BucannonXC5 (1411) - San Diego, California, USA - AUG 23, 2011
UPDATED: OCT 21, 2011 Poured from a tap into a pint glass at KnB Wine Cellar’s in San Diego, Calif. Color was coffee black. Probably heavy on the head, but I missed the pour. Good looking beer, though. First smell was coffee. Also some caramel, nuts, Nyquill and cough drops. First taste was coffee, followed by a strong alcohol bite and then a chocolate finisher. Dark, but so smooth. Mild carbonation. Some licorice and almost a liquor taste, like Bailey’s Irish Cream. The Nyquill/cough syrup kept coming in and was off-putting. I really like this beer, but it was much better out of the bottle. I usually am a draft guy, but the taste specifically was better out of the bottle.

Dogbrick (11322) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - AUG 22, 2011
Sample on Day 2 of the Aces & Ales Strong Beer Festival on 08/13/2011. Cola-colored pour with a medium light beige head that dissipates steadily. Rings of lacing on the glass. Pours black with a medium tan head that recedes steadily. Stringy lacing on the glass. Roasty aroma of malt and coffee, along with a touch of chocolate. Medium, creamy body with flavors of mocha, mild hops and malt. The finish is sweet milk chocolate. Above average overall.

tripelthreat (190) - Soquel, California, USA - AUG 16, 2011
Bottle. Beige head tops a brownish-black body. Aroma is light coffee, chocolate, a good amount of oats, and some molasses as it warms. Taste is medium sweet and bitter. Flavor is roasted malt, wood, more coffee and chocolate, and drying bitterness. Some bourbon notes in the finish. Medium body and carbonation is bit fizzy for my tastes. Nice stuff.

FunkyBrewster (1518) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUL 27, 2011
12 oz Bottle. Pours a deep brown with a creamy light tan head. Aroma of roasty malts, dark chocolate, a bit of the sweet breadiness along with touches of piney hops. Flavor is super roasty, dark cocoa bitterness that lends towards the light sweet chocolate character. The hops are lightly spicy and earthy in the finish. Medium body and a soft carbonation. Nice stout, nothing amazing, but solid nonetheless.

papsdatank (47) - Michigan, USA - JUL 17, 2011
It poured nearly black with a tan head that left minimal lacing. It smelled of roasty chocolate and coffee malts the taste follows the nose, it’s extremely smooth and drinkable and pretty full flavored for such a low ABV.
