Aggiebob (922) - Huntsville, Alabama, USA - JAN 12, 2015
Bottle poured into pint glass - dark black with a finger of a tan frothy head. Strong coffee and chocolate malt aromas. The taste starts out bitter (roasted coffee) and balances with a sweeter hint of dark chocolate. More a porter than a stout, but overall very good.

DinVT (29) - Vermont, USA - NOV 14, 2014
Some stouts have too much coffee and some have too much chocolate. This has just the right dose of both (meaning slight and balanced instead of overwhelming). Beautiful lacing in a pint glass here at a fake Irish pub outside of Nashville. Not a nitro for smooth carbonation - that would have made it 100.

joeneugs (6105) - Livermore, California, USA - OCT 5, 2014
12 oz. bottle. It pours a very dark brown color with a tan head. The aroma has some very dark, dirty roasted malt with burnt black currants, cocoa and plums. The flavor is very roasted with burnt toast, dark fruits (raisin and prunes) and a very fruity, dirty, ashy finish. Very full bodied and rich for the ABV. Nice.

Pours a nice black color with a thick tan head. Aroma is nice and big, smells of coffee, roasted malt, sweet chocolate, espresso, and more coffee. Taste is coffee, espresso, earthy, bitter chocolate, caramel. Nice mouthfeel on this one. Very solid and drinkable.
