At Jackie O's. Bury me out back when I'm dead.

Pitch black, oily, opaque. No light shall pass.

Woah nelly. This smells amazing. Walnuts, chocolate, coffee and a tinge of booze.

My goodness, immediately catapulted to the top of my favorite stout list. The walnuts, coffee and chocolate and playing games with me. I think I may fall over. Here comes some smoke. Then tobacco. This gets better with every sip.

Thick and oily. I don't want it to leave. It is as proper as a stout could feel.

Wonderful. The words "world-class" come to mind. Wish I could have this all the time.

Growler (Hand-bottled test batch)

Thanks for opening this with me, DarthKostrizer!

Black throughout with a very small, minimal dark brown head. There really isn't a lot of visible carbonation here. This leaves the glass oily and slick.

The aroma is incredibly nice. There's plenty of dark roasted malt character, sweet vanilla and whipped cream, mild coffee, and nut character. Complete and decadent.

The flavor, too, is stunning. It's rich, roasty, creamy, and complex (earth, vanilla, whipped cream, and nut). The flavors are well integrated and the alcohol is well hidden though not completely masked. Very nice.

Medium to full bodied with very low carbonation. Creamy and incredibly drinkable.

Simply fantastic.

Thanks to DarthKostizer for sharing this one at his tasting.

Test batch 1. 2012 vintage.

Pours an opaque black with a dark khaki head that settles to an oily film on top of the beer. Small streaks of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of dark roasted malt, nuts, sweet vanilla, and wood. Taste is exactly the same with an alcohol kick on the finish. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a very good beer with great aromas and flavors.
