Had a goblet for $6 at Liberty St. Tavern. I'm not easily impressed by double stouts like this, but it's an interesting beer. It's rich, yet not too heavy with a balance of sweet fruit to the smooth, roasted cocoa. The malt brings a mix of mocha, a little dry, dark chocolate, and a deep, but not overpowering roast. HiJinx may be a young brewery, but this is an expertly-made stout. Find yourself a glass, it makes a mighty fine nightcap.

Appearance is a dark chocolate brown with a thin layer of head. The head leaves some lacing on the glass, but not much considering the consistency of the froth. The nose is quite mild; there is a touch of roasted malt, but not much of a punch.

This offering certainly has a healthy full-bodied feel with a mild roasty kick. There are definitely strong hints of dark fruits in the flavor and a nicely dry finish that packs a touch more hoppiness than the normal double stout.

This is a great home brew from my home town - definitely highly recommended!

"Like I told you, what I said..."

Update: Feb 21, 2014. Had a chance to sample a cask of this offering that was aged in a tequila barrel. The cask event was held at the Strange Brew Tavern in Allentown and part of Lehigh Valley Beer Week II. It did not appear that the barrel-aging added any distinct tequila notes, but the overall flavor was a touch sweeter than the standard version. I also noticed a distinct alcohol warmth on the finish that was not present in the standard version. All-in-all, this was an enjoyable one-off effort.
