On tap @ Olde Hickory. Pours a clear reddish brown appearance with a tan head. Molasses and brown sugar in the nose with a bit of smoke. Moderate sweetness and bitterness. Well balanced. Mild campfire smoke. Caramel, toffee, baked beans like. Smooth. Favorite here so far. DedicatedToFun (4003) - Santa Monica, California, USA - JAN 29, 2014
Pretty decent bomber from my home state, good porter, lots of chocolate, good stuff TimsRatings (421) - - JAN 3, 2014
Pours a nice dark dark brown with a finger plus of tan head. Nice aroma featuring malt. VERY fizzy - pretty much excessively so. Malt and coffee dominate taste.
Will be interesting to see how this is when not so fizzy.

draft, very dark brown with off white head and decent lacing. lots of roasted malts and chocolate in the nose. the flavor is pretty good. roasted malts, mild smokiness to it in the middle and the end. not overpowering medium body. chinchill (5315) - South Carolina, USA - JUL 26, 2013
12 oz bottle pours dark brown, nearly black, with a light brown head. Moderate retention; superior lacing.
Smells surprisingly hoppy for style. A clear hop presence in the flavor too, but this is dominated by dark roasted grains with a touch of char. More than a hint of char in the finish, with dark roasted grains with a hint of coffee lingering on and on. Medium-full body; very good carbonation level; smooth; dry finish.
O: a nice stout, but with a bit too much burnt grain flavor.

Beautiful deep brown pour with two fingers of tan, creamy head. Huge hit of chocolate on the nose followed by licorice, vanilla, and roasted grains. Taste not what you’d expect, a lot stronger on the hops than most stouts. Dark chocolate, smokiness, and a big piney hop finish. Hop bitterness lingers for a long time. Really unique stout. alexsdad06 (10815) - West Chester, Ohio, USA - APR 6, 2013
22 oz. bottle from John Owens. Pours a dark cola brown with a small off white head. The aroma has roasted malts, dark chocolate, earthy, with some bark. The flavor has the same; roasted malts, bark, dark chocolate and earthy. A bit thin, but not too bad. b3shine (9147) - Indiana, USA - APR 4, 2013
Bomber to snifter (thanks alexsdad06). Looks solid; A dark cola with thin light beige lacing. Smells solid too; hickory and malt. Tastes like it smells with the oil of the hickory giving the illusion of spice. Average on the palate. Solid beer. rondphoto (4494) - Lakeside Park, Kentucky, USA - MAR 25, 2013
Clear very dark brown amber with a foamy head and horizontal streaks of lace. The aroma leads in nicely: solid roasted malt going in that reveals a lot of bitter chocolate (and a little coffee) through the palate to the finish. At the last, the taste is very much like Baker’s semi-sweet chocolate squares. A good late night sipper. demmbonz (784) - Erin, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 12, 2013
Bomber to snifter. I hope my glass is contaminated because something is way off in the aroma. Dark brown stout. Dark roast albeit thin flavor. Had to pour it.
