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.

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

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.
