4.25/5  rDev +4.7%

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.

Bottled 8/22/12.

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.

Thanks to Rutager for this one.

Poured from a bomber, bottled 112612.

Appearance: A very massive, cascading head that has halfway brown color (not too light, not too dark). Body is a dark brown color and the retention is excellent.

Smell: Cocoa, raisins, alcohol-soaked nuts, wisps of coffee beans. Shy, not an overt aroma.

Taste: Smooth coffee at first, ground coffee beans, an alcoholic nut flavor, mild raisins and ends with a very bitter-sweet chocolate.

Mouthfeel: Very smooth texture, low carbonation, midway there's a roasted bitterness.

Overall: The finish is quite intense, like a very strong & bitter coffee. Not top shelf but pretty good for me.
