12oz bottle into goblet. Pour is a deep dark black color with a very small tan head that developed post pour. Aroma is of roasted malt, hops and chocolate. Taste is remarkable. Roasted malt and coffee with a light chocolate flavor. A good bitterness in the finish.

Ink black with about the darkest brown head I can recall poured from a 12oz bottle. Huge roasty malt but the hops come in immediately. Lots of sweet sensations in the aroma, chocolate milk. But on the tongue it's much bolder black coffee and bitter hops. Swallow it and you get the sweet notes from the aroma. The thick body sticks around and more hop flavor comes through. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

For national stout day! Pours into my goblet with couple inch thick tan head. Jet black. Nice aroma of deep roasted malts and a hint of alcohol. Flavor is slightly roasty and chocolaty. Does not show the alcohol on the palate but definitely in the nose. Lingering nice finish of chocolate as well. Nice beer.

Une bouteille bue dans mon camp de chasse. Une robe tnbreuse comme il se doit et un col pais qui gnre une belle et longue dentelle. Un profond nez de malts trs foncs, de torrfaction et de grains enfums qui collaborent avec des parfums citronns et des vapeurs de rglisse noire. Il faut que je le dise: ces armes qui font le style me plaisent beaucoup. En bouche, ce sont des notes chocolates, de la mlasse et des houblons qui se manifestent avec allgresse. Au palais, tout le savoir faire structurel de cette maison de grande qualit. En finale, jaime le vibrant tmoignage laiss par des houblons amers et bien aromatiques. Tout compte fait, une bire qui, malgr sa grosseur, est bien facile boire.

Brewdork (228) - Sanford, Florida, USA - NOV 7, 2013
Pours thick and black with a full two fingers of beautiful creamy tan head. Rich malty toffee aroma. Malt sweetness with lots of roasted coffee character and just a touch of smokiness. Thick, rich mouthfeel with a warming alcohol finish. Take your time with this one. Its worth savoring.

Bottle from bonefish grill. Pours dark as night. Nose is smooth stout and taste is coffee and cocoa bean with some molasses too. A bid acrid though. ---Rated via my mouth
