Bought a bomber at my local bottle shop.
A- Good looking stout. It pours very dark, essentially black. A nice, full, dense head that is a fairly dark brown. The head dissipates within a minute or two with nice lacing on the glass.
S-Pretty good aroma. Smells of mocha and some nuttiness, but with a very nice malty body. Can't smell any hops or much alcohol on the back end.
T-The mocha, coffee like flavor hits immediately with the alcohol taking over soon thereafter. The alcohol is a bit overbearing and it lingers for a significant period of time after it goes down. The body doesn't have much sweetness to it in order to help mask some of the strong alcohol flavors.
M-The body does not live up to what the aroma promises. The beer feels unnaturally light going down with the alcohol overpowering the rest of the flavors. Alcohol lingers at the end.
D-I expected much more from this beer. Not something I would purchase again, whether it be in a bottle or on tap anywhere.
Serving type: on-tap

Thanks to BuckeyeNation for this quote: "I will make it a felony to drink small beer"
-King Henry VI, part II (act iv, scene ii)
A: Black, heavy without highlights, abundant dark tan, rocky head, not so much lacing.
S: Hoppy stout, ala Boris. Serious char, wood, chocolate, latte.
T: Taste is intense. Espresso like with hops. Grass, hay, wood, charcoal, coffee. wine-like. This is a great stout with great intensity. meditation beer.
MF: Creamy, dense, woody, flinty, good feel. Not as oily as TedFidy, similar to Boris, Narwhal.
One of my favorites. (But I love hoppy stouts). Best from Rogue.
