Bottle. Pours a clear dark brown body with a small fizzy brown head. The nose is sweet chocolate with a little lactose and roast. The flavor is quite sweet with vanilla and lactose with lots of milk chocolate and roastiness. Medium bodied and slightly sticky with soft carbonation and a long lingering sweet finish. Enjoyable enough, but the sweetness does get to be a bit much by the end of the bottle. djd07 (16298) - Houston, Texas, USA - MAR 5, 2016
Bottle thanks to Will. Pours a very dark brown with small beige head that lasts. The aroma is raisin, roast, chocolate. Medium mouth, boozy, bready malt, light roast, good. CJack (52) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - FEB 27, 2016
Bottle pour, dark chocolate brown with decent tan head. Very light aroma, mild taste is sweet with some roasted malt bitterness. Not a lot going on, overall slightly disappointing :/

Opaque black with a one-finger tan head and moderate lace. Aromas of cocoa powder, carmelized sugar and alcohol. Milk chocolate and molasses sweetness with notes of coffee and bourbon. Medium body, slick mouthfeel, minimal carbonation and a boozy finish. BroSpud (2282) - , Massachusetts, USA - FEB 16, 2016
12oz bottle. Pours dark brown with a tan head. Slightly sweet with notes of caramel, vanilla and coffee. A bit thin on palate. It’s OK but not great.

Misc.: Best before April 4, 2016
Was looking for a porter, stout or imperial stout (etc.), to try and this one piqued my interest. Not the best reviews and the two beers I reviewed from them hasn’t necessarily been spectacular, but let’s go with it.
Poured a dark reddish, black color with 1-to-2 fingers of rocky, tan head. Minimal spots of lacing on the sides of the glass. Minimal retention. (Sight - 3.00)
Smelled milk chocolate, almost artificial like, wet cocoa, vanilla notes, some dark boozy malts, dark espresso, brownie mix and roasted dark malts. (Smell - 3.75)
Tasted artificial creamy milk chocolate, vanilla, wet cocoa, roasty malts, dark toffee, dark espresso and a touch of dark fruits. Very smooth for a 7.2 pct. ABV brew. Super artificial though. (Taste - 3.75)
Medium body. Creamy texture. Average carbonation. Long, smooth finish. (Feel - 3.75)
I feel like I slightly overrated this as a 3.75. I usually underrate, but a few things might have put this over tonight. (Overall - 3.75)
