12 ounce bottle purchased at Total Wine Pembroke Pines, FL for $1.99 Very good! leah2974 (453) - Georgia, USA - JAN 16, 2013
Very dark, not much head. Aroma is faintly toasty with sour/metallic top notes. Taste is dry, roasty, and somewhat sour. Not great. swoopjones (7020) - Buffalo, New York, USA - JAN 16, 2013
draft at Coles, black brown pour. Mild roast in the aroma with a touch of dark chocolate. Decent flavor of roasted malts, hint of chocolate with a lingering chemical finish. Slightly floral bitterness. OK ellolovey (483) - Georgia, USA - JAN 15, 2013
12 oz. Pours a dark brown with a thin tan head. Aroma of roasted malts, chocolate, and a faint hint of vanilla. Taste is loaded with bittersweet cocoa and roasted barley. A bit thin. Bitter coffee ground finish.

Better than your average Magic Hat, certainly. Sweeter and more chocolatey than most comparable stouts. Smoother moutfeel as well. Has a velvety texture that’s pretty appealing. EvanFriend (592) - Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 13, 2013
Dry, burnt notes, and some chocolate milk. Good mouthfeel. Nothing to write home about, but Magic Hat normally can’t brew a drinkable beer to save their lives, and this isn’t at all bad. Bulk_Carrier (6065) - Vermont, USA - JAN 13, 2013
It pours a pitch black giving the same color body. A full lumpy white one inch head appears and lasts for a good five minutes. The body is too dark for any carbonation to be seen rising. The smell has some coffee and chocolate up front but in good balance with a nice roastiness to it. The taste is basically the same with a dry bitter aftertaste and finish. The palate is about a medium, fairly creamy with nothing harsh on the tongue. It is mostly drinkable, probably could have several of these in a session. Overall, this is good for the style and good for me. JohnnyJ (5562) - San Diego, California, USA - JAN 12, 2013
Bottle. Dark brown pour, light tan head. Cocoa, sweet malt, light roast, milk chocolate, and light hop bitterness. A decent stout, better than I thought it was going to be. Sammer (1119) - Plano, Texas, USA - JAN 12, 2013
Bottle. Taste is weak coffee, dark chocolate, roasted nuts and cream. Smooth and very decent.
