Poured on draft at the brewery.

Pours a deep dark brown color with a finger of khaki head. The head leaves some spots of lacing before settling into a halo.

The aroma brings notes of fudge, vanilla, dark roasted malts, and fresh coffee.

The flavor follows the nose: Lots of fudgey chocolate, coffee, and roasted malts. There's even the absolute foggiest idea of roasted peanuts on the finish.

The feel is medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Creamy and smooth. Relatively dry. Alcohol is non-existent.

Overall, a great and flavorful stout. Highly drinkable.

Bought a can at the Beer Shop in East Longmeadow, MA. The beer pours with a dark black appearance and a large brown head that dissipates. Some vanilla spiced cocoa was in the aromas. The taste was great; very smooth dark chocolate with hints of black coffee in the aftertaste. Light and creamy mouthfeel. Overall, great taste and mouthfeel.

Dark, chocolate color with a 4F head in a Tulip glass.
Good head retention. Chocolate, coffee, roasted malt aroma.
Unlike a lot of stouts, there is an equal balance of coffee, chocolate and roasted malt.

Smooth, malty MF.

Chocolate, coffee, roasted malt aroma ast.

Excellent stout. One better newer stouts I have tasted.

Near black color with a darker beige head. Surprisingly little lace with only a few, minute spots to show.

Very rich chocolate nose. More than hot cocoa. There's a faint touch of coffee.

The richness is true to the body as well. The taste starts like the smell with a strong semisweet chocolate. The swallow brings on the strongest coffee flavor I've experienced in a Stout. It leaves a long bitter aftertaste. A very powerful beer.

A: Pours a near pitch black color with 2 fingers of head that fades down to a thin cap

S: Roasted malt, coffee, dark and milk chocolate, and light caramel. Maybe a hint of vanilla as well

T: Follows the nose. Starts off with the roasted malt, coffee, and dark chocolate with a moderate bitterness. Goes into the caramel and sweeter chocolate before picking up some nutty notes and light char. Finishes with lingering light bitterness, dark chocolate, and coffee

M: Medium-full bodied with moderate carbonation. On the smoother side

O: A solid stout that highlights both the coffee and chocolate. Quite easy to drink. Worth checking out
