Can. Pitch black with a thin mocha head that dissipates quickly. Aroma is coffee and chocolate with some lactose. Taste adds roasted malt, nice hints of vanilla and some surprising citrusy hop notes at various points. Velvety palate with some subtle carbonation. This is an almost perfect prototype of the style.

From notes: growler from GAT Beer, NE Philadelphia. Poured opaque ink-black with a 3-finger dark tan head. Creamy and chocolatey aroma. Medium body, slightly oily. Roasty flavor up front that gives way to a chocolate note. The roasty note returns in the finish, with a bit of a cocoa note as well. puboflyons (3407) - Allenstown, New Hampshire, USA - DEC 18, 2013
From the can. It pours the color of oil with a small head that dissipates almost on contact. A bevy of aromas including roasted dark malts and vanilla bean with a burnt smoky quality top it. All very subtle but all very distinctive. Medium smooth body. The taste has is also quite roasty and toasty with a low bitterness finishing slightly dry. icehawk (834) - Mount Pleasant, South Carolina, USA - DEC 16, 2013

This one poured a dark brown with a beige head. Aroma was of coffee and vanilla, and roasted malt, very inviting. Flavor was similar, verty smooth and flavorful for a lower abv stouf. Probably one of the best i;ve had in a long time. Right up there with mean old tom.

UPDATED: DEC 10, 2013 From a 16 oz can shared at home. Pours a clear dark cola with a thin tan head. Coffee nose. Flavors of licorice and chocolate. Medium bodied, light carbonation, roasty finish. nsquishee (641) - Richfield, Minnesota, USA - DEC 6, 2013
A very delicious and smooth stout with lots of roasted chocolate malts that provide a sweet satisfaction. Flavors of chocolate, cocoa, vanilla, roasted malts, and rye bread. Very tasty. I bet this would be awesome in a beer float. Clarkdvm (509) - Florida, USA - DEC 6, 2013
Black pore from a can. Smooth chocolate. Beautiful stout. Aftertaste is not extreme. No complaints AndyW68 (1541) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - DEC 5, 2013
Looks like used motor oil with a nice khaki head. Aroma is mild, but had chocolate and fruit. Taste is roasted malt and chocolate. Nice creamy brew.
