Growler share at Craft Beer Co, Clerkenwell on 30 Jun 2012. Poured a dark brown, with a scummy beige head. Aroma of slightly funked dark malt, caramel and condensed milk. Slightly sour flavour, with rye bread, toffee and bourbon biscuits. Finish was esters, flat malt and more funk. mike5326 (1782) - virginia beach, Virginia, USA - NOV 7, 2014
Poured from a tap. Dark brown color, medium off white head. Medium sweet malt aroma. Medium body with a creamy feel and a chocolate milk flavor with a smooth finish.

Drinks almost like a brown porter. It’s got a nice nose of roasted malt and some sweet malts, little to no hop character. Some kinda zest is in the nose also. Flavor is smooth roasted malt and some chocolate malt. I dig it nimbleprop (8750) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - AUG 24, 2014
4oz pour at Churchkey DC pours a watery, dark brown with some clumpy, eggshell head. Nose is very bready, malty, mild chocolate, a little rootbeer. Flavor is malty, sweet, caramel, brown sugar, bready, light coffee. Clean, soft finish. radagast83 (8476) - Arlington, Virginia, USA - AUG 20, 2014
Draft at Churchkey during DC Craft Beer Week. Poured a dark brown color with a small off-white head, ruby edges. Aroma was some roasted malts, with some chocolate. Flavor was roasted malts, chocolate. Interesting. Is this a sweet stout or a porter? Will the world ever know?

Almost black pour with a small creamy tan head. Earthy, smoky, roasted malts and chocolate fills the nose. Medium body boasts a lot of familiar flavors with a sweet creamy malt chocolate balls. Pretty tasty. vtafro (7444) - Wayne, New Jersey, USA - JUN 4, 2014
Draft. Dark pour with tan head. Light smoke, meaty with chocolate an roasted aromas. Flavors are roasty and lightly smokey. thebsmitty (138) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - MAY 24, 2014
Pitch black in color with some cream colored head that faded into a very thin collar. Aroma is very roasty, some dark chocolate and a hint coffee. Taste is roasted malt, and an earthiness to it too. Rich, full body and medium carbonation.
