Deep dark brown coloured body with a creamy, frothy off-white head that leaves a soapy residue. Aroma of everything nice - oak, vanilla pods, coffee, roasted malt, alcohol and even a touch of light hops. Medium-bodied; Strong assertive roasty malt flavour with some peat, a touch of anise, some light nuts, cream and coffee all noticeable. Aftertaste is complex, not too potent and showing a good level of character, while maintaining a slightly easy going attitude. Overall, a nice beer that shows a lot of character very well without deep pungent flavours. I sampled this twelve ounce bottle purchased from Liqour Outlet in Boonton, New Jersey on 08-May-2011 sampled at home in Washington on 20-September-2011. dionysus (1486) - Portland, Oregon, USA - SEP 11, 2011
Thirsty Troll Brew Fest. Pour is deep brown/black with a tan head. Aroma shows dark chocolate, earth, and light roast. Flavor shows the same with hints of dark fruit, light coffee, and what seems like a touch of licorice. Overall body is moderate and finishes with light to moderate bitterness.

Bottle. Dark chocolate, bitter toffee smell. Beer tastes of dark chocolate, malty with hops to it. Roasted aftertaste, slightly bitter. Very solid beer, this score is overinflated though. Tastes a bit too watery to me to earn a 90+, then again I can’t even tell how the hell this site ends up taking our base scores and calculating em to be honest. 7% alcohol. mcnealc31 (255) - Elida, Ohio, USA - SEP 5, 2011
dark color, great head, strong roasted flavor with a bitter, dry finish. This one also has a taste of currants and rye bread. Very complex, very interesting, and very delicious. Reminds me both of a milk stout and an imperial stout. ben4321 (6668) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - AUG 29, 2011
Location: 12 oz bottle from Buy Rite, 8/29/11

Aroma: The nose is bittersweet chocolate, some dry/roasty malts, and some oatiness
Appearance: It pours a dark balckish color with a small beige head and light lace
Flavor: The taste is malty, not particularly sweet, more roasty, with a mild bitterness too
Palate: The body is rather light for the style, a touch watery, smooth and soft, decently drinkable
This is an OK stout overall, but not one that is going to blow anyone away. A nice light bodied beer that doesn’t run into the common issue of being overly sweet. I can certainly see the appeal, it isn’t bad, but I don’t have high praise for it either. It’s just fine.
A very nice stout, but too much coffee for my taste. Needs some more chocolate, maybe a touch of oatmeal and some fruitiness. ryanfolty (2585) - Bourbon County, Minnesota, USA - AUG 22, 2011

Pours a black color with a caramel colored head. Aroma of roast, caramel, nuttiness and earthiness. Light sweet taste with some notes of nut and caramel. A decent session brew.
