Noticeable aromas and flavors of chocolate and toasted malt. Slight hop bitterness leaves a dry finish. Not too sweet. Soft brown color with a medium weight. Not bad. miyauchi38 (1096) - chicago, Illinois, USA - SEP 12, 2015

Bottle. This was a little too much for my taste. Too sweet, too unbalanced, too far off the path Block (2727) - Indianapolis, Indiana, USA - JUN 14, 2015
I thought this chocolate stout was awesome. Lots of chocolate throughout. Not much roastedness or side flavors. Really good, pretty strong flavor. superspak (5606) - Michigan, USA - MAY 26, 2015
12 ounce bottle into pint glass, no bottle dating. Pours crystal clear nearly opaque dark brown color with a 1-2 finger dense khaki head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Light spotty lacing clings down the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of dark chocolate, cocoa, coffee, toast, dark bread, light smoke/char, herbal, and roasted earthiness. Nice aromas with good complexity and balance of dark/roasted/bready malt and light-moderate earthy hop notes; with good strength. Taste of dark chocolate, cocoa, coffee, toast, dark bread, light smoke/char, herbal, and roasted earthiness. Fair amount of herbal/roasted bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of dark chocolate, cocoa, coffee, toast, dark bread, light smoke/char, and roasted earthiness for a good bit. Good complexity and robustness of dark/roasted/bready malts and light-moderate earthy hop flavors; with a good roasted bitterness/sweetness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth, fairly creamy, and lightly bready/chalky mouthfeel that is good. Alcohol is very well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is a good American stout style. All around good complexity, robustness, and balance of dark/roasted/bready malt and light-moderate earthy hop flavors; and very smooth to drink. A nicely enjoyable offering.

A- Malty, roasty, dry, cocoa.
A- Black color, black liquid, light brown head.
T- Malty, roasty, bakers chocolate, dry.
P- Medium body, thin texture, high carbonation, dry roasty finish.
O- Really not that great of a beer. At first it smelled like blood, which I am not sure where that came from. After the head faded away, that odd aroma went out the door and dry roasty cocoa came in. The palate was about the same. Simply a boring stout, really. djd07 (14675) - Houston, Texas, USA - MAY 7, 2015
Bottle. Pours a dark brown with tan head leaving spotty lacing. The aroma is chocolate and roast. Medium mouth with flavors matching nose, cracker, toast, light dryness, good. TheGB (578) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - MAY 6, 2015
Pours black with a head that would look more appropriate on a soda. Very little aroma, only some coffee. Taste of thin black malt and little else. Watery, I think they forgot to add the base malt. Steasy66 (1155) - Minnesota, USA - APR 17, 2015
Black with no head. Aroma is roasty and slightly smokey. Flavor is light, and slightly roasty. Very bland stout. demannu (451) - New Jersey, USA - FEB 27, 2015
Find this to be very lackluster and uninspiring. Very bland chocolate flavor and rather thin for my liking. Nothing was really appealing about this for me.
