Pours a dark black with a medium mocha head. Aroma is roasts, chocolate, and some chocolate sweetness. Taste is dry coffee roasts and chocolate. Well done and enjoyable. Zach Diesel (906) - Sisters, Oregon, USA - MAR 28, 2004
sweet roasted aroma, milky with hidden roastiness and a slightly bitter palate drdisque (877) - Illinois, USA - APR 20, 2016
On tap at the brewery. Boring typical Irish style stout, lacking the creaminess of its more popular competitors, is more roasty and watery. Not recommended. MarinEvelyn (854) - Wisconsin, USA - JUL 14, 2013
aroma- a little chocolate, roasty-malt.
Fairly smooth, lighter than expected. malt, roast, slightly dry finish. KingpinIPA (841) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 17, 2007
Dark color. Smell of hops, coffee, toffee, caramel, bits of smoke and some roasted malt. Taste of caramel, roasted coffee, malt, toffee, chocolate, bread, hops and a nice bitterness at the end. Also some nut flavor at the end. No, not mine! LOL!

thanks to duane for this, pour was not very aromatic, just kind of plain stout smell. color was a little less than the standard, almost had some reddish tones to it when held up to the light. head was fizzy and dissipated instanly. flavor was very bitter right away, and carried throughout. i never found any of the chocolates or coffee that they say are part of this brew, just the roasted barley flavor and the bitterness. the body was thin, and had a slightly acidic/tangy mouthfeel. not that great of a beer. grimreeser (797) - Minnesota, USA - MAR 5, 2007
Dark brown with a smallish dark tan head. Aroma of coffee, roastiness, some chocolate. Finishes dry. TheDean (786) - MIlwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 10, 2005
Going through and re-sampling some of the Sprecher’s I’ve had before but never rated. It’s a tough job, but someone has to do it. Ok beer, not as good as the Imperial (everything’s better on the dark side). Carlisle (786) - Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 19, 2014
Bottle (labeled as Stout). Black color with thin tan head and no lacing. Smoke aroma. Malt with smoke, chocolate, and coffee notes. Watery body and thin mouthfeel. Long finish.

Sampler as part of flight at Lake Geneva Sprechers. Pours thin black with thin head. A little thin for a stout...nose of coffee and chocolate...initial flavor is similar with a slight hoppy bitterness...good but not great...drinkable.
