    Bottle. Colour - solid black, light brown edges, nice viscosity, creamy brown head, good lacing. Aroma - dark chocolate, coffee, roasted malt, sweet molasses notes as well. Mouthfeel - full bodied, well carbonated. Flavour - the strongest flavours are dark chocolate and coffee but there are notes of black licorice and charred nuts as well. Great beer.

    Want a stout you can chew try this one. Drinks well ice cold or warm. Try it with a cigar or a steak either is good. Just make sure you get more than one you won't want to run out.

    The assets of this beer? A rich dark color, bitter chocolate/molasses/smokey/malt flavors showing at different times from sip to swallow. This beer, to me, has a "roasty" full-body, with bitter coming through at the top of the flavor ladder.

    I picked up a six pack of these to try . Started with a strong creamy head and good aroma of coffee and a hint of chocolate . Good mouthfeel and tastes of coffee, roasted malts and a hint of dark chocolate . This fits the bill for a good stout drinker.

    Usually i'm not much of a stout person, but this beer makes me re-think that thought. has a great black colored pour with an outstanding head, that hangs around, with a very coffee like aroma. Actually if coffee smelt this good I might actually drink it. This is one stout i will drink on a reqular basis.

    OH MY GOD THANK YOU JEFF!!! What a wonderful treat we have here. Dark chocolate brown with a good cap. Smell is phenomenal and very simple what was unexpected. Coconut I love that aroma in a stout, I’ll have to agree with my friend here and say a cross between red and black liquorish, lots of sweet toasted malts. YUM YUM smooth. Taste also simple but yummy. Toasted sweet malts, sweet thickness, hints of some sour, trace milk chocolate, slight bitter. Near perfect beer. P.S. what the hell is with the scary looking burn victim on the label, looks like the dad from “That 70’s show” tried to put out a camp fire with his face.

    Very good dry stout all around. The other reviews are right on as far as description. My favorite part of this beer is the good dry finish, just the way a good stout should be.
