So generally speaking I had found AC to be good but not as great as they are so hyped. This beer changed my sentiments. It is absolutely fantastic, far and away the best rocky road stout I have had. Matte black pour with an oatmeal brown cap. Super dark nutty nose with chocolate ganache, vanilla and a hint of nougat. Taste is liquid rocky road ice cream in the stout. Wow. Feel is sweet but not syrupy, nuts help balance somewhat, really the sweetness on the finish is the only this holding this back, as the maltwork is excellent

The bottle is scary looking, but Raul will not be deterred! I would slay an archangel to sip this thing! Yes, I would even swim in the river Styx to smash this beverage! Rawhide like William S. Hart baby!

Get some!

Poured a black body with minimal head and lace down the glass. Aroma has hints of chocolate and nuts but mainly I get vanilla. The beer is thick yet slick with a slight chocolate ice cream vibe and is easy to drink. The ABV is well hidden and there is a touch of vanilla and marshmallow fluff with a touch of nutty dryness in finish. Easy to drink and sweet but not too much going on in this beer.

Thanks to Sabtos for this 750ML potential Molotov cocktail. Split with my wife the evening after the Twins clinched their first division title since 2010. We’re coming for you, Yankees.

The stout is black. The nose is overwhelming vanilla sweetness. I like vanilla.

Rocky Road tastes like I’m getting cavities in my toenails. Sweltering vanilla sweetness like a sugary blanket over my teeth, chewy chocolate, over serious malt base. No nuts appear, nor does any apparent alcohol. Creamy, smooth, I could take this in several shots over the course of an hour.

The definition of a dessert beer: big, bold, chocolate milk with a vanilla rebar stir-stick. A very good beer without the ‘it’ factor to elevate in into a higher pantheon.

2019 vintage; drank 8/9/19 @ the Yarchives.

Midnight black, with a thick, sticky mouthfeel.

Very little head or lacing.

Notes of vanilla & dark chocolate in the nose.

Taste follows...not real balanced, & the walnuts didn't stand a chance. Over the top, but not terrible.

IMO this has to be the best Angry Chair Stout I have ever had..

Think melted ice cream in a glass.
No your heavy typical desert stout.
Just the right amount of sweetnesses

Marshmallow Chocolate and Vanilla Notes.

Let me preface this by saying this is my first AC stout.

This thing is ridiculously sweet. Like, you're gonna get a cavity just smelling it.
All jokes aside, it smells fantastic. You get all the adjuncts just from smelling.

Like I said above, it's extremely sweet. The vanilla and chocolate smack you in the face, and the walnuts are on the back end.

Overall, consuming the whole bottle by myself was difficult. I would definitely recommend sharing it for sure. Or do what I did, and mix it with some ice cream to make a float, 10/10 would recommend doing that.
