dark black, it’s creamy, chocolately. Yes sweet stout, and decidedly drinakble. Only 4.5% alcohol by weight makes it presentable at lunchtime.

On cask at the 2006 Atlanta Cask Ale Fest Very dark brown color with a small tan head. Big roasty aroma with coffee and some sweetness. Flavor starts sweet but watery. Light roast with a coffee finish. Body is thin and watery. hopdog (12953) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 17, 2006
On tap at the Disney World Boark Walk location. Poured a dark black with a smaller sized off white head. Aromas of chocolate and roasted malts. Tastes of roasted malts, coffee, and chocolate. Light bitter finish. My favorite out of the six beers I had there. 21iceman40 (1735) - Grafton, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 12, 2006
damn, i had this almost a yr ago but was too lazy to add it till now. Definetely one of the best of the sampler i enjoyed at the brewery. It was very black with some decent coffee hints. the body was decent, but a bit watery, just not bold enough to hang with the bigguns. decaturstevo (6343) - decatur, Tennessee, USA - JAN 28, 2006
Creamy light brown head that suits the dark almost black color that when held up to the light almost blocks out even direct light. I think with this beer I seemed to understand for the first time the roasted flavor that people talk about. This beer is an easy smooth drink without the big dog bite that my server and what i had heard built it up to be. The next time I go I will try it first and may end up re-rating it then.

Draught at the Charlotte, NC Rock Bottom location. Black opaque with bubbly brown head that laced the glass. Roasty chocolate nose with pleasant milk chocolate flavor with coffee undertones. Sweet throughout with smooth finish. Very good stout. Nuffield (4189) - Roseville, Minnesota, USA - JAN 9, 2006
Very dark brown, 90-95% opacity, some red, rich coffee-cream head. Very smooth, very dry, thorough roasted notes, dark, toasty, not burnt, little bitterness, light touch of vanilla. Exceptionally easy drinking. Not multi-layered for flavor but simple and enjoyable. (on tap, Rock Bottom Atlanta) NachlamSie (3534) - Denver, Colorado, USA - NOV 16, 2005
UPDATED: APR 29, 2008 on draught. Pours an opaque black with a picturesque, frothy tan head. There’s a fair amount of roasted aroma over the musty barley and a bit of sweet cream. The palate is silky but thick, and the flavor has ample truck-stop coffee and a thinner cream sweetness. The semi-dry dark chocolate finish pulls this stout together. It’s slightly thinner than I’d like for a stout to be and has a borderline English porter feel.

From a growler: This is a really good looking beer. It’s near black and has a creamy, even, long lasting dark tan head. The aroma is inviting with plenty of oats, chocolate, and an almost smoky bittersweetness. Palate on this one is nice and creamy with very low carbonation. I get hearty chocolate, medium roasted coffee, a bit of oats, and a nicely sharp finish. This is pretty enjoyable. I had no problem finishing the growler.
Draught (atlanta) nitro. Black body with tan head. Aroma is mocha, and very roasty. Oatmeal, and sweetness in flavor. Finishes with a weird tasting sugar flavor. KariCupcake (214) - Lenox, Massachusetts, USA - OCT 9, 2005
Nashville. The sout that bit back. It looks good, and smells good too, but it’s almost too much of a good thing.
