Pours a black color with a brown head. Aroma is malt, roast, toffee, and some plum. Flavor is plum, roast, toffee, and a roasty finish. CaptainCougar (7634) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - DEC 16, 2007
On tap at the brewpub on 10/14/07: Pours a mostly opaque black with dark brown edges and a stringy-lacing dark tan head. Semi-sweet dark chocolate nose has a lot of roasted maltiness and some doughiness. Body has pretty good malty sweetness and viscosity with some dark caramel and chocolate flavors along with a touch of dark fruits. A very nice sweet stout. goldtwins (4319) - Nesconset, New York, USA - NOV 1, 2007
I guess I could have entered something special for 3000 but poor planning on my part. Tap @ CooperSmiths: Poured black with a long lasting creamy tan head. The aroma was roasty and ashey. Some chocolate but not too much. The flavor had a chocolate start with some roasted malt and dark fruits poking into the middle. Some tartness. Dry roasty bitter finish. Creamy light body. Nitro pour. kp (10880) - Woodstock, Georgia, USA - OCT 21, 2007

UPDATED: FEB 19, 2009 On tap at Coopersmiths Pub. Looked beautiful, with an opaque black color and a creamy tan head that left great lacing. Initial slightly bitter taste is followed by notes of roasted malts and a hint of coffee flavor. Feels excellent on the palate, and is very drinkable.

On tap at the brewpub. Pours black with a creamy thick dark beige head that just won’t quit. Smooth perfect palate. Delicious licorice and roasted coffee flavors. Incredibly silky and smooth. The carbonation levels are very low. You coulod drink a bathtub full of this in one sitting. bigcat03 (340) - Columbus, Nebraska, USA - JAN 6, 2007

dark brown almost pitch black with a coffee tinted gray head. roast in the nose with light coffee. a tad hidden bit of chocolate. watery body with a nice coffee & cocoa with a smooth acorn note. a nice stout. finished with nothing, but makes me happy. coffee comes out late in this. harlequinn (2744) - Tacoma, Washington, USA - JUL 4, 2006
This is just velvety smooth all the way around. Aroma of cold coffee, and chocolate covered caramel dominates the flavor. Creamy and smooth and just what I was looking for in a stout.
