Cola brown, with a thin tan ring.

Cola smell, with some smoke, and nondescript spice.

Taste is charred malt, chocolate, hint of smoke, and maybe some nuttiness. Not much going on really, but it has a frothiness to it.

First time I have had this one in awhile. Still a very solid stout. Tons of cocoa. Not bitter at all. More like Nesquick or Swiss Miss hot chocolate. Just a touch of sweetness from the honey. Smooth, medium body.

12oz bottle poured into a pint glass
A: Very dark brown with a 1/2-finger head
S: Tons of chocolate/cocoa powder, and chocolate malt. Almost like a malted hot chocolate
T: Chocolate malt, cocoa, burnt cocoa, a hint of hops and earth
M: Medium-bodied, a touch bitter
O: I really like the nose. The honey doesn't come through that much but this beer really showcases how cocoa notes can simultaneously complement and be highlighted by everything else going on in the beer

Look - Watery black body. Medium tan head and dissipated quickly. Little lacing.

Smell - Honey. Apples. Chocolate. Coffee.

Taste - It advertises honey but it reminded me of Mott's Apple Juice. This initial apple taste quickly transitioned to the traditional chocolate and coffee flavors. Bitter at the end. Faint tobacco in after taste. Higher score for uniqueness.

Feel - Watery yet creamy. Not as heavy as expected. Alcohol is apparent but not overpowering.

Overall - I like the apple juice taste. I know it sounds crazy but I didn't have a wrecked palate before drinking this. Found it aged and thoroughly discounted!

Absolutely perfect; smells strongly of chocolate, mildly sweet on the palate, and smooth as silk.

2014 vintage, poured into a tulip, pours a black with a half inch thick steadfast beige head. Smell of honey, chocolate, roasted malts, vanilla, and lots of sweet malt. Taste is light body with honey notes, chocolate, spice, a bit of a bitter slick oily moderate mouth feel, crisp end, light vanilla notes, floral, and roasted sweet malt. A little too oily yet light for a stout, but very drinkable.
