Wow! for a none aged brew, this is full of wood nose. This had a great body with brown head. Real full body, lots of caramel and vanilla and coffee. Great bit alcohol presence.

Nice stiff smell. Creamy texture. Starts smokey, but a very abrupt sharp ending leads to blackened malt flavors.

Pours black with tan head. Roasted malt aroma with cocoa, dark dried fruits and coffee. Roasted malt and sweet caramel malt flavor with a tart dried cherry flavor followed with a dark cocoa and roasted coffee finish. Really nice stout.

1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Boiled cabbage and charcoal nose. Black, thin tan head. Sweet and vegetal. Rather cloying cane sugar with boiled cabbage. The off flavors subside leaving a drier but still sweet licorice note at midpalate and a welcome charred oak finish. Medium body. Significantly tainted. Such a pity.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Tap at Blues Bar. Black with a thin tan head. Dark chocolate, light roast coffee, hazelnut, and alcohol. Taste is dryly sweet. Body is heavier with a syrupy feel.

12 oz Bottle from a four pack at marianos. Very dark, some Amber and red at the edges. Very little head. Aroma has lots of malt and alcohol with some sweet chocolate and cherry. Hop, chocolate, and sweet malt on the palate. Pretty good stout. I wish it had more hop to it, but it isn’t overwhelmingly sweet either.

Pours a dark brown with a tan foam head. Aroma is roast, chocolate, and some booze. Flavors are similar, with a surprising and refreshing sweetness. Delicious.

Pours dark black with small amount dark brown head. Aroma sweet, coffee, chocolate. Tastes similar, more sweet than other stouts, not a lot of alcohol heat. Lighter but pleasant mouthfeel. Overall very good beer.

Aroma is roasted malt and chocolate with some alcohol maybe a hint of dark fruit..taste is malty and dark chocolate
..but kind of get an off flavor like sucking on an aluminum bar. Not my favorite..might want to get a draft of this just to see the differences.
