Taste nuts and vanilla, crisp noble hops, aroma has some coffee, cocoa, brown sugar, molasses. Butterscotch and caramel. Nice! JulienHuxley (5856) - Sherbrooke, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 21, 2010
Tap at the brewpub’s anniversary party. Dark pour, creamy tan head. Nice dry grain aromas, very roasted, hops, toasted nuts, some coffee. Taste is well balanced for a strong stout. Slight grainy sweetness easily leveled by the hops and toast flavors. Palate is just creamy enough to coat the inside of the mouth, very enjoyable. jredmond (8342) - New York, New York, USA - MAR 31, 2011
Draft at GM with Andrew, Streets and Brendan. Pours a deep brown almost black body with thin brown lacing. Aroma is nice roasted malts and biscuity. Mouthfeel is great - some dryness, notes of great roast, bitter chocolate - and something sweet. j12601 (12736) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - APR 4, 2011

Tap at Local Option. Dark black pour, off white head that laces a little bit. Aroma of fresh brewed coffee. Flavor is vanilla coffee ice cream bit with more roast than sweetness. Medium full palate. A good, good beer. Johnsense (1694) - - OCT 28, 2012
Black pour with a nice mocha head. Big aroma of piney hops and chocolate - like a black IPA on steroids. Bitter up front, Grapefruit and pine hops, fresh black coffee, dark chocolate, toasted malt, chesnutt. Thick mouthfeel, lace everywhere on the glass. A very interesting drinker for after dinner or to bunker up with during the frankenstorm. Marheb (5823) - San Diego, California, USA - NOV 29, 2012
Une base chocolatée agrémenté de menthe et de cannelle, vraiment surprenant. En voyant que c’est brassé avec des houblons frais, je comprend mieux ce qui l’était un peu moins en la buvant. Lukaduke (3206) - Gray, Maine, USA - JUN 2, 2013
Draft at Pro Pig. Pours a rich black color with a khaki finger of foam. Roasted chocolate, smooth creamy mouthfeel, touches of coffee and dark fruit. Long roast on the finish with a touch of grassy bitterness.
