Draft at brewpub on 12/30/09. Pours deep brown, nearly opaque, with a bit of a ruby hue, capped with a few tan bubbles that ring the glass of the snifter. Aroma of roasted chocolate malt and coffee, with some hops playing a supporting role in the background. Burnt chocolate malt hits the palate first, and is accompanied by dark chocolate and espresso. Some dark fruit and molasses become evident toward the end, but fade as bitter dark chocolate clings to the palate for a lengthy finish. shp555 (2024) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - MAY 18, 2010

Very dark brown pour with a medium sized brown head. Really strong lacing. Aroma is roasted malts, with faint hints of chocolate and coffee. Flavor is really rich; sweet and desserty. Creamy mouthfeel and way too easy to drink for a beer approaching 10%. vtafro (7445) - Wayne, New Jersey, USA - APR 5, 2010

Jet black with tan head and lots of lacing. Malty, roasty nose, hint of alcohol. Rich roasty, malty and creamy texture. Alcohol presence not overwhelming but after a few sips, it seems everything is numbed by this big beer. Rciesla (5499) - Exit 15W, New Jersey, USA - FEB 28, 2010
Draft. Pours a black body with a tan head. Roast y burnt coffee and espresso notes. Sweet malty slick oily and light coffee beans. A mild oak and dark fruity body that gives way to a roasted chocolate toned malt body. Great stuff. alobar (3833) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 27, 2010

On tap at Capone’s. Decent stout with a nice chocolate aroma. Nothing really outstanding, just a good solid beer. egajdzis (6624) - Pennsburg, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 5, 2010
