O: really nice beer - people are gonna dig this

Poured from bomber into chalice
A- Poured an opaque black with a really nutty brown two-finger head. Very little to no head retention or lacing on the glass
S- The woody, oakiness hit you right away. Dark chocolate, roasted maltiness also come through in the nose.
T- Get a good bit of bitter chocolate, some coffee ground taste as well as some of the nutty maltiness from the nose. Not bad at all. Little booziness, hidden well. Very little hop presence.
M- Medium bodied, with a little of the bitter chocolate on the back end.
O- Very nice stout from a brewery, imo, has their hits and misses. Surprisingly would add this to my stout rotation. Great that its local and somewhat easy to find. Good job Bayou Teche!

look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A: The beer is jet black in color. It poured with a short tan head that died down but consistently left a short head covering the surface.
S: Moderate aromas of chocolaty malts are present in the nose.
T: Similar to the smell, the taste has lots of flavors of chocolate malts along with strong notes of roasted malts.
M: It feels medium-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer is very chocolaty, so if you like chocolate, this is a stout for you.

22 oz bomber
Description on bottle: Stout brewed with natural flavor, aged in wooden barrels.
Lots of dark chocolate that marries beautifully with oak. Espresso notes with roasty flavor kept low. Creamy mouthfeel. Alcohol well hidden. Not too big to be just a sipper.
Definitely the best I've tried so far from Bayou Teche. Once again, lots of chocolate. I am going buy a bunch more of these!

Thanks to Dan and Emma for sharing this random find.

A- Intensely black pour to a few pint glasses. Dark tan crown to over a finger with a frothy creamy texture. Silky ring remains following pretty good retention. Sparse spotty lace.

S- Roasty decadence spills out of the glass. Intends dessert/baked good like roast grains are the bulk with notes of toast, burnt cereal grains, baking cocoa and slight hops.

T- A rich roast bomb with clean yeast and a fair dose of hops in the back end. Deep cocoa powder, heavily roast cracked grains, slight burnt, caramel and earthy hops. Very clean yeast leaving the rest to shine. Slight wood presence.

MF- Thick body with a slightly oily feel and silky creaminess. Carbonation is moderate and a roasty cocoa bitterness finishes it off.

A really nice stout. I don't get much of anything from the barrels but overall it is clean and well balanced with a great cocoa emphasis.

3.8/5  rDev -5%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

Poured from a 22 oz bottle into a snifter. Acquired as an extra in a trade.

A- Oh damn.. that's oil if I've ever seen it. Pure inkjet black, thick and viscous opaque body with a small light mocha head that reduces moderately to leave no lacing.

S- coffee, root beer, vanilla, molasses, brown sugar, toffee

T- Upfront is strong raw coffee beans, on the follow through is more roasty coffee flavors, chocolate, and toasted malt. Burnt flavor on the finish, which is pleasant. No oak or wood at all present, and for that -.25.

M- The downfall of this beer. Watery for a stout, could use more body. Medium-low carbonation.

Started off awesome, ended mediocre, but still enjoyed the ride.

look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

A - Pours very black with an espresso head. Very impressive body for the style (non-RIS) and the head has tight carbonation bubbles.

S - Dark roasted malts, cocoa, dark chocolate vanilla bean and brown sugar. The oakyness of the barrel is present, but definitely not a dominate flavor.

T - Bitter dark chocolate from beginning to end. Has a smooth roasted malt profile at first with brewed coffee. The barrel comes in midway through to the end and brings in some oak and vanilla into the mix. Just like the nose, the barrel isn't the dominate part of the beer and that's okay.

M - Medium to full bodied with low carbonation. A smooth, velvety body with a wet finish.

O - I'm excited this is coming out of the next state over from me. Very impressive to say the least. It's an American Stout that really wants to be an RIS if it could.

Thanks to Dan and Emma for sharing this bomber.

Black pour, brown head. Lots of ashy Euro-esque charcoal roast and dark chocolate. Some dark fruit, brown sugar, hops, burnt toast, almost peppery-like spice. Not overtly oaky but it seems to smooth out the beer. Decent body with lowish carbonation and not much for alcohol presence. Roast bomb, some more complexities here would've been nice, but tasty and pretty drinkable.
