Very good stout. Nothing particularly unique, but more of an excellent execution of the caramelized-malt / coffee stout.

Bottle poured into a glass

Appearance- very dark, a finger or two of relatively dark tan head. Little lacing.

Smell- heavy on caramel, coffee, with hints of vanilla and a few other flavors hiding behind the caramel/coffee that I couldn't directly identify, but somehow made the overall scent more rich and complex.

Taste- Similar to the smell, with the dark malt dominating. Good aftertaste of vanilla and faint notes of roasted sweet spices. The flavors hidden in the scent are more obvious on the tongue, getting some sweetness and for some reason a hint of browned butter. Pulling together nicely

Mouthfeel- Lingers without being bitter; different flavors come out between the taste and the aftertaste. A little heavy, but the caramel makes that quite enjoyable.

Overall- Very happy with this beer! Going to pick up some more once I find a reasonable price.

Bottled on 1-14-14

Pours an effervescent ebony with a thumb of caramel colored head. Above average head retention & lacing

S: Carob, raisins, & leafy hops

T: Follows the nose, a little bit of plum & cocoa also up front. Some charred grain as this warms, along with roastyness & more carob & figs, faint smokeyness too. Finishes dry, fruity & a slight charrd grain flavor

MF: Fairly thick, slight carbonation

A solid stout, drinkable enough

A- Pours a thin looking dark brown with a decent amount of light showing through. Not much head to speak of. I turned my head and it was gone.

S- Lots of roasted malt and nutty aroma. Poor mans Black Butte is what it seems like to me. Faint lactose and cocoa in the background.

T- An upgrade of sorts over the nose. Flavor is similar, but with a sweet note in the finish. Some licorice and toasted aggressiveness.

M- Much too thin. This is more like a weak ass porter than that of a stout. Feel is important to me in a stout, and this one is thin, watery, and pathetic.

O- I could say average, but in all honesty, it is a step below that by today's standards.

3.58/5  rDev -4.8%

A: Dark. Black. Thick as tar with a very nice and thick light brown foam head. Good look for a stout. S: Nice rich smell. Inviting. T: A bit of a letdown. Had a very tangy taste. A little on the watery side. M: Tied to taste, weird tangy taste. O: Decent Stout. Worth a try, but ultimately forgettable with all the better offerings out there. A little let down. I expect more from R.J Rocker.

3.81/5  rDev +1.3%

Appearance: Dark red on the pour and heavy, coffee black once in the glass. No foam, but lacing is light to moderate.

Smell: Chocolate with a hint of molasses. Not terribly unique, but it hits all the right notes.

Taste/Mouthfeel: Bitter coffee with a hint of licorice and very slight hint of mint. Fairly subtle with a peppery mouthfeel.

Overall Drinkability: A decent stout, a good beer with a few great qualities.
