Draught at the brewery; 7% ABVmcberko (18573) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 5, 2010
Beautiful dark mahogany color with small creamy head. Nice espresso aroma. The flavor has some chocolate, roasted malt and coffee, well balanced, with the moderate sweetness; relatively low bitterness.
On tap at The Taphouse, pours dark brown with a black head. Aroma of roasted malt, light espresso and light cocoa. Flavour of mocha, burnt espresso and roasted malt. Very solid. bhensonb (15612) - Woodland, California, USA - MAR 4, 2010
Bottle from Malt & Vine. Pours ruddy copper with a one finger beige head. Aroma is coffee. Not sure about the chocolate. Full bodied with creamy carbonation. Flavor is really coffee. Takes awhile for the chocolate to show up, but it outlasts the coffee. This is stark. They really put a lot into this one. Whoof. bu11zeye (13140) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - MAR 27, 2012
(22oz bottle, courtesy of blutt59) Pours a dark amber body with a small beige head. Aroma of coffee, roasted malt, light vanilla, and chocolate. Flavor of coffee, grain, roasted malt, chocolate, nuts, and caramel. slowrunner77 (12586) - Reno, Nevada, USA - AUG 22, 2014
A porter looking and feeling brew rather than a stout, though the description of the base "malt flavor laced with caramel, chocolate, dark fruit, and a touch of sweetness" is spot on. I liked the coffee and cocoa additions as well, but it just iddn’t come together well enough to be elite

Bottle (dregs)… Murky, dark, burnt orange ale with a small, creamy, off-white head. Good retention. The bouquet is huge coffee and mild chocolate – mocha. Medium to full-bodied and creamy with tingly carbonation. Medium sweet, mocha, nutty flavor. Dry finish. Bottle courtesy of dchmela!

Big bold brown pour, thick brown head. Oh yeah this one is nice. Loads of coffee and chocolate. Fudge, brownie batter, sweet and rich. A lot crammed in for under 8% phaleslu (10553) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - NOV 20, 2011
22 oz. bottle from curly- thanks again, Jason! Pours a clear, deep brown-amber with a small beige head. Aroma of gritty coffee grounds, dark chocolate, earth, toast, and burnt sugar. Flavor is off- some dark fruits and sweetener along with roast, toast, nuts, and earth. Medium body with low carbonation and a sweet, Roasty mouthfeel. Off but not bad.

On tap at bier thirty. Pours out dark brown almost black topped with a small tan head. Nose is lots of milk chocolate sweetness vanilla and plenty roast malts. Taste is more of the sweet chocolate and roast malts. after4ever (8025) - Mukilteo, Washington, USA - OCT 16, 2009
22. Smells like fresh coffee grounds for sure. Kind of like processed vacuum-packed coffee, like MJB or something. A little char in there as well. Coffee acidity is throwing some light sourness. Watery, somewhat flat and rather light body. Very much a ground coffee thing, with some light malty chocolate in there as well. Don’t think they really had a plan together for exactly how this one was going to come out.
