PorterPounder (7762) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - OCT 15, 2011
Tallahassee, Fl - Liquor Loft - 11.16 oz bottle. Pours a very dark brown with a sticky khaki colored head that leaves nice lacing. Aroma of fresh brewed coffee and dark chocolate. Bold rich flavor with licorice, creosote, espresso and just a hint of black dirt. Mouthfeel is thick and rich. Excellent stout.

drowland (8462) - Georgia, USA - OCT 8, 2011
10/9/11. Bottle. Black pour, moreso dark brown under the light, with a small tan head that fades and doesnt lace at all. Somewhat one-dimensional aroma of coffee, butterscotch, and tar. Over the top roasted coffee bitterness - intensely bitter and dark... its like licking realllllly burnt toast or something... lingers bitter on the palate for ages. Jesus.

daknole (10936) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - SEP 19, 2011
Black color. Odd toasty aroma and some vegetal notes. Rough flavor. Bitter, medicinal. Not very good.

jonno (2681) - JAPAN - SEP 13, 2011
An odd one. Nose is wonderfully burnt and roasty - very impish. In the mouth the burnt flavour almost tastes off. Body is a tad oily and light for the style. The odd taste takes away from what no doubt could be a very solid stout.

Braudog (6579) - Yorktown, Virginia, USA - SEP 8, 2011
Bottle. A head of tight bubbles tops the black beer. The aroma hints at a rich, sweet brew, and it absolutely delivers. Full of chocolate, chocolate and more chocolate ... capped off with a nice natural, java-laden bitterness.(#4240, 9/8/2011)

Butters (4058) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - AUG 29, 2011
UPDATED: DEC 31, 2011 Good very dark brown pour with ring of light brown head. Smells nutty and roasty, but flavor has more of the coffee. Sweet vanilla notes at first. Suprisingly good, but it does have a lingering coffee grounds bitterness on the finish. Does a damn good job of hiding the abv though. Second bottle must be fresher. Has a much more pronounced coffee aroma. And almost hints of chilis. Not my style, but damn good for what it is.

Benzai (15092) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - AUG 15, 2011
UPDATED: DEC 23, 2014 Original rating: 6-4-7-3-14=3.4. Clear dark brown / red color, beige head. Smell almost just coffee. Taste coffee and a little bitter. Soft taste for beer of 10%ABV. Nice beer. -- Re-rate December 23rd 2014: Bottle @ Van Moll Brewpub. Opaque black color, medium sized brown head that lasts for a decent while. Aroma is malts, brown malts, lightly coffee, less than I had expected. Taste malts, nicely bitter, but again less coffee and espresso than I had expected and more dark malts. The espresso is there but not as profoundly as I had expected and hoped. Nice though.
