2.39/5  rDev -30.3%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 2.25 | feel: 2 | overall: 2

The 22 oz. bottle was brought over by a friend. The cap is dipped in what could be wax, a bit difficult to open and some clean up afterwards. I was hoping the effort was worthwhile. It poured black into a 12 oz. glass, the head lite, lacking the richness I was expecting. Aroma simple, I drew in more smell through my nostrils waiting for the blast from the 12 gauge stout, nothing but a whimper no complex aromatics. The first few swallows left the palette wanting. Where was the richness, the taste of dark chocolate, toasted caramel malt, bittersweet coffee? I splashed more into my mouth thinking my receptors for taste had missed something the first time, the results were the same. Very simple, as complex as a round stone. Hoping for better, this 12 gauge missed fired.. Cheers

From: The Taphouse in Boise, Idaho
Price: $5
Purchased: Dec. 19, 2013

Misc.: 2012 batch

Poured a pitch black color with one finger of tan head when I got it. Uneven spots of lacing with below average retention.

Smelled chocolate, Jack Daniels, dark chocolate, caramel and faint molasses.

Tasted a little smoother than the smell. Caramel, chocolate, toffee, chocolate milk, dark chocolate and light coffee beans.

Full body. Creamy texture. Average carbonation. Long, smooth finish.

So smooth and very good overall.

3.75/5  rDev +9.3%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

On-tap @ Gernika's, Boise ID. Served in a snifter.

A: Dark, opaque black body with a small amount of tan head.

S: Roasted barley, caramel, dark chocolate, hints of molasses and leather.

T: More darker/toasted caramel and chocolate; more sweet than roasted but not over-the-top sweet by any means.

MF: Fuller-bodied with low carbonation.

O: A decent drinker, a quality big stout without the bells or whistles. Alcohol is well-hidden.
