Terminus (3214) - Las Cruces, New Mexico, USA - JUL 16, 2012
Tap at ITAP-Soulard June 2012-pours dark brown with a small kacki soapy head with various bubble sizes and mild carbonation. nose is somewhat nutty, milky, malted milk balls and anise. flavors are alite with hints of woody malt flavors. hmm, kind of different here. a very dry finish not much going on though however. a decent beer in the lines of a lite stout yet kind of odd. fairly bitter baking chocolate and earthy hops long into the finish. not a bad beer albeit somewhat unusual.

Pour is a black with a large tan head. Aroma is a nice mix of chocolate and roasted malt with a little coffe in there. Flavor is a little less intense. Still get a decent roasted malt with some chocolate milk and coffee but its a bit watery for my liking. Still a decent pick up and the low alcohol is a plus.

It poured a dark color with a small tan head. The aroma was coffee, chocolate and some roasted malts. The taste was a decent amount of coffee and some roasted malts. A hint of chocolate was in the aftertaste. A very good stout.

Draft with a burger and fries. Chocolate milk, malt. Flavor stays solid through the aftertaste. Good, solid stout. Very drinkable!

750 from Wine and Cheese in St. Louis. Slightly velvet/creamy stout. Big tan head. Not a big heavy body. Some coffee and chocolate.

Capped 750 from Wine & Cheese in Clayton, MO. Pours black with a 4 finger creamy/foamy tan head. Through the head I can only get chcolate and some dark malt. Med minus body. Flavor is dark chocolate and a burnt malt that reminds of the old style Guinness. There’s coffee in it, and something like citrus hop? Basically it’s pretty dry, and bitter. The dominant flavor seems to be the malt. I was hoping Cat Spit related to Cat Piss, but it’s pretty good stuff thanks to the malt bitter.

CaptainCougar (7129) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - MAR 5, 2012
750ml bottle courtesy of jdskinns: Pours a mostly opaque with dark brown edges and a spotty-lacing off-white head. Has a lightly sweet, toasted dark caramel and chocolate malty nose. Starts with average fullness and plenty of carbonation with some mild sweetness and faint metallic notes before a drier, roasted dark chocolate and coffee finish. Could use a little refinement, but still a fairly drinkable stout.

750ml Bottle (at 4.8%ABV per the Bottle.): Got in trade from Phaleslu; THANKS Peter! Aroma of malt, chocolate, roasting, light lactose, light bitter coffee, and a hint of maple molasses. Poured black in color with a small, creamy, dense, tan head that lasted throughout. Opaque. Sparkling. Flavor is light to medium sweet and slightly bitter. Tastes much like it smells, of malt, chocolate, roasting, light lactose, light bitter coffee, slight hops, and some burnt malt. Medium body. Slightly chalky texture. Average carbonation. Malt, roasting, chocolate, light lactose, slight hop finish is slightly dry.

Draft. Pour is dark brown with a small tan head. Aroma is pretty standard but solid with hints of chocolate, light roasted malt, and a hint of cream. Flavor is also very standard with roasted malt, a light chocolate hint and a clean roasted finish. No complaints here, very straight forward stout.
