This is a full-bodied stout with plenty of roast flavor as well as hints of molasses and chocolate. Ridiculous amounts of black and caramel malts make this stout smooth, creamy, and utterly opaque.

AbsoluterZero (11) - Wisconsin, USA - JUN 3, 2011
The nose is all about the bittersweet chocolate (with just a hint of burnt coffee). Based on this alone, I expected this stout to be a bit on the sweet side. I was quite wrong. It is surprisingly dry given the smell. Despite that, it tastes of a nice rich maltiness, chocolate, coffee, and a bit of a dark almost "woody" flavor. The pour is black with a dark tan head; the mouthfeel is unsurprisingly smooth with a nice thick body to it. Overall, itís a very good stout and worth buying again.

Pours a dark black with a nice creamy tan head that left some beautiful lacing around the glass. The aroma is chocolate, lots of coffee, medium to heavy roasted barley malts and brown bread. The flavor is more of the same. The mouthfeel is light to medium and drinkability is quite high.

phfyysik (1194) - Tartu, ESTONIA - APR 24, 2017
Pours black with medium beige head. Aroma is coffee, chocolate, cocoa, toast, some sweetness, caramel, creamy, bitter chocolate. Taste is creamy, some oils, toast, vanilla, chocolate, back bread, cocoa, strong coffee, some smoke, light liquorice, smooth, some milk and again, coffee. Dark chocolate and morning coffee beer! Too easy to drink. Superb!

Beerenberger (1605) - Fischer, Texas, USA - APR 24, 2017
Hint of chocolate in the aroma. A deep dark toasty brown color with a none lasting tan head. The taste is coffee and a hint of chocolate and hoppy finish. Medium light body - would have liked it to be thicker. Overall a very drinkable stout - would have preferred a thicker body. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours a very dark brown forming a substantial head. Smooth palate. Taste is lighter than I was expecting, but refreshing with very light coffee overtones. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

DonGregorio (270) - POLAND - APR 17, 2017
Bottle. Black colour, rocky beige head, good lacing. Aroma of roasted malts, coffee, a bit of licorice and chocolate. Taste is light sweet and medium to heavy bitter with notes of chocolate, licorice, coffee, heavy roasty. Roasty and ashy long bitter finish. Medium body and carbonation. Good stout, a bit too ashy.

KevinReddirt (128) - Midland, Texas, USA - APR 14, 2017
Bought as a stand-alone single at the nearby supermarket. I pour the bottle into a tall, handled beer glass. It delivers the anticipated ink black body along with a thin tan head. Not much foam but I do get some decent lace action. It has a strong black licorice nose leading to a fine charcoal opening taste. Malt, ash and burnt pecans follow continuing with a touch of bitterness. Straightforward enough for a stout, appealing to a developed taste. One is good, move on to something else.

Bottle from Belmont station Portland. Pours fairly flat with not really a lot of head at all. Tastes of light roasted coffe and toffee. Has some lingering smoke flavor. Itís ok.

fidgetymidget (209) - Warsaw, POLAND - APR 11, 2017
Aromat dosyć rozczarowujący. Głůwnie nuty kawowe. W smaku też dominuje kawa. Piwo jest dosyć wodniste i jednocześnie przesadnie wysycone. Od pierwszego łyku zalega niezbyt przyjemna goryczka. Z czasem w aromacie zaczyna wychodzić lukrecja, ale razem z nią delikatny diacetyl i trochę alkoholu. Spory zawůd.
