Pours a deep black with no real head, though that head would be beige. Toasty roasty burnt aroma with some coffee and a bit of caramel. Taste is surprisingly citrusy. Toast and coffee flavors dominate the mid game with just a touch of sweetness. Kind of watery, though you could call it juicy thanks to the citrus notes.

Pours cola brown with nice khaki head. Strong coffee scent with bitter chocolate notes. Body on the light side of porter. Taste is strong coffee again with malts and chocolate as well. Smooth finish. A good but not great stout/porter. drpimento (3672) - La Crosse, Wisconsin, USA - APR 26, 2017
Pretty good stout. A touch too sweet for me personally, nevertheless solid. Good coffee and roastiness. vandc01 (422) - North Branch, USA - JAN 18, 2017
12oz can poured at home.
Can says it’s a black ale, ratebeer says it’s a stout - untapped says it’s a dark ale. Either way, it is a nice refreshing beer.

Can: Charred oak, tree bark, and baker’s chocolate aroma, not strong. Mahogany, thin tan head. Chocolate and raisin, strawberry accents. Medium body, moderate carbonation. I expected this to be fairly ordinary but it turned out to be really nice.

Body is lighter than a porter but the dark, slightly bitter chocolate aroma is more in line with a porter and an excellent indicator of the taste to come. Mildly sharp and sweet finish reflects its good overall balance. Poured from a can. JorgeLee (2134) - Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 24, 2016
Can in a Minneapolis restaurant. Darkish brown black colour, off white foam. Quite bitter, lots of black and chocolate malt, but also quite some hop with a slightly herbal and bitter note. A bit fizzy and somehow not that easy to get down. Just felt a bit almost there but not quite coming together. eruizgarcia (344) - - APR 29, 2016
Very attractive black pour with a luscious, full, creamy opaque head that looks like melted ice cream. Lots of roasted coffee, chocolate and malt. Super creamy palate and great lacing. Great beer!
