12oz bottle. Pours a dark brown/black color with a decent amount of dark mocha colored head. Aroma of sweet chocolate and caramel. Taste is loads of dark chocolate, sweet roasted malt, and a touch of pine bitterness in the finish. hawthorne00 (4195) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - MAY 19, 2013
Bottle. Gloopy pour. Black with a light tan head. Aroma of milky chocolate, mild roast, cardamon, vanilla. Smooth mouthfeel, low carbonation. Rich, milky sweet with fudge, chocolate and coffee, Less roasty than suggested by the aroma. Some light floral notes along with the Indian sweetmeat spices. Bitterness creeps up to partially arrest the sweet finish. No sign of the alcohol. Nice, cuddly beer. Ferris (17097) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 17, 2013
Bottle - Dark chocolate and roast malts. Jet black and thin brown head. Roast malts with a sugar sweetness and some bitter chocolate. Smooth and rich on the palate. Quick hit of bitterness that fades nicely. fidemaster (336) - Naperville, Illinois, USA - MAY 16, 2013
Light Aroma or chocolate. Rich deep black color. Nice rich creamy, chocolatey taste. Combined with lots of malt, caramel, and toffee. It has a nice complex flavor. It has a sharp bitter finish. I wish it had less of a bitter finished because the initial flavor is so pleasant.

UPDATED: MAY 26, 2013 Bottle from Mane Liquor. Pours a very dark brown with a medium, foamy light tan head which lasts the duration. Nose is very lactose forward with a fair bit of dry sweetness and roastiness. Lots of vanilla. Taste is all about the sugar and lactose. Vanilla forward with cream and soy notes. Sort of nutty in a way. Very creamy mouth feel which works in it’s favour. Rather sweet and focuses a lot on that which doesn’t. Not bad barncatmatt (2355) - Cambridge, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 14, 2013
355 ml bottle from wegmans in Niagara Falls. Black, tan head. Nice and roasty, well hopped. Doesn’t drink like a sweet stout. I like this a lot but it isn’t what it says it is. citydave (93) - - MAY 13, 2013
