Chocolate, coffee, butterscotch, bourbon barrel, vanilla, and smoke flavors. Creamy, sweet, lightly carbonated, and has a dry finish. It wasn’t as thick at I was expecting.

Bottle. Dark brown, thin head, chocolatey a little sweet. Palate is a little thin for style and finish is long.

Pours into mug a cola black with light brown head. Nose is some chocolate, coffee and roasted malts. Taste is some chocolate and roasted malts--which is good--but also an ever so slight sour taste--which is not. Overall, it's a pretty good stout - and the alcohol is greatly disguised. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Draft at GBD in Washington DC. Poured a dark, almost black color with a dark tan head. Aroma is chocolate, some roasted notes, vanilla. Some chocolate milk notes, some light coffee, went well as an after-dinner drink.

Bottle.
Appearance: Pitch black pour into the glass producing a tall and creamy tan head. The head has fine carbonation bubbles and decent retention.
Aroma: The aroma is restrained but bitter dark chocolate, powdered cocoa, creamer, and a slightly smokey and roasty aroma is present. The aroma is balanced and a bit too weak to be fully enjoyed.
Taste: Creamer lays the base for hints of smoke, roasted malts, fig, dark chocolate and powdered cocoa, in no particular order. This is balanced nicely, a bit mellow, but nice to drink.
Palate: Soft full body, mild carbonation.
Overall: A very nice stout that wouldn’t stand out among any heavy hitter, but finds a spot still. It’s a reserved beer with good balance and good complexity. This would suit mild desert dishes.

Pretty nice stout. Lots of chocolate with a little creaminess. Pours black with good head and lacing. Finishes bitter with light sweetness. Great balance, and good beer all around. Happy to enjoy this at Happy Hour at GBD.
