A - Pours like motor oil into my snifter with a one finger dark mocha head, moderate retention and and nice rings of lace.

S - Sweet molasses, roared caramel malts, bittersweet chocolate, coffee, bourbon, vanilla and toasted oats.

T - Sweet syrupy dark chocolate, toasted oats, coffee, vanilla and a bourbon like mild alcohol presence.

M - Full body with exceptional balance, viscous and creamy.

O - This is one of my very favorite stouts, highly recommend this and doubt one would be very disappointed.

A- Pour really looks like changed motor oil after about 4,000 miles. Sludgy black, there is no light getting in here. 1 3/4 finger of creamy tan head. It lasts for awhile, tumbling down and leaves lacing down the side. Beautiful stout.

S- Charred roasty malts filled the air as soon as I poured this. Big time roast,and healthy doses of coffee and espresso. Nestle kwik powder, and more malt. No real hint of booze.

T- Everything in the nose but a little less pronounced. Charred malts, chocolate syrup, some dark fruit as well. The booze comes in the flavor unfortunately but not overbearing. Some oats on the backend.

M- This is the downfall of the brew. It's actually too thin for my liking. Low amount of carbonation felt in the mouth. A bit of dryness from the extreme roast malt.

O- Beautiful looking, great smelling, tasty stout. The mouthfeel needs some reworking however. I would like to try the barrel offerings, but I can't imagine the body holding up. I see this beer everywhere and glad I finally picked one up to try.

Goblet. Glugs out of the 22 like old, gooey coffee. No head, just a faint ring of oatmeal.

Smells of lightly charred coffee roast. Fumey dark fruit, dusty cocoa, & toasted whole wheat.

Sweet burnt nuts & toast. Coffee grounds, rich blackened fruit, fudge, & pungent bitter green hops that linger on & on. Tar.

Thick, fudge-y, & barely carbed. Hot.

Too Intense. I feel defeated. Where's my teddy bear?
