Pours dark brown/black with a thin mocha head. Aroma coffee, a touch of smoke, some dark fruit, and a hint of bitter dark chocolate. Flavor has some sweet caramel, coffee, smoke, and dark chocolate...just a hint of oak. Mouthfeel is medium and the finish is bitter/burnt roasty and dries with oak. Nice impy thanks to larry the sandwich guy!

3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: FEB 22, 2012 On tap at EBC.
Poured a dark, opaque color with two fingers of tan head.
Mild aroma of chocolate and vanilla.
First sip, immediate taste of chocolate and a vanilla finish hits your mouth.
As the beer warms up it becomes more and more rough on the finish.
Pretty good stout, may be too rough for those whoa re not used to stouts.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft at Coles. Near black with a tan head. The aroma is almost creamy, with molasses, chocolate, and vanilla. The flavor has more molasses and cream, almost like a vanilla custard, as well as lighter notes of roasted/burnt malts. A tad dry in the finish. Not bad.
