An excellent stout. Full balanced flavor, a touch of sweetness, extremely smooth. Shag (3001) - Chattanooga, Tennessee, USA - APR 10, 2003
Poured black with a large head, aroma was faint but good. Flavor was a good balanced stout, a hint of sweetness but mostly bitterness. A good dark chocolate taste. Malt and hops blend perfectly. Smooth but not watery. Excellent stout. hopscotch (11113) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - JAN 3, 2004
This beer rocks! Pours as black as used motor oil. Medium-sized, creamy, beige head. Great retention and thick, creamy lacing.
Brown tea, charred wood, dark chocolate and cola in the aroma.
Very well-bittered to balance out the deeply roasted, chocolatey, full malt. Also, astringent with notes of charcoal.
Medium-bodied with a creamy mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Lengthy, burnt, crisp, dry finish. World class beer! freekyp (2257) - Thomasville, North Carolina, USA - MAY 10, 2007
Awesome towering tan head and opaque black body with a thic chocolatey aroma. Chewy and oily on the tongue with a coating chocolate sweetness throughtout, mitigated by a late bitter coffee finish. Nice roastiness settles on the tongue for a long drawn out finish. nathan30533 (1020) - Clifton, Ohio, USA - MAR 20, 2011
Smells like a tootsie roll. darker head and good lacing. Finishes chocolate. Good overall.

3 oz. Pour. Midnight black with a cocoa head. Huge espresso flavor with a sweetness to the finish. belgianhomebrew (646) - Acworth, Georgia, USA - SEP 1, 2002
Good roasted aroma. Lots of chocolate malt in there. A very smooth stout. Suttree (6392) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - JUN 3, 2002
Very heavy, very fresh stout. Tasted at the Chattanooga Big River. boto (2214) - Granby, Connecticut, USA - JAN 3, 2003
Roasty, chocolate taste. Extremely dark. Very smooth and creamy. Excellent! Aurelius (5335) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - JAN 26, 2003
Pitch black, but clear with thin camel head. Like drinking a latte -- very, very smooth stout with low carbonation. Lots of chocolate and lactose flavors. Medium finish and creamy mouthfeel. This is very impressive without being terribly complex. This started out with damn good malt and didn't overdo the dark, patent malts.
