Draft at CCB during hunahpu day 2013 with Andrew, Maggi and Geoff. Pours a deep black body with no head. Aroma is whiskey, chocolate and light roast. Mouthfeel is medium with similar notes in the flavor. Pretty straightforward, but I thought it worked.

On draft at CCB, poured a dark brown color with aromas of roast, light oak, and some booze. Flavors are roast, light on the palate with some booziness in the aftertaste. A nice beer overall.

Draft on tap at Cigar City Tap Room (Tampa, FL). Pours a nice darker blackish brown hue, good darker body. Near opaque, some ruby brown edges and bottom. A frothy light brown head atop dies to a film, laces small. Aromas are oak chips and cocoa, gentle toffee, irish soda bread dryness, gentle spirit gives a kiss of whiskey, vanilla, gentle roast. Touches of creamy body meet some gentle roast, toast, and darker black malts. Gentle roasted barley. Nice. Initial is medium bodied, a bit lighter showing some gentle roastiness, ash, and nutty earth. Some sweeter middle shows some cream, coffee, gentle oatmeal sweetness, bit of body, silky creamy body works well for me. Irish soda bread, nice dryness typical of an Irish Stout hits in the middle and flows into the backend. Some oak, roast, and earth hit as we finish up. Earthy, a touch roasty and ashy, faint spirit. Nose made me think this would be a bit intense, but this is really nice.

On tap at Hunah day 2013. Nose was pure whiskey and some roast with leather like aromas. Itís like someone burned your shoe and then tried to put out the fire with whiskey...which probably only make things worse...and make me mad because of the wasted whiskey. Anyways, flavor is quite similar with tannic qualities hidden behind whiskey and roasted notes. A bit thin on the palate. Not bad.

On draft at CCB for Huna Day 13í. Got a small sip from my buddies cup. Pitch black with a slight lacing. Little bit of whiskey aroma but mostly dry like a typical dry stout. Mouth feel was pretty flat, which kind of ruined it for me.

Had this at the bar room. It's a very dark and toasty beer with a bitter taste. It's a medium palate but packs a nice punch ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

The aroma is dry and whiskey like with coffee and wood. The appearance is dark with a small head. The taste is like the aroma. The palate is thin. Overall a good beer.

This one was a winner with itís full cocoa and whiskey flavors, and being only 5% abv. I didnít get much whiskey in the aroma, but lots of cocoa, roasted malts and mellow oak were all there. Easy on the palate, while giving a decent whiskey-fix.
