Draft at Capones. Pours black with a brown creamy head, nitro cascading bubbles. Dark roast aroma. Body is medium, but the texture is a tad thin for me. Flavor of strong, dark roasted coffee. Finish is dry, overly bitter, burnt, ashy. A rather disappointing offer from a brewery that normally puts out better beers. stegosaurus (1882) - Levittown, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 18, 2007
On draft at Capone’s, sampled with the Mad Indian. Pour dark with a one finger thick tan head, well retaained and very compact. The aroma is roast and coffee. The flavor is roast, coffee, lifeless. Thin body, unimaginative. CheersMate (1343) - Portland (Sellhood), Oregon, USA - FEB 15, 2009
I didn’t care about the ABV, but what I did care about was the fact that this reminded me of Guinness. Very much watered down if you ask me. The best part about this was the coffee/ash flavor that the beer had. A nice dark black beer with a decent head. Not too bad looking, but the beer is TOO watery. I cannot get over this fact. I think that if they are going to make this it needs to have more body to it, but I realize they are going for the Guinness-type beer. I am not a fan of Guinness ergo I am not really a fan of this type of stout. I loved the ash and coffee flavors, and the look of it, but not a favorite of mine. jrob21 (3690) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - FEB 19, 2009
On tap at Leon’s. Decent tan head gives the first couple of sips a creamy and frothy texture. Aroma has a bit of nuttiness. The flavor is a little thin and disappointing. A little bit of roasted malt and a slightly bitter finish. Otherwise not much else happening especially for a stout. jredmond (8288) - New York, New York, USA - JUN 8, 2009

On tap at Bilbo Baggins in Alexandria, VA. Pours a deep ruby with a one finger tan nitro head. Aroma is light and subdued but roasty, cocoa. Taste is light to medium bodied with cocoa, malted milk balls, and some chocolate covered strawberries. Sweet, refreshing flavor rather than heavy roasted, typical stouts flavors. Clean finish. Lackluster but enjoyable. emacgee (4676) - Chapel Hill, North Carolina, USA - OCT 22, 2009
Draught at Tylers Taproom in Carrboro. Pours a dark brown with copper edges and a moussey nitro head. Nose is earthy, nutty, leafy hops, mild roast. Flavor is earthy malt with mild roast, some diacetyl, metallic hops, light roast character. Creamy mouthfeel with a light body. SpencerDB (223) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - NOV 10, 2009
Got this on draught. The glass for this beer is cool. Poured really dark with soft brown tints when held to the light. Had a frothy head which helped the earthy flavors and roasty flavor come out. Was a little watery and lacked body for me, but decent. alobar (3793) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 14, 2010
Dark brown/black color with a thick tan head. Aroma of roast, chocolate, and vanilla. Flavor of roasted malts, chocolate with some vanilla. So-so beer. Really didn’t enjoy this much. obguthr (6358) - Staunton, Virginia, USA - APR 20, 2010
Draft: Roasted barley malt and sourwood nose. Clear mahogany, firm medium tan head, good lacing. Dry malt, parsley, and mulberry flavor, very low intensity. Wonderfully creamy mouthfeel. Irish style stout with more of an emphasis on texture than flavor. Easy to drink.
