From 12 ounce bottle purchased as part of a mix six pack from Whole Foods in Brentwood (suburban Nashville) Tennessee, tasted on April 2, 2013. Opaque brown hue, small tan head, fine aroma of coffee, roasted malt, sweetness and an interesting wood-like component, taste of coffee, sweetness and roasted malt that doesn’t quite live up to the aroma’s promise but still not bad--rather good, in fact.

Out of the bottle it is opaque black. A thick tan head forms and leaves heavy lacing around the edge of the glass. Even after the head dissipates with a few sips, a froth remains on the surface. There is little to distinguish the aroma of this beer; it's just faint toasted malt. It carries nice toasted malt onto the palate, backed up with some assertive hops and some serious effervescence for a stout, which adds a lively mouthfeel and nice drinkability. This is a refreshing and enjoyable beer that would be a very good session stout as an alternative to Guinness.

12oz bottle. Pours a dark ruby-brown with a massive three finger tan head. Aroma of dark chocolate, coffee, and sweet dark fruits like grape, raisin, and plum. The flavor was chocolate, coffee and roasted malts. The finish was very coffee and quite bitter. Very smooth, very creamy, but a little on the lighter side.

Rich dark colour with a good head. Mild aroma of hops, weak taste of espresso with a bitter finish. magsinva (1413) - Virginia, USA - SEP 6, 2013
Bottle from God knows where - pours pitch with a tan head. Aroma is roasty with some chocolate notes. Taste is sweet with some dryness on the finish. Meh. jkwalking05 (4743) - Arlington, Texas, USA - JUL 3, 2013
Rated in 2010 (Backlog) - Black in color with a good sized beige head. Aroma is of roasted malt and light chocolate. Taste is of roasted malts. jrodooo5 (1688) - DOVER, Delaware, USA - JUN 27, 2013
Hmm, a very good dark pour with a big mocha head that leaves a huge ring of lacing. The aroma is "dry" or more dull than anything. There’s a very subtle hint of chocolate malt. The taste I suppose is dry but pretty bland for a stout. Certainly not one of my favorites. Ehh
