Notes/Commercial Description:
Like its namesake, this beer is something you could get tangled up in. Brewed year-round and especially popular during the colder months, this beer combines unique ingredients including roasted chocolate malt, flaked oats, cinnamon, licorice root and Long Island apples . . culminating in a savory full-bodied malty goodness, and finishing with a hardy bite.

How stoked was I to find this on nitro-tap at Beer City for the GSB tasting.

A - Pours midnight black. A bubbly mocha foam rests on top. No lacing at all.

S - Smells very chocolatey. A scent of coffee as well (just like Dunkin Donuts coffee). And aroma of roasted malts.

T - This is why we need to support our local breweries! This tastes as good as many of the big stouts in the top 100. Very smoky, with flavors of cocoa and coffee. An extremely complex stout that has a roasted malt overload. Nice!

M - A little astingent at the end, but otherwise smooth and as enjoyable as a nice cigar.

O - I think this is a very good stout, and probably my favorite from Great South Bay. I'll be drinking this again.

Didn't realize I reviewed this beer (from growler) before but here goes my draught version.

A pours a pitch black color with a tight tan head leaving some nice lacing.

The aroma is of roasted malt, wet wood and some chocolate. A nice aroma but not all that strong.

This stout has some nice flavor. Big chocolate flavor, nice roasted malt, some ash, a bit o meat and scorched caramel. Large flavors and props for being a respectable 6.5%ABV.

Moderate feel a bit light for the style. Tingly carbonation. Starts sweet but finishes with a roasty bitterness.

Good stout, some nice enjoyable flavors. Drinks well though bitterness is a bit astringent.

12oz bottle poured into Tulip. ... $2 for the bottle.

A- Dark... not black motor oil... more of a very dark brown... aggressively poured and got a huge and beautiful 1 and a half inch mocha toffee colored head.. lasted a good amount, more than expected. Left some lacing and a thin ring around the edges.

S- roast, coffe oats, apple, chocolate. Has a very good smell to it. Nothing world class and a little light but nothing dreadfull. The apple plays a good role in the smell and is unique. I was looking for it tho as it states it on the label.

T- nice and oaty with a slight sweetness (I'm guessing from the apples) at the forefront with the coffe roast coming in boldly midway through. . With a slight touch of chocolate.. it says on the label it has liquorice root and cinnamon but I couldn't detect them in the smell or the taste....

M- A tad thin... great carbonation non sticky and smooth and creamy.. but slightly wateryI imo...

O- Great South Bay makes some pretty good brews.. at 6.5% you can have a bunch of these and be good....and there not bad at $12 a sixer... its better than what I expected and something I wouldn't be concered about recommending. Would be so good if it were barell aged in some way but still damn good....

A: The beer is jet black in color. It poured with a half finger high dark tan colored head that died down, leaving a collar around the edge of the glass and a small patch of bubbles in the center.
S: Light to moderate aromas of chocolate malts are present in the nose.
T: The taste is similar to the smell, but has stronger flavors of chocolate malts and is more complex with notes of roasted malts and hints of apples and licorice. No alcohol is perceptible.
M: It feels a bit more than medium-bodied on the palate with a slight amount of smoothness and has a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer is much more flavorful and fuller in body compared to other beers in the style.

On draft at the brewery.

Poured a deep black hue with a one and a half finger frothy tan head. There was very good retention and lacing.

The smell featured lactose, licorice and roasted malts.

The taste consisted of a form roasted malt with a soft lactose sweetness and touch of licorice spice.

The mouthfeel was toward the fuller side of the style.

Overall a complex and flavorful stout.

Had on tap at Bellport Beer tasting, I'll say right up front this beer was really really good. Wonderful aromas of dark chocolate and toasted oats. Big and malty, bittersweet, and a kiss of hops, with a bit of cinnamon rounded this beer out. The brewer said there was even Long Island apples thrown in the mix. Wow, I cannot wait to get this again. This new brewery is going to have a lot of fans.

Reviewed from notes.

Pours a nice roasted black color with a short mocha head that continues for quite a bit throughout. The nose is dark chocolate and cocoa powder along with some lightly-roasted malt. The taste is a bit one-dimensional with some chocolate character. It's pretty nice, there's just not much going on. The feel is nice and full with really nice carbonation. Drinks quite well and is a solid offering from them. Glad I got to try this.

Appearance: Poured into a pint glass from 12 oz bottle. Head retention was better with a slightly more aggressive pour, but still not much to speak of on the froth side of things.

Smell: Stout-like chocolates and coffee notes, but with fruit

Taste: Expectations of a stout are met and then messed with. Sweet gets a little tart, kind of like with dark chocolate. Final last impression, however, felt like cola...in a good way...that glass bottle syrupy old-school cola that went perfectly with licorice.

Overall: I have stouts that I enjoy more than this, but I would pair this with a lot of nice hearty fall soups, potatoes, and holiday pies. At 6.5% it's a good session stout as long as your session never involves driving.

this one recently hit the bottling line and then shelves so wanted to check in and see how the bottles are...enjoyed from a bay fest taster pint.

a - brew poured a deep jet black with a thin grey white head that was gone relatively quick leaving nothing more than a ring of head on the surface. swirling the glass brought things back to life momentarily but lacing was non-existent since the beer is so slippery and oily on the glass.

s - really nice roast with chocolate chips on top. almost bark like with some soft charcoal notes.

t/m - taste matches the nose...but with a bit of oat for fullness. very much like a roasted chocolate infused oatmeal stout, but just a bit thinner than an oatmeal stout. easy drinking and on the lighter end of the stout spectrum while staying away from the char of a porter.

o - overall a nice easy drinking stout. shining like a star in the world of stouts is almost as hard as shining like a star in the world of ipas...while this stout does not shatter my universe with awesomeness, it certainly is a very well rounded, easy drinking lighter stout perfect for these november nights. a job well done.
