2.48/5  rDev -35.9%
look: 4.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 2 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2

A: Pours black with two fingers of khaki head that recedes into a creamy cap with good lacing.

S: Lots of roasted malts with creamy chocolate notes and some lightly bitter aromas.

T: Lots of roasted malts here as well. Bitter, burnt coffee and char, mostly. Slight alcohol burn on the finish.

M: Medium-thick body with medium carbonation, this beer has a somewhat watery finish.

O: Overally, not a very good stout. Too bitter tasting with a watery body. Not repulsive, but the second half of the bomber met my drain.

Thanks to Bobby for sharing this one.

A: The beer pours an almost black color with a finger of khaki head.

S: Woah, lots of butter on the nose. A bit of a graham cracker note, which is actually sort of nice. Roasted malt and dark chocolate are also there, but the butter keeps on creeping back in.

T: Lots of roasted malt character to the nose. A bit of ash and burnt coffee, which is sort of unpleasant. There is a hint of butter, some graham cracker, and a little bit of vanilla.

M: Medium in body and carbonation.

O: Way too much diacetyl to this. Ruins the beer before it has a chance.

Bottle thanks to Grant, drank from a tulip... Pours a light black color, some dark brown and amber on the fringes. The head is a nice medium mocha, creamy, looks good if not for the soft black... The aroma is decent, lots of roasted coffee which is pretty nice, but not really balanced with anything else, so a touch boring. I want to like this, gotta me give more... The taste is borderline bad as that coffee comes out in full force, this is extremely bitter stale coffee. Some light alcohol and vanilla come through.... The mouthfeel is off, bitter and overcarbonated... The group quickly moved on from this, not very good. I was excited to try this, very disappointed.

Bottle contributed by jrallen34 as we were watching Fedor get his clock cleaned.

A - A little bit lighter colored than I would like to see in a stout (although it is a single so not a big deal), but it does have a great tan colored head that had some fine bubbles to it.

S - This is really a bigtime coffee stout, as there is just tons of coffee on the nose. Some burnt cocoa flavor, but kind of a one-trick pony here.

T - Taste is not as good as the nose, which is not a good thing as the nose isn't great. Really just a bunch of coffee with some char and herbal notes that aren't really working for the style. Don't care much for it.

M - Probably the worst part about this, too much carbonation makes a coffee beer seem really cheap and bad.

D - A good looking, but average at best tasting, beer, that I will gladly pass on. The mouthfeel does a lot to kill this beer, unfortunately.

look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

Poured from a 22oz bottle into an oversized snifter. OG is 19, IBUs register at 45 according to the bottle. An 8% abv stout by Jailhouse Brewing out of Hampton, GA. Picked it up in ATL during a work trip in May of this year. Drinking on 8/22/11.

Pours with 1/4 inch of foam, reducing to lily pads of tan bubbles. Body is thick as night - can't see through this one at all.

Aroma of roasted toffee character. Chocolate is present and bready malts sneak through as well. No hop presence in the nose.

Tastes of chocolate in the forefront with a surprising hoppy hint in the finish. Not usually a fan of bitter ending stouts, but this is ok. Thin mouthfeel is a slight disappointment, and I think the sweet flavors are competing a bit too much with the roast characters and hop bitterness. There is a lot going on here; not necessarily a bad thing though. Quite complex.

With all of the Barrel-aged, spices-added, double chocolate, high abv % nutso stouts being thrown at us these days, it's hard to differentiate between what's average, what's good, and what's mind-blowing. Granted its all objective according to our palates, but this beer just does not stand out among the crowd. Many BA'ers bars have been set by the Zhukovs, the Dark Lords, the Abyss'...and so on and so on. It's unfair to compare, but that said - this stout simply doesn't shine for me. Hate to call it run-of-the-mill ... but I must.

Overall a solid offering but one that I won't reach for again.This would get higher marks from me if the viscosity been a bit thicker. Mouthfeel was just a bit too thin for my liking. A nice brew from Georgia though, and I hope they continue to create and flourish.

On tap poured into a pint glass.

Pours a pitch black with a small dark brown head with lots of lacing. Nose is malty, chocolate, and a bit smoky.

Taste is fantastic a well. Smooth an rich, very creamy and lots of smokey. Mouthfeel is light and rich with a light bitterness fr the dark malts. Very drinkable and tasty.
