Very dark brown with a sudsy beige head and plenty of lacing. Mild aroma of chocolate milk and coffee. Taste is roasty with nice chocolatey bitter and sweet flavors. Medium-full bodied. Fairly one dimensional, but definitely enjoyable. Jado (798) - Camp Hill, AUSTRALIA - JUN 11, 2013
From 355 ml bottle. Pours a deep black with a tan head that collapses pretty quickly. Aromas of coffee, cocoa nibs, plums and light hops. The taste is similar but with more fruit at the front end, particularly raisin. Chocolate notes come in at the end. True to style, there?s a smooth sweetness in the finish with a light chocolate aftertaste. Very nice. gam (3930) - brisbane, AUSTRALIA - JUN 9, 2013

Pours a dark brown with little head that dissipates quite fast. Aroma is malty chocolate and alcohol. Body is quite full with a roasted taste but with a sweet backing and a slight alcoholic taste. It’s quite strong and the alcohol can eventually overwhelm the taste, but it’s still a great double stout! johnnnniee (4312) - Bedford, New Hampshire, USA - JUN 8, 2013
Pours a solid dark brown/black color with a smallish tan head that dissipates to a ring on top. Smells of light roast, chocolate, and caramel with hints of vanilla and light fruit. The flavor is roasty and smokey with lots of chocolate and caramel as well as vanilla and dark fruits. Wow I wasn’t expecting such a complex flavor based on the aroma. Medium body with a moderate level of antiabortion and a sweet almost sugary mouthfeel. Nice stout, I’m glad I picked one up the other day.

Bottle, bit of a low fill line. Nose is luscious chocolate and mocha, pours dark brown-black with a dense and rocky light brown head. Taste is semi-sweet with rich and attractive roast, chocolate, lactose. Smooth medium-full body with no real sourish tang but just a touch of etoh showing. Solid all-around starting shortstop, perhaps an all-star here and there but falls short of the HOF. Hanuta06 (469) - Washington, USA - JUN 2, 2013
Serving: from bottle--purchased at Full Throttle Bottles.
Aroma: light, chocolate, malt aroma.
Appearance: large, rocky, light-brown, initial head with fair lacing and fully diminishing longevity. Dark-brown/black body.
Taste: lightly sweet and chocolatey initial flavor and lightly bitter and smokey finish with average duration.
Palate: medium bodied with creamy texture and soft carbonation.
Overall: excellent. I’d like to try it from the tap. jake65 (3696) - Meridian, Idaho, USA - JUN 2, 2013
Bottle: Two fingers of creamy tan head sits atop a very dark brown pour. The nose is straightforward enough with heavy roast and chocolate... it sets the tone for dry roastiness and hints of bittersweet cocoa. Tastes dry and roasty, as the nose suggests, and rich with baker’s chocolate. Finishes dry and roasty with a little floral hop bitterness. Now available locally so I’ll surely pick this up again. otakuden (1783) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - MAY 29, 2013
Black under a creamy khaki head which settles into a solid layer with splatters of lace left in its wake. Swirls creamy and enticing.

Creamy milky roasty chocolate café latte marshmallow delights. Caramel cream on top. Burnt coffee in the back. Chocolate covered dark stone fruits in the middle – raisins and dates.
Smooth rich mouthfeel with a medium weight that floats across my tastebuds. Roasty in the back. Fudge, brownies, and powdered sugar and cream in the middle. Toasted almonds along the edges followed by chocolate and vanilla bean. More vanilla cream in the back of each swallow. A gentle bitter roastiness of coffee and black cacao weaves in and out. Powdered milk and hot cocoa on the lips.
Delicious with an excellent balance of cream and roast matched by a luxurious silky mouthfeel. Truly a divine sweet stout worthy of royalty, or just average Joes and Janes. Either way, another sound beer from Southern Tier and one I look forward to enjoying again and again.
