Thanks to ATLCarl for this bottle, which arrived as an extra with a bunch of good southeastern beer. Had some Jailhouse when in Atlanta this summer & looking forward to trying more. 22 oz. bomber split with my wife. Bottle says 8% ABV, for what that's worth.
Pour is dead black, more than average carbonation. Nose is vast epoch of roast, cut only barely by a dying ember of smoke. Straightforward.
Breakout Stout packs roast like it's a concealed weapon. Huge roast flares up & down the palate on the first sip, almost to the point of char: it's all I can sense the first few sips. Once my tasters begin to adjust to the onslaught, the underneath beer has a milk stout feel to it. Mild chocolate, lactose lurk underneath. Very smooth, almost creamy. Finish is bitten off into a sudden dryness, which is interesting. Lovely sipping stout that could be downed in pint glasses.
This brew reminds me of a thinner, less viscous Marshall Zhukov's...of course, everything, including black dirt, is thinner that Zhukov's. If you're looking for an example of a roasty beer, look no further. Simple, direct, tasty, a very good beer.

Roasted smell chocolate some sweetness. Complex flavor dark roasyed malts at first followed by dark chocolate and a sweet finish on the back. This beer is smooth drinking while letting you know the abv is there. Leaves a mouthfeel of having consumed some really great coffee despite not really having any coffee notes. My fav jailhouse offering so far.
