Pretty stoked to get my hands on this. First time I have seen the COAY in the Buffalo area, we have had many Great Divide beers for some time but never this one. Pours dark as night with about one finger of mocha colored head. No visible carbonation to speak of and a small amount of light lace. The smell is somewhat vague but as it warms a bit it gets pretty interesting. BURNT dark chocolate is heavy on the nose, and I can't think of any other way to put it but it smells like weed to me. Very sure of it. Very complex scent. Tastes somewhat like it smells with a bit more hop presence and some nice hints from the pepper, adds some complexity, but once again there is a hint of marijuana in the taste as well. Strangest flavor combination I may have ever encountered in a beer. Mouthfeel is pleasant and smooth. Good amount of carbonation but the flavors leave some bitterness on the palate. Overall I am glad I got to try this but I can say I will not be revisiting. Not that it was unpleasant it was just so uniq and not what I look for in a stout. The flavor and scent of this beer is reason enough to pick it up and try it.
