Bottle poured into a BarrelHouse Brewing Co pint glass

A: Pours dark as midnight, no light passes through, with a rich brown head that settles and laces reasonably well.

S: Dark chocolate, maybe some light maple syrup, a bit earthy, with notable alcohol.

T: Big chocolate up front, dark malt sweetness, a bit earthy, the alcohol is noticeable throughout, especially as it warms. It almost has a bourbon barrel aged quality to it.

M: Full body, relatively low carbonation, pretty creamy, with some warmth.

O: The potential is there for this one if it's given a chance to age and mellow out a bit, but for now it's just too hot with the alcohol. (649 characters)

Poured from a bomber into a snifter. Beer is jet black with a very bright white head. I found the smell to be decent but the taste was very odd. The only thing I could compare it to was nail polish. The beer hurt to drink. Tioga sequoia makes awesome beers with Rush Hour being better than any other coffee stout/porter out there but this one was very unpleasant. If you have one then maybe some age will smooth it out a little. (428 characters)

Chocolate, malty, roasted notes. A pretty good balanced taste not that boozy not sure when it was bottled but comparing this to their Mocha Midnight that one for me was better than this. But this one is good as well (215 characters)

I find this to be an above average stout. Lots of roasted tones, nice body and feel. Did show some alcohol taste, but not enough to be a turn off. Definately worth a try (169 characters)
