Dark brown with a tan head. Chocolate and toasted malt aroma. Slightly sweet. Handypaul (552) - Burlington, Vermont, USA - JUN 18, 2016
Bottle. Pours dark brown with a decent light brown creamy fully-lasting head that leaves good lacing. Aroma of chocolate, roasty malt, slightly burnt malt and coffee. Medium bitter and lightly sweet tastes, thin body, appropriate carbo, flavors of chocolate and strong coffee and a long lingering medium bitter finish. ABV on bottle says 6.0%. Unexpectedly good.

Good to see that this is labeled correctly on ratebeer.
This was poured into a nonic pint glass.
The appearance was a dark brown close to black color with a slim white to off white color-ed level head.
The smell had a sweet cocoa with a decent robust roasty coffee in the background.
The taste copied the smell nicely and leads on into a delicate sweet to roasty aftertaste.
On the palate, this one sat medium bodied with a nice creamy smoothness along my tongue. Bitterness - what bitterness, there is none and you know what, honestly, there doesn’t need to be.
Overall, this is a nice sweet stout just as it is. This is what I think I really needed tonight. Just something smooth and sweet, subtle and roasty, robust to an extent but creamy for a mid ’40’s Halloween night.

22oz bottle picked up while travelling through VT. Pours dark brown, almost black with a tan head that left tons of lacing. They describe this as a British style stout and I would say that is spot on. Does remind me of something I might find in a pub over there. Heavier on the malt notes than the hops. Sessionable. OK not great. dandeman (996) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 28, 2015
olfactif: Chocolat, fudge, petits accents de cerises. Puissance faible et maintient court.
Visuel: Noire avec une faible translucidité. Mousse de taille moyenne, crémeuse et assez persistante.
Gustatif: Des accents sucrés, caramélisés et chocolatés avec une finale longue et sèche. Le caramel est aussi dominant que le chocolat. On y retrouve également du fudge et du butterscotch. La texture est ronde, l’amertume bien dosée et l’effervescence à point. Assez bon comme produit. Sucré et agréable. keanex (1799) - Atco, New Jersey, USA - APR 5, 2015
Undated bottle.jamesewelch (259) - Burlington, Vermont, USA - JAN 29, 2015
Glass: Fiddlehead teku.
Appearance: Deep chestnut body with a creamy tan head on top, light in color.
Aroma: Mild chocolate, semi-syrup like, with light coffee and a hint of caramel.
Taste: Mild decent drinking stout with hints of powdery and syrupy chocolate accompanied by a light roast and toasty malts. Easy to drink, not far off from Youngs Double Chocolate stout.
Palate: Light side of medium bodied, moderately carbonated.
Overall: Decent chocolate stout, easy drinking and approachable. There’s a seltzer taste to it, so maybe tone the carbonation down a tad.
From 22oz bottle, poured into 16oz tulip glassmalrubius (2896) - Springfield, Vermont, USA - SEP 23, 2014
Aroma: sweet, caramel, toffee, floral hops, licorice
Appearance: Black with red tint, tan head
Taste: Medium sweet, light bitter
Palate: full body, thick texture, average carbonation
Overall: No chocolate aroma, but definitely in taste. Easy drinking stout. Maybe a little lactose? Very clean finish. Chocolate tastes like dark chocolate. Hops are present, but doesn’t overpower chocolate aspects. Overall, a nice chocolate stout.
Bottle from ...not sure. Almost black with tan ring and a little lace. Roasted coffee chocolate and wet earth and old wood. Dark chocolate roasted coffee and some mild red grape with woody bitter fairly dry finish. Surprisingly thin body but not watery. Sessionable. Pretty good.
