Bottle shared at a tasting at kerenmk’s place. Black with a nice bubbly light brown head. Roasty aroma of dark chocolate, a bit of dark fruit liqueur and light vinous hints. Flavor of dark chocolate, a bit of fruity notes and nice roastiness. Medium-bodied. A very nice Stout. WarChef1 (24) - North Ridgeville, Ohio, USA - JAN 20, 2013
Had this out of a bottle. Poured nice. Head was a little thin i thought. Aroma smelled of slight chocolate and mild roast coffee. Appearance was dark but when held up to a light a lot came through. Mild carbonation which was expected. Taste was lightly sweet. some bitter chocolate. Slight creaminess. Balanced with hop bitterness. Not a bad stout overall. obguthr (6833) - Staunton, Virginia, USA - JAN 19, 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. ads135 (5215) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - JAN 15, 2013
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 (656) - 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.
