64oz growler. HUGE thanks to Stakem for gifting me with the remnants of this. Pours black with a thin mocha head. Just some thin ringing around the edges for retention and lace. Pretty dead looking overall. The aroma is a rich mix of coffee, caramel, cocoa and vanilla. A dark fruit component is sticking out to me as well. I’m even getting a bit of that peanut flavor. This is mostly sweet in the nose but there’s definitely a dark edge to this too. The taste is similar, being sticky up front with an extremely sweet mix of chocolate, vanilla and syrup. Roasted coffee bitterness and some earthy citrus (even dark fruit) character help take some of that sweet edge off. Peanut butter is present and hangs in the finish with that leftover sweetness (and seems to come out the more you let this sit in your mouth). The mouthfeel is fuller bodied but sadly fairly flat, although there is soft chewy carbonation that is still present. Adam had warned me that the carbonation here was pretty much DOA right off the bat, so I was at least expecting it. I will say that the big 10% is extremely well hid. This is a smooth sipper. This was interesting. While it definitely didn't blow my socks off, it isn't quite the train wreck that this could have easily have been either. Thanks again for the share Adam. I know this wasn't a cheap growler to acquire.

Thanks to BA tenderbranson by way of BA Slatetank for getting this growler to me. Poured into a matching TH oversized wine glass. The brew appears dark brown in color with lighter brown around the edges almost like cola or root beer in appearance but quite hazed. A finger of tan head fades back quickly to a thin film. A swirl hardly releases a few bubbles but places some spots of lace on the glass.

The aroma is sweet with an earthen aspect that blends into coffee, chocolate and vanilla. There is a bit of citrus component present and I am stretching to say that part of the roasted grain element faintly seems like peanut butter but without knowing that was an ingredient, I dont think I would know its there. When deeper whiffs are taken, the alcohol has a solvent to fusel aspect.

The flavor is sweet and full almost sticky with a chewy feel of vanilla before blending into milk chocolate. The roast component hints towards citrus with a mineral aspect towards the back. There is a mild fruity alcohol note that once blended with the residual sweetness and vanilla almost gives a cola sort of flavor to this brew just like the aroma hinted towards.

This is a full bodied brew that is slick and smooth with a chewy feel. The carbonation leaves a lot to be desired as it is way too low. The lack of bubbles inhibits the flavors from really blending and rolling across the tongue like they possibly could have. This brew screams vanilla and even possibly marshmallow fluff. The chocolate roast is faint as well as the coffee inclusion. The peanut butter is seemingly completely lost in flavor but present somewhat in the aromatics. Overall I would call this brew interesting on paper and creative to let your fans pick the adjuncts. But this is collectively pretty much a failure in my glass. I wanted to like this beer, I really did. But paying $35 for 2 liters of this has been the dumbest choice I have made in awhile.

Thanks to tenderbranson69 for sharing this at the Dusty Sheep grand opening my first Beer enjoyed on my birthday!

The color is pitch black with thin ring of med brown which settles quickly. The opacity is inidicative of a rich stout. The smell has a lot going on -vanilla and coffee are the dominant with sweet malt odor. The feel is strong with roasted malt and caramel sweetness with a dry alcoholic finish.

The taste is like having dessert with vanilla and cocoa with some coffee acidity and mild caramel malt sweetnes. The flavor ends on the dry side with some warming alcohol and the flavor has a dark toffe taste with some residual sugar in the taste. The overall impression is this is a pretty tasty stout...lots of things to chew on and it has a pretty full presence with the added flavoring. I would definitely try this again -great stout.
