SEDUCTIVELY SMOOTH Our brewers have poured their hearts and roasted malts into this rich, slightly sweet stout. Luscious notes of coffee and chocolate accent the smooth, creamy mouth feel. We will not apologize for any amorous affairs resulting from the consumption of this beverage

Delbomber (387) - Philadelphia, USA - MAY 22, 2002
Sampled this with the brewmaster himself. Opaque black body, steady brown head, releasing chocolate malt and earthy aromas. Oysters are not detectable as they impart a mineral quality and nothing else. Rich, dynamic coffee and chocolate flavor bolstered by hidden fruit and grain, fairly light bodied (very porter-like), goes down buttery smooth. Malty and complex while managing to avoid ever becoming sickly sweet, with a moderate coffee finish, lacking the ever-so-slight bitterness my mouth was expecting. Near perfect otherwise.

mansquito (6248) - Nueva York, New York, USA - APR 6, 2017
From my father: pours near black with a small beige head. Aroma is brewed coffee and some chocolate... very particular coffee. Taste is somewhat sweet. Not bitter at all. Very smooth. Not watery but quite light. I was very surprised that I have never had this before. So it goes.

MeadMuse39 (17) - Haddon Township, New Jersey, USA - MAR 20, 2017
Pour: Black like a cup of strong coffee. Head was caramel amber like the foam from root beer. Nose: Roasted Malts, Coffee, Slight sweetness. Taste: Smoky hickory, chocolate, coffee, slight moleasses syrupy note. Some sweetness. Creamy. Mouthfeel: Light bodied, Few small soft bubbles. Overall: I would pair this with anything Cajun style, but you could even match it with Brie toasted almonds and French baguette. Nutty qualities as well as mushrooms would complement it as well.

demannu (462) - New Jersey, USA - MAR 19, 2017
Black pour, thin tan head. Next to no lacing. Mild roasty aroma. While the favor is also a bit mild, it does hit all the right notes for being a solid stout. Body is smooth but again a bit lacking. Enjoyable but mild overall.

(Bottle). Pours a black brown complexion with disappointing tan head. Roasty malt aroma. The flavor is mild roasted malt with smooth palate. Simple but good. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

abdiorio (43) - West Chester, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 3, 2017
Scents of fig, chocolate, oat, coffee and maple syrup. You taste the chocolate - overall, its very light. The other flavors dont stand out as much as the chocolate. The aftertaste is mild with a light bitterness to it. An easy stout to drink!

PhillyCraft (6959) - 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.

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 (237) - 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 didnt 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.
