Bottle:   Lots of chocolate, fairly dry too.   Smooth, somewhat rich, low bitterness, but roasty.   None of that pasture which is nice.   Better than expected.   Has a touch of earthiness to it, soft soil.   Backside has a strong dry bakers chocolate like finish.   I liked that this one was smooth, fairly rich, and wasnít out of balance.   Could stand to be a touch sweeter given how dry it was, but otherwise its tasty.

On tap at crooked fence barrel house. Pours out black topped with a tan head. Nose is roast malts bitter hops and some ashtray. Taste is as the nose with lots of bitter grapefruit and dark malts. This was not good.

Dark and roasty, on tap at CF taproom. Black with thin beige head, elements of fresh ground coffee and chocolate, wood and burnt toast. Short finish, but high ABV makes this a sipper.

Bottle thanks to some kind soul. Pours a dark brown color with a medium tan head. A big roast and dank hoppy nose. The flavor was more toward the dark side with chocolates and roast, some cocoa, but robust fruity hops, lingering bitterness in the finish. Good.

IndianaRed (2436) - Boise, Idaho, USA - SEP 1, 2012
On tap at the Barley Bros Brew Fest, Meridian ID. Very dark brown and a brown milk chocolate head. Lots of chocolate in the aroma and not much hippiness. Flavor is similar, quite sweet not very bitter and full bodied. Iím thinking they were shooting for more attenuation and more IBUs. This is more like a hoppy sweet stout. Not bAd though
