A nice finger of creamy head that dissipates over a few minutes, leaving little trace behind. When fresh (bomber labeled February 2017), has a strong bitter character, more from darkly roasted grains than from hops. Having had the barrel-aged variant previously, I'm disappointed in the base beer, to be honest. Perhaps time in the bottle will smooth this out, but right now, this is unbalanced, thin in the mouthfeel department, and not bringing much chocolate to the table. It's still an enjoyable stout, but it's not what I was expecting.

A bomber labeled 10th Anniversary February 2016 poured in a Prairie snifter for the review.

Look- Pours a dark oily brown leaving a generous two plus fingers of mocha foam that slowly settles to reveal some lacing.

Smell- Heavy with dark fruits including figs, dates and raisins. Tobacco and leather follow along with dark chocolate and roasted malt.

Taste- Once again dark fruit forward with tobacco, bakers chocolate and some char.

Feel- Oily and slick to start followed by a semi dry finish.

Overall- A very flavorful stout that reminds me of Stone RIS. Very big and bold which was the norm before everything was thrown in a barrel. I'm a fan and would gladly drink it again. Thanks to BA Dragginballs76 for hooking me up!

Big dark beige head, very foamy and leaving behind wicked sticky lacing. Beer itself is predictably black and opaque.

Raisin and molasses dominate the nose, obscuring anything else, save for maybe a splash of fig on exit.

Taste has a molasses thing up front with an accompanying chocolate character, finishing out ever so slightly smokey.

Chalky bitter chocolate aftertaste in this surprisingly thin stout. Overall it's pretty good but not mind melting.
