On tap poured into pint during the Weyerbacher event at holy smoke. Dark brown/black color with slightly brown foam. Nice coffee and malt aroma. Has a slight vanilla and chocolate hint beneath a coffee malt flavor. Smooth and creamy.
Overall a really nice sweet stout.

Had on tap at Capone's in Norristown, PA. Poured a pitch black color with a tan head that retained well and left a good amount of lacing. Had an aroma of coffee, dark chocolate, dark malts and a touch of vanilla. Very roasty. Tasted like it smelled, and the milk sugar helped maintain a very smooth mouthfeel. Slightly bitter but not too dry.

Full-bodied with very minor carbonation. Not overly innovative, but well-balanced and complex in its own right. I'm glad I got to try it and I would definitely have it again.

First had: on tap at Capone's, Norristown, PA

Good all around stout. Poured opaque black with a mocha head that displayed decent retention and lacing. Aroma of dark roasted malts, cocoa and coffee. Nothing new, but certainly nothing bad. Similar sensation on the tongue, with a good coffee hit right up front, moderately bitter, but balanced out smoothly by the milk sugar and malt sweetness. Medium- to full-bodied, and very drinkable. Nothing you haven't experienced before, but worth a try nonetheless.

This beer pours jet black with a nice mocha head. Smell is sweet with a lot of toasted malt coming forward. Exceptionally smooth with a nice sweet aftertaste. Tons of character with cocoa and bittersweet chocolate clearly in play. An excellent representation of the style.

The beer pours a pitch black color with a thick frothy brown head that slowly fades to lacing. The aroma is great! It has a dark earthy scent that boasts of black and chocolate malts. It's rich and complex with a wide array of roasted, sweet character. The taste is good. Again, it has a complex flavor that's heavy in black and chocolate malts. It has a solid, earthy bitterness, however the lactose sugar and chocolate malts provide a good deal of sweetness. The mouthfeel is fine. It is a full bodied beer with adequate carbonation. This is a good drinking beer. It has excellent malt character; a smooth sweet stout.
