3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from my cellar pours motor oil black. Nose is subtle, taste has big chocolate with alight black roasted coffee on the finish. Body feels a bit thin but the mouth is slick and creamy. This reminds me of a chocolate creamsicle.
Very sweet. This is very sticky with slight coffee. Not to bitter but enjoyable. Almost a cream and vanilla comes through. This is almost like a candy bar honestly. Thin fading head. I would get again. But missing a bit.

2012 vintage sampled at 05-15-16 Public Day. Poured a dark brown with a small off-white sudsy head. Aromas of coffee, sugar, light cream, and chocolate. Flavor had cream and sugar, chocolate, and muted older coffee. That’s to be expected with this an older vintage. Full body, slick texture, soft carbonation, pretty smooth finish.

Great stout. Pours a dark black, with very little head. Nose is coffee, dark roast, a touch of alcohol. Taste follows suit. Plenty of coffee flavor, though it’s not overly bitter. Likewise, the dark roasted malt is dark and full of flavor, but there’s a residual sweetness that cuts some of what could be bitter on the mouthfeel and creates a smooth, chocolatey, and full mouth feel. Finishes with a slightly crispness, and some burn from the high ABV. It all works together though. Great beer. Underdogs88 (325) - New Jersey, USA - MAR 26, 2016
Sweet chocolate aroma. Appearance is jet black with a thick tan head. Flavor is full of milk chocolate. Mouthfeel is medium with medium carbonation. Overall, it's a good chocolate beer. It has an extract chocolate aroma and flavor, but overall it's solid.

App.: Deep brown-black with a decent mocha head.
Aroma: Coffee, dark chocolate and nuts, dark-roasted maltiness, so much coffee, chocolate and nuts, wow, lightly boozy.
Palate: Medium-full body, very creamy and very fine carbonation.
Flav.: Tons of coffee, lots of dark chocolate and moderate nuttniness, boozy, so full-bodied and rich; lots of booze, and a very long coffee and dark chocolate finish.
A very big beer. Probably a poor choice for a work night.
A very good, milk shake like beer. Pours a beautiful deep black with thick tan head. Smells of mocha, vanilla and cinnamon. Extremely thick taste. With lots of milk, vanilla, cinnamon and some chocolate and coffee bitterness in the finish. Had in the bottle. vjohans (756) - SWEDEN - MAY 30, 2015

Pours a deep black with a small foamy light-brown head. Aroma is sweet malt, dark fruit, coffee, vanilla and light green hops-- interesting. Taste is roasty, sweet, coffee, hops and quite bitter with a significant amount of alcohol.
