radio_nowhere (1472) - Maryland, USA - JAN 11, 2014
Draft at BJís in Frederick, MD; served in a tulip glass. Very dark brown color with dark tan head. Aroma of roasted malt and chocolate. Taste adds notes of light coffee, sugar, caramel and some fruity esters. Medium-heavy body, low carbonation, dry, semi-creamy with slight bitter roast finish. For a RIS somewhat thin and sweet, overall decent dessert beer that night.

TBone (17429) - Pori, FINLAND - FEB 22, 2017
Tap at BJís, Austin. Dark opaque, good creamy brownish head. Very light toasted aroma. Medium-bodied, smooth. Coffeish, toasty malty flavor. Easy but clean mouthfeel. Impy for beginners.

Nitro. Pours black with a creamy tan head. Malty with an earth hop aroma. Flavor is a sweet caramel malt with milk chocolate with some mineral notes and an earthy hop finish. Creamy mouth feel.

asheft (3062) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 1, 2017
On tap BJís, JAX. Chalky vanilla roast barley aroma with a little dark chocolate. Opaque black with hazy garnet highlights under a lasting, ruddy beige nitro head. Sweet vanilla flavour with faint red fruit accents and a dark chocolate finish. Overly sweet and with barely any bitterness to balance. Medium light body, smooth, low carbonation.

hershiser2 (2984) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - NOV 12, 2016
Tap at Charlottesville location. This is an imperial stout? Pours not quite black - definitely can see through it. No smell. Taste is... somewhat unpleasant. Liquor, some chocolate, some coffee. A little sweet.

jsporrer (982) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 6, 2016
On tap @ BJís Restaurant & Brewhouse. Pours a dark brown with a thick creamy tan head. Thick and creamy body. Lightly bitter malt flavor. Nothing special. Not that enjoyable.

koleminer20 (3463) - Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA - SEP 29, 2016
On nitro at BJís in Covina. Thanks work. The pour is a typical nitro pour but as it recedes it gets light and more of a ruby tinted dark brown. Thick khaki colored head and good lace. The aroma is heavy on the malt. There is a light sweetness to it and a bit of metallic to take it out. There is a decent amount of alcohol here. The flavor is not that great. There is a bright alcohol up front l followed by a bitter roast and a lingeringly sweet chocolate malt. Itís definitely not really what I was hoping for. The mouth feel is thin and watery with a light carbonation and a lingeringly metallic chocolate aftertaste. This could be a lot better.

r464 (2359) - Earth, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 3, 2016
Very dark with a nitro tan head. Creamy and full, char and roasted malt, a good bit of cocoa, and some coffee. Fairly heavy body, one to drink slowly.

4.2
MarkSachon (1010) - Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 15, 2016
Draft in a flight at BJís in the North Hills of Pittsburgh. Probably a lot better than the low ratings indicate, and was really pretty good, especiallypaired with the All Night Burger.
