Pours black, big medium brown head. Rich chocolate aroma, some cocoa powder. Taste is cocoa some sweet malt, a little cola. Mouthfeel is mwdium, smoothly carbonated. More accessible than some Stouts, but enjoyable. PhillyCraft (7923) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 29, 2016
Backlog, Pours black from a bottle with a medium beige head. Tasting notes were dark chocolate, brownie, dark malt, coffee, and grain. Medium bodied stout and relatively drinkable at 5.5. Also tried this blended with Fruli strawberry, Canals was calling it a chocolate covered strawberry on the tap station. MadRobin (2988) - Silver Spring, Maryland, USA - AUG 13, 2016

Pours black into a shaker. Mocha head with excellent retention recedes leaving spot lacing. Soft with dark licorice upfront turning to soy in the lasting finish. rentonj7 (250) - Havertown, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 4, 2016
Opaque deep brown with short head. Cocoa, dates, plums, slightly roasted malt on nose. Aroma carries over to flavor with addition of coffee that I didn’t catch before, some whole grain crackers. Light body, slick feel, soft carbonation, medium to long finish with slight bittering from coffee and chocolate. Nice solid low abv stout.

On nitro, so lots of head. Slightly sour malt and barley aroma. Dark black body. Extremely smooth and bitter taste, slightly oaky. Creamy mouthfeel. Exactly what a nitro should be. Tap. Spindelphia (35) - Lambertville, New Jersey, USA - MAY 18, 2016
A very fine stout. Not an Imperial or double or foreign or any other adjective, just a mighty fine Stout. Creamy head, perfect blend of nice dark coffee and chocolate tastes. altonbrownd (5897) - Chevy Chase, Maryland, USA - MAR 15, 2016
Bottle from Perfect Pour. Dark, toasty oak body with thick tan head. Nose is sweet, chocolate, caramel. Taste is oaky, roasty, malts. Smooth texture. Lots of ash in there. Not so great. Where’s the love? b3shine (9145) - Indiana, USA - FEB 9, 2016
Bottle to pint (thanks Kerry). Looks good; a lightly translucent dark brownish cola with foamy beige head that slowly but steadily dissipates into lacing. Smells of dark malt and chocolate alongside mild notes of roast and a touch of sweetness. Tastes like it smells, but not as robust, with a medium-light to medium-bodied mouthfeel that’s on the drier side for not being a dry stout. Solid and sessionable.
