One of my favorite beer names and a new state for me. This beer pours black and red with a short lived tan head. Visually, it reminds me of a thin version of the style. A big roasted and coffee aroma with some dark fruit noted as the coffee settled. Flavor is muddled. Coffee and cream stand out but hops are in the background that don’t compliment. Some molasses, dark fruit, smoked peat. Warmer temps smoothed some of the rough edges but not quite enough to call this above average. Geokkjer (7667) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUN 23, 2012

Pours dark brown with a beige head. Aroma of chocolate, roasted grains, caramel, malt and brown sugar. Flavor is sweet and malty with some caramel, roasted malt, grains hay and berries. Medium body, soft carbonation.
16oz can: pours a mostly opaque black with a spotty-lacing off-white head. Has a lightly sweet toasted malty nose with some milk chocolate character. Body starts with effervescent carbonation and light caramel malty sweetness with plenty of chocolate and light roast before a slightly drier nutty finish. Pretty true to style and enjoyable.

Bottled. Poured deep brown with a fine cap of tan head. The aroma was on the sweet and lightly roasty side, with milk chocolate and heavy cream leading.. a hint of sour charred black malts on the back.. sweet and desserty. The flavor found sweet chocolates and lesser vanilla at the core with milky sugars laced throughout.. touches of coffee and molasses on the edges.. finished with sweet milk chocolates and butter cream. Light-medium bodied and very sweet on the palate.. smooth flow across the palate with complementary lactose-like tanginess on the back. This was very, very drinkable. ajnepple (7362) - Lakewood, Colorado, USA - MAY 31, 2015
On tap at Boonie’s on the Avenue. Black appearance with a tan head. Aroma of vanilla, chocolate, roasted malt and light caramel/toffee. Similar flavor, pretty sweet with a light earthy bitterness. Medium body with a smooth creamy feel. A little too sweet for my liking but still pretty good.

16 ounce can poured into a brand snifter. Pours a dark brown with a thin khaki colored head of foam. The aroma has notes of Oreo and coffee. Taste is creamy and roasty with some nice biscuity notes. A little different take on a sweet stout. Never had one quite like this before. wlajwl (7213) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - MAY 29, 2012
Aroma is chocolate malts and coffee bitterness. The flavor is chocolate, cream, sweetness and a fruit/acidity in the finish. AmEricanbrew (7080) - Same Trailer, Different Park, Louisiana, USA - MAR 6, 2010
