Can. Pours dark brown. Aroma is liquorice, chocolate and some spiciness. Taste is medium bitter. Light bodied but still tasty. JDBaker11058 (2153) - Maryland, USA - MAY 9, 2013
Appearance: pours a cola brown that turns purplish black in a snifter, with a tight but foamy yoohoo-colored head that reluctantly fades to a thick cap and decent lacing. Aroma: dark chocolate, hint of lactic tang, ancho chile heat, vanilla, and a whiff of oreo cookie. Taste: burnt black bread, ash, stone, a surprising hint of herb (cut grass?), then maybe some chocolate. Finish: dry, ashy, bitter, with a hint of black pepper. Notes:Palate was overly light, almost watery. It was really noticeable on first sip; when the beer crossed my lips it was almost as if there was no flavor at all, like drinking a slightly burnt mineral water. I was hoping it would get better, because the pour and nose were excellent. Unfortunately, this just absolutely fell apart once I started drinking it. Drain pour, dammit. Hoped for so much more.

Can. Pours a dark black pour with a foamy rapidly dissipating java colored head. Nose is malt with chocolate and cinnamon. Taste is rich chocolate, creamy with some peppery spice. Finishes on chocolate malty peppery notes, with moderate lingering. Nice. Quaff Score 8 / 10 wyzzywyz22 (2108) - Wirral, Merseyside, ENGLAND - FEB 6, 2014
Can, Cave, Glasgow. Poured a dark brown colour with with a medium tan head. Nose was chocolate, roast, cinnamon. Roasted malts, dark fruit, more choc, and spices present in the flavour. Quite lively carbonation. A little on the thin side for a stout. Drinkable and not without some character but ultimately a bit underwhelming.

Can. Pours jet black gorgeous tan head. Aroma of chocolate and spice. Medium body slight heat and sweet cinnamon coco monk191 (1959) - Portland, Oregon, USA - MAY 3, 2013
A very unique beer. Pours a brown-black with a tan head. Smell is strange. Spices and chipotle, but not particularly appetizing. Taste is better. Lots of chipotle and some cinnamon. Some spicy aftertaste. Taste is better then the smell, interesting, but couldn't have too much. Had in the can.

Pours pitch black with a brown head and aroma of spices and chocolate. Taste is sweet and creamy, nice milk chocolate, spices, roasted malt, liquorice, and light chilies leading to a spicy, chocolate finish. Solid stout skoisirius (1909) - Earth, Washington, USA - MAY 24, 2013
Had this once sometime last year...canned. Hint of chocolate on an otherwise sweet roasted nose. Flavors range from burnt coffee to dark chocolate to pepper to hints of spicy hops on the finish. Pretty good stuff. nealblind (1849) - Seattle, Alabama, USA - APR 17, 2013
tan head that lingers. aroma of tart yeast, roasts, pepper and woody vegetation. Starts with flavor of coffee than goes into a subtle heat and finishes a tart lactic sour taste and chocolate aftertaste. Effervescent and light on the palate for a beer of it’s class definitely reminiscent of the Belgian Stout style. It’s much taster than other Belgian Stouts I’ve had. The spices and chocolate really help flesh out the flavor spectrum that exists between tart yeastiness and dark malt.
