Poured into a pint glass: color is dark brown near black, head is light tan with fine bubbles, head presents 1/2 inch thick then dissipates to a thin top and some lacing.

Smell is pretty neutral at first, as it warms cocoa flavors are brought forward, lighter sweet malt.

Taste is similar with light sweet cocoa, lighter bitterness from the chocolate, some light caramel malt, toast, roasted malts. Good flavor.

Mouthfeel is moderate, with good carbonation and crisp bitterness with light lingering sweetness.

Overall a very good beer with great chocolate flavor and good stout backbone.

I purchased this bottle at Wegmans enjoyed chilled in a stout glass.

The color is almost black with medium tan head with opaque clarity and fine bead with wavy lace pattern and good head retention. The smell is relatively high in chocolate aroma with some coffee/chocolate malt mocha type aroma with slight caramel sweet scent and nutty malty smell. The feel is very high in carbonation which dissipates slightly with medium sweetness with light dark malt bitterness and a dry almost ashy texture as it finishes.

The taste is moderately roasty with a mild chocolate taste on entry with light yeast flavor with slight mineral and dry black malt in the taste adding bitterness from mid taste into the finish with relatively dry cocoa flavor throughout. This is a decent stout-very well made with nice complimentary flavor of chocolate. A good stout for when on a budget or if you aren't looking for an imperialized chocolate stout.

4/21...pours dark black, thin head of brown foam. Strong coffee roaster nose. Thin mouthfeel, dark chocolate burst of flavor, fast finish. Slight bitter. light bodied, enough flavoring to stay interesting. Overall, so so.

Poured from a brown 12 oz. bottle. Has a black color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is of chocolate, coffee. Taste is the same, coffee, chocolate, neither is overpowering, some smoke, mild bitterness at the finish. Feels creamy in the mouth and overall is a smooth and tasty stout worth trying.

On tap at red robin in Hershey Pa
Review from notes, drank on Sunday March 17th, 2013

It had a dark chocolcate color body with a small tan head that hung around for a little bit. Its aroma was of cocoa and roasted malt with a hint of coffee. The taste had a roasted coffee flavor upfront and then as it warms up, the chocolate comes in to play. It has a sweet flavor. The mouthfeel is very smooth and leaves a lite chocolate after taste.
