pours opaque black with a nice brown head. aroma is boozy, with roasted coffee and anise. flavor of fresh roasted coffee, anise, and dark fruit. alcohol is very present in the finish. Medium bodied. Pretty solid. My only negative observation, this is a little thin. Should have more body.

on tap @ Party Town / Florence KY --- Opaque black with a brown head cover, streaks of lace. Aroma of roasted malt. Taste is roasted chocolate malt with a bit of anise that becomes more bitter through the addition of coffee tasting hops, rounding things out with noticeable alcohol warmth in the finish. A strong, but enjoyable brew.

jbruner (2577) - Athens, Georgia, USA - OCT 18, 2014
Pours a deep black with hints of brown, nice tan lacy head. Aroma is booze on booze with hints of fruit and licorice. Taste is smoky intense roast with a big boozy licorice back end, hint of plum and muscadine. Booze is less on the mouth than nose, but still present. They make better stouts, but not bad.

rbrazell (1702) - Florida, USA - OCT 8, 2014
Bottle from CBX. Black pour with a creamy brown head. Aroma of bitter dark chocolate, roasted malts, licorice, nuts and hints of dark fruits. Heavy roasted malts, dark fruits, nuttiness, licorice and a lot of bitterness throughout with a big dryness and medium heavy body. Not bad but definitely a winter sipper.

Bottle. Pours black with a nice lasting brown head. Aroma is of heavy roast malt, toasted malt, chocolate. The flavour is fairly sweet with a heavily roasted finish. Lots of molasses flavours, chocolate, and a strong bitterness. Body could be even fuller. Lovely.

Bottle: The aroma consists of big molasses, chocolate, tobacco, smoke, vanilla, cinnamon, and a hint of dark fruits. It pours a dark brown with some faint orange highlights. It has a large tan head that eventually fades to a thin film. The flavor starts with moderate milk chocolate, lighter molasses, and a touch of caramel. The finish has light-moderate roasted malt, light espresso, cinnamon, vanilla, and a touch of smoke. It’s medium-full bodied with mild carbonation and a somewhat creamy mouthfeel.
