I got a growler filled at the Whole Foods on the Lower East Side of NYC.
A: A nice, dark stout with a nice creamy head formed at the end of the pour.
S: It smells like, what else, chocolate - the best way to describe the scent is that it's very similar to a 70% cocoa chocolate bar.
T: While the chocolate flavor is very strong, it's not nearly as strong a flavor as it was a scent. It tastes like very good bittersweet chocolate.
M: Thinner than most stouts but leaves a wonderful chocolate aftertaste on the tongue.
D: Very drinkable - the chocolate aroma and flavor does way too good a job at masking the fact that it's an 11% ABV beer.
Serving type: growler

This one pours a pure blackness that is dark as the darkest night with no moon or stars. There is a moderate thickness to the head that is rich and pillowy and tan that settles extremely slowly and leaves a shallow ring down the glass as opposed to lacing.
The nose is a fruity bourbon with notes of chocolate, coffee, anise, cardamon, vanilla, toast and raspberries.
The taste is very sharp and the alcohol has a definite bite that combines with the hops to attack the palate and dominate then gives way to a very complex smokey malt filled with a variety of flavors of smoke, bourbon, apples, bananas, coffee, chocolate, vanilla with a subtle peppery tinge in the finish.
The moutfeel is fairly creamy and the beer is a heavy one, especially for an American Stout.
Overall this is an exceptional stout that is very easy to enjoy. I found it went extremely well with some sushi.
