3.58/5  rDev -4%
look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

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 +2.1%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

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.

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

Served from tap into a shaker. Poured pitch black with a half finger tan head that subsided to a minimal amount very slowly. Maintained decent lacing throughout the glass. The aroma was comprised of sweet malt, roasted malt, earth, and subtle nuttiness. The flavor was of sweet malt, roasted malt, nutty, caramel, cream, and earth. It had a medium feel on the palate with medium carbonation. Overall this was a pretty decent brew. This brew really does hit the spot for the style. While it is not overly complex, all of the flavors present have a complimentary aspect going on that makes it quite easy to drink and rather enjoyable. A solid offering from the crew at Rockers.

A: Pours an opaque yet still clear jet black in color with light to moderate amounts of active visible carbonation along the edges of the glass and a hint of dark cola brown highlights. The beer has a finger tall dense foamy tan head that slowly reduces to a very thick film covering the entire surface of the beer and a thick ring at the edges of the glass. Significant amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Moderate aromas of dark roasted malts with just the finest hint of charred malts. That is followed by light to moderate aromas of dark chocolate and just a hint of nuts.

T: Upfront there is a moderate flavor of lightly roasted malts with a hint of charred malts. That is followed by a light to moderate flavor of dark chocolate and just a hint of nuttiness. Finally, there is a very light amount of earthy hops which imparts a light amount of lingering bitterness.

M: Medium to full bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation. Hints of dryness in the finish.

O: Pretty easy to drink with well hidden alcohol. Enjoyable but nothing out of this world or really special, though a solid every day stout.

2.98/5  rDev -20.1%
look: 2.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 1.75 | overall: 2.5

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.
