with a touch of char on the finish. Medium body is soft and well balanced, but is a tad too fizzy with medium-high carbonation.

Dark brown/ruby color with a small head. Light roast, some fruitiness in the aroma, maybe banana. Mild chocolate and roast flavor. A bit metallic.

hotstuff (4932) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - APR 17, 2014
Rated on 4-17-2014 (Bottle) This beer pours a large smooth tan head that mostly diminishes, mostly opaque dark brown with a red tint body and a fair amount of lacing. The aroma is roasted, dark malt, chocolate, light coffee, and a bit earthy. The taste is lightly bitter, roasted malt, chocolate, and earthy. The mouthfeel is clean and thin. This beer is light bodied. Overall, this is an easy drinking beer, but very thin and on the watery side.

chinchill (4601) - South Carolina, USA - MAR 31, 2013
The 12 oz bottle poured dark mahogany, looking near black in my snifter. The modest tan head soon reduces to a thin partial coat and a ring that leaves spotty lacing. The earthy aroma is mostly just from roasted grain, although there is a hint of hops. Taste: rather simple and mild, with minimal (for style) dark roasted grain but some earthy, peppery, and mildly bitter hops that lead to a fairly good finish and aftertaste. Mouthfeel: medium-thin body with relatively lively, medium carbonation and a slighly dry finish. Overall: a mild and simple but acceptable stout that is a bit weak on flavor,

Bulk_Carrier (4482) - Lake Champlain, Vermont, USA - JUN 14, 2014
Ive had this several times in my life and feel compelled to finally say something. Here goes. Always had in a pint glass. The appearance was a nice dark brown close to black sort of color. The head was a decent looking off-white color. There was a decent fading sort of lacing. The smell had a roasted almost burnt sort of caramel coming through exceptionally dry and toasted-like. The taste, well, its kinda roasty and burnt-like, its pretty dry - I can tell ya that. The palate sits about a light to medium in body with a fairly sessionable aspect to it. The carbonation seems to be fairly smooth. Overall, not a bad beer one bit, but not always one for me to come back to so quickly.

nick76 (4387) - Tampa, Florida, USA - JAN 16, 2013
The aroma is slightly burnt with hints of dirty water, coffee, chocolate, and molasses. The appearance is dark brown with a tan head. The taste is like the aroma. The palate is average. This might have been a decent stout but after the Big Eddy I just had it seems like cheap swill.

Blairgus (4369) - California, USA - JUN 2, 2013
2 June 2013, tap. Black with thin, creamy head. Nose is bitter dark chocolate, toast. Thin body and mildly fizzy, a bit creamy. Lots of bitter, dark chocolate. Not as balanced as Guinness. Still, it's decent. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

thegreenrooster (4183) - St.louis, Missouri, USA - MAY 1, 2013
Poor is a inky black with a small tan head. Aroma is actually a pretty decent roast with an ever so slight coffee. Flavor is much weaker. A very minor roast with some dirty malt and a bit of sourness. Probably should not get the low rating it has. Just slightly above par b/c of the nice aroma it gave off.
