slowrunner77 (11048) - Reno, Nevada, USA - OCT 7, 2014
"poured near black with a big fluffy light brown head. nice to look at, nicer to smell. the aroma isnt over the top, butsubdued...still nice, though. chocolate malt balls, roasted coffee. you get a touch of smoke and maybe a hint of tobacco in the flavor too. ton of milky smooth chocolate. ridiculously smooth and deceptively lighter body for an 8% stout. one of the most drinkable stouts ive ever had. this could be a daily drinker in the colder months."

hopscotch (10931) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - MAR 25, 2005
Bottle...This beer rocks!... Very dark ale with a mid-sized, creamy, well-tanned head. Ink-blot lacing. Aroma and flavor of dried plum, molasses and chocolate. A touch of cola in there too. Full-bodied and silky smooth with moderate carbonation. Lengthy, chocolatey finish. Really nice, world class beer!
