The aroma is very faint. The malts are a bit too bitter for me, sour almost. I am a big fan of oatmeal stouts and smokey porters. Unfortunately this didn't taste like it met either of those. I couldn't taste the chocolate flavors described and the hops seem to be lost in the sourness. Perhaps this is better when it is fresher, or on tap... I had a bottle. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Poured from the tap into a pint glass at the Carolina Ale House in Columbia, SC. The appearance is a dark brown color with a small tan head. The aroma is mostly coffee and malt. The taste is very similar to the nose with some slight raisin flavor added.

Drjohnrock (761) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - DEC 31, 2016
From mix 6 pack bought at Village Market (Harris Teeters yuppie division), Johns Island, South Carolina, tasted on July 22, 2016. Very dark brown/coffee color, nice roasted malt aroma with some chocolate, slick texture, toasted malt/chocolate/oat flavor significantly compromised by chemical taste and astringency.

JStax (6018) - Devola/Marietta, Ohio, USA - NOV 18, 2016
12 ounce bottle poured into a brandy snifter. The aroma has strong molasses and licorice notes. Leathery and herbal. This beer actually comes across a lot like a black ipa. Medium body and high carbonation.
