UPDATED: NOV 25, 2013 A pretty typical stout. Nice chocolate coffee flavor with a thick body. Not as good as Guiness but still solid. Salamiwami (50) - Massachusetts, USA - NOV 21, 2013
Not a big fan of Magic Hat but was pleasantly surprised by this stout. Nice chocolatey flavor with a silky finish. nimbleprop (8924) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - NOV 19, 2013
Poured at RFD DC. Mostly black, a little watery with some tan, spitty head. Nose is malty, grainy, toast, bread crust, molasses, chocolate. Flavor is very similar, malty, sweet, earthy, toast, bread crust, a little wet dirt, some mild citrus. Creamy finish. Solid offering from them. hershiser2 (3825) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - NOV 18, 2013

12 oz. bottle poured to a Czech-pils glass showing a black/brown color with some ruby highlighting, brownish tan, "bubbles & cream" head froth, and ribbony cling to the lacing. The aroma was roasty, with light grain, chocolate, with some smooth creaminess, and a hint of sweetness. Flavor notes were similar, with moderate hop bitterness that possessed an earthy & citrusy astringency, and some lingering nature to it, and decent malt content that generated a lightly creamy mouthfeel. Better than medium bodied, flavorful, with the astringency resisting to bite, even as it warmed. ajtrupp (340) - Broomfield, Colorado, USA - NOV 1, 2013
Probably the best use of bittersweet chocolate I've noticed in a beer. What kind of English nerd write that description? And I say that as an English nerd. It may not always look like it, because I've noticed a lot of my reviews have error. But that's only because I'm drunk by then.

Dark black with a tight tan head. Roasty malt aroma and taste with coffee and light chocolate notes. Kind of a thin body and mouth feel. Overall it is a good stout. johnnyoski (445) - Macomb, Michigan, USA - OCT 27, 2013
Bottle from Winter variety pack. Dark brown pour with a thin, tan head. Dark chocolate, cream and licorice aroma. Bitter cocoa and roasted malt flavors give way to a weak and bitter coffee finish. Average carbonation with dry texture. Body is a little thinner than you would expect. A middle of the road dry stout in my book. mtdewa1 (441) - rome, New York, USA - OCT 24, 2013
From bottle. Aroma is chocolate, malt, caramel and licorice. Taste is bitter chocolate and licorice. Bitterness at end. Smooth stout, very good. Silky rich taste. Overall very good.
