Very thick and creamy tan head. Black. Roasty. Slight chocolate. If the beer tasted like the foam it would be amazing. robertsreality (2460) - Minnesota, USA - JUL 20, 2004

Draught at Cedar Rapids. Pours brown-black with almost no head (what head I can stir up is beige). The aroma is rich mocha, some vanilla, wood, and a bit of a boggy note. The flavor is bitter chocolate with forward roastiness. More earthy hop bitterness than I expected. Caramel and pine in the finish. fidelis83 (2403) - Clinton, Iowa, USA - AUG 2, 2009
Pours black with a tall, nitro-creamy tan head that has excellent retention. Aroma is roast, toasted nuts, a little coffee and some char. Flavor is about the same with a little more nutty and coffee character. Palate is a little watery and the carbonation has a little better bite than most nitro beers. Overall it’s not bad, pretty much a Guinness clone with a little less charm. ElGaucho (2401) - Minnetonka, Minnesota, USA - SEP 13, 2004
2004 ABR. Did not finish the Autumn Brew Review off on a good note. Smells like milk chocolate. Appearance is lacking. No lace, no head. Looks like diarrhea. Flavor isn’t good either. Looked and tasted flat. illinismitty (2271) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - JUN 25, 2010
Draft at East Peoria. Pours black with a beige head. Milky and roasty aroma. Medium bodied with average carbonation, but thin in texture. Pretty basic dry stout with flavors of dark roasted malts and spent coffee grounds. Bif (2236) - St. Charles, Missouri, USA - OCT 27, 2015
On tap. Served a blackish color with a nice tan head that lasted with ample lacing. Aroma of roasted malt and coffee. Taste is same as aroma. Decent bitterness and a fairly dry finish. Moderate body, a bit of a gritty feel and not very robust.
