Bottle

Appearance: Nearly black, some dark brown around the edges.

Aroma: Very sweet smelling, like chocolate and cold-press coffee.

Taste: Sweet at first, a lot of chocolate and a little honey. Fades to a mostly pleasant, but slightly astringent bitterness.

Mouthfeel: Moderate for a stout. Smooth and just a little sticky.

Overall: Really solid stout with a great chocolate/coffee flavor. Honey and spice are there, but a little too subtle to meet expectations.

Served from the bottle into a tulip glass.

A- Poured black with a soapy mocha-colored head that left splashy lace.

S- Lots of sweet milk chocolate notes, honey, vanilla, and some spice notes.

T- Dominant sweet milk chocolate taste up front with a pretty big charred roasted malt flavor on the finish, some nondescript spice notes are present as well.

M- Medium body, pretty over carbonated for the style, and semi- dry finish.

O- An interesting beer that could have been executed better. The mouthfeel was off for the style and the honey and spices don't really add much to a pretty one-dimensional stout.

Woof. Another great brew from those dogs just south of here. It's a great one, but kind of over-priced at $3.25/bottle (and I see some paid more).

It pours like a stout, black, but headless and nearly flat. There is no lacing. The aroma is a nice blend of boozy (more than it should) and malty, yeasty, and a little hoppy. The taste is a balance of malty sweetness and roasty goodness. It seems more like a big porter.

It goes down real easy and has a beautiful aftertaste. It is not recommended strictly because it is a poor value, but it is a taste brew, though perhaps it didn't turn out as well as it could have.

A: Black coffee, head was a gorgeous mocha brown. It was quickly devoured

S: Roasty, chocolately, stouty goodness

T: The chocolate is present, and evident. The honey, however, eludes my palate

M: Mid-Low carbonation, medium body

O: Enjoyable, but not recommended for honey-lovers. Hessitant to purchase again, but not from my grocer @ $15/4-pack

A: Poured near jet black. Very small, but nice creamlike tan head. Didn't stay around for the party too long.

S: Typical chocolate and burnt leather. Earthy.

M: On the drier side. Roast-like astringency. Medium body and rather good amount of carbonation that plays well.

T: It does a good job repping the taste of cacao nibs. Tastes exactly like them, bittersweet with a slight char and earthy nuttiness. Smooth honey sweetness to finish, gelling the astringent coffee and burnt char tastes from the bitter tasting cacao nibs. I think I'd rather just eat the nibs and get the crunch factor. The beer hits some really good flavor notes, but just lack that alluring sexiness that would make me want to revisit again and again.
