A black appearance with a beige head. The aroma was coffee and chocolate. The flavor was quite roasty with more chocolate and coffee showing through. The aftertaste was rather bitter. Overall this was a great stout. IndyBeerSnob (132) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - FEB 11, 2012
Nitro pour from 12th South Tap room Nashville, TN. WOW! Creamy, thick, Chocolatey, toasty, roasty, yes this beer strikes a perfect harmony for me in what I’m looking for in a chocolate Stout! I’m not afraid to rate a perfect beer and neither should you! This must be on your bucket list of beers to try before you die! Cybercat (6423) - Georgia, USA - MAR 9, 2010
Aroma is strong and smoky with firm tones of fine coffee and unsweetened chocolate. It pours a deep, opaque coffee brown with a nice tan head. Flavor is rich, like a fine and slightly sweet mocha with hints of molasses and licorice. Sublime texture is smooth and tingly, quite pleasing. Grundlepaste (10) - - APR 18, 2012
Very smooth dark chocolate aftertaste. Very deceiving beer for 8.2 abv. Color is appropriate for a chocolate stout. Very dark effervescence as the one I had was on nitro, which could explain the smooth start to finish. Very much appreciated. SanfordBrewer (1610) - Sanford, Florida, USA - JAN 5, 2010

great chclt-malt flavor, no bitterness or astringency, co2 is a bit harsh and tramples some of the delicate flavors and texture. back off on the co2 a bit and throw in some oatmeal to make it silkier and i’d give this a 5!
