Draft at the source. Black color, brown edge head. Aroma of vanilla, dark sweet milk chocolate. Taste is rich, dark, roasty bitter chocolate and vanilla. maxwelldeux (4374) - Snohomish, Washington, USA - JUL 12, 2012
This beer will put some hair on your chest. Pours dark, thick, and black with very little head. Intense aroma of malt, coffee and chocolate. Taste is similar, but even more intense. Feels very thick and heavy, but in a pleasant way. mwbrady12 (469) - Orlando, Florida, USA - JUN 1, 2012
Wildly intriguing aroma of toffee with a hint of honey and dark black pour leads to a complex but satisfying taste and smooth mouthfeel.

Poured the bomber into my bruery snifter. Tan head with beautiful lacing, this is a nice looking beer. Aroma of sweet coffee and alcohol. Taste follows the nose, a little boozy but nothing crazy. Pretty sweet but not too much. This is a very tasty stout. Pretty good all around beer.

Had this a few times over my trip to Dark Lord Day. Poured a dark brown color with a light tan head. Aroma was roasted malts, with a touch of bitter coffee, touch of smoke? Flavor was coffee. Dry finish.

Bottle from Justin in trade. This one poured liked used motor oil and had little carbonation. Aroma was of intense malts, bourbon, and slight honey. Honey actually came out more in the flavor and was fuller than all hell. I really liked it. After I found out the price tag, I would likely pass the second time around, but it was a damn good beer.

Originally reviewed: 3/4/10. Grabbed a bottle of this from City Bev in town. Poured into a goblet. Pours a perfect jet black, allowing no light to penetrate at all. Very thin mocha head rests on top. No retention. No sticky lace. Freshly ground coffee, bitter chocolate, earth, and some roasty goodness all in the nose. Very nice.
The body is silky smooth. Carbonation level is great for the style. Very smooth. Great flavors of bittersweet chocolate bars, coffee, dark breads, and a very light hoppy finish. This is as drinkable as it gets for this style I think. Wow. This is a great beer. They’ve still got a ton over there at the store, I may have to get some to store away for awhile... jw0406 (1275) - atlanta, Georgia, USA - APR 22, 2012

on tap at ohb 7/12/11.
nearly the same brownish black with orange at the edges as the hickory stick stout. tan head.
aromas of charcoal, ash, chocolate, espresso, roast and raisins/dark fruit.
the flavor is the same... fruity with lots of coffee, brown sugar and malt powder. roasty coffee filled aftertaste. the alcohol is warming but its flavor is unnoticed.
slick bodied and smooth but ashiness lightens it up a bit. 7/3/7/4/15+ BigSound (196) - New York, USA - MAR 28, 2012
From notes. Pours black with a small tan head. Nose is roasty, malt Choclate, earthy with a little smoke. The flavor is also earthy, bitter a little dark fruit. The body is pretty light with medium high carbonation.
