Absolutely terrible. Tastes like plastic. profile - September 18, 2014
A thin stout and a watered down burnt Coffey flavor. This beer is a no go profile - September 3, 2014
Too sweet and flat

Coffee, chocolate, creamy... Not bitter and really nice finish

Light, a little too carbonated feeling for me, flavor could be more. Average stout

Very good, middle-of-the-road stout. Pungent coffee and chocolate notes on the nose, with a noticeable taste throughout. Nice, dark appearance, with dark caramel-colored head. I actually think the flavours are more consistent from start to finish with this than more highly acclaimed stouts. Just because it's almost exclusively sold to Trader's doesn't negate the expertise of the brewers; they did a fine job with this one, especially compared to the price and competition. Will get again.

Chocolate, coffee nose. It's dark with the iconic creamy tan head. It's heavy and creamy . Like silk rolling over the pallet. Chocolate dominates but not overbearing. Subtle coffee notes as well. Chocolate lasts into the finish.

Low viscosity pour with lite carbonation and lite tan small head. Big chocolate aromas and oatmeal overtone. Nice and cold first taste is a delicious blend of chocolate and malt. Oats ruminate. Nice clean finish. Tasty fermentation

Not super rich... Comparable to Guinness draught. Little spice
