Picked this up for just around $1.79 at Total Wine in Marietta, Ga. Definitely cheaper than I had anticipated, after hearing so much good stuff about this beer.
A - Super dar, stout like pour. I put a flashlight up to and saw a little bit of mahogany color. Very pretty, actually.
S - Picking up some roasted (almost burnt) malt notes. Slightly metallic and also rubbery. Maybe this one's getting old or something, the date...well crap, the date on the bottle is from about 2 months ago. Not sure if that makes a difference. Smells kind of like a bon fire.
T - Bitter hops up front tag-teaming with the molasses-like malt flavors. I'm eating a fire, here and someone dropped some bacon in there. Not as sweet as I'd hoped, actually has a slight salty taste.
O - It's definitely not one of those lagers or brown ales where you could down 3 or 4 of them. Unlike Chad from "Chad'z Beer Reviews" I could not drink too many of these. Maybe I'm just a sissy, calling myself "Stoutish Dan" and all. Psh! Pozer!
