On tap at First Draft, pours black with a small beige head. Aroma brings out hearty oats and some toasted malt. Flavour is similar, with rich oatmeal, medium roast and a touch of dark cocoa. Hearty and well-balanced. Very good. djd07 (15356) - Houston, Texas, USA - OCT 6, 2016

On tap at the brewery. Pour is Pitch black with a frothy brown head and sticky lacing. Big roasty aroma - cocoa nibs, coffee, some vanilla, brown sugar, and toffee. Taste is fresh coffee, cocoa nibs, light vanilla, earthy, toasted bread, and coconut with a lightly bitter finish. Full mouthfeel with medium carbonation. Really tasty - I cannot believe this is only 4.9%. onceblind (10341) - Denver, Colorado, USA - NOV 26, 2015
6100th rating, and well deserved to be this beer at this brewery. Black pour with a thin light tan head. Lovely nose with coffee and roasted black malts, and a bit of cocoa creamy sweetness. Smooth flavor of the same notes; lots of sweet cocoa, earthy roast, a bit of coffee, smooth deep darkness with a nice sweet backbone to it--with coffee. Lovely. Smooth. notalush (5910) - Lakewood, Colorado, USA - NOV 21, 2015
Taster at the brewery - well-executed sweet stout with more heft and warmth than one might expect from the abv - notes of dark chocolate, espresso, light smoke, vanilla, and mild spiciness - bittersweet finish - not overly roasty or astringent - good.
