On tap at Uno’s Hamilton during Philly Beer Week. Rich smooth creamy and a nice mellow roast. Not sure if it was strong enough to qualify for the Big Wood Event, but I guess one of them had to be below 11% LOL nuplastikk (6414) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 10, 2013
Tap at Sugar Maple. Smooth oaky chocolate aroma. Rich cocoa tones. Relatively mild ABV really helps the malt shine. Luscious, rich, malty. Really well executed and enjoyable. Sort of a one-dimensional cocoa stout, in that it doesn’t have much hop character, but still good. troopie (2408) - Munchen an der Willamette, Oregon, USA - MAY 5, 2013
Draught. Pours black with thick off white head. Chocolate and oak in aroma. Oaky flavour with a rich malt character. Chocolatish finish TheHopster (1111) - Netcong, New Jersey, USA - APR 30, 2013
On draft at Salt Gastropub, Byram. Rich earthy roasted malt and oak flavors. A decent winter stout. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone burg326 (5594) - Florida, USA - APR 26, 2013
Poured a dark brown color with aromas of chocolate, light vanilla, and some earth. Flavors were the same. Had this in bottle as well as on nitro, on nitro it had a light creaminess to it, a nice beer overall.

on nitro. beautiful cascading red brown brick color. aroma is heavily malty with some cocoa. palate is lighter than expected. very nice. Aholmb1 (134) - New Orleans, Louisiana, USA - APR 25, 2013
Appearance: the head is extremely nice on this beer, very dense and in tact, does not dissolve quickly, the beer is completely opaque, dark brown roasty color Aroma: chocolate, roasty, earthy, slightly faint Taste: roasted chocolate malt flavor is very present, earthy and oaky, the oak aged taste is definitely coming through, no overwhelming flavors, slight bitterness, heavier beer Palette: bitter on tongue, mid to heavy body Overall: winter beer, the beer could have a bit more flavor, definitely drinkable and easy to to drink ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone DuffMan (10596) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - APR 24, 2013
On tap @ Radio Maria. Nitro creates a thick beige foam pad atop a near black body. Faint aroma of sweet roast. Creamy, roasty palate with notes of coffee, vanilla, chocolate. Mildly bitter finish, creamy mouthfeel. Very good. Joelly3d (48) - Kentucky, USA - APR 24, 2013
Very light tasting actually. It tastes like a less impactful/alcohol imperial stout. Smoother than heavier imp stouts and easier to drink. If you were to water down something like a wake up dead, it would get you here. It's still quite good, just not amazing or all that unique.

From tasting notes. Pours almost black with a small brown head. Aromas of roasted malts, caramel, chocolate, light wood and a hint of vanilla. Flavors of roasted malts, caramel, coffee, light chocolate, vanilla and a hint of wood. Stronger wood notes in the finish.
