Had a bottle, pours black brownish, light nose of burnt cocoa. Pretty bland in mouth, mild cocoa and coffee. Not sweet. No personality, no one needs to drink this...

Bottle @ Jewish Food Festival. Smells sweet and roasty, coffee and chocolate. Taste is roasty and not too sweet. Decent.

HopTsing (575) - Sandston, Virginia, USA - JAN 23, 2016
From the bottle poured a dark brew with a creamy dark head. lots of toasty malty aroma and flavor. Nice little hop finish.

Coffee and roast aroma. Oats appear as it warms. Black with full brown head. Slick and roasty. Thinnish mouthfeel. Low bitterness.

Keg at Beer Market. Black with tan head. Strong chocolate aroma, some coffee, some burnt notes. Taste is roasty, chocolate and coffee. Dry with a long chocolate finish. Nice. Brewed in a kibbutz, just like me

corby112 (2813) - philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 14, 2015
Pours a very dark chestnut brown color that appears black in the glass with a two finger mocha head that slowly settles into a thin, lasting ring. Decent retention with spotty lacing left behind. Much darker than expected, especially the frothy dark beige head. Impressive looking. Slightly smokey dark malt aroma with a nice balance of roast and sweeter notes. Robust with burnt sugar, oatmeal, toast and espresso bean followed by sweeter, dessert-like coco,ate malt. Subtle earthy hop presence as well. Medium body with a slight creamy texture but also a bit watery if that makes an sense. Mouthfeel kind of reminds me of nitro. Some dry, roasted bitterness up front but not acrid or unpleasant. Burnt dark malts with hints of bittersweet dark chocolate, oatmeal and coffee bean followed by subtle resinous hops, lactic cream and lighter malt notes, notably lighter chocolate and caramel sweetness. The mouthfeel is a bit off but this beer is well balanced with some nice flavors complimenting each other. This style can be boring but this was pretty complex. I hated the pale ale but this is a good beer from this newish brewery that has me interested in trying more of their offerings.

Countbeer (6589) - Best of E-Town mit 2 Brauhausen, NETHERLANDS - OCT 2, 2015
Bottle: Thanks DSG: Shaker: Small beige light brown head. Black beer. Aromas of coffee, roast, chocolate, coffee roast, some mocha... Flavours of coffee, roast, chocolate, coffee roast, some mocha, bitters and light marzipan... Aftertaste is coffee, roast and some bitters with a light chocolate edge. Low carbo, light creamy mouthfeel, good medium bodied. Enjoyable and very decent stout.

Bottle from Argonaut (CO). Thanks to Brokensail for pointing out the Israel tick. Poured to lagunitas jar glass. Nose is moderate in cocoa but shows some fudge and maybe some molasses. Faint coffee. Black pour with minimal head. Taste is a showcase of chocolate covered coffee beans with a light vanilla note and a dry coffee finish. Clean, quenching palate with just enough silky mouthfeel to balance it out. A light warming in the wars after a few sips shows some alcohol, but isn’t hot. Overall very good. I would drink again but would like it toned down in the abv. Tends to get a little peppery as it warms from the alcohol.

GenDV138 (7899) - Falls Church, Virginia, USA - AUG 7, 2015
Bottle at the DC Local Gathering on 8/1/2015. Dark brownish black with light tan head. Aromas of roast, chocolate, coffee. Tastes of roast, chocolate, caramel, malt. Medium-light body with a dry finish.

nimbleprop (8949) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - AUG 2, 2015
12oz bottle pours a murky black with a ring of off white head. Nose has molasses, licorice, lightly cakey, mild yeast. Flavor has the same, licorice, molasses, chewy grains, light chocolate. Dry and chalky on the palate.
