Caskalefan (168) - Bellingham, Washington, USA - OCT 7, 2012
Nice black body with off-white head, creamy, roasty, hoppy, coffee-ish, and a nice balance of chocolate with a nice dry (but not overly so) finish. Unpretentious and delicious.

JoeMcPhee (9554) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 6, 2012
Deep black pour with a tight tan head Nose is quite roasty and hoppy. A little bit of fruitiness with some light citrus and pine. Light lingering bitterness. Fairly sticky palate with a nice lingering sweetness. Very tasty brew.

JaBier (8253) - Capital City, Ohio, USA - OCT 4, 2012
Can shared by Dogbrick at Septoberfest V: Septoberfest Rises on 9/29/12. Brown in color with a medium tan head. Aroma of malt and dry roast with a molasses note. Malty flavor with some licorice character before a chocolate and roast finish.

CampesinoTino (800) - Seattle, Washington, USA - SEP 26, 2012
Tall Boy Can. Arachnid black in appearance with a half-inch of light brown head. Aroma is a blend of molasses, licorice, dark chocolate and lightly roasted malts. The flavor is heavy on the bittersweet chocolate, roasted malt and espresso notes in addition to some brown sugar, mocha and pine. Mouthfeel is mildly creamy with medium-level carbonation and a slightly charred, lingering bittersweet finish. Well-balanced for the most part with a surprisingly strong hops presence.

mcberko (19000) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 22, 2012
500mL can at Saraveza, pours near-black with a small beige head. Aroma of roasted malt and soft chocolate malt. Flavour of chocolate malt upfront, noticeable roasted malt, but this is characterized by the chocolate mostly. Slight astringency from the roasted bitterness. Great stout.

22415brewery (379) - Washington, USA - JUN 30, 2012
Can. Pours a jet black, dark as night with a creamy light tan microfoam. Smells like dark roast, dark dried fruits, cold coffee, and a malty biscuit-like character. Tastes rich and relatively sweet with a well-balanced bitterness. Quite a bit of body and full in the mouth with decent carbonation. The initial hit of roast and sweetness is followed up by a lingering bitterness brought on from hops and roasted malt. Alcohol has been kept in check without any off flavors or noticeable fusels.

alexsdad06 (10821) - West Chester, Ohio, USA - JUN 27, 2012
Can. Pours dark brown/black with a medium sized creamy, but diminishing beige head. The aroma has roasted malt, dark chocolate, and some earthy hops. The flavor is dry dark chocolate with some bitterness, roasted malt and ash. Medium bodied at best. OK.

3.8
poisoneddwarf (2648) - Coeur d’ Alene, Idaho, USA - JUN 18, 2012
2 1/2 oz sample at the brewery yesterday. Opaque black under a beige head. Aroma is roasty with coffee notes. Taste is the same. Seemed dry to me (in the finish). Creamy mouthfeel. Good.

3.6
Smurf2055 (1400) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JUN 10, 2012
Pours black with three fingers head and good retention. Smell is roasty and a bit fruity. You can get some of the alcohol. Taste is roast and a bit of fruity. Very dry but fuller bodied. Pretty good.

3.4
5000 (6862) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - JUN 9, 2012
Can:   Black, large frothy brownish head, spotty lacing.   Roasty nose, very faint hops and cow pasture.   Roasted malts on the tongue, some black coffee like notes, moderate hoppiness.   As it warms it sweetens.   Moderate to full bodied.   Well balanced, nice roasted malt background with a decent amount of sweetness.   Little bit of black coffee too.   Nothing out of the ordinary, but well crafted.
