Almost jet black beer with a frothy, tan head. Strong aromas of dark coffee and licorice. Tastes of dark licorice, charred coffee, some dark chocolate, earthy notes, and finishes with a grainy booze flavor. Warming mouth feel. Nice balance of sweet and roast. Really powerful and tasty.

Opaque inky black color with a thin head of light brown foam. Rich and smooth barrel aged stout that carries its weight in ABV well. Mellow rich chocolate and rye whiskey finish. A good sipper. 9er (100) - Maryland, USA - JUL 28, 2017
Toasty malt and roasted raisins dominate here. Some chocolate and molasses with a bit of piney esters. Mild semi sweet stout and brewed well.

The aroma is malt, some chocolate, licorice, coffee. Pours dark brown with tan head mostly diminishing and excellent lacing. The taste is bitter then sweet. The body is full, the texture creamy, the carbonation lively and the finish long. VERY GOOD!!! DCLawyer (2914) - Falls Church, Virginia, USA - JUN 21, 2017

Bottle - pours opaque black, elusive team head. Aroma is coffee, whiskey, lactose, charred wood. Mouthfeel is uncomfortably slick at times for me. Flavor is coffee, cocoa, phenols, raisin. Strange bitterness towards the end. Not terrible but I’m disappointed. MaBeer1972 (2185) - Reno, Nevada, USA - JUN 6, 2016
Bottle from Muckey’s. Poured into a tulip. Frothy tan head quickly fades to a medium lace. Deep coffee and chocolate malts with notable sweet oak. Vanilla, pepper and earthy raisiny sweetness.
