Pours a dark brown color with a tan head. Aroma is light of chocolate, coffee, roasted malts, caramel malts, and molasses. Flavor is sweet with chocolate and molasses at first. Light undertones of coffee and roasted malts. Finishes slightly bitter. omhper (25119) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - JUL 9, 2008
Draught at Oliver Twist, Stockholm. Opaque black, no head. Rich milk chocolate aroma. Sweet and full bodied with clean rounded mouthfeel. Caramelly malt with notes of bees wax, tar and milk chocolate. Warming potent finish with low bitterness. Makes me think of Bailey’s... sleepylopes (318) - New York, USA - JUL 7, 2008

NYC Gathering courtesy of jwc215–pours a dissipating light brown head with black color. Aroma is dark malt-chocolate, oats, acidic. Taste
is dark malt-chocolate, oats, secondary acidic-hops bite. After a brownie, the roughness disappeared-smooth.
Thanks to the bro for sharing this one.
Pours black with a medium off-white head that quickly fades. Aroma is chocolate malts, light coffee, and cardboard. Taste is milk chocolate and slight dark roasts. Overall a fine stout that hides the alcohol well.

Pours a rich black color with medium off-white head that fades quickly. Aroma is intense chocolate malt, cocoa powder, and light roasted coffee. Taste is rich milk chocolate, light coffee, and light roasted malt. Alcohol is well hidden, and the palate is full bodied with a light astringency. Overall, a solid stout. Thanks Ross!

Pours a deep dark brown- almost black with a soda-like big bubbly head, and slight lacing. Aroma is failry big in the chocolate, light roast some hints of coffee, nutty deep dark roasted chocolate- and a bit of hot cocoa powder mix. Flavor is pretty big with the chocolate malts as well- no artificial chocolates at all which is nice, light coffee, nutty roast, and some light burnt smokey malts. Finish is lightly bitter from the dark malts, and fairly smooth. oreogobbler (228) - Austin, Texas, USA - JUL 3, 2008
Pours completely dark brown, black. The rim is a creamy dark chocolate color with a thin off white head.
The aroma starts out with toms of alcohol burning my eyeballs. But it’s a strange situation, the alcohol aroma is being covered by a nice roasty chocolate and spice aroma which balances rather nicely.
The flavor is boozy, chocolate, and roasted malt, coriander, and cinnamon. I also get some hints of a tobacco in the aftertaste that is rather enjoyable. The Palate is a bit thick and syrupy. A tad bit overwhelming, though very creamy. slimchill (1044) - Austin, Texas, USA - JUL 3, 2008
Bottle from TURDFERGUSON. Nice chocolate aroma with a light roastiness. Opaque black with a nice thick brown head that laces nicely. Flavor opens with chocolate sweetness and alcohol in good balance, roasty-bitter finish. Very vreamy palate. A really nice chocolate stout. Bill86 (43) - Tennessee, USA - JUL 1, 2008
A pretty good beer, if the finish was more smooth rather then bitter i would actually buy more but at $7 per 22oz there are FAR better beers out there.
