Thanks to Wil for this one, shared at the 3rd annual chili showdown.
Poured into a pint, it frothed a bit with an ample layer of creamy tan foam. Lasting coverage and good retention, minimal spotty lacing. Bakers chocolate and light roast in the aroma, moreso in the full bodied flavor. Big chocolate, roast, and mild tobacco that gives it some nice complexity. Smooth and creamy feel, full in body. Despite the higher abv, it was quite easy to drink with a silky feel. Recommended!

Thanks to Frank (fbc24) for bringing this to the Nov. '12 Philly 'burbs bottle share.

Dark brown-black pour, oily and opaque with a nice dense cap of mocha head. Aroma of roasty malts, dark chocolate, and strangely, fairly heavy notes of yeast and some dark fruits. Taste was unexpectedly unusual...this was not a typical stout, but instead drank like some hybrid of a stout, a quad, and a barleywine. Dark malts, raisins, figs, dark chocolate, licorice, earthy hops...I'm not sure what kind of yeast they used for this, but I and several other members of the group definitely got some quad-y character from this beer. Not totally sure exactly what was going on with this beer, but whatever it was, it worked. Full-medium body, smooth, tasty.

Note: 2013 Vintage

A: Pours a thick opaque jet black in color with moderate to heavy amounts of gentle visible carbonation along the edges of the glass/surface of the beer and some very dark cola brown highlights. The beer has a two finger tall dense foamy very dark tan head that slowly reduces to a medium sized patch of thick film surround by a thin film covering the remainder of the surface of the beer and a medium thick ring at the edges of the glass. Moderate to significant amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Strong aromas of dark roasted malts, bittersweet chocolate, and some lighter notes of anise/licorice. Some lighter notes of dark fruits (plum) and freshly ground coffee with hints of earthy hops.

T: Upfront there are moderate to strong flavors of deeply roasted dark malts and a strong flavor of bittersweet chocolate. That is followed by some light notes of dark fruit (plum), anise/licorice, and fresh coffee. There are light to moderate flavors of earthy and pine hops. Overall there is a light to moderate amount of lingering bitterness.

M: Very full bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation. Creamy with hints of dryness and alcohol warming in the finish.

O: I really enjoyed this beer - a really nice flavor and aroma with a wonderful body. Overall the alcohol is well hidden and the beer is easy to drink.

Poured from a bottle into a snifter, the beer is almost jet black, with a tan, frothy, foamy, light tan head that settles quickly into a halo of head. Aromas of dark roasted coffee, bittersweet dark chocolate, molasses, charred wood, caramel, hints of smoke, and earthy notes. Very heavy and rich nose. Wow. Flavors are heavily roasted forward, but with more of a blended flavor profile, with the bitter coffee forming a solid backbone, and bittersweet chocolate, caramel, and some creamy sweet notes providing balance. Very tasty and very drinkable. The 9.5% ABV is hidden very well beneath the layers of this brew. More richly sweet notes come out as you drink, with molasses dark sugary sweetness and caramel highlights darting in and out. Earthy notes, and even some hints of tobacco, rough the edges up enough to really define each sip, and allow you to appreciate the experience. Smooth, slightly heavy, and layered body, with a bitter, roasted, and chocolate laden aftertaste. The finish is smooth, with a slightly dry, bitter undertone. This is a beast, and well worth searching out.

750ml bottle, bottled Feb 2, 2012.

Pours a deep chocolate brown with a huge fluffy beige head that shows great lacing and retention.

Aroma is fairly hoppy with some light earthy notes and plenty of chocolate malts and vanilla. Maybe some hints of roasted espresso beans.

Lots of bittersweet chocolate and vanilla with some light smoke and heavily roasted black malts. Dry, roasty finish.

Mouthfeel is medium bodied with soft carbonation.

I'm impressed with this beer, especially since it's my first beer from Green Man. Heavy on the bittersweet chocolate and roast, but very drinkable.
