Draft at GABF. Pours dark brown with off white head. Nose and taste of toasted chocolate. Not much else. Dry finish. Lighter medium. douglas88 (9188) - Portland, Oregon, USA - DEC 30, 2007
UPDATED: OCT 1, 2008 On tap at Hoppers. Pours a dark brown with a thick nitro head. A nice burnt malt and roasted aromas. The taste is like a Guinness replica, a roasted dry malt with some hints of chocolate and hops. Not bad at all. A full and creamy mouthfeel that leaves your palate clean and fairly dry. Makes me want many more. Ibrew2or3 (8614) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - FEB 3, 2012
On tap at Hopper’s pouring up deep dark mahogany with lasting tight tan head. The aroma offers up spicy anise and black licorice slowly giving way to some dark roasted maltiness. The taste is largely dark roasted malts moving into brief moments of sweet fruity esters and then thin layers of spicy black strap molasses and dark roasted coffee. bytemesis (8415) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - NOV 16, 2016
Tap. Pours clear black, small creamy beige head, dissipates slowly, good lacing. Aroma is pretty much straight roasty with a side of ashtray. Flavor is light sweet, light bitter, roasty, coffee grounds. Medium body, soft mouthfeel. Pleasant. Sledutah (7534) - Utah, USA - NOV 18, 2010

Appearance: Black with a nice off-white nitro head and good lacing
Aroma: Roasted malts and coffee
Taste: Silky mouthfeel. Roasted malts, chocolate and coffee
A nice stout.
NABA Beer Fest 03: Very acidic with lots of chocolate undertones. Especially dry on the palate but coating in the mounth. Tastes and looks nitro charged but I double checked to make sure it wasn't. BrewDad (5328) - Olympia, Washington, USA - JUL 20, 2007

On Tap – Light brown in color with a thin head. The aroma was also awesome then the flavor was so watered down. Hard to brew a decent beer with such lack if use of deep rich malts that could lead to extra umph. This had some chocolate and coffee flavors that where very light. Head shaking disappointment was just hoping.
Draft at brewpub. Pours black. Not much on the nose. A bit of licorice on the tongue. Thin mouthfeel. A bit meh! hellbilly (3249) - scottsdale über alles, Arizona, USA - MAR 6, 2011
on tap 7/23/10.
porter colored mahogany brown with a tan nitro head which lasts the duration.
pleasant aroma of dry roast, smoke, dust, black raisins and a nutty/chocolatey/coffee thing.
the flavor is the same with a bittered finish and lingering rubbery aftertaste.
watery nitro body and dead mouth feel. i’m sure this would be greatly improved with good ’ol co2... 6/3/6/2/12/2.9 Gription79 (2891) - Bountiful, Utah, USA - FEB 7, 2012
On nitro at the brewery. Large roasted malt notes throughout. Dark black stable tan head. Caramel and a slight sour note. Nice little beer.
