22 oz bottle from John's Marketplace PDX shared with neighborhood beer buddy in matching tulips 11.30.11.

Finger and a half dark cocoa brown head, a bit uneven and rocky, over dark brown/black opaque body, no visible carbonation, really nice spider legs, good retention, a really nice looking beer. Big dose of roasted malt, more coffee than chocolate in the nose, faint citrus and floral hop aromas. Taste mirrors the nose, really roasty goodness, a bit of sweetness on back end for balance. Mouthfeel is medium, smooth, almost creamy from the oats. Tasty, impressive, worth a try.

Poured into a 13 oz tulip glass. Poured pitch black, with a 3 inch mocha head, that takes sometime to settle into a solid set of bubbles. Lots of lace. Smell is chocolate, coffee, molasses, and some piny hops. Taste is all of those things, but way way more chocolate and coffee then the smell would have you expect. Fairly large body, for it's easy drinkability. Nice amount carbonation and not very dry. This is a very good stout and the price is right.

Wow, these folks nailed it. .Mine was poured from a bottle into a sniffer.

The appearance was midnight black with a dark 2 finger head. Semi soapy / semi custard.

If you took a cup of coffee beans, covered it in molasses then added malts and a sprinkle of chocolate you could duplicate this smell. I also pick up subtle hints of vanilla bean and rum.

The taste reminds me of raisins, coffee and chocolate with a malty finish.

The mouth is medium with that is carbonated just right.

I will buy this again once my fridge gets low.

I'm thankful for this beer that I drink as I review this fine Thanksgiving morning. Pours black with the faintest brown highlights at the glass' edge. Big foamy, patchy head, receding slowly and leaving stripes of lacing. Smells nice, strong roasted malts, chocolate aromas, and a touch hoppiness and faint booze.

Very big flavor here. Roasted malts and chocolate intermingling to present a nice bitterness backed up by an earthy, leafy hop bitterness. The beer has got a touch of sweetness but is probably drier than it is sweet. Full and robust, with a light carbonation. Super stout.
