From the tap poured a nice dark brew with very little head. Aromas of malt and lightly hopped. Sweet malt flavors with light hints of chocolate, vanilla, and coffee. Medium bodied and delicious. g_georgiou (573) - CYPRUS - APR 29, 2014
Dark brown to black body with a thick brown head. Good retention. Roasted malt aroma, licorice, chocolate, some chocolate and alcohol. Sweet taste. Full body, thick texture. wheresyourball (572) - El Cajon, California, USA - OCT 19, 2012

Bottle. Aroma is nicely oat-ey if that’s a word. Pours an oily black like I just pulled the drain plug on an engine. Flavor is quite tasty, deep roasted malts, coffee, toll house morsels. Palate is nicely filling. Overall, I believe I’ll be finishing the bottle in short order. Get Some!!

Beautiful stout with a most charming roast complex. Dark dark dark complex that’s got tons of black wheat, chocolate, and lots of smokey earthiness and dry bitter qualities to it. Some sweetness on the swallow, but it’s malt sweetness and the malts in this one are smokey and earthy so it isn’t a too much of a wet sweetness. Great beer, nice and chickory and dark. petewhitley (566) - Nagoya, JAPAN - NOV 4, 2013

Pours a nice, rich, bold black color with a dark brown head. Not much lacing left on the glass. Aroma of coffee, licorice, chocolate, and cereal. Taste is a bit underwheleming...I was expecting a rich, complex flavor and it seem to be lacking. Alcohol is hidden well. Overall a descent stout, just expecting a little more flavor. flemdawg (562) - Rowlett, Texas, USA - MAY 9, 2014
Black body with a thin head of small tan bubbles. Dates in the aroma along with some caramel, hints of chocolate, and coffee. Toffee, caramel, dates and plums, along with the hints of chocolate and coffee in the taste. A little bit of lingering bitterness. Handypaul (556) - Burlington, Vermont, USA - FEB 12, 2014
Bottle. Pours black with a decent lingering brown frothy to creamy head that only leaves a bit of lacing. Aromas of chocolate, burnt malt, orange rind and tangerine. Taste is light to medium bitter, average carbonation, light to medium body, oily to creamy texture and lightly bitter throughout the long finish. Excellent.
