Poured from a 12oz bottle into a pint glass, looks deliciously dark with a thick tan head. That is where the goodness stops...the nose smells of strongly of green olives and a pickled essence. The taste was just the same, roasty green olives and a toasted pickled finish. Born and raised in Indianapolis, and I always wanna give the local brews a try, but I wish I had not on this one.

Thanks to Joe for this one.

A: Pours black with a small tan head on that reduces rather quickly leaving nothing on top. Some thin lacing forms around the edges.

S: Lots of roasted malt, a bit of chocolate, and a hint of coffee.

T: Lots of roasty malt upfront with a bit of bitter chocolate in the middle. There is a very faint citrus note in the middle, but it is fleeting.

M: Medium bodied with moderate carbonation.

O: A solid stout. Not overly complex, but easy drinking.

Bottle from Champane's, less than six months old. A serviceable stout. Initially a little musty aroma. Black with virtually no head remaining. A little chalk, roast, chocolate malt. Decent drinkability. Undercarbonated and a bit above average mouthfeel.

Pitch-black and opaque black upon pouring, with a deep tan head. Not much lace to speak of.

Nose is creamy bittersweet chocolate, with an underlying caramel vibe. Unusual and appealing!

Taste is plenty of the bittersweet chocolate, burnt coffee, and more of the caramelized sugar. I also get a good sense of the oat infusion, as this one is smooth, and almost milky/lactic in texture. Surprisingly different with the sweet/sourness. Enjoyable.

My wife bought a bottle of this home from a recent trip to Indiana and I'm very glad she did. This beer is black and opaque in terms of visibility with moderate carbonation seen around the very edges in the form of tiny bubbles rising moderately quickly. The head is a dark tan in color and frothy. It dissipates nice and slowly to a thin lacing on the surface. 4.25/5 The aroma features dark roasted malt, espresso, dark bakers chocolate, milk, and oats. There is a bit of an earthiness to the aroma along with a hint of vanilla that rounds everything out nicely. Very rich and deep, especially for a 5.5% abv beer. 4/5 The initial sip brings out vanilla and toffee on the tip of the tongue, providing a nice burst of sweetness and richness. This transitions, smoothly, to dark roasted malt and charred wheat bread along with a bit of oatmeal as an undertone. The middle of the flavor showcases cold brewed coffee and a slight dark chocolate note. Espresso bitterness comes out in the final third of the taste with this bitterness lingering for quite a bit after swallowing. 4/5 A moderate carbonation burn up front keeps this beer from becoming heavy. Medium bodied, which is a bit odd considering the flavors. The mouthfeel actually lightens as it passes the tongue from front to back. Moderate drying with a slight lingering dryness finishes off the feel. 3.5/5 Layered flavors and well balanced profile make for a very enjoyable experience. This would be even better if it would retain a full body rather than retreating to a medium body feel. The aroma alone is enough for me to buy this one. 4/5

From the 12 oz bottle via a friend from work---Thanks Justin!
This fine brew pours a deep obsidian with a nice tan head of
dissipating foam that settles to a thick ring, thin layer, and nice lacing.
Nose of smoke and char, chocolate, and subtle dark fruit. Flavors
lightly exceed the nose with a smoked malt and mild char atop a chocolate
and mild bittering hop note. Nice mouth feel, medium carbonation, coating,
and a nice lingering bitter malt finish. Nice.

Cheers

13 122 is printed on the label, April '13, almost 8 months old.

Pours black with plenty of tan foam, good retention, the skim breaks after a few sips, but leaves behind lots of drippy lacing.

Mellow roast and cocoa sweetness in the aroma.

Taste is not the best, it's mainly astringent and tart, also thin bodied. Dry chalky roastiness in the aftertaste, though it's a shell of itself. Seems to be infected unfortunately.

Thanks to Howard for this one, too bad it was a dumper.

This brew sits gorgeous in a glass. Thick fat milk chocolate brown head stands at nearly 3 inches. Fades quickly leaving scattered dots of lace. Body is pure jet blackness. Nose is full and roast y with tons of smoked malt and rich billowing sweetness. The taste however doesn't quite stand up to the majesty of the look and smell. With first sip you get a noticeable thinness to the body of this brew. A roast y bitterness battles with its search for balance. A bit of creamy full body sweetness would go a long way to balance this brew. A solid brew overall but I had such high hopes after the nose and look of this beer.
