12 oz bottle from Giant Eagle in Pittsburgh. Deserves every bit of the high praise it merits. One of the best stouts I’ve ever had.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle- pours deep muddy black, dense brown ring of head. Nice lacing. Nose if chocolate, roasted malts, molasses, and raisins. A bit thin on the palate. Flavors of burnt toast, chocolate, molasses, dark fruits. Interesting stout that has some nice characteristics but lacking depth

4.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Come on now, this is a stout I could use with any one of 3 three great foods that I like, according to the summary of the beer that I just read. Its a very narcissistic description - talk about patting oneself on the back! - but nevertheless, flavor color texture etc all live up to the claims, so according to the Vodka4Blood Beer Tasting Institute (donations accepted!) I pronounce this stout exceptional!

Very much to-style Dry Stout. Cocoa, roasted coffee grounds bitterness, not detectably sweet, medium bodied. Tasty stuff.

Bottle from cpetrone-thanks, Chris! Deep black, almost opaque with huge slow fading foamy head. Nose is dark roast malts, light smokiness. Taste is bitter dark malts, lots of carbonation on this one. Bitter dark chocolate finish.

Bottle from Julio’s. Sweet chocolate aroma, dark pour with frothy head and no lacing. Roasted malts with milk chocolate dark fruit notes and some very mild lactic notes. Full mouthfeel. This was delightful.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Drought, inky black with small tan foamy head, slight roasted malt aroma, low carbonatio, strong alcohol taste overriden by toasted malt flavor, long finish with a burnt aftertaste. Fine brew but the alcohol taste is not fully masked, which is surprising for a beer with less than 9% alcohol content.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Very good dark opaque pour w/ a beautiful mocha head that slowly dwindles while leaving nice lacing. The taste is interesting not quite roasty but an odd bitterness is left on the tongue. Definitely not your traditional stout but I’m not sure this completely works for me!

Great showing for style. Pours black will with great mocha head and lacing. Creamy texture. Some roast and chocolate with equal sweet and dark elements. Roast a little over caramelized for style but still a food beer overall. Tap at Black Squirrel.
