KajII (800) - Macon, North Carolina, USA - DEC 5, 2012
11.2oz Bottle. The pour was a murky pitch black with an average (1-2 finger) chocolate shake brown creamy head that was mostly diminishing, down to a thin film and medium collar that pretty much lasted throughout and had good sticky lacing. The aroma was of a roasted dark malt, mild resin hops and a leathery yeast with notes of chocolate, dried dark fruit (prunes) and a nice mild alcohol tinge. The taste was very malty and just a tad sweet with a hint of chocolate early on, then progressed with a mild bitterness, a touch of dark fruit and a bold coffee note towards the finish. The flavor hung on for a decent duration after the swallow with a smooth choco-coffee taste and a mild alcohol warming sensation at the end. Mouthfeel was medium in body with a thin oily texture and a medium carbonation. Overall this was a nice a roasty brew, although I did find it to be just a little thin for a stout it did possess very nice taste and a great drinkability...

ardeo (273) - Flmalle, BELGIUM - JAN 17, 2017
Bottle33. Trs black avec mousse beige crmeuse et collant au verre. Nez cacao, liquorice, caf, fruits, vanille peut-tre. Bouche trs douce au caf crme mais aussi amer, au chocolat noir, aux fruits confits (figue ?), au fum de bon aloi. Trs bonne stout car quilibre : on ne sent pas lalcool (tout de mme 9 %) ni les sucres bien intgrs dans lensemble. Super Lion !

Robe brune, mousse beige, crmeuse et abondante. Nez lgant sur des notes fumes, chocolates, sur un fond de houblon et de fruit, volue vers un cot chocolat au lait et caf, trs complexe. Bouche lattaque ample, riche, complexe, la bulle est la fois fine et moelleuse, la finale longue et superbe sur un cot chocolat et torrfi. Un superbe Stout de fin de soire.

Beardbeerman (341) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 11, 2016
Pours a pitch black robe topped by two fingers of creamy mocha head. Retention is good and strings of lacing cover the sides of the glass. The nose is rich with dark fruits, dattes, figs, molasses, ground coffee, peppercorn. The taste is semi-sweet with the dark fruit at the forefront and bitter coffee notes in the back. Pleasant mouthfeel, nice richness. Long coffee grounds finish. Beautiful product. Cheers!

BrewWhatIWant (59) - Ontario, CANADA - NOV 12, 2016
This pours a very dark brown, almost black, with a short lived brown head. On the nose there is chocolate and alcohol. The taste is very dense. Dark chocolate, espresso, toffee, berries, figs, liquorice, and underneath it all hot alcohol, like vodka. There is no hop presence. It is moderately carbonated and medium bodied. The beer leans a little to the sweet side, though nearly balanced by bitterness. Truly, the dessert of beers.
