Very dark pour from the bottle at Dulles. No head to speak of. Not much aroma either. But the flavor really kicked things into gear. Chocolate and burnt toasted flavors. Very tasty stuff.

Bottle from Barleyshops in Congleton. Black with a light brown foamy head. This has a good nose on it, light roast with vanilla and acidity. Smooth and tasty. Vanilla notes, oak (what a surprise), malty. Pretty good, that a little to acid for me and not enough chocolate.

Bottle in Baltimore. Brown pour, almost no head. Aroma is roasty, loads of caramel, vanilla, chocolate and some sugary malts. Flavor is quite smooth, slightly roasty, quite sweet and with a decent body. Somehow has all the ingredients for an epic stout, but isn’t it. Might be that the oak and vanilla seem a little forced on this one.

Draft at IAD. Pours very dark brown with a fizzy beige head. Tastes like sweet chocolate malt, roasted, molasses, and dry earth. Light/medium body and low carbonation. Smells like chocolate, molasses, syrup, and roasted malt.

Got a ton of oak on this one. Otherwise, not much to speak of.. pretty bland. I felt like I was drinking a liquified version of an old bookcase.
