Pitch black color with a medium head. A very winey chocolate aroma. Strong dark cocoa. Big chocolate flavor. Milk, dark, straight cacao nibs. Mild bitterness. Vanilla. Still some red wine character. Full bodied. GreatDane1632 (1174) - North Dakota, USA - JAN 29, 2015
On tap at the Brewery/Brewpub -- This is super chocolate, in a good way. The alcohol is a little hot but it is masked well by the chocolate. Please sir, may I have another? Experiment_Ale (1098) - Dallas, Texas, USA - AUG 4, 2014

Multiple pours at GABF. Appearance is deep black with a frothy brown head and great lacing. Big roasted malt, chocolatey, coffee, coconut, vanilla, woody, brown sugar and molasses in the aroma. Taste is sweet chocolate, brown sugar, bourbon, coconut, dark fruity, leathery, and vanilla with a roasted bitter finish. Syrupy mouthfeel soft carbonation. Damn tasty stout and no signs of alcohol, at all. zizzybalubba (1891) - Raleigh, North Carolina, USA - OCT 16, 2013
