A - Pours a dark brown-black with a finger of frothy khaki-chocolate colored head. The head fades down at a normal pace leaving behind some lacing.
S - Aroma is a mix of roasted milk chocolate with some oats, coffee, and a hint of vanilla.
T - Starts off with roasted milk chocolate with a bit of vanilla. Through the middle, some coffee comes through alongside a bit more vanilla. The finish is a mix of roasted milk chocolate with some coffee and vanilla.
M - Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Feels smooth and a bit creamy with a sweet and lightly roasted finish.
D - Very drinkable. Nicely balanced with a really good smooth mouthfeel. Wim (3980) - Weelde, BELGIUM - JUL 29, 2012

Very good. Rich malty toasted with a hint of espresso and chocolate that stays on the palate but doesnt overdo it. Just right balance. Overall great, smeel is rich dark roast and sweet malts just like the taste beautiful. eeblah (106) - Arizona, USA - JUL 17, 2012
This is a good stout, smooth and creamy with the dark roasted taste. More malty than hoppy which hits me right. Good for cooler weather. olio (10260) - Tampere, FINLAND - JUL 12, 2012

Aroma is roasted with coffee and chocolate, but feels a bit watery. Also hints of milk-like sourness. Flavour is rather nice with roastiness, chocolate and coffee. Dry finish. Very good for this abv.
bottle from CAH. Pours black with nice head that fades. nose is brown sugar, roasted malt, molasses and roasted chicory. first sip is sweet swith nice mild coffee flavors. finish is sweet with just a hint of bitterness. Cybercat (5828) - Georgia, USA - JUL 3, 2012
Comes out of the tap a dark-chocolate brown just a few whiskers above black with a thick tan head. Strong, smoky aroma has rich notes of chocolate, quality coffee and licorice. Mouth-filling, smoky flavor delights the taste buds with molasses, coffee, chocolate and licorice - a liquid feast. Sweet and hop-bitter hints balance each other nicely. Texture has full body and plenty of fizz. Magically delicious. ;) rich916 (84) - Rancho Cordova, California, USA - JUN 26, 2012
12 bottle poured into pint glass. A hazy brown beer with a redish shine under a tan head. The aroma has notes of straw, roasted malt, and metal. The flavor is sweet with notes of roasted malt, chocolate, and a bit of wood, leading to a dry and roasted finish. The body is medium. Carbonation is soft.

Pours black with a one finger tan head. Aroma of coffee, chocolate, and roasted malt. Taste of coffee, chocolate, and slight bourbon. I am pleased that the bourbon does not assert itself more heavily. Just the right amount of it to compliment the actual stout. This medium bodied brew is well balanced and quite tasty. Nice job.
