It's like getting married for the first time - awesome at first but as it goes on, it gets old and you start to think about other beers. Great flavor, but the body gets heavy over time and you're glad you're done with it.

I am trying to clear my palate for this - a bunch of tasty food is dominating it. The stout itself is pretty powerful and seems to be doing the clearing without a lot of help.

It pours beautifully with tons of head and lacing. The aroma is mostly clean, sweet and cholatey. The taste is similarly very cholatey, but not really all that creamy. There are bitters that seem to come from hops and chocolate, which is very pleasant. It's a nice balance and very drinkable. The alcohol is well hidden by the flavors.

Recommended.

Swollen, tight feeling can, with the bottom bulging out... this ones gonna be a gusher. Opened in my utility sink and sure enough, a massive spray of foam. All foam in the glass. Gave this one about 15 minutes of sitting and it finally settled out nicely. Bit on the carbonated side for a stout, but as I let it warm, and swirled the carbonation out of it, this beer is very tasty. Bittersweet bakers chocolate dominates, with the spiciness of the rye on the back end. Some ash, tobacco flavors as well. A nice brew in the end, but the gushing was a let down.

On sale cheap. Bought a 4 pack of 12 oz cans dated 12/9/15.
L: Dark brown pour, small tan head. The beer leaves a nice oily film on the glass.
S: Bitter chocolate, old stale coffee and roasted malt.
T: Flavor matches aroma quite well, a little spice at the finish.
F: Mouthful is thinner than expected.
O: Very nice beer.

Pours a black color. 1/3 inch head of a tan color. Good retention and good lacing. Smells of pine, roasted malt, chocolate, alcohol, sweet malt, and slight lactose. Fits the style of an American Double / Imperial Stout. Mouth feel is sharp and clean, with an average carbonation level. There is also a strong roasted bitterness. Tastes of strong chocolate, sweet malt, strong roasted malt, alcohol, slight piney hops, hint of wood, and lactose. Overall, good appearance, great body, good aroma, but the blend is too much roasted malt, and the feel is too bitter.
