A black pour with dark red edges and a tan head. The aroma is mildly sweet with just a hint of roasted chocolate. The light to medium body has a oily texture with average carbonation. The taste is sweet, but there is a faint roasted coffee taste that develops late in the finish. ChainGangGuy (4930) - Woodstock, Georgia, USA - JAN 12, 2011
Appearance: Pours out a black body with an expansive, light beige head that soon settles into a scant layering.

Smell: Malty albeit mild nose, nothing particularly effusive here, but smelling of semi-sweet chocolate, sugary caramel, weak coffee, and an opened box of Sun-Maid raisins.
Taste: Sweetly toned tastes of both chocolate and caramel maltiness rounded out with roasted grains and a quick swig of instant coffee. Small, muted hint of licorice. Raisiny fruitiness. Essentially no real, appreciable hop character or bitterness, leaving it to maintain its sweetness throughout. Light flavor of roasted barley on the sweetish finish.
Mouthfeel: Medium-light body. Medium carbonation.
Drinkability: A bit underwhelming, as nothing from the aroma to the flavor really grabs you. A simple, sweet stout, landing pretty light when it comes to overall taste, hop character, and body.
Deep brown. Aroma of dark malts, light meaty note, caramel, chocolate. Touch of sweetness and malty on palate. Decent. thirdeye11 (6162) - Dallas, Texas, USA - DEC 31, 2010
(12oz bottle thanks to blutt59) espresso/ruby pour with few tan bubbles. Nose of sweet chocolate, raisin, chocolate chips and cocoa. Started out well, but it didn’t taste like it smells. Taste is highly metallic, cocoa, and raisins. FunkyBrewster (1518) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - DEC 28, 2010
12 oz bottle. Pours a deep brown with a small creamy light mocha head. Aroma is mostly chocolate with just a touch of roast. Super sweet, almost like milk chocolate candy bar and caramel. Flavor starts sweet and slightly promising but picks up some unpleasant stale candy and old sugary caramel notes that just don’t fit. Not nearly enough roast and complexity beyond chocolate. Mediumish body and a higher carbonation. Meh

Dark brown color/ fleeting head. Acetone, chocolate, roasty aromas. medium bodied. Decent mild chocolate, dark roast, malty flavors, medium bitter finish. GMUcrew7 (577) - Mason, Ohio, USA - DEC 4, 2010
Dark pour with a tan head. Roasted malt aroma, a little bit of hops. Sweet and smoky body, starts out with a milky sweetness, followed by a nice roasty flavor. Body is a little light, not a great stout, but another decent beer at a good price from Dundee. markwise (5450) - North of Tampa, Florida, USA - DEC 4, 2010
12 oz bottle from Publix. Pours dark stout brown with a tan head. Nose is faint: chocolate, malt, roast, and some molasses. Flavor is about the same. Not a lot going on here. SphinxTX (2878) - Mata Gorda, Texas, USA - DEC 1, 2010
Bottle. Pours dark brown black with tan head. Aroma has notes of dark roast grain and dark chocolate and a alcohol pepperiness. Flavor has notes of chocolate, dark roast grain and light malt. Mouth feel is medium body but watery with high carbonation. Overall, easy drinking brew. bu11zeye (13215) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - NOV 30, 2010
(12oz bottle, courtesy of blutt59) Pours a mahogany body with a small beige head. Aroma of light roasted grain, raisins, and light cocoa. Flavor of chocolate, roasted malt, caramel, light coffee, and raisins.
