Draught 8oz snifter at the Brass Tap here in Baltimore. Have enjoyed this many times before, but, apparently, failed to rate - My Bad! Hard to imagine a better looking pour. At almost half the price of the CBS/KBS definitely a worthy option.

Black, opaque, with a tan finger thick head that persists.

Big coffee and chocolate
with hints of sweet malt - slight hint of hops.

Coffee up front leads to chocolate and hints of oatmeal. Great balance between alcohol and Malta.

Exceptional beer, great taste feel and presentation! Perfectly balanced between alcohol content, coffee, and dark beer.

Not a stout fan but this one may win me over. Nice choco coffee taste aroma that blows away most stouts I have tried

Black black with tan head that leaves good lacing. Enticing aroma of coffee, with caramel, chocolate. The taste leads with coffee until it explodes into a great blend of dark chocolate and coffee. Fairly boozy and sweet, with a moderate bitterness that blends nicely with the chocolate for a real cocoa experience. Pretty thick and oh so smooth with moderate to low carbonation bite.

Dark and strong. The chocolate and coffee come together very magically. Many chocolate’s are not as defined but this one is powerful but not overwhelming.
Highly recommend.

Dark as night. Big bold beer - gives a whiff of brewed coffee. Great stout with a hint of chocolate but not a candy beer. First glass was magical. I have a 1/6 keg mostly to myself....will update when I empty it (may take a while).
