COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This has an initial malt and light caramel flavor and finishes with a dry roasted bitterness. Its character is dominated by the coffee like aroma and taste from the roasted barley. Balanced out with a perfect amount of hops to smooth out the big malt flavor in every pint of this stout.

sfontain (851) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - APR 5, 2013
12 oz bottle. Thin but opaque black; thin-looking frothy but somewhat fizzy light brown head becomes a thin ring. Aroma roast, ash, smoke, sour, chocolate, and, indeed, lots of Coke. Flavor chalky, roasty, smoky chocolate and lesser but noticeable cola; probably some coffee. Ridiculous level of carbonation here; so fizzy its almost painful in the mouth. Blech.

Youngstown, Oh - on tap at the Rust Belt tap room. Motor oil-like viscous black pour, no head Aroma of creosote and licorice. Flavor presents some chocolate, anise seed, vanilla extract and some melted roasted marshmallows. Smooth, yet chewy mouthfeel.

I dont know why every one is so hung up on the head and lacing on this beer. Thats not what this style of beer calls for. This stout begs to be drank. Its an amazing beer.

Bottle courtesy of Butters on 02/21/2011. Dark black body with a very thin off-white head. Sweet chocolate, roast and caramel aroma. Very dry chocolate flavor with some roast and dry bitter finish. Medium body with no carbonation.

Bottle at Natalie's pizza in worthington. Nose is malt and coffee. Pours black with little thick head. Good thick feel but initial smooth taste is followed with some sharp notes of hop and even pepper. Coffee hints throughout are good. Would drink again but not amazing. ---Rated via my mouth

DrSilverworm (9671) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUL 9, 2013
12oz bottle, from And Beer in Athens, OH for $2. Pours a very dark black color, with a good thin brown head, leaves little lace. Awesome bigger dark chocolate flavor, moderate roast, nice light earthy hop. Bigger, chewier body for 5%, very impressive. Smooth, crisp lighter carbonation. Moderate bigger taste, little to no sweetness. Awesome stout. Way better than expected. Tasty and drinkable.

The brewery seems to have gotten some problems ironed out. I bought a 6 of this before and 2 would be flat and 1 overcarbonated. Not now. All 6 were good. Chocolate, coffee with a roasty flavor. Head stays a little longer and I had decent lace in the glass. A year ago it wouldve gotten a 2.5, its up a full point now. A decent introductory stout.

Patrickctenchi (6466) - Coxs Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - SEP 6, 2012
Pours black, with a huge, slushy-looking, dark tan head. Scent is smoked......cola. Taste is spot-on cola-like with a stinging amount of carbonation. (like how Coca-cola was in the 70s in the 7oz bottles.....you remember, the ones that made your chest hurt?) A little dark fruit and chocolate. Honestly, the overabundance of cola and carbonation completely obliterate any other flavours/sensations. Theres just no "beer-ness" present.....and it certainly isnt a stout by a long way. I wonder if I got a bad bottle?

Very nice smoky chocolate aroma with some coffee and roast malt. The flavor was a bit disappointing though, metallic and harsh. It was very thin as well with a dry finish.

PGHbeer77 (571) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 21, 2012
22 oz. Bottle. Decent stout. The best offering from this brewery Ive had thus far. Black pour with only a white ring on a vigorous pour, not much head at all and zero lacing. Burnt roasted coffee scent with abundant licorice note. A light medium body with a creamy texture and a slightly fizzy finish. Licorice fronted taste, a bit of hop, and a roasted coffee finish.
