Stoutfest 2014. Dark brown pour light tan head. Hop resin aroma and taste like something FFF would do. Avg, not how I like them.

artmcd8 (1610) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 30, 2014
GI Stout Fest 2014. Pours a dark brown with a light brown head. Aroma is of piney hops, some floral notes, roasty coffee notes in the background. The taste is slightly on the bitter side but still well balanced. Slightly dry on the finish but a really refreshing beer among all the BA stouts.

daknole (9101) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - NOV 17, 2013
Super dark brown pour, brown head. Interesting beer. Tropical fruits and stout. Not a combo of flavors that I expected to work, but it does. Chocolate, roast, oranges, mango notes...finishes a bit dry. GABF pour.

adnielsen (9081) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - OCT 15, 2013
GABF 2013. Pours a brownish black appearance with a thin brown head. Slight veggie, dark chocolate, tangy, a touch fruity aroma. A bit woody, chewy bready, roasted malty flavor. I got some veggie/woody notes in the aroma and flavor that kind of turned me off, but I appear to be the exception. Hope to try it again in the future and update this rating.

BBB63 (6038) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - AUG 24, 2013
Cask Conditioned @ brewpub: Pours opaque with a creamy beige head and very good lace. The aroma has roasted, chocolate, charred, tangerine, mango, pink grapefruit, piney and herbal esters. The taste is moderately citrus and tropical fruit over layer of roasted coffee and bittersweet cocoa. Some pine, herbs and earthy ash as well. The mouth feel is smooth and moderate bodied with a slightly ashy and metallic finish. A nice hoppy stout that is borderline on a Black IPA.
