3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
New Beer Distributors, NY 650ml ($5): Pours black with creamy light brown head. Aroma is roasted malt and dark, bitter chocolate, along with a bit of dark roast coffee. Taste is somewhat sweet. Mouthfeel is pretty thick. Leaves a rather sticky taste in the mouth. Some amount of bitterness. This is a pretty good stout, which is more like an imperial stout.

Sample at Rattle N Hum. Darkest brown color with a medium tan head that diminishes gradually. Small patches of lacing. Aroma of chocolate, oak and malt. Medium body with flavors of milk chocolate, oak and earthy malt. The finish is sweet with an oak and chocolate aftertaste. Above average overall.

3.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottled in Jan 2010, opened in Jan 2014.
Aroma is great - strong vanilla and caramel notes. The oak is here too. Flavor - falls a bit short. Starts creamy but ends up with a stunted/abrupt finish. Wood barreling is apparent but maybe too much. It could be that I opened the bottle too far past it’s prime.
Would love to have tried this fresh.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours a jet black color. Tan head dissipates quickly. Not much, aroma wise. Taste is OK but nothing is jumping out at me. Oatmeal isn’t providing a mouthfeel and the barrel isn’t providing much either.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Excessively large head which caused the beer to take quite a while to pour. The flavor is a a mellow roasted malt with a bread-like texture. Easy drinking for a stout.

Bottle from App Vintner, aged for about a year and a half since I bought it - aroma is boozy vanilla with some chocolate notes. Pours pitch with a tan head. Taste is biting and sweet, with a thick palate. Overall, nice.
