Pours a three finger light tan head that fades slowly leaving a good lace. Black color no highlights. Light carbonation and medium bodied. Roasted coffee nose. Flavor is roasted to burnt coffee with a lingering burnt coffee aftertaste. $3.99 for a 22oz bottle from Beverage Warehouse Winooski, VT. Dorwart (2613) - Robbinsville, New Jersey, USA - JUL 1, 2011
Huge light brown head from a vigorous pour. Very frothy and sudsy in appearance. Somewhat weak aroma with some light roasted malts, milk chocolate, lactose and some floral air freshener. Color is a very dark brown. Soft, sweet and malty aroma with some more lactose, light bittersweet chocolate and some dried flowers. No real alcohol presence. A very roasty and dry stout. Decent. freekyp (2466) - Thomasville, North Carolina, USA - MAR 29, 2005
A huge blast of espresso starts this one off. Flavor packs dark baker’s chocolate flavor alongside the ever prevalent espresso. Not at all sweet, this brew pours a pitch black color with an ample rocky tan head. Bitterness is high with a lingering bitter chocolate finish.

Dark brown with thick tan head. Roasted malt and chocolate aroma with some citrus aromas. Very thin feel in mouth and bubbly. Dark chocolate and roasted malt flavors and sharp bittter finish.

Bottle from January ’10 courtesy of sflpunk. Almost black pour, reddish tints and a good sized, frothy, mocha colored head. Aroma holds dry roast, bitter chocolate, charred wood, sweet caramel, and some bitter hops that mix nicely with the roast component. Flavor holds more roast and chocolate with some increased coffee presence and more dry and bitter hops as well. Palate is a bit of a fault; thin and uninteresting on the tongue. Nevertheless, a tasty stout from Rock Art. BroSpud (2281) - , Massachusetts, USA - MAR 21, 2011
Bomber. Dark black pour with a creamy tan head and decent lacing. Roasted malt aroma with flavors of coffee and smoke. The body is a bit on the thin side but the taste makes up for it. rocbyter (2184) - Waterbury, Connecticut, USA - AUG 11, 2010
Light amount of malts in the aroma. Very dark amber color with a small brown head. Light bitter beginning with a sweet finish. Medium body and silky. oteyj (2138) - New Hampshire, USA - JAN 5, 2010
Shared with the fam. Black pour with brownish tints around the edge of the glass when held up to the light. The head is khaki and frothy in nature, and dissipates into a veneer. The lacing is spot like and prevalent. The aroma is predominantly coffee and chocolate with some lactic creaminess and savory caramel. Quite nice, actually. The flavor is sweet, but demonstrated much more roasted barley than the aroma would suggest. Bitter bakers chocolate, espresso, cream, and caramel are most noticeable, though a noticeable balancing hop presence also makes itself known. Palate is medium bodied for the style, with a smooth caressing mouthfeel, low effervescence, and a chalk like roast oriented finish. Yummy for sure.
