Thanks to Bob for the bomber. Poured deep brown with a dense, well-retained khaki head. The aroma picked up sweet milk chocolates and rolled oats, with fresh earthy accents.. sweet overall, and very pleasant to smell. The flavor found sweet and a little darker chocolate at the core, with plenty of ashy, well-roasted black malts too.. a touch of fruit joined sweet chocolate, oats, and roasty black malt on the long, dry, tasty finish. Medium-bodied, well-carbonated, and silky on the palate.. loved the lingering roast and bitterness.. great brew! Braudog (6836) - Yorktown, Virginia, USA - SEP 1, 2014
Draft at the brewery. The aroma is of coffee and dark roast. Of course, this is a dark-colored beer. This all carries to the drink. Pure coffee, mostly, and quite yummy. Pass the sugar. (#5657, 8/28/2014) dmac (6459) - Toms River, New Jersey, USA - JAN 12, 2012
Bottle shared by pineypower. Poured a solid pitch black body with an average to slightly smaller dark beige foamy head with a vigorous pour. Aroma is very roasty with light chocolate, well done toast and slight charcoal. Full body, dry, softer carbonation and a lingering roastiness. Flavor of charcoal, burnt malts and dark burnt chocolate. Solid beer. JK (6294) - St. Louis Park, Minnesota, USA - MAY 19, 2012
It seemed like more of a brown ale, a very good brown ale. Fresh and well hopped for the style. Well roasted but not burnt, and a very good palate. Sampled on draft, at the brewery. Glouglouburp (6103) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 20, 2013
In short: A dirty stout with a bit of many things that don’t all work together.

How: Bottle 22oz, consumed a few months after receiving it from oakbluff, thanks a lot Scott.
The look: Very dark brown (near black) body topped by a small tan head.
In long: Low-intensity nose of roasted chestnuts, mocha chocolate bar and earthy notes. Body size is medium, texture is a bit juicy/oily for the style, medium carbonation. Taste is a bit strange. Basic elements of roast, mocha coffee, roasted chestnuts chocolate and others clash with a weird acidity and also a strong sensation of dirt/earth that turns into dirty tobacco in the finish. That beer really feels dirty-earthy. Alcohol is more apparent than it should be in a 7% beer. Not an offensive beer but not something I need to drink again. The lamest Dissent since wearing socks of different colors to show solidarity against racial discrimination.
Sampled on draught at the brewery tap room in St Louis Park, MN. Pours an opaque dark brown colored brew with an average tan head that slowly dissipates and leaves behind a beige film on glass edge and a thin off-white ring. Aroma of roasted dark malt, some chocolate malt, a hint of anise, light coffee and floral hops. Taste is medium to full bodied, with complex flavors of chocolate and black malt, some black licorice, oatmeal, and floral hops. Finish is quite smooth with some chocolate/oatmeal malt aftertaste along with some mild bitterness. Ernesto987 (6050) - Arizona, USA - AUG 12, 2013
bottle opened at the bottel share, a fogettable lame regular stout that I think sat around too long burg326 (5607) - Florida, USA - APR 16, 2012
22 ounce bottle that pours a dark brown with aromas of coffee, chocolate, resin, roasted malt, and a touch of dark fruits. Flavor is dark chocolate, coffee, some roasted malt, and has a smooth finish. This is my 4th beer from these guys, and haven’t been disappointed yet. badgerben (5327) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - SEP 17, 2011
Autumn Brew Review 2011. Black color with a medium head. Moderate coffee aroma. Big milky and coffee laden flavor, even though this isn’t a breakfast stout. Light roasted barley character. Medium to light body. Alcohol didn’t show up at all, even at 7%. Homer321 (5191) - Melboring, Florida, USA - MAY 9, 2014
Bottle thanks to Kyle. Pours a black color minimal head. Nose is gritty with some milk sweetness. Taste is similar with a kind dissenting finish.
