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.

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!

Pours with medium mocha head. As expected, the color is dark. It has initial smell of a crisp flowery chocolate. This is a very drinkable stout. It is smooth and living up to the name as the flavor dwells in a very pleasant aftertaste of vanilla and malt. Honestly, this is one of the best stouts I've had in a long time. Kudos to Greenman Brewery. I will definitely be drinking more from them soon. I feel honored to have had the chance to drink this rare brew. Thanks goes to my friend Molly for the present.

Bought back in April at Bestway in Greensboro.
Pours beautifully leaving a finger of head that settles down to the edges of the glass.
Smells of a little chocolate and dark fruits. Roasty. Some coffee. It's hard to smell after a Black Tuesday and Hunahpu's.
Tastes of chocolates and dark fruits with a bit of a burnt after taste. Very drinkable though.
Mouthfeel is perfect. Smooth and creamy, the way a big stout should be.
I like this beer for sure, and the rating may have been higher if it wasn't up against such heavyweights tonight.

Beer pours out black with a mocha head and tight lacing. Very viscous and thick.
I get a lot of chocolate, some roasted malts and a bunch of prune/currant undertones. It smells great, but pick up more hops than I expected.
Taste is a great blend of chocolate, hazelnut, vanilla, cream, roasted malt, a little bit of char at the end keeps this from being a 5.
It has a thicker feel to me, but light enough to keep it from being overly rich, carbonation is ample for the style.
Overall, this was very enjoyable and a great first effort at bottling.

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.
