12 oz bottle courtesy of ygtbsm94. Pours an opaque black color with a small tan head. The aroma is big and bold with chocolate, burnt malts and coffee. The flavor is more coffee, more chocolate and more coffee. Somewhere in the taste is a bit of tart hops providing a nice complexity. The mouthfeel is full and creamy. The finish is long with lingering coffee and biter walnuts. Overall: A very tasty stout that compares favorably to the worlds best. Thanks brad.

Pour: black body with a creamy tan head. Chocolate, oatmeal, and coffee aroma. Strong roast and some bitterness in the flavor. Light on the hops. Simple, but effective nonetheless.

Gypsy19 (726) - California, USA - JUN 9, 2009
Pours black with just a little lacing. Full coffee aroma, roasted malt, unsweetened chocolate. Flavor is initially really smoky and reminded me of an old ale. Slightly salty, also leathery. Nice and robust all around. Palate is oily, low carbonation, not extraordinary. Overall, very good.

Foamy tight head and lace on an almost black pour. Aroma is chocolate and coffee. Thick chocolate syrup with a nice hard hints of coffee. A nice lingering bitter finish. Full rich palate with medium/low carbonation. A very nice offering.

brew4fun (209) - West Virginia, USA - JUN 4, 2009
Whats not to like? Black pour, persistent tan head leaves consistent lacing. Heavenly aroma of roasted coffee and dark chocolate. Very full body with thick texture. Nutty and very roasty flavor, pronounced but not overwhelming dark chocolate overlay. Good stuff.

UPDATED: JUN 4, 2009 Bottle in the hotel on the way to the airport to avoid having to pack it. Tasted along with Great Lakes Blackout stout. Pours black with a thin tan head. Smells and tastes like DARK bitter chocolate, coffee, oatmeal, and roasty malt. Thick with a bitter, slightly mineral-ish finish.

A real dark one here, head is dense and leaves bubble marks on it that look like craters on the moon. Its a bit nutty, with that toasty, mild coffee and chocolate smell that youd expect. Its thick and dense, toasty, tasting of bitter chocolate and coffee (like biting a coffee bean or cocoa nib). Its character really comes out when it warms up a bit.
