Thick motor oil black pour, not much head. Chocolate coffee aroma. Big chocolate coffee taste and very thick mouth feel with low carbonation. A little oily. Sticks to side of my glass. Pretty heavy so had to share the bottle. Some roastiness on the back. Good.

Bottle share. Aroma is coffee that leans towards licorice. Appearance is black with a tan head. Taste is dark and sweet with some licorice, molasses, and way dark malt with booze. Palate is dry and sweet darkness. Overall, a great stout. Bet it is fantastic barrel aged.

Bottle at Hophead22ís tasting a couple weeks ago. Pours pitch black with an impressively dark brown creamy head. Aroma is tonst of roasty coffee and some milk chocolate. Flavor is again abundant with roast, a strong bitterness but slightly sweet with a chocolatey mocha thing going on. Slightly tart. Thick on the tongue with silky smooth carbonation.

Draft at brewery. Pitch black pour. Bit more bitter than expected (possibly just the alcohol flavor? ). Otherwise, a tasty chocolate stout but seems overrated

Pours opaque black with a slender chocolate head from the 22oz. bottle: Nose has characters of malts, smoke, semi-sweet chocolate, molasses, toffee, and espresso. A roasted malt smack on the tounge. Lingering bitter cocoa powder flavors follow. Heavy and thick mouthfeel. Drinkability: Has the consistency of blackstrap molasses with flavors that sting as strong as espresso. The back of my throat is warming fast and Iím falling hard. Rebuy: Yes. #262 on 04022010, DG.
