Draft sampler at Capitol Hill location on July 11, 2009. Very dark black color that’s maybe a slight bit darker than this brewery’s Prohibition Porter, intense aroma that favors the alcohol, nice rich sweet flavor with good balancing bitterness and a licorice note. This was the best of the five beer sampler flight I had. ttroha (516) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - JAN 2, 2016

From notes - one of first beers I rated, not a good idea to pick such a strong style, may need to revisit it. Blairgus (4613) - California, USA - NOV 21, 2013
21 nov 2013, tap at Capitol City Brewing. Black. Nose is delicious sweet coffee aroma-coffee with demarara sugar. Full body, creamy, and mildly fizzy. Really tastes of sweetened, cold black coffee. Pretty tasty.

On draft at Capitol City Brewing Co. in Virginia.
The beer is dark brown, approaching black, with a finger’s width of beige head. The aroma brings coffee, chocolate, and roast, respectively. Nicely done. Coffee leads the way, though chocolate and roast notes are omnipresent. Medium bodied with appropriate carbonation. Alcohol is masked quite well by the bold coffee flavors. A solid beer. I would have this again.
Serving type: on-tap

On tap at brewpub. Pitch black with a short-lasting beige head. Tastes slightly roasted, coffee, milk chocolate and a touch of bourbon. Coffee bitterness and alcohol in the finish, notes of ash. Watery. Not a legendary imperial stout. Block (2894) - Indianapolis, Indiana, USA - SEP 6, 2011
I really enjoyed this stout. A black pour with a brown head. Strong aroma of chocolate, coffee and caramel. Medium-heavy body with lots of dark fruit and chocolate upfront then coffee and alcohol. Really good. anders37 (26845) - Malmö, SWEDEN - AUG 14, 2011
Draft @ the Capital Hill location. Pours a black color with a small off-white head. Has a roasted malty chocolate and coffee aroma. Roasted malty chocoalte and coffee flavor with weak hints of licorice. Has a roasted malty chocolate coffee finish. magsinva (1418) - Virginia, USA - MAY 14, 2011
Tap at the DC location - served in an overflowing goblet, khaki head and very dark. Assaults you with the coffee, but has a nice creamy mouth feel. Very drinkable.
