4.1/5 rDev -2.6%
thanks once again go out to beerhan! 12oz. bottled on march 11 2011. there is no way one could improve the appearance of this beer. a thick black body that sounds like used motor oil slapping into the tulip. a huge georgeous three finger mocha colored head that leaves tons of thick sticky lacing as it settles to a thin cap. smell is unique and interesting. coffee, chocolate, citrus hps and wood. taste is roasty malts, chocolate, caramel, hops and toffee, there is also a finishing touch i'm not fond of and can't quite place it. mouthfeel is excellent with a full body, great carbonation and an overall sticky feel. this is an interesting stout to say the least. i don't think i've had one with such a hop profile before, definatly interesting.

4.5/5 rDev +6.9%
Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a Sam Adams pint.
A: Pours a nearly opaque, very dark brown color with one finger of dark tan head. Very good retention and lace.
S: Mostly milk chocolate, also chickory and some floral notes-- really pleasant.
T: Starts with roasted flavors, quickly followed by milk chocolate. Sweetens a bit in the middle before finishing with bitter coffee. Tiniest hint of booze on the finish. As the beer warms, some citrus hop flavors join the mix. Good complexity.
M: Very smooth and creamy, feels great.
O: Oh my, this one is very tasty. Way too drinkable at 9.5%. Wish I could get this in Iowa, but Nebraska's not that far away. Will be bringing back more the next time I make a beer run to the West. Delicious.

Poured from a12 ounce bottle dated Sept 20, 2011 into a tulip.
A: Pitch black with a 2 finger rocky brown head. The epitome of what a stout should look like.
S: A nice roasted scent with toffee and caramel hints.
T: A nice roasted malts forefront that stays through to the finish with caramel and toffee mixed in. Slight bitterness from the hops are noted at the end.
M: Thick and creamy with almost no carbonation.
O: A very drinkable stout with good flavor. This is one of my go-to stouts for a reason.

Brown bottle dated 12/21/09 into a snifter. (Had 10/9/11)
Nose: Chocolate and a little alcohol. Deep cocoa notes. A little syrupy, but plenty inviting.
Appearance: Jet black and opaque. Very thin espresso-colored head skimmed the top briefly.
Taste: Chocolate. Chocolate. Chocolate. Burnt cocoa bitterness like Baker's chocolate. Coffee dryness balances the velvety texture.
Overall: Wow. I accidentally bought an older bottle. I haven't had the chance to play much with aging beers, but I will now. I'll have to pick up a fresh bottle and compare.

Rich and black with no opaqueness whatsoever. Dirty brown head. Smells of slight charcoal, alcohol, chocolate and coffee. Some piney hops resonate to the back of the nostrils as well.
Lacing is amazing.
Caramel and burnt coffee and black bitter chocolate malt backbone which is massive. Its balanced nicely with a burnt bitter malt presence as well as a good deal of hops that attack and destory any malty sweetness. Beautifully balanced with tons and tons of perfectly layered flavors. Simply fantastic.
Big thick and chewy mouthfeel. Such a big body.
The flavors are abundant and complex and leave you craving another sip each time you drink to find more hidden beauty within the beer.
