Black-bodied with a loose chocolate head. The nose is heavy with molasses, black patent, and charcoal. To me, this beckons back to the old-time porters. Deep, robust, roastty, moderately burn body. Heapfuls of black patent.

Dogfish120 (143) - Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA - NOV 5, 2009
On tap at brewery: Black/Dark brown with virtually no head, very faint aroma of chocolate, coffee, and caramel. Mouth feel was very thin and watery for a stout, flavor profile was very weak with too much carbonation masking the little complexity that did exist. Not a terrible stout, but no where near "traditional", although the NW coast isnt known for its stouts. Needs a much thicker body with bolder flavor profile.

MrRoss (646) - Delta, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 10, 2009
Enjoyed at Laurelwoods PDX outlet. It arrived almost headless and strangely also with precious little aroma. However, the glass was inviting and dark to look at and the taste was the reward. Nice dark chocolate, burnt coffee, and some malts all combined for an enjoyable flavour, which mightve been further enhanced had the beer not been served at what I think was too cold a temperature.

hayduke (5030) - Eureka, California, USA - MAR 16, 2009
On draft at the 51st Street Brewpub this poured a dark brown with a small tan head and light lacing. Nose of chocolate and coffee with good roasted malt qualities. Mouthfeel rich and clean, and flavor shows lots of that chocolate and coffee, which when combined with the slightly bitter finish made this a solid offering.
