There is nothing quite like a nice full bodied stout for cool evenings. Found this in a bottle and bought it because Pizza Port has never let me down yet. This was wonderfully impressive. Full and deep flavor of chocolates and sweets, but still retaining bitterness. The balance of flavor and drinkability really doesn’t get better than this.

Pours black with mocha head. Roasted chocolate nose. Roasted malt, walnut taste. Good body. Big molasses feel. ElCapitan22 (363) - Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 19, 2016
Pours jet black in color. Smells like bitter chocolate. Not a whole lot of taste beyond the chocolate/coffee. It does hold some nice lacing given the 10% alcohol. kennydiaz (362) - Manahawkin, New Jersey, USA - NOV 3, 2012
Pours dark almost black with little carbonation. Has strong wisky, oak, vanilla flavor. Mrnoluv (361) - long beach, California, USA - DEC 24, 2016
The look is the classic dark stout, light brown head, the smell is vanilla, chocolate, malt, the taste is roasted, almost burn coffee beans, strong barley notes, bitter chocolate, sugar cane...this is one complex beer. ABV is a kick in the ass, I love this beer. A seasonal classic.

Pours almost black with a little beige lacing and no head. Slight aroma of burnt coffee and chocolate. Taste like it smells, its ok, nothing to write home about. anderson01 (357) - Spirit Lake, Idaho, USA - MAY 1, 2012
Black in color. Creamy, tan -colored head with Constallation lacing. It actually smells like gooie brownies that just came out of the oven. Also smells of warm peanut butter. Medium-bodied beer with a sticky texture. It starts out with a hint of spice and finishes smooth. There is a slight bitterness to it. Was recommended by brenn79 and I am glad he did. Awesome. footy (348) - scottsdale, Arizona, USA - FEB 24, 2007
UPDATED: JUN 2, 2007 Pizza Port, Solano Beach 4/05. 750 ml Bottle.Dark Brown to Black with large creamy brown head. Hoppy aroma with roasted malt in the background. Lots of chocolate in the taste with good ending bitterness. Very Smooth. So good I drank all 3 bottles in a short amount of time. Much better than speedway stout or stone imperial russian.
On tap at Lost abbey. Lots less body and complexity than I remember. Still good but not as good as previous versions. I think Tomme said he had changed the recipe some. I think. aenima (335) - Askim, SWEDEN - NOV 25, 2013
Wow! Heavy coffee aroma with roast. The taste is very balanced which is dominated with bitter coffee. I would have appreciate more chocolate flavour in this one.
