A: black beer capped with a dark brown foam two fingers-high; thick lace left behind
S: dark roasted malts and cocoa; wet chocolate powder and cold espresso
T: bittersweet and smooth right off the bat, with a nice chocolaty vibe and plenty of bittersweet dark chocolate flavor; espresso and coffee flavors just below
M: smooth and mellow, mildly bitter but with a little drying of oak and wood on the finish; medium-full bodied for the style; creamy
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!

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!

3.8/5 rDev -4.8%
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.

4.04/5 rDev +1.3%
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.
