I have to say this was an excellent beer. I am not one for rating beers, but this brewery has taken their beers to the next level. I found this beer to be equal of Founders Breakfast Stout. I know for a fact that is saying a lot. If you are in Raleigh I would make sure to stop by this place. The stout is something not brewed like the others.

A very nice stout, with good taste but also easy to enjoy (not a stout that requires use of a spoon, but still one that has a feel to it). Nice, deep, color and a good, lively taste and smell. Also have to compliment the taproom and staff, who spent an extended period on a slow afternoon discussing brewing.

Smoky aroma has malty, yeasty and chocolate notes with a hint of licorice. It pours a deep chocolaty opaque brown with a fairly thick and fine-bubbled tan head. Flavor has smoky, coffee, licorice and caramel notes plus a pinch of hops and a whisper of fruit. Texture is a bit thin for a stout, but fairly fizzy and lively, leaving a nice smoky and tingly finish.

Dark brown, near black, pour with mountainous 3+ fingers of very light head. Excellent lace and head retention, what with 3 fingers to work with

Chocolate and tobacco nose. Really more tobacco than anything else. Quite earthy.

Tobacco carries over into the taste. Very smoky. Notes of chocolate and coffee, but smoky tobacco dominates. Hides abv completely.

Lighter in body than expected for 7%+ beer.

My current favorite from Roth.

On-tap at the brewery's tap room served in a standard pint glass a deep opaque black with a thin diminishing head. Aroma is a nice amount of roasted malts. The taste is smooth roasted malts and a nice touch of bitter cocoa. The beer is on the heavy side of medium with mild carbonation. This is an enjoyable strong stout, one I would certainly have again.

On tap at the brewery.

Pours a dark brown on the verge of black with head that lasts forever. Smells of roasted malt, coffee, and a hint of fruit though I can't pinpoint which fruit exactly. Taste is solid; coffee from the malts and a hint of chocolate with the undetermined fruit coming through ever so vaguely. Mouthfeel is a little light, but not in a bad way. Overall, I consider this to be one of the best that Roth has to offer.

22 oz

Pours jet black with a coarse coffee-and-cream head, dissipates slowly with some bubbles clinging to the glass.

Smells of dark chocolate and roasted coffee beans, with some oak hints.

Tastes of bitter cocoa and roasted coffee with some minor coffee acidity and maybe a twinge of licorice.

Body on the fuller side, a bit viscous, with a soft carbonation.

A pretty good medium strength stout with a good body and an okay taste. Not much to complain about here. I've had better stouts, but I've had far worse too.
