Light chocolate aroma with a smooth coffee finish. Well balanced light creamy body. This is a good early summer stout. Not to heavy and doesnt have that filling feeling in the belly

UPDATED: JUL 4, 2009 Bottle. The aroma on this big stout is killer ... More coffee than my morning Joe. this drinks with a whoop-ass java overtone, sweetly drinkable. I think Ive found my favorite Ohio beer. (#3572, 7/3/2009)

Pours black with a tan head. Aromas of chocolate and a little coffee. Palate is the same as aroma along with a little smokiness. Light to medium mouth feel. Nice lacing in the glass. Very nice stout.

Drake (13303) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 8, 2011
12 ounce bottle from Belmont Party Supply. Pours nearly black with a thin brown head that fades quickly. Aroma of roasted malts, chocolate and espresso. The taste is roasted malts, rich coffee notes, caramel and a faint hoppy finish. Thin-medium bodied. Very tasty. I could drink this all day... and the next day. Never had these guys beers before tonight, but so far Im impressed.

Black appearance with a nice brown head. Chocolatey coffee notes that balance really well with the creamy body. Nice and heavy, like a stout should be. Great in front of an outdoor fire. Winner.

strangaj (250) - West Chester, Ohio, USA - JAN 1, 2007
Smells with a bit of chocolate and coffee. Pours with little to no head. Tastes a bit dry and doesnt contain a lot of flavor, but goes down easy with no aftertaste. A great beer for those who are just starting to drink stouts or wanting to drink the loca flavor of cincinnati

kramer (6578) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 24, 2011
12 oz bottle. Pours a clear dark brown body with a small fizzy brown head that faded to a thin wispy film. The nose is very nice, deep roasted malt with some nice coffee and bakers chocolate accents. The flavor is also pretty solid, great chocolate and dry roasted malts make for a rather rich and yet easy drinking Stout. The finish is laced with fresh roasted coffee notes and just the lightest bit of malt bitterness that dries it out a bit. Theres also a light bit of hops in there that suggests a citrusy note that comes from some coffee beans. Mouthfeel is creamy and really smooth with perfect light carbonation. No astringency at all. This was really a big surprise for me, I was not expecting much at all, but this is a really really solid Stout that I would drink all the time if I had access to it. It actually reminds me quite a bit of DFH Chicory Stout come to think of it. Great beer.

zizzybalubba (1846) - Raleigh, North Carolina, USA - DEC 18, 2015
12 oz. bottle from Jungle Jims International Market, Fairfield, OH. Dark brown cola-like pour with a frothy khaki head. Aroma of roasted coffee, light smoke, and rich roasted barley. Taste of dark chocolate, espresso, and light floral hops. Mild bitterness lingers on the palate. A nicely done stout.

ChainGangGuy (4881) - Woodstock, Georgia, USA - JUL 25, 2007
Appearance: Pours a black body with a thin, khaki-colored head. Smell: Sweet-smelling aroma of coffee, dry cocoa, and liquorice candy. Taste: A tasty blend of caramel, chocolate milk, and liquorice tea with only the tiniest measure of hops showing as it warms. Ends with a bit of roastiness on the altogether soft, sweet finish. Mouthfeel: Medium-thin body. Low carbonation. Drinkability: Though a light stout, its wonderfully flavorful and immensely drinkable.

UPDATED: OCT 14, 2007 Growler via Mys Swap 2.0 (thanks cewldre!). Pours black with a huge tan head. Nose is chocolate, roasty, and floral hops. Tastes just like it smells, is pretty sweet with a nice mocha finish. Body is light, carbonation moderate/high. Tis is quite tasty and highly sessionable. I would rate it even higher if it wasnt so over-carbonated.
