Draft @ Stanton Public, NYC. Poured in a pint glass, this beer has a dark, cloudy dark brown body with thick, off-white lacing that lasts throughout the entire pint. This is a perfectly smooth, milky stout that provides mostly roasted hop, malt and oat flavor with hints of vanilla and brown sugar. Very flavor, but not too heavy; this is one of the better beers I’ve had in a while. thomasmmc (10) - New Jersey, USA - JUN 11, 2010
Draught at Rattle ’N’ Hum, nice roasted malt aroma with good lite coffee taste. mkel07 (6602) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - NOV 13, 2014
On tap at Archive Beer Boutique 071114. This beer fits the bill in all departments. Looks good, tastes even better. Blacker than the depths of outer space and very smooth and silky in the mouth.not a lot of bitterness happening for a stout. Well balanced. jmm635 (1017) - Havertown, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 16, 2012
Poured dark brown with a creamy tan head. Aroma of dark chocolate, fresh brewed coffee, and some hops. Has a bit of a sour milk flavor. Slick on the tongue. Easy to drink for such a flavorful stout. katrinaez (2454) - norristown, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 11, 2015
Husband had at one time but can’t remember where or when. Tap. Believe it was a beerfest.

UPDATED: APR 7, 2007 Rerate, draft at blind tiger - the had this beer on nitro there - it was much better. Much deeper and more aromatic. Makes all the difference, much creamier also. Draft. Black pour with a creamy white head. Aroma is very toasty, light hops, roasted malts, light coffee. Nice flavor - buttered popcorn, coffee, smoke, toasted nuts. Slightly oily on the plate but still well carbonated. A subtle stout. BREWMUSKCLES (2775) - New Jersey, USA - SEP 29, 2009
slightly smokey, smooth and creamy. a bit acrid and nutty with a roasted facet to it. clean finish with spice of licorice and star anise and a hoppy component. metal aroma is not of interest and it is only moderate of body. suited well to this time of year and what one would look for with its fortifying alcohol that is well hidden. i enjoyed this one.

Had this one at iron abbey beer dinner, I am a huge fan of stouts, and this one is pretty awesome. Coffee, chocolate, with some sweetness. glennmastrange (2957) - hobe sound, Florida, USA - JUL 5, 2013
Tap. Moderate to heavy toasted and dark bread for the malt, moderate resin for the hops, light earth for the yeast, with charcoal in the background. Head is large, creamy, light tan with excellent lacing and is fully lasting. Color is very dark brown. Flavor starts faintly sweet and lightly acidic, then finishes moderately bittersweet. Palate is medium, creamy with a soft carbonation and a chalky finish. Mild beginnings with a nice smooth feel turn into a nice bold beer with more hops then a usual Sweet Stout.
