Pours very dark, almost black, with a thin tannish head. Taste is rich, with notes of chocolate and maybe licorice, and dark fruits. Smooth and well blended. This one is almost more of an imperial stout than a ’regular’ stout. Thumbs way up... sloth (2955) - Ceciltucky, Co., Maryland, USA - AUG 10, 2011
Large tan head with fair retention and some stringy spotty lace. Black with a teeny bit of red edging. Nose of chocolate and roast and a hint of berry. Medium bodied, soft carbo, creamy on the palate, oily. Basic chocolate and roast flavors, some milk chocolate and a little licorice, mild coffee as well. Lightly sweet roasty, bittersweet finish.

Dark black body, with a rich coffee colored head. Very sweet aroma, with some roastiness. Full bodied mouthfeel, silky, with bitter and slightly boozy heat at the finish. Flavor is actually fairly one dimensional roasty coffee, with fairly delicate sweetness and a subtle hop twang at the end. A decent stout, actually better than decent. jeff789 (1423) - West Chester, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 5, 2011

Solid black with a dense creamy brown head. Aroma of sweet malt and chocolate. Taste is sweet and smooth with a nice roasty finish. Nice flavor, the sweetness is not overwhelming. Medium rich body with soft smooth carbonation. Dry bitter finish.

Draft. Pours near black with a thin beige head. Roasted malty aroma with dark chocolate and a hint of dark fruits. The flavor has roasted malts, light coffee, and some almost sherry like fruity notes. Solid. russwbeck (117) - Tyrone, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 2, 2011
Not as dark as I would expect a big stout, brown but with some hint of red. Nice light brown head that only lasts a bit and doesn’t lace hardly at all. A surprising sweetness up front, plenty of roastiness and chocolate malts. The sweetness from the smell comes up front on the taste, which gives way to the chocolate roasted malts. Really pleasant taste. A bit lighter than most big stouts, which isn’t bad. Not much carbonation. Really good, interesting drink that keeps you coming back for more.

22oz Bottle Pours out dark brown almost black topped with a small tan head. Aroma was of dark chocolate, light pine hops, rich roast malts, and a little coffee. Taste was more of the chocolate, dark roast, and some sweet pit fruit.

Bottle: IMO, the perfect image of a stout: Dark, dark brown pour with a finger of creamy brown head. Whispy bits of lacing and the suggestion that it will be thick as a milkshake. Nose is sweet with cocoa and espresso with very light roasty tones. Taste brings forth more of the roast along with a richer espresso presence. Roasty, some ashes, a sweet little bit of dark fruits. Finishes with a light bittersweetness. Quite delicious. Savvy1982 (1706) - Lethbridge, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 1, 2010
Bottle. Brought back from Washington State by my friend Rachel. Pours totally opaque black, thin tan head, spotty to excellent lacing. Nose is bitter black chocolate, light acid, some creamy coffee/Turkish coffee notes here too. Very light licorice. Flavours of light acid, light roast, some coffee and chocolate here too.
