Batch #4, bottled 4/22/12, 7.1% ABV

A: Pours dark brown with a big dense light brown head. Fades slowly, leaving almost no lacing at all oddly enough.

S: Smells mainly like dark chocolate plus a little coffee and some chicory and ginger.

T: Dark chocolate up front, followed by coffee and spicy chicory. Ends with more chocolate (a little creamier this time). Lingering spices (there's the ginger), chicory and some earthiness in the aftertaste.

M: Somewhat thin, but otherwise smooth.

O: Decent stout, not a big fan of chicory myself so that definitely detracts. Pretty simple otherwise, mostly a chocolately stout but not too strong of a flavor either. Kinda has a belgian-style twist with the spices and the earthiness.

3.59/5  rDev +4.4%
look: 4.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

A: Pours a deep dark brown color with a bubbly one finger tan head. Leaves some swathes of lace on the surface, but settles fairly quickly.

S: Lots of roasted malt and chicory with a hint of ginger lurking in the background. Faint Mexican chocolate, chipotle and freshly ground coffee. The smells meld together a little strangely, but I have hope for this.

T: A lot of chicory, almost overwhelmingly so. Some day old coffee and a kind of strange roasty sourness going into the finish. Not picking up much from the cocoa nibs at all here. Mouthfeel is a touch overcarbonated and brings out the chicory just a little too much. I really want to try more from these guys, but this one didn't knock it out of the park.

3.56/5  rDev +3.5%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

4 ounce pour directly at the brewery.

Pours a very dark and opaque color. Chicory, smoke, cocoa and mild marshmallow are in the flavor as well as the aroma. Body is medium at best, lacks the fullness i like in a stout. Does have a bit of a chewy feel to it.

Serving type: on-tap
