4.5/5  rDev +13.4%
look: 5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5

From the 651 (yup) ml. bottle. Sampled on February 14, 2014. Served around 50 degrees. Thanks BK.

Beautiful 5 out of 5 black pour with a tremendous tan head that slowly drizzles back with clinging lacing and winding up as a ring around the glass. Never disappears entirely.

Definite aroma of milk chocolate, dark roasted barley malts, oatmeal, and an earthy hop character.

The body is smooth sailing and in the medium to bold range.

There is a slight bitter bite that sneaks up on the backside in the flavor after being first influenced by the chocolate and dark malty character. But the bitterness captures my attention at the end. Extremely nice beer.

4.14/5  rDev +4.3%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Appearance thick dark black with a small tan collar leaving scattered lace.

Smell is rich chocolate, a little buttery. A little chalky.

Taste is rich, roasty, a little chocolate, some diacetyl, but providing more depth than detraction. Big stout. More of that chalkiness that I like, like on bakers.

Mouthfeel is smooth and viscous, but with some crispness to the carbonation, and an odd lightness to the body, relatively.

Drinkability is pretty solid. Very big flavors, but some smoothness. And in spite of the depth, there's a lightness to it that makes drinkable. But the richness is such that it's not sessionable.

Thanks to BeerKangaroo for this one.

Poured from the bomber into a tulip glass. This is a lovely beer; deep, dark brown with a nice tan head.

Not a lot of aroma, what little I get is mostly chocolate.

The taste is excellent. Tons of bitter dark chocolate, some roast coffee and rich malts. There is a lingering chocolate bitterness as well.

The mouthfeel may be the best part of this beer. Some tingling on the tongue and VERY smooth and creamy.

This is a great sipper and a very nice stout that I'm glad I got to try.

3.95/5  rDev -0.5%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.75

bomber into an olde hickory snifter.

pours a dark black with a nice inch and a half thick beige head. the aroma is filled with roasted malts and loads of chocolate. the taste is quite nice and warming. lots of oat characteristics , tad of dark chocolate, great winter beer. knock on this would be its quite thin...even thinner than youd expect for a 7.25%er. ABV is undetectable.

overall very great flavor and easy to down quickly, but a very thin body detracts from the overall appeal to me.

3.66/5  rDev -7.8%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

Poured into a Reuben's Brew snifter. Pours a very dark brown, appearing opaque black in the glass. Light patchy brown foam with a thin ring around the glass. Light aroma of sweet toasted malt, hints of chocolate and lactose. Flavor is toasted malt with light char, chocolate, and light coffee, finish is coffee and grassy hop bitterness with only light malt support. Medium bodied. Hits all the American stout points, leaning towards the drier, hoppier end of the spectrum. I'd like to have had a bit more malt depth in the taste and particularly the finish, but still found this to be a nice hoppy stout with a good balance in the char in the malt.

I like this stout a lot. Had to look at label again after tasting as it has a certain campfire taste.

Gorgeous dark brown with a nice 1" tan foam that goes into a soapy lacing.

Smells of dark roasted malts, vanilla, bread.

Tastes so damn good. Roasted malts into a dark chocolate and deep roasted coffee bean along with toast and some bitter hops and some spiciness to balance it all together.

Medium mouthfeel, creamy, rich and lingering.

Overall would bang again without a problem.
Thanks kangarooadam
