16oz cAn .. bought @ cork and barrel, southside .. . . umm, a good brew but tasted after some really good shit (opium) so my taste buds were brazed a bit .. . Pours a plum black, light foam .. . tar, ash, weak dark chocolate, and light roast .. . probably good fresh on tap, i’d give it another go for sure . . . So is Blanche! seymour (2123) - Maplewood, Missouri, USA - SEP 28, 2011
UPDATED: JUL 31, 2015 Tasted on tap at Oeno in Old Town, Wichita, Kansas, USA in pint glass, but I’ve had the cans as well, and both are equally good. Poured a very dark, opaque reddish brown color with creamy tan head, lasting with some lace. Standard stout characteristics: roasted barley, mild hops, residual sweetness, with a uniquely creamy and complex aftertaste. Interesting. Recommended. jb43 (1695) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - SEP 21, 2011
(can 6/19/11). Dark brown color. Medium tan head. Moderate roasted malt/coffee aroma and flavor, with light sweet chocolate. Avg duration. Light dry finish. Thin texture. Moderate carbonation. Fair lacing. emacgee (4722) - Chapel Hill, North Carolina, USA - SEP 17, 2011
Draught at Brixx. Opaque pour with copper edges and one finger of creamy tan head. Muted aroma, light sweetness and slightly grainy character with some roast . Mild and smooth flavor, medium roast with some sweet coffee and chocolate. Medium body and low carbonation. bsp77 (724) - Minnesota, USA - SEP 6, 2011
Serving glass: Poured from can into Nonic Imperial Pint.
Appearance: Ruby black with thin tan head and spotty lacing.
Aroma: Sweet molasses, roasted malt and milk chocolate. Smells decadent and rich, especially at first.
Taste: Nice semi-sweet mix of chocolate, molasses, roasted malt and licorice. Minimal bitterness - while the smooth, rounded malts are appreciated, a little hop balance or extra roasted bite could have helped.
Palate: Low carbonation, smooth body that is fairly light. Too thin.
Overall: A solid, malty and drinkable Sweet Stout. Good session beer overall, even if there is no "wow" factor. Probably would be better with a slightly bigger body and a touch more bitterness.

Nice sweet stout that doesn’t have too much alcohol. Good bit of body and nice head. Pretty enjoyable. crossovert (14233) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - AUG 24, 2011
It is a pretty tasty little brew. It goes down really smoothly, nice cocoa and caramel flavors with some coffee. wilnatp (723) - Minnesota, USA - AUG 24, 2011
Bottle. Pour is dark. Nose of roast and coffee. Taste is mild sweetness but a bit thin. Smooth. Sessionable dark beer. mattyb83 (737) - Minnesota, USA - AUG 22, 2011
Can. Pour is deep brown with a small khaki head. Slight roasted malt character, chocolate, and some sweet cream. Sweet flavors and slightly sugary. Dark chocolate, cream, a hint of gas station coffee (my fav). Medium body. Maybe a tad thin. Pretty solid. finol (3539) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - AUG 12, 2011
Can at Oliver Twist.
Aroma domiated by coffe. Taste of coffe and chocolate, finishes rather quick and thin.
Like a smoother porter.
