3.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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. Thereís coffee in it, and something like citrus hop? Basically itís pretty dry, and bitter. The dominant flavor seems to be the malt. I was hoping Cat Spit related to Cat Piss, but itís pretty good stuff thanks to the malt bitter.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

Bottle @ B.R.A.D. Fest, courtesy of jcnielsen. Possibly infected, super bubbly head. Pours a brown appearance with a huge brown head. Spicy, toasted coffee, light chocolate, a touch fruity aroma. Slightly burnt, light chocolate, lightly roasted coffee, a bit friuty flavor. Way overcarbonated but I donít think itís infected.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Tap at the breweryís tasting room. Pours a mostly opaque dark brown with a little tan head that leaves a lasting ring the entire time. Aroma of rich, roasted malts, coffee, dark chocolate, toast, molasses, and a little earth. The flavor almost exactly follows suit, with a lot of coffee and chocolate, roasted malts, earth, and caramel and molasses sweetness. The body is just a little thin and under-carbonated, but barely; Iíd call it light-medium bodied. Roasty, smooth mouthfeel. Still, this is an awesome stout and I actually liked it just a touch better than the LSD imperial stout upon my first try of both.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.
