Black colored beer with a small brown colored head.
Smells strongly of chocolate and caramel. Slight aroma of apple and toasted coconut. Sligt coffee aroma.
Starts out strongly tasting of chocolate and it is a little sweet. Mildly bittersweet taste. Coconut and caramel it tastes vaguely like a Mounds candy bar. Can't taste alcohol but it is sensed as a slight sting. Tasty yet mild tasting could pass for a Milk Stout.
Mouthfeel is full.
Overall a very tasty stout. Not quite a match for Stone RIS though.

Long time want from Doodler. Cheers!
From a bomber into a snifter

APPEARANCE: A black pour is relatively thick and yields a two finger, medium looking, fluffy and creamy, dark tan head with excellent retention. Jet black body with very high levels of carbonation visible for the style. Head fades to a good foam cap and clings to the sides of the glass. A splotchy wisp remains until the end and leaves some decent lacing on the glass. A bit too much carbonation for the style, but really nice otherwise.
SMELL: Roasted grain, dark, baker's chocolate, some sweet cream and vanilla notes. Bold stuff. Still some hops left here as well. Pretty good.
TASTE: Roasted malts, dark chocolate and some alcohol up front. Big and lingering finish of dark, bitter baker's chocolate and fudge, light vanilla cream, sweet dark fruit and a touch of alcohol on the palate. Some caramel sweetness lingers on the palate as well.
PALATE: Medium body and medium levels of carbonation. Slightly light on the palate, semi-creamy, goes down fine and finishes sticky. Some heat lingers.
OVERALL: Really nice and would gladly drink again. Lots of good flavors and aromas with a nice look and decent-enough feel. A touch light perhaps, but that's a minor issue. Good beer. Cheers again Doodler!

Squatters Outer Darkness pours a black color with a small tan head. There is a sweet and full black licorice. The taste is sweet with lots of black licorice flavors, and a strange "spice" note that is enjoyable. Good full flavors good body. Overall a very nice flavorful and sweeter stout.
