Very sweet and grainy---with little roast aroma or flavor. Hop bitterness also missing. Larry_Duffman (581) - - SEP 16, 2017
I had it from the bottle. The taste is nutty, caramel, roasted coffee, and chocolate. There's a nice sweetness and bitterness balance. This is good. sdhunter (10) - - JUL 13, 2017
Ok beer. Dark. Gives the appearance of a stout. Trader Joe's brew. Not bad, but better choices.

Thick head that dissipates quickly. Nose is molasses with sweet dark fruits. Not much character in terms of flavor. rumproasts (5573) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - FEB 11, 2017
Bottle. Very deep brown with one finger head. Strong roasted malt. Nutty and dry. Slightly bitter finish.

Pour is a big black with a tan head. Mild coffee, toffee and bread smells. Taste is similar, not too strong or anything, but no real depth to it bdleedahl (594) - , Saskatchewan, CANADA - OCT 14, 2016
Nothing wrong with this beer. Well brewed and a great example of the style I think. It is how they say.. "Deep nutty flavour". Berkeley Trader Joea

12oz bottle pours dark brown with a lasting light beige head. Aroma is roast, milk chocolate, toffee. Flavor is medium sweet, yielding to only slight bitterness. Chocolatey. Medium-bodied with a smooth, slick feel. Decent. bergstaden (3156) - Røros, NORWAY - JUN 15, 2016

Bottle pour into nonic pint glass from Trader Joe’s. Aroma is strong roasted malts, bordering on burnt, with notes of chocolate. Appearance is clear, dark brown with reddish tinge, fair sparkle, finger-width foamy beige head with fair retention and minimal lacing. Taste is mainly sweet roasted malt, toffee with hint of hazelnut and ash; mild bitter balance. Palate is medium bodied with creamy texture, average carbonation and dry finish. Overall, some decent complexity for a not-so-complex style. Better than expected and at a great price.
