Dark dark beer with a white head that has a lot of malts and very smooth malty aroma. mstrcrwly (1000) - New York, USA - MAR 31, 2015

12oz bottle pours a dark black with a tan head. Caramel and roasted malt taste AndrewMichaelZ (63) - - FEB 5, 2014
Pours a dark brown with almost no head (just very little beige bubbles that disappear in an instant).
Faint hops on the nose but it's mostly dominated by chocolate aromas.
Drinks with a bubbly light-medium body. Again chocolate comes through with coffee alongside. Finishes a drop bitter with a roasty linger.
Overall for me: a very middle-of-the-road stout. Nothing to write home about. For the money I'd take Trader Joe's Oatmeal Stout.

Wow talk about dark. The appearance is so black you can see a sheen of purple in there. Great heavy stout for those colder than cold winter nights. Leaves a little bit of a metallic after taste which is not appealing. But a good stout.

Nice stout, easy to drink with coffee and bitter chocolate notes, low alcohol and fairly smooth

Frothy dark brown head. Pitch black appearance. Roasted malt and coffee aroma. Initial taste, is roasted malt, toasted bread,and coffee then fades into a sweet molasses like taste, finishing with a bitter and smokey palate. A sweet stout, not too overpowering in anyway. Medium length finish. Medium creamy mouthfeel.

Too toasty. Very nice. Entered this beer on a different app and I'm not able to import my comments unfortunately.
