Subtle chocolate and cream flavors play out nicely with some solid roastiness, nice little hop kick at the end, clean finish.
Creamy medium mouthfeel, well carbonated, exceptionally drinkable.
Carbonation tickles the tongue a bit, and I'm finding it just a wee bit too bubbly for my taste. Not a bad stout at all, but a little light in the body and heavy in the carbonation for me to consider it excellent. Thick and creamy with some soapy retention, but a large fist full tall head, and VERY dark brown mahogany color getting into imperial supper territory color. Soft malted grains, creamy senses of vanilla and milk, light bodied, but large roast character without any dry scorching sensations on the nostrils at all. Milky light chocolate but lots of whoppers candy like flavors and whipped up cream.
When I'm in the mood for a "lighter" stout, this is certainly a viable option. Body matches, with thick midnight black body and no see through character at all. Hints towards clove spice but with roast qualities taking the stage. Mouthfeel coats nicely with just a touch of wet but works for the lighter style.
Good flavor, great balance, more hops than most stouts. Had this on 2014-03-03 in Columbia, PA A - Opaque dark brown with a 3-finger dark tan head and nice lacing. Finishes pretty clean with lingering roasted and hop bitterness. Creamy but on the thinner side; more like a Great Lakes Edmund Fitzgerald than a Founder's Porter. Pours a dark black with a two inch light brown bubbly head. Smells of big dark chocolate malts, roasted malts and some espresso.
It tastes of dark chocolate but there is something there that's a bit off-putting. Smooth all the way through, not really bitter or sticky.

Tasty chocolate and hint of vanilla, but the aftertaste was lacking.Creamy and light, but rich in chocolate whip topping, a hint of sweetness matches on the finish.Molasses sticky quality hits on the palate but with no sugar or sticky qualities. Stupidly drinks real easily, and one of the nicer simpler stouts I've had in quite some time. Pours a pitch black from a bottle into a duvel glass. About an inch of dark brown head which turns to a small ring around the top of the brew. Tons of chocolate smell with a raisin oder at the end, creamy mouthful, with vanilla and chocolate opening. Your review must discuss the beer's attributes (look, smell, taste, feel) and your overall impression in order to indicate that you have legitimately tried the beer. Seems like there is a nice bitter dark chocolate taste in there, but well hidden behind the metal. I guess this is an appropriate beer for NFL draft night. This beer poured out wonderfully with a very nice head and very good lacing. Beautiful tan three finger head atop a solid dark mahogany pour, dark as motor oil, spotty lacing in the tulip.Nonconstructive reviews may be removed without notice and action may be taken on your account. Way over carbonated, took 15 minutes to settle down. Hopeful anticipation followed by a let down from a usually great Cleveland brewery. Tastes like Belgian dark chocolate and vanilla beans which yields great aromas of dark chocolate, roasted malt, vanilla, and caramel. Dark chocolate and malt/grain,somewhat roasty too, very pleasant.
