On tap at the source for ck1’s birthday. The end of the family holiday weekend, extended. Poured a very dark brown with a bit of a white head. Nice lacing. Aroma has a lot of chocolate, caramel and a bit of roast. Taste follows; chocolatey with some caramel malts and some roast. Perhaps a bit thin. Quite tasty with no alcohol presence. Finishes nicely bitter-sweet. 14.4

black color witha dark tan head. Great aromas of coffee, chocolate, and roasted malts. Flavor is of chocolate cake, coffee, and rich roasted malts. This brew has a wonderful roasted malt aftertaste that just lasts and lasts. This is a great brew

22 ounce bottle that poured a dark black color with a tan frothy head. Aromas of roasted coffee, roasted malt, dark chocolate, and some cream. Flavors are the same as the aroma, they blended nicely and was a real good stout overall, I wish I had more.

The Dan Journal #341. Tasted 3/28/10. 220z bomber. Pitch opaque hue with a khaki head. Aromas of chalky cocoa dust and dark chocolate. Good malty nose. Full bodied with a thick body and a great rolling palate. Flacors of dark chocolate and bitter coffee. Great flow with great flavors. Good chocolate flavor but still has a dry finish. Nice drinking with a ton of chocolate.

Picked this beer up at WHole Foods in Madison, WI. Apparently they are starting to distribute which is great. Pours a black color with a nice tan head. Aroma of coffee and chocolate. Flavor is somewhat sweet and smooth. Good beer!
