Aroma is that of some gourmet soy sauce and rich dark malts. Medium mouthfeel with an incredible amount of earthy, roasted grain. A sharp, lasting tang with a balanced creaminess stains the tongue and back of the throat for quite some time after the brew is consumed. I need to be honest and say that I felt a little disappointed, especially because of all the hype. The heavy hopping resulted in a conflicting coffee/ultra-tangy (almost citrusy) flavor.

This poured a medium to dark brown color with a beige head. Aroma was medium roast, mlighter chioclate and some dark berries. Flavor was a tiny bit of molasses, dark fruits and roasty chocolate, Pretty good.

Pour is thick black with nice creamy tan head, aroma has notes of coffee and chocolate, some dark fruit, anise and roast, hints of caramel and molasses as well. Taste is a nice mix of roasted coffee and sweet dark fruit, some chocolate and caramel add some complexity, hints of bitter earth, finishes fairly smooth and bitter. Nicely done!

Deep brown pour with a nice tan head. Aroma is roasted malt, chocolate, slight coffee, maybe some caramel sweetness. Flavor is bittersweet chocolate, roasted malt, coffee with a little condensed milk, beautiful smooth mouthfeel. Tasty stout. Very good.

Aurelius (5332) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - AUG 17, 2012
Nice, roasted, parched soy nut aroma, lightly sweet. Inky, good painted bomber. Nicely bitter - a good mix of roast and hops. Strongly bitter coffee aftertaste. Slightly heavy body. Mostly dry, a little black pepper, very slightly herbal, bitter cocoa. Thanks to Triock for hauling this back from his northwest vacation and sharing with the office.

pinkzambia (1931) - Boise, Idaho, USA - AUG 19, 2012
Bottle: Dark, jet black with a tan head. Sweet aromas of malts, tanginess, and cardboard. Flavors of chocolate malt with a full body and thin aftertaste. A bitter trailer for the finish which follows sweetness, which I appreciate.

Bottled. Poured brown to black, seriously roasted malts, actually not as heavy bodied as I thought, light espresso finish, Good.

JStax (6478) - Devola/Marietta, Ohio, USA - DEC 31, 2012
Poured from a 22 ounce bottle from a generous trader. Pours a darker brown to black with a nice sized khaki colored head of foam. Aroma has some nice sweet notes with some licorice and brown sugar. Taste is earthily sweet. Thicker mouthfeel. Pretty good beer.

3.8
HenryXXX (205) - British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 7, 2013
Pours a dark black with a creamy brown head. The nose is roasted malts, coffee, anise, and biscuit. The flavor is roasted malt, bitter sweet chocolate, licorice and robust bitter coffee. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
