SHIG (4964) - Wasilla, Alaska, USA - APR 24, 2016
Draft: Poured a pitch black with a tan head. Aroma is sweet and roasted malt mix. Taste was chocolate and roasted malt, smooth silky dry finish. Hidden_Pooch (518) - Stratford, Prince Edward Island, CANADA - APR 24, 2016
Pours jet black, with a nice crema head. Aroma is of roasted barley, espresso, licorice, and smoke. Tastes of roasted barley, dark chocolate, leather and smoke. Has a dry, full body mouthfeel with average carbonation. Very rich root beer quality to it. NikkTwist (3362) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 9, 2016
UPDATED: APR 9, 2016 Draft at The Irish Pol. Opaque black pour with tan foam that reduced quickly but kept a lasting presence. Medium-bodied. Dark chocolate. Carob bean. Cold coffee. Liquorice. Celery root. Hints of dark stone fruit and berries. Fainter hints of smoke. Warms badly; becomes more glossy and less dry. Would likely be better on nitro. dfinney23 (3424) - Houston, Texas, USA - APR 5, 2016
Tight, creamy head thanks to a nitro tap. Roasty and chocolaty and suitably dry. Mr_Pink_152 (5629) - Lincoln, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - MAR 1, 2016
Bottle from Crafty Bottle, Lincoln. Deep black colour with a thin tan head. Aroma is citrus, roasted malt, and a touch of spice and berry. Taste sweet with a fruity sharpness.

On tap black with rich dense creamy nitro beige head. Mostly chocolate and whoppers in the aroma. More of a clean dry dark roast in the flavor. Very tasty dry stout. cmacklin (1329) - Lethbridge, Alberta, CANADA - FEB 28, 2016
650ml bottle. Pours an opaque black with a large, frothy, short lived, tan head that leaves spotty lacing. Sweet aroma of dark chocolate, roasted malt, coffee, and a hint of vanilla. Sweet flavour of roasted malt, dark chocolate, coffee and ash with a dry, bitter, slightly acidic finish. Light to medium body with an oily texture and soft carbonation. A solid dry stout. phaleslu (10731) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - FEB 28, 2016
Draft at the brewery, served in a flight. Pours a deep, nearly opaque coffee brown with a finger of tan head that settles into some lace in the glass and a lasting film atop the beer. Notes of cocoa, fudge, coffee, toast, and earth. Light-bodied, with moderate to medium carbonation and a smooth, toasty mouthfeel. Really nice take on the style. Straightforward but fulfilling.
