Bottle from Smith's. Pours hazy blackish brown with tan head. Nose is dark malt, chocolate, mild solvent/medicinals. Tastes dark malty, with notes of banana, chocolate, and vegetal asparagus. Not good. HourGlass13 (1097) - North Carolina, USA - JAN 7, 2018
Jet black pour, with a thin creamy white head. Pleasant sweet chocolate and a slight berry fruitiness in the aroma. Taste is a delicate blend of sweet chocolate fudge, vanilla, and banana. Finish has lingering chocolate fudge and some muted berry notes. Excellent brew here. freekyp (2466) - Thomasville, North Carolina, USA - JAN 6, 2018
Thomas Creek serves up a titillating and interesting stout here. Pours deep dark brown with a pretty average head but average end there. Hefty milk chocolate, berry and tons of fudge. Lots of vanilla and some bubblegum as well. Some hops rise in the prickly finish. Funknmilla (751) - WAYNE, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 5, 2016
UPDATED: DEC 5, 2016 12 oz bottle. Pours dark brown, but looks black in the glass. Brown foam and some dotted lacing happening. Initially banana bread on the sniff, then on a deeper one I imagine a dark chocolate covered banana. Yum!Creamy mouthfeel. I taste bitter chocolate malts, banana is hidden at first, but present in the finish. Its mixed with a malt ball coffee grinds and some bitter chocolate.

Spectacular label, longneck bottle. Deep black-brown. Acidic aroma, reminds me of cake dough, a little powdery. Sweet, acidic, doughy, chickory, roasted. Fruity, good bittering, I didn’t really get banana except at the end when some Now ’n’ Later tones came through. Frothy mouthfeel, good carbonation, some faint anise in the finish. Very enjoyable, could use a little more buffering. ABC Liquors, Betton.
