4.5/5 rDev +20%
22oz bottle purchased at Winooski Beverage Warehouse, Winooski, VT.
Poured into an imperial pint glass, formed a 1+" brown head over the opaque dark brown/black brew. Head slowly dwindles throughout the drinking experience, and coral-like lace formation appear along the sides of the glass. Aroma is roasty dark malts, with coffee essence lurking about as well. Taste is upfront with some coffee bitterness, mellows with some sweetness, and then closes with a general dark malt aftetaste. Mouthfeel is great, just seems like it could use a bit more chewiness for a 5, and drinkability is superb. Was pleasantly surprised by this brew, and you should give it a try as well.

Pours a jet black with a nice, dense, chocolate milk colored head. Lacing is nice as well is retention.
Smell is roasted grains, chocolate, coffee, a bit of hops and a bit fruity.
Taste is a bit hoppy with loads of roasted coffee and grains. Chocolate takes a back seat to the roasted character of this beer. Fruitiness is present, but not particularly well flushed out. This one is incredibly roasty and makes itself known.
The roastiness kind of makes this one hard to drink, at least for me, while it was cold. As it warms to room temp, however, it is quite enjoyable, even if not as smooth as some other stouts.
Overall, a very good Irish Dry, but as far as american stouts go I personally would prefer this to be just a little bit sweeter. Beggers, however, can't be choosers, and this is a pretty darn good beer no matter how you look at it.

So stoked to see this in a bottle finally!
This gnarly stout pours out a blackness with a huge deep tan head. Dry. Coffee flavor comes through along with some thick malt goodness and a touch of burnt even. Did I mention dry? Ok, but the mouthfeel actually works! When the sip is over you're not gasping for water, your happy to take your time an get another sip in that good old mouth of yours because you know that your mouth deserves it. This is hands down one of the best beers to come out of the green mountains, so check it out soon while the bombers last.
