trapped (1654) - New York, TURKEY - SEP 7, 2015
Bottle. Inky black with medium sized spongy beige head, mocha flavor with a hint of grapes, slightly sweet mocha taste turning bitter towards the end, low carbonation, alcohol undertones, long bitter chocolate finish. It’s like chocolate with rum!

Bottles from a few years back at the Brewpub. Pours a deep black thick oil Aroma was coffee, dark chocolate, vanilla, sweet milks, and dark fruits. The taste was similar with sweet chocolate, sweet milks, vanilla, and roasted malts. Thick mouth, mild carb. Little too sweet for my tastes.

2/21/15. Sampled during RBWG 2015. Black pour with a small tan head. Rich aroma, quite sweet, lactose showing, lots of chocolate, mild caramel and coffee. Rich, sweet flavor, loads of chocolate and lactose, some caramel, light coffee. A little disappointed. Not bad.

3fourths (8799) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - APR 9, 2015
Draft. Opaque brown with a short off-white head. With only a quiet roasted malt note that seems "natural", the nose is dominated by adjuncts, undoubtedly milk sugar, chocolate and coffee, giving the impression of Oreo cookies / Cookies & Cream ice cream. Abusively sweet in the mouth, extremely cloying to the point that it’s difficult to take more than small sips. Texture is creamy and silty, which could be due to yeast but may also be the lactose. Overall it doesn’t smell like stout, it’s one of the sweetest beers I’ve ever tasted, and the adjuncts completely obliterate any underlying malt character, so I don’t get the point.

chinchill (3345) - South Carolina, USA - FEB 22, 2015
Lg. shared bottle at RBWG-2015. Essentially black body with a thin head that reduces to a very durable ring. Aroma is off, as i confirmed with another taster. The flavor holds up better, but there are some off notes in addition to alcohol esters and dark roasted grains. A bit too sweet as well.
