Pours dark dark brown with an off white head. Chocolate and coffee aroma. Chocolate, coffee, caramel and malt flavors. Medium body and carbonation with a chocolate finish. rmussman (1701) - California, USA - APR 10, 2008
Sampled at the brew pub. Pour was very dark and aroma was rich with roasted scents. Head is pretty thick thanks to the nitro. Overall flavor and texture is very smooth with a dry finish and a nice aftertaste. Very full bodied. AgentSteve (1647) - SF Bay Area, California, USA - FEB 27, 2009
Dark brown pour with nose and flavor of tobacco, chocolate and roasted malts. Dry finish. jasonp (1581) - Ashburn, Virginia, USA - JAN 18, 2008
From June 2007 tasting notes, sampled at Thirsty Bear. Dark brown, almost black with a beige head. Lighly roasty nose with a touch of smoke. Flavor starts with roasted malt, coffee and earthiness - moderately sweet then the bottom falls out (flavorwise) and fades into watery-ness. Light bodied, a bit watery with light carbonation. dinkle50 (1531) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - AUG 25, 2013
Big time cascade effect. Huge roasty aroma. Creamy nitrogen mouth. Long roasty taste. Clean overall and not heavy at all. Dry and roasty.

Tap. Dark, a little bit mahogany around the edges. Roasty, coffee...it’s almost exactly like the 21st amendment 563 stout that I had last night. Good mouthfeel. Oscbert (1319) - Lincoln, California, USA - JUN 18, 2009
~Pours black with diminishing brown head.
~Scent of roasted malts, coffee, and chocolate.
~Chocolate, dark fruits, and roasted malt in flavor.
~Very thin feel. Pretty disappointing, Body is way too thin. Good finish.
~Decent stout, but water like.
