A bit on the thin side with a roasty nose with light chocolate notes. A bit of tartness and smokiness in the finish is welcome. Pours deep brown with a good sticky creamy head. robertsreality (2460) - Minnesota, USA - JUL 20, 2004

UPDATED: FEB 5, 2005 Maple Grove, MN: nice dark color with medium creamy head. Faint smell of coffee and chocolate. Seemed a bit thin and flat. Coffee and a hint of chocolate flavor lingered for a while but there just didn’t seem to be much to it. heemer77 (5358) - Urbandale, Iowa, USA - APR 30, 2005
Sampled at the Cedar Rapids branch. Thick slightly tan head with a black body. The nose os milk chocolate with coffee and amaretto. The taste is slightly bitter with milk chocolate and dried apples. Too much hops for the style. Unbalanced with a thin body. k2 (146) - USA - APR 14, 2007
A disappointing stout. Good color but no body to go along with the notes of chocolate malt and hops.

On tap in Omaha NE. Very dark brown color with a medium amount of head. Slight aroma of coffee and dark chocolate. Not much of a stout; flavor was very mild and very poor mouthfeel. Slight taste of chocolate and malt. Somewhat too watery. Scored a little higher than desrved but it is a stout nonetheless. vyvvy (6521) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - JAN 23, 2008
Pours quite dark with a dense tan head that was determined to say on there the whole time. The aroma is very light with a hint of cream. Medium rich body that gets light on the finish and has the expected sharp carbonation. The flavor starts with light cream, vanilla and some roasted malt. The finis is sour and almost fruity. Like all of the GC beers it is watery. Fair. Russo (2011) - Hemhofen, GERMANY - AUG 14, 2008
