12 oz bottle pours a dark black with tan head. Roasted malt aroma. Dark chocolate and a bit of a hop taste. Very light for a stout. Bulk_Carrier (6065) - Vermont, USA - JAN 20, 2013
It had a nice creamy tan head that left a thin lacing behind. It had a dark brown body. It had a generous roasted malt aroma that rose from the oats and barley flavoring. There were some dark fruits on it. I noticed a roasted perhaps burnt malt in the flavor with a touch of espresso. The palate was medium and it had a dry finish. Overall, this was a good American Stout that I would have again. jjgmd (2162) - Coral Springs, Florida, USA - DEC 4, 2012
Pours a dark brown black color, with a big head. Nose is mild chocolate and espresso. Taste is more bitter than sweet, and light chocolate and coffee. Carbonation is heavy with a full texture. Finish is bitter and somewhat lasting. An average sweet stout. Quaff Score 6 / 10 zgaier (1951) - Coral Springs, Florida, USA - DEC 4, 2012
Pours black with a brown head and aroma of roasted malt and chocolate. Taste is sweet, of roasted malt, chocolate, and caramel with a burnt, toasty, bitter finish. Light stout but not great AdamChandler (5051) - Enfield, New Hampshire, USA - DEC 2, 2012
Pitch black, 1 finger heather head. Very creamy lactose nose and taste. Hint of chocolate and smoke. Lots of coffee and oatmeal. Some brown sugar. The barley dominates this.

This beer pours nearly black with a medium tan head that recedes steadily. Small patches of lacing. Aroma of roasted malt and hops. Light to medium body with a sweet roasted malt character along with notes of hops and coffee. The finish is sweet with a chocolate malt aftertaste. Decent overall. reggiedunlop (3724) - The dub c, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 4, 2012
Pours black with a medium tan head...good lacing. Aroma has roasty dark fruit. Flavor has bitter dark chocolate and smoky dark fruit. Mouthfeel is medium and the finish has a smoky roasty note and mild band aid. gripweed57 (2460) - Hamilton Square, New Jersey, USA - SEP 28, 2012
22 ounce bottle. Pours an opague black color topped by a small tan head. Aroma is roasted malt, espresso and dark chocolate. Flavor upfront is dark roasted malts reminiscent of espresso beans with peppery undertones. Mid taste is more coffee-like with bittersweet chocolate, oats and some worcestershire notes. Finish is more bitter and the hops show up. Overall, a nice stout that offers complexity and smoothness that should appeal to those who enjoy the style. chriso (7533) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 30, 2012
On tap at Sebago, Portland ME in April 2010. Almost Black. Beige head. Has a creamy oatmeal feel. Slightly smoky aroma. Soft roasty, almost nutty, notes come through stronger on the palate. Smooth, mellow mouthfeel. Well judged and tasty with high drinkability.

A decent stout, not as sweet as I expected, but I would rather get the bitterness. A bit light on the mouthfeel for a stout. Half decent roasting and some chocolate malt.Significant lace.
