Draft at mellow mushroom Huntsville. Pours black with half an inch of khaki foam that disappears quickly. Has some fairly prominent chocolate notes on the nose. Lots of chocolate on the tongue as well. I canít say Iím getting much vanilla on the tongue. Finishes clean. Solid example of the style.

UPDATED: OCT 23, 2012 Slight sour flavor that has to be overcome. If you can ignore that, it is an enjoyable beer. Smell is very much chocolate/coffee. Flavor is very much coffee strong coffee. It does hold a burnt flavor. Slight bitter. If they can fix the sour part, this could be a keeper.
Iíve had at another point not sour but way over hopped. This is not a good brew.

On tap at the Rocket City Brewfest. Pours pitch black with a large tan head. The aroma is strong black coffee, tobacco, and hazelnut. The flavor is a charred bitterness, with limited malt sweetness. The palate is heavy, syrupy, and has a long bitter finish. Overall, a very strong stout, with a lot of flavor, but little balance.

You could smell the chocolate/dark malty-ness of it, but the taste had a strangeness compared to other stouts....I would describe it as an almost cola aftertaste. The mout feel was nice and heavy, and the smokey-chocolate taste was quite refreshing. It didnít feel overly heavy or light and seemed to have a balanced feel.

4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
I had this last night for the first time and I loved it. It has a thick chocolate-y taste and was really easy to drink even though it is a stout.
I have been very impressed with Blue Pants Brewery and look forward to future brews.
