The can is funny but thatís pretty much where my fondness ends. Itís heavily overcarbonated and despite my best efforts filled the glass with foam. Flavors are leather, cough drops, woody, licorice. Alcohol-heavy almost to the point of medicinal. Canít say Iíll seek it out.

Can. This one was overly carbonated for me, as the tan head that poured out took up 2/3 of the glass, and I had to suck it down to keep from spilling. Nose is very roasty and dry, and reminds me a lot of a dry stout. Taste is very dark and quite bitter, with some of the roasting coming through as well. Very dark and a little overwhelming.

12/16/2013. From can. Pours black with a tan head. Nice lacing. Aromas are dark roasted malt, dark fruit, chocolate. Not as bitter or robust as other stouts, but good balance. Nice stout.

Appearance: near black with a thick, creamy beige head; poured from a black can covered with unappetizing pictures of spiders, although the captions were relatively humorous. Aroma: smells nice, with aromas of dark and sweet chocolate, vanilla, tobacco, leather, graham cracker, and coffee. Taste: unpleasantly herbal, almost minty, and unbalanced toward the astringent and hoppy, with a hint of bitter roast underneath. Finish: lingering herbal, piney, green-stick woody hops giving way to a low, medicinal minerality. Notes: Ugh. Nice aroma and good palate, as well a decent appearance (barring the can). The flavors were just off for me. Not a properly-hopped stout. Way too herbal and the bitterness was overpowering.

Hanuta06 (335) - Washington, USA - NOV 8, 2013
Serving: from can--purchased at Full Throttle Bottles. Aroma: light malt. Appearance: large, rocky, light brown initial head with fair lacing and mostly diminishing longevity. Dark-brown/black body. Taste: moderately sour, roasty, initial flavor and finish with hint of chocolate and wood. Short duration. Palate: medium-to-full body, watery texture and lively carbonation. Overall: not for me.

Beerenberger (1480) - Fischer, Texas, USA - NOV 7, 2013
Aroma is sweetish - liqourice, chocolate, and vanilla. A brown-black pour with a vigorous, mostly lasting, khaki head with abuntent lacing. The taste is, overall, mildly sweet. Milk chocolate, liqourice, with hints of coco cola and citrus. While there is a nice moderately bitter finish, there is not much roasted flavor going on here. Medium body and moderate carbonation. Overall, I enjoyed this stout, but it is not as robust and/or roasty as I would have expected.

on tap, pours black with a thin tan head. Nice stout nose, roast, oak, earth, alcohol. Solid roast, espresso, alcohol attack, a bit thin and watery on the finish. Pretty nice beer.
