This thick, rich ale was brewed with plenty of caramel and roasted malts, and subtly spiced with American Chinook and Willamette hops. It boasts flavors of chocolate and coffee, along with raisins and dried fruit soaked in sherry. We’ve accentuated the natural smokiness of the brew by adding a small amount of beechwood-smoked malt and aging the brew in an oak whiskey barrel, which also adds notes of oak and vanilla.

BOD 9/23/13. Solid black pour with a thick tan head that laces well and lasts. Nose is of roast, chocolate and has hints of dark fruit (raisins) against a malt sweetness. Not quite full bodied with a slick creamy mouthfeel over normal carbonation. The complex taste profile is well balanced with many good flavors. Against a sweet background, it begins with a touch of roast, progresses to chocolate and ends with raisins against a touch of smoke and alcohol. The finish is smooth with a slight residual alcohol burn over charred oak. My first Grand Teton offering and it is an exceptional stout.

Bomber with the boys, like the last two. Pours a dark black color with a small java head. Nose is malty and chocolate . Taste is light with some mild espresso and rich malt, no real sweetness. Finish lingers mildly without any real flavor. Quaff Score 7 / 10

Pours pitch black with a brown head and aroma of roasted malt and chocolate. Taste is strong, of deep chocolate and roasted malt with alcohol, liquorice, and coffee with a brunt, roasted chocolate finish. Delicious stout

For not liking this type of beer and not an expert on knowing what I am tasting. I would say this is a pretty good beer if you like the dark Guinness type beer

GT2 (8997) - San Diego County, California, USA - NOV 13, 2013
Tap at Yard House in Riverside, CA. Served in Pint glass, holy balls. Rocky tan foam, good lacing. Mild cola fizz bubbles. Big impending hop content. Acidic coffee nose, sweet strawberry, artificial strawberry ice cream. Taste is rich, somewhat sweet, very coffee acidic, sanitizer, soap. Long, bitter coffee and lemon finish. Hefty bitterness almost comes across as black IPA. Overall too soapy and lemony.

On tap at Sterb’s for Darkness Eve event. Didn’t stand up to the other stouts that night, but good on the oak and vanilla aspects.

Barreras (1115) - Diamond Bar, California, USA - NOV 10, 2013
Pours a deep black color with coco and coffee malt aroma. Taste is rich with dark chocolate malt mixed with roasted coffee. A slight oaked taste that was not overwhelming. A smooth tasting beer for the style.
