Pours black with thin brown head. Nose is heavy roasted grains, earthy hops, hints of coffee and smoke. Flavor is roasted grain, burnt bread, fresh coffee, mild smokiness, earthy hops. Very nice beer. You can easily put back a ton of this beer. Love it. PartyFowle (954) - - APR 23, 2015
Draft. Black with a creamy tan head. Aroma is sourdough, molasses, dry brownies, a little light roast coffee. Solid nose. Flavor is very light, again with the toasted sourdough and chocolate crumbles before an incredibly dry finish. The very subtle flavor isn’t helped by a slick, watery body, which I found a little odd for a nitro stout. RickTheRick (949) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 30, 2016
** Servie au nitro ** Une tête de mousse très crémeuse et persistante se dresse sur une bière d’un noir sans équivoque. Il est assez difficile de déceler quoi que ce soit au nez, étrangement, même en y plongeant le pif. Je finis par renifler quelques traces chocolatées et de café. Grâce au service au nitro, la bière est évidemment ultra nuageuse en bouche et les saveurs de chocolat et grain rôti sont bien propagées. La finale est plutôt sèche, ce qui contribue grandement à sa buvabilité. Simple, mais très efficace. ExpendableHero (925) - Florida, USA - MAR 13, 2011
Solid brew. Pours black with a brown, frothy head. Aromas of coffee, dark chocolate, and caramel. Tastes of dark, bitter chocolate, rich black coffee, licorice, and some caramel. A bit smoky, and chalky. Dry, pleasant finish. Tastes like a super Guinness, and that is a very good thing. Delicious beer. hivemind (919) - New York, New York, USA - NOV 19, 2012

On tap at CCB. It was a hot day and this poured a nice clear deep dark brown with tan frothy head. Aroma was coffee and cream. A bit dry on the palate but still enough sweetness to make it go down well and quick. This was very yummy! 48FanInCali (851) - California, USA - APR 11, 2011
Poured from a fliptop bottle. Very high notes of coffee. Taste was bitter up front but clean and dry on the finish. jhliesen (833) - West Melbourne, Florida, USA - MAR 24, 2016
Deep brown color with a medium tan head. Aroma of malt and some roast, but not much. Roasted malt taste, similar to a Guinness but tastes fresher and less blunt. A touch of bitterness in the finish. Not complicated, but really well done. On tap at Broken Barrel.

Pours opaque brown with a medium tan head. Aroma is molasses, heavy malts, carob, and a little coffee. Taste is well balanced with coffee & milk chocolate with a malty, bitter finish. murphym45 (769) - New York, New York, USA - MAR 29, 2011
Tap at RNH. Aroma is lots of roasted malt, a bit of smoke. Dry and roasty, bitter chocolate, a bit of caramel, finishes smoky. A very solid dry stout.
