Meh. Tastes like Guinness with more of a backbone. The aroma is nothing special, taste is generic porter. Definitely a hit or miss.
Draught in a flight at the brewpub. Pours a very dark brown color with a smallish tan head on it. Nose is actually a little light ant roasty with some coffee elements in there. Taste is quite smooth, with a very slight bitterness to it and a lot of roasting coming through. I quite like it. k9coug (116) - USA - FEB 14, 2013
From a Growler. I would call this a porter. Bit thin. Liked the subtle smokiness. Some earlier rating read that there are no roasted malts. I don’t believ this. Much better warm. beernovice39 (3269) - Idaho, USA - FEB 10, 2013
On tap. Black color with a tan top. Scent is roasty with chocolate. Taste is the same. Blairgus (4615) - California, USA - DEC 22, 2012
22 dec 2012, tap at their brew pub. Black. Nose is dark grain and burnt chocolate. Med/thin body and moderately fizzy. Dark bread, tart burnt chocolate. Maybe some plums. Nice.

Tap. Max’s. Pours a clear dark bown body with a small beige head that faded to a wispy partial covering. The nose is pretty light, just a bit of sweetness and a moderate roastiness. A little bit of a coffee with cream kinda thing. The flavor is a little bland for me, nice roastiness with a bit of coffee and chocolate, but it doesn’t really come across as a Sweet Stout at all. Finishes with a dry roastiness and a nice coffee flavor that lingers a bit. The mouthfeel is a bit thin up front but fades to a slightly clingy finish. This is ok, but doesn’t really do anything too special for me.

Dark with brown head. Aroma/flavor are old chocolate and slight phenolic/smoked malt (even though none was used) A cool flagship stout that is interesting and has enough flavor to go around. Sledutah (7841) - Utah, USA - DEC 27, 2010
On tap at the brewpub 22415brewery (379) - Washington, USA - OCT 25, 2010
Appearance: Dark brown with a medium sized beige head and good lacing
Aroma: Chocolate and roasted malts
Taste: Roasted malts, bitter chocolate and coffee
A nice stout
Pours a deep dark black with mahogany undertones, very little head with a little dark espresso brown froth. Aroma is of sharp roast and coffee. Mouthfeel is a bit bubbly, slightly acidic and sharp. Tastes of very strong and sharp roast, a bit overpowering while finishing with a sour lactic note. There is a bit of dark toffee sweetness however it is severely overpowered by the roast. The finish is sour and a bit harsh. Strong fruity esters follow the roasted notes. On tap at Beveridge Place.
