Poured into a Bell's Hopslam glass

A) Dark brown, cola, no head

S) oak, vanilla, bourbon

T) Sweet cola, bourbon, vanilla, root beer?, interesting beer

M) Low carbonation

O) for a $15 BA four pack it's worth it. Not the best BA stout, but it's good to appease the palate as well as the wallet.

12oz into a New Holland Tulip

Pours dark black with red brown highlights. Not much head or lacing to tell of.

Aroma shows strong vanilla/oak. Subtle malt sweetness lurks in the background. Nice.

Taste is very nice. Brings together elements of old ale, baltic porter, an oak aged stout nicely. Quite similar to Founder's Black Biscuit.

Mouth and drinkability both are high on the charts. Very nice brew.

A dang good beer overall! Just had it for the first time, purchased at a Giant Eagle in a 22oz bottle, purchased last month just poured April 1.

A - can you say black? Very black, no see through light with this beer. Just plain out black.. looks deep and strong with a very minimal head and good lacing.

S - sweet and divine. Almost like dark dark fudge chocolate brownies with a hint of bourbon and a lot of vanilla. Yum

T - follows the smell with more chocolate than vanilla or Bourbon. Although they are still present. Semi sweet but not overly sweet at all. Has some nice tones of vanilla and Bourbon going on here

M - heavy and not light or soapy at all. Nice and you can taste this for about 5 mins after your last drink. Nice mouth feel.

O - awesome, one of the best stouts in a long time I've tasted. Overall 4.75, near perfect . Also tastes minimally boozy for being 11% alcohol.
( this particular stout varys from batch to batch) I luckily managed to snag the 11% alcohol batch woohoo ;)

A - No head to speak of when poured. Dark with ruby highlights. No lacing.

S - Great smell. Alcohol, chocolate, coffee.

T- Alcohol and mocha. Very much like a mocha coffee.

M - Smooth and full. A thick wave covers my tongue.

D - I would like one of these a every week or so in the winter. Awesome beer.
