Draught into pint glass in Destin. Very nice stout. Aroma and flavour were very heavy on bittersweet chocolate, roasted malt and slight bitterness at the finish. AR (1000) - Georgia, USA - OCT 16, 2007
On tap at the restaurant. Smooth with a roasted chocolate flavor. Very similar to a Guinness. kp (10882) - Woodstock, Georgia, USA - SEP 1, 2007

FBG07. Nose is chocolate malt. Dark black with a thin patchy light-brown head. Uninteresting, watery. Very thin palate. Ibrew2or3 (8660) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - MAR 6, 2007
On Nitro draft at Florida Brewers Guild Fest 2007. Poured black with tall creamy light brown (mocha) head. Light aroma consisting of roasted and burnt malts. The flavor starts of kind of neutral and slowly coffee, roasted and burnt malts come to the surface. Into the dry finish the burnt malts seem to take over.

The aroma has toasted malt and is sweet but does not have much of the coffee and chocolate that I have come to expect from a stout. The appearance is brown with a thin head. The flavor is like the aroma with some bitterness. The palate is utterly to thin for a stout. User37895 (3042) - - JUN 11, 2006
Nice pour, served on nitrogen. Chocolate head and great lacing. Chocolate start to this one, but it turned to a choco-coffee balance as it warmed. Hops started to show up half way through, moreso than others from this non-hoppy Irish ale category, and I actually enjoyed it. Finish was notably dry, but not with overdone hops. Mouthfeel was moderate for the style, heavy overall. Nice job, competent brewing. Tmoney99 (14622) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAR 17, 2006
Draft sampler at FBGF. Pours a dark brown color with a moderate creamy light brown head that diminished slowly. Moderate roasted malt aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture. Average roasted coffee malt flavor with a moderate smooth finish. Enniskillen (2058) - Bakersfield, California, USA - JAN 26, 2006
At the brewpub in Pensacola... Pretty average dry stout, nice chocolate is present with plenty of roastiness. After awhile out at sea, I was well happy to have this. Suttree (6415) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - OCT 23, 2005
Sampled at Asheville Brewgrass 2005. Dark brown, with a creamy tan head. Clean, toasty aroma, with a faint hint of vanilla. Xtra creamy, with coffee, a touch of chocolate, and smidgen of vanilla, and a dryish finish. Not bad.
