crossovert (7866) - Illinois, USA - FEB 26, 2013
A really solid beer. A suped-up guiness with cocoa and peat notes but a smooth delivery.

Ughsmash (7181) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 7, 2007
On tap at StoutFest. Poured a deeper brown with a short cap of caramel head. Aroma picked up sweet oats, roasted barley, and milk chocolate.. hints of floral hoppage and coffee as it warmed up. Flavor found dark and milky chocolates, flaked oats, and a grainy coffee bitterness... tasty and rather simple. Lighter-bodied on the palate with a nice flow.. solid overall.

CaptainCougar (7132) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - NOV 30, 2003
Served around 60F. Pours a deep, dark, mostly black with a thin tan head. Aroma is mostly roasted black malts. Body is smooth with a decent thickness and nice balance of sweet and bitter. The finish is bitter and dry with lingering hints of dark chocolate. A good dry stout.

BBB63 (6152) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - JAN 18, 2004
Deep brown hue with golden highlights, produced a medium sized tan head and okay lace. The aroma hints of burnt dark malts, hazelhut, coal and smoke, grassy and floral hops, mild sweet fruits (plum and raisins) and a coffee ester. The taste starts moderately sweet (oats?) and fruity but then a good dose of bitter hops and smoky tones come rushing forward. The finish is coffee toned and lingers more toward a dry stout styles. The mouthfeel is bold enough, dry, crisp and yet full. Confusing, is it a dry or a sweet. get both characteristics but get muddled midway through the glass. Not has good has the Imperials I have had from them, but it may be a case of apple vs oranges. Okay to try once.

AmEricanbrew (6004) - Same Trailer, Different Park, Louisiana, USA - MAY 6, 2008
Black with a frothy tan head. Roasty blackened malt aroma with some pit fruits. Rich creamy mouthfeel. Good stout flavors here of dry blackened malts with some light cocoa. Finish is long and dry. Classic stout here.
