4.15/5 rDev +1.2%
Poured into a tulip. There is a nice almost two inch foamy head with a nice tan color. The body is perfectly black. The lacing is very sticky. This looks good.
The aroma has nice blend of chocolate malt with a hint of licorice.
The taste starts out with slightly sweet, creamy chocolate malt. There is a good roasted flavor in the middle, leading to a slightly hoppy finish.
This is nice and full bodied. The mouthfeel is soft and a little velvety. I really like this one. Good marks all around!

4.18/5 rDev +2%
Poured from a 64 oz brown growler into a Shaker pint. Purchased at The Lodge (Hilton Head Island, SC).
A: Black and completely light-swallowing with 1-finger cappuccino colored head even with a growler pour. The head has good retention with lace sheeting the top of the glass.
S: There is a good dose of roast, coffee, and oily dark chocolate in the aroma. There is a citrusy, floral hops note as well. There isn't a bunch of dark malt complexity however.
T: This is a very good tasting brew with roast and char being most prominent followed by bitter dark chocolate and a little bit of raisin and date dark malt flavors and a touch of dark malt sourness. There is some orange-lemon citrus with floral notes on the hops side. The alcohol adds a little bit of steely bitterness. A complete IS, but you need to like roast or you will be disappointed.
M: Full body with fairly dry finish and very active carbonation for the style. Long, long aftertaste with lingering roast and hops bitterness.
O: A fine American IS that hits a ton of different spots with the flavor. It is roast heavy, and had that been toned down, I would have liked it even more.

3.98/5 rDev -2.9%
Pours midnight black with light penetrating only the thinnest of edges. Head is mocha in color and near 2 fingers thick. Retention is above average, with a resulting lace that's thin but sticky.
Smell - Smells of subtle dark roast, chocolate, and a bit of heat shines through.
Taste - Starts with a touch of roasted malt, chocolate mocha and cream, then a huge citrus hop bitterness swoops in and takes control. Finishes strong with a lingering, sharply bitter citrus aftertaste.
Mouthfeel - Medium to full body. For a near 9%, this goes down smooth and easy. Creamy. Carbonation lends to some crispness, along with tingly lips.
Overall - I gotta be honest, for a double stout, I was expecting deeper, more darkly roasted malt, but this kicks like your regular oatmeal with a significant boost in the amount of hops. It's good, but not the 'kick in your pants' abyss deepness I was thinking it'd be. Does well to contain the high alcohol content.

4/5 rDev -2.4%
Poured a deep black hue with a one finger frothybtan head. There was good retention and lacing.
The smell featured roasted malts and smooth chocolate.
The taste consisted of chocolate malts, dry coffee and a touch of lactose.
The mouthfeel was full with a semi dry finish.
Overall a full flavored user friendly double stout.

4.03/5 rDev -1.7%
On tap at World of Beer in Raleigh; served in a snifter
A - pitch black with a thick cap of brown head that has decent retention
S - faintly roasty, faint coffee, a bit creamy
T - chocolate, coffee, roasty, faint bitterness in the finish
M - smooth, rich, well carbonated, medium bodied
There is nothing of great note here. It was an amped up version of a very traditional stout. All the flavors were there and it was highly drinkable. It's worth a try.
