Slightly clear dark brown pour. Fluffy light tan head. Sweet stout with some roasted malt and a touch of smoke. Bitter finish. Nothing special.

Crushed with Honkeybra. No head. Thin black pour with a reddish tint when you hold it to the light. Aroma of tart cherries. A possible infection? Very thin-bodied, Decent flavor and goes down smoothly. Not incredible, but easy to drink.

Bottle. Poured a deep rich black with a large light brown frothy head that lasted about 3/4 of the way though the glass and produced some really excellent lacing. The aroma was strong of burnt dark chocolate malts, a medium leathery yeast with notes of roasted coffee, molasses, some chared oak and a mild dose of bourbon with a hint of vanilla. It tasted, (WOW) pretty awesome with a nice bitter coffee flavor from the onset and then slowly maturing into a nice chocolate, molasses, coffee medley with an ever so slight whiskey finish. Mouthfeel was kind of bold but not as full as I would have thought, more medium than full in body. The texture was absolutly smooth and creamy with a flat carbonation. Overall an outstanding stout, although I would have like a little more body and a tad more of the bourbon flavor.

355mL. Pours a clear deep ruby with a large, tan head. Spotty lace. Nose is malty, roast coffee. Ashy and roasty. Taste is coffee and tobacco. Richer than expected with ash and red fruitiness. Watery, tart mouthfeel. Not super great.

flatmatt (1150) - Northville, Michigan, USA - JUN 12, 2011
12 oz bottle. Pours black with a light tan head. Aroma has lots of creamy, roasty coffee and cocoa. Flavor is quite roasty, strong coffee, a little vanilla, with some bourbon and oak hints. Definitely a very nice stout.

Slightly plastic-y bourbon nose with chocolate and milanese. The rate is lightly sweet, lightly bitter, slightly lactic, lots of milk chocolate.

Pours a thick black with a nose of plastic bourbon oak. Flavor is sour chocolate and plastic. Average mouthfeel. Meh.

Everything a stout should be but less. Or something like that. Has a nice bitterness built into the flavor, but tastes a little thin. Maybe I’d try it again.

Zinister (1423) - Houston, Texas, USA - MAY 20, 2011
Thanks to bleeng for this beer. Pours a dark brown, with thin brown head. Nose of roasted malts, chocolate, cocoa and coffee. Fizzy mouthfeel. Flavor is weak coffee, a bit thin. Not bad, not great.

Pawola22 (3262) - Woodridge, Illinois, USA - MAY 15, 2011
12oz bottle from a random trade at Dark Lord Day. Pours a black body with a big, two finger-width, dense and foamy, dark brown head that collapses slowly and leaves a solid lacing throughout. Aroma is big on the grainy coffees with a good amount of wood, some chocolate, dark fruits, roasts with a light char, and vanilla-bourbon. Flavor is similar. Lots of grainy coffees, roasts, dark chocolate, and dry wood up front. Some vanilla-bourbon, dark fruits, burnt wood, and a milky chocolate sweetness as well. Finishes dry and oaky with a good amount of roasts, vanilla-bourbon, and a light chocolate sweetness that leaves a medium-light bitterness. Lengthy aftertaste following a medium body and higher, lively carbonation. Overall, a pretty solid barrel-aged stout. Has a nice, roasty and dry, woody bourbon flavor that remains well balanced with a pleasant chocolate sweetness. Not the most complex, but enjoyable.
