The first beers I have given a perfect score on on here. I could drink this all day. Not only do I love stouts, I also love dry beers. And this is both. I love the subtle hints of chocolate, coffee and carmel. This would make a great year around beer. Gabemik (46) - Joplin, Missouri, USA - APR 8, 2007
Pours a deep charcoal color with a dark tan hea that is thick and stays with the beer as you drink it. The aroma is roasted malt & chocolate. Mouthfeel is thick and slightly chewy, not syrupy. The taste is exactly what you would expect from an extra stout, coffee, chocolate and roastd malt flavors swirl around the tounge. It’s everything I want from an exra stout. dlovell2 (2090) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - MAR 22, 2011
On Tap at Frisco Grille. Very dark brown with tan head. Roasted malt and Chocolate Aromas. Creamy feel in mouth. Roasted malt flavors with chocolate and vanilla bean notes. Very good beer. JDBaker11058 (2153) - Maryland, USA - NOV 1, 2011
Appearance: jet black, short off-white head with good staying power, some syrupy legs. Aroma: rich hot chocolate, coffee, molasses, and hot summer blacktop. Taste: malty, with chocolate, toasted brown bread, coffee, molasses, warm milk, hint of licorice, and a smooth, earthy hop note. Finish: rich, sweet, earthy, and a little bitter, with lingering syrupy mouthfeel . Notes: This is one of those rare beers that I found myself thinking of days after trying it. Rich, complex, balanced, flavorful. Absolutely stellar. Palate was very thick and smooth, yet the alcohol remained extremely well-hidden. Would absolutel drink again. And again.

Draught at Schlafly Bottleworks. Reddish-brown with thin light brown head. Caramel and chocolate aroma. Smooth tasty, well-balanced and hides the alcohol well. Flavors included chocolate, cocoa and coffee. Nice sweet finish - I thoroughly enjoyed this one.

UPDATED: FEB 1, 2012 Aroma is coffee, earthy malts, dark fruit and grains. The flavor is complex malts mixed with dark fruit, with a dry, bitterness mixed with a touch of alcohol in the finish. This is among the most difficult beer styles to find in my area, Guinness is the only other one around that makes this style, so I don’t have much to compare it to, otherwise this was very good on its own.

Bottle. Poured with the expected visual, thick as oil, topped with froth. Wow, this is freaking delicious -- chocolate milk and coffee, full-on. Nice thick mouthfeel. Well done! (#4507, 2/26/2012) LiMuBai (222) - - MAY 10, 2014
Dark, ebony color with a tan tan head. Charcoal, smokey aroma. Full body flavor, with a nice stout finished. grikmok (132) - Little Rock, Arkansas, USA - MAR 3, 2011
Poured into a tulip. Dark body with a yellowish head. Heavy on the mollases and malts. Lots of coffee taste. Not a bad dessert beer. A little bit surprised in the the sweetness in an Irish stout though.
