Bottle (22oz). Shared with blankboy, GregClow and tupalev, my bottle. Deep oily black pour, decent diminishing tan head. Solid deep roast aroma, dry, a hint of burnt rubber, dry hops, molasses. Taste is dark roast with sour cherry, alcohol, herbal hops and molasses in the bitter finish. Oily, slightly boozy mouthfeel, long almost burnt roast linger. Pretty solid.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a semi-transparent dark mahogany with a spotty-lacing light tan head. Aroma of lightly sweet and earthy dark malts with a touch of roast. Starts with some nice dark caramel and roasted malts and a touch of licorice. FInishes thinner and dark chocolatey sweet with some nice roasty notes. A pretty good stout.

Poured black into the snifter with an inch of tan head. Very sharp scent with espresso and chocolate present. A hint of oak in the taste with malt and chocolate. A sharp, licorice flavor that came through in the finish, wasn’t very pleasant.

pour is a black with a tint of redness, small beige head, nice lacing.
smell is cocoa, roasted nuts, bit of caramel, weak coffee, almonds.
taste is bakers chocolate, dandelion weeds, oatmeal, some coffee, a touch of licorice, leaves you bitter.
overall as you drink and it warms up a bit, it becomes more creamy and more of a milk chocolate comes out.

Bombert poured a clear black with a small lasting tan head. Aromas of coffee, carmel, nuts, roastiness, dark chocolate and hints of oak and vanilla. Palate was medium bodied and smooth. Flavors of roastiness, chocolate, coffee and a hint of oak with a smooth roasty finish.
Decent stout but WAY over priced.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
22 oz bottle. Thick black pour with an equally thick off white head. Roasted and chocolate malt aroma with a hint of silky oatmeal. Thick coffee chocolate malt taste. Almost like a thick ice coffee with an oatmeal like smoothness to it. Easy drinking stout, not as thick as I thought it would be and I seemed to miss out on the oak. Guess I’ll have to get another one.
