Pour is a light black with a nice light brown head and good retention. Roasted coffee, chocolate, light licorice hints, and some other dark roasted malts. Light flavor overall, but some decent coffee, roasted grains, chocolate and light caramel hints. Body is a little on the weak side, but the finish is pretty smooth. kramer (6682) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 15, 2006
Draft at brewpub. Poured a dark brown, almost black with a nice creamy one finger nitrogenated (is that a word?) head. Light aroma of roasted malts and slight hints of coffee. Flavor is fairly thin as well, but appropriate to the style. Some roasted malt and to a lesser extent burnt black patent malt. Finish is dry and lightly bitter. Mouthfeel is thin and somewhat watery as expected. Overall, a good example of a less than exciting style. zdk (1917) - New York, New York, USA - AUG 4, 2010
tap @ Otto’s - very dark pour with nice foamy beige head. Arouma is toasted espresso, soft velvety mouthfeel and chocolately. finishes with some astringency and slightly vegetal. Overall decent: the arouma and mouthfeel saves this beer. DiarmaidBHK (4907) - Lewisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 10, 2011
Nice session stout. Pours nearly black with a nice white head that lingers nicely. This one is served from nitrogen so it has a nice creamy mouthfeel. The taste is fairly mild. The roasted malty notes are there but they’re buried. This would make a nice session beer in part because it looks so fantastically drinkable. anders37 (26625) - Malmö, SWEDEN - JUL 24, 2011

Draught at the brewpub. Pours black with ruby tones and a cascading beige head. The aroma is roasty with some strong chocolate notes. The flavor is coffee at first, then chocolate, then ash and wood. It dries out in the finish with a touch of neutral malt character. Not bad. Sammy (12204) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 30, 2008
Enjoyed on nitro-tap at the brewpub. Aroma of roast and licorice. Black with a thick creamy head. The taste is nitro malt, rast, and lots of burnt charred roast. Thick lacing. Creamy mouthfeel, there is sourness well offset by the malting. It’s drinkable. jar72404 (426) - USA - JUL 13, 2011
