Bottle thanks to Jeff. Aroma is super sweet with vanilla bean up front and a subtle chocolate. Pours deep brown with white lacing and a fizzy head. Taste is very sweet with roasted vanilla being prevalent but leaving room for a coffee-chocolate taste as well. Reminds me of Evil Twin Soft Dookie but better. Like it.

Bottle brought by JRedmond at 5K/10K/4K tasting. Pours black with tan head. Nose and taste of roast chocolate malt, vanilla extract, wood and sweet chocolate. Lots of vanilla extract - but in a good way. Medium body.

DocLock (7829) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 18, 2013
Bottles from Frank Smith’s and Whole Foods Plymouth Meeting. Pours thick, rich, black with off-tan head. Nose is roasty dark malt, cacao, mild oak and bourbon. The oaky bourbon melds well with the cacao flavor in this, the palate is dense enough to match a 45 minute Oliva Series V Maduro cigar, and the finish is chocolatey, oaky, and malty. Wonderful.

Bottle at James’s 4k/5k/10k tasting. Pours a deep brown to black with a thin beige head. Big thick chocolate on the nose, super smooth vanilla. Cocoa right away, sweet vanilla, smooth chocolate. Lingering chocolate, cocoa, warm vanilla. Very nice.

Ibrew2or3 (6848) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - MAY 17, 2013
Woodshed 2.0. Bottle share courtesy of Sparky. It pours with a mahogany looking body that supports a tan head of foam. The aroma offers up vanilla, fudge and cinnamon all mixing together. Smells pretty nice. The taste is similar with brownie and fudge as well as molasses mixed with a mild degree of cinnamon like spiciness. Yummy.

AZBennett (114) - Chandler, Arizona, USA - MAY 12, 2013
Pours dark black with a lovely tan head. Aromas are a little light on this one with some chocolate and cream coming through. Taste is MASSIVE creamy chocolate with layers of chocolate that come through between touches of coffee, caramel, toffee, and just a hint of char. Palate is seductively heavy and full with a richness that covers the tongue and is truly satisfying. Overall, this and Southern Tier Choklat are the epitome of chocolate beers that pull it off without being sweet messes of nasty; lovely sipper that is quite good!

Wow. Just wow. This is just good. Smooth stout (they say porter, but they're wrong). Excellent chocolate brownie flavor. Yet an underlying complexity. Recommended! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Thisis12ptfont (835) - Los Angeles, CA, California, USA - APR 27, 2013
Very pleasing aroma of vanilla, chocolate and (oddly enough) raw cookie dough. Deep black color with a thin foam. Smooth flavors of cocoa nibs, mocha, toffee and slightly thick molasses. The oak flavor is present throughout the palate. Overall, this is well balanced but there isn’t as much complexity as I had anticipated.

Bottle generously shared by Sparky @ Woodshed 2.0! This one is all Godiva, Ghirardelli, brownie batter, Hershey’s syrup, and Nestlé Quik. Minimal barrel influence. Not a ton of bourbon, oak, or vanilla...but who cares when decadent chocolate is involved. Really solid. Surprisingly good!
