From bottle at Sam’s Cafe in Tiburon. Light chocolate, coffee, licorice, and burnt-roasted malts. Mild hop character and a little tang. Dark brown-black with thin tan head. Medium body with medium carbonation. Starts dry with roasted malt and light burnt character. Carbonic and sugar tang with mealy-meaty soy finish. Nutty mild sweet after.

Aroma is rich dark roasted malt with hints of coffee and chocolate. Pours dark velvet black with rapidly dissipating dark tan head and no lacing. The taste richly robust! Roasted malts, with hints of coffee, chocolate, dark fruit. The taste is on the front side with nothing bit velvet on the backside. Full body with soft carbonation. Smooth mouthfeel. Overall, a great stout. Thanks for sharing, Ken

Very good natural coffee flavors. Another winner from Firestone. Used to be called Velvet Merkin. One can understand the name change. Imperial_Scout (363) - Illinois, USA - MAR 23, 2013
Pours dark with creamy mocha scent. Malts in the nose. Roasty malt taste but lighter than what I am used to. To be honest, I had this later in an evening of beer tasting after some heavier stouts and it feels like I should have started with this. A decent stout but there are better out there. sodakotakid (230) - Belle Fourche, South Dakota, USA - MAR 21, 2013
pours black with a minimal brown head. This beer tastes of dark roasted chocolate and roasted coffee, it is slightly sweet followed by a tiny bit of bitterness!

Bottle. The look is dark, black in color, and has a slight tan head. The smell is malty, roasty, chocolate, dry, nutty, cocoa, and coffee. The taste is roasty, sweet, malt, oats, and chocolate. Mora2000 (6158) - McKinney, Texas, USA - MAR 20, 2013
On tap at the Common Table. Dark brown with a brown head. I get a lot of chocolate and light coffee notes in the aroma and flavor, as well as some roasted malt and some oats. Medium to thick mouthfeel and medium carbonation. A very nice low-alcohol stout. vvesside (256) - California, USA - MAR 20, 2013
Malt, coffee, and a little bit of chocolate and hops rounding it out. Pretty good beer.
