Poured into a Due South Brewing Co. snifter. Back label says BTLD 031213.
A- Pours a deep jet black color with a 1/2 inch brown head that retains a bit before soon becoming a thick ring around the edge of the glass and a bubbly patch of surface foam. Non-resilient lacing slides quickly down the glass leaving a jagged ring behind.
S- Dark chocolate aroma that's barely sweet with lots of dark roast coming out. Notes of coffee, molasses and a tinge of alcohol.
T- Very hearty flavor with plenty of dark roast but isn't harsh or charry. There's a moderate bitterness coming through but, unfortunately, also a not-so-moderate alcohol flavor especially in the aftertaste.
M- Lightly creamy afterfeel with medium carbonation and a body that could honestly be a bit more full.
O- If it wasn't for the excessive amount of heat in the flavor, this would be a great stout. Somewhat of a letdown.

Served from a growler into a nonic glass
A- Poured black with huge fluffy mocha colored head that left glass coating lace
S- Big roasted malt and smokiness, coffee and chocolate notes. Very pleasant aroma
T- Big roasted malt, smokiness, coffee notes, and breadiness. Some cocoa, caramel, and mineral presence. A slight twangy fruity note on the finish.
M- Soft carbonation, dry, medium to fuller bodied, very smooth
O- Really nice stout with quite a bit of smokiness that made for a very nice touch, more smokiness than an beer outside of a rauchbier that I have had.

bomber split, thanks Louie
a: served in a standard pint glass, the stout appears black, with some deep browns showing around the edges, a good mocha head to start falls back to a low level of retention
s: at first sniff the aroma is rich, but maintains a smooth balance of chocolate, roast, burnt sugars, and an earthy, grassy hop aroma
m: carbonation light to moderate, medium-full in body
t: dark chocolate and burnt sugars on the tongue, rich and creamy with sweet roasted flavors, hops earthy with a touch of grass, moderately bitter with long lingering roasts, flavorful and supremely balanced
o: a very well-brewed little stout, lots of character and everything seems to work towards the whole, drinks easily

Thanks to MaxStout for sharing this one at jmgrub's birthday tasting.
Pours an almost opaque super dark brown with a foamy dark khaki head that settles to wisps of film on top of the beer. Small dots of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of dark roasted malt, cocoa, and slight coffee. Taste is much the same with cocoa and cookie dough flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of roasty bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a good level of carbonation with a crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a good beer that is tasty and easy to drink.
