tfontana (840) - Fremont, New Hampshire, USA - APR 5, 2016
Bottle pour into tulip glass from One Stop Market. Aroma is chocolate, vanilla, roasted coffee, oatmeal. Appearance is very dark red--almost opaque black--with 1/2 finger width beige head with poor retention, evident sparkle at edge of glass and trace lacing. Taste is as aroma with dominant balance of sweet chocolate and roasted coffee bitterness, hint of dark fruits. Palate is medium-to-full bodied with creamy texture and average carbonation; crisp, dry finish. Overall, pretty much as advertised. Not the most complex beer but a good strong mix of sweet chocolate and bitter coffee.

On nitro at hopleaf. Big foam, nice. Some muted coffee nose. Dark tan with some red hue. Taste is pretty good, the body is excellent. Not much tasting to note, to be honest. Coffee is all Im really getting. The mouthfeel is the best part of this, probably due to the nitro which works perfectly on this beer.

sawbuck (669) - Round Lake, Illinois, USA - MAR 27, 2016
Aroma of some coffee, toffee, and a hint of dark chocolate. Ebony color with a tan head that fades fast. Sweet and creamy up front. Dark chocolate, some charcoal, and a hint of vanilla. Slick mouth feel, finish is bitter chocolate, and some smoke. Not bad.

tillmac62 (689) - Gaffney, South Carolina, USA - MAR 22, 2016
BOD 10/28/15. Pours black. Normal head volume, lacing and retention. Light but very good nose of coffee, chocolate, roast and a bit of char over a slightly sweet malt base with subtle caramel notes. Almost medium body with a bit of creaminess in addition to being smooth - a bit light for an oatmeal stout. World class carbonation with a burst of effervescence in the middle and a finely bubbled prickly finish. The flavor profile is very good but falls short of outstanding due to low flavor intensity. The flavors of the nose all appear and do provide a tasty very well balanced experience. The base is mildly sweet, the middle mildly bitter (roast and hop) and the finish delivers the coffee notes.
