4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pitch black color, dark brown head that doesn’t last more than for a while. Marked aromas to roasted coffee, espresso and burnt malts. Flavors: coffee, liquorice, some spicy notes and black fruits. I can’t distinguish the wheat. Medium development, not a dry finish, medium to full bodied. Nice beer.

Bottle shared thanks to thebsmitty! Pours an opaque black with dissipating tan head. Aroma is heavy booze with roasted malt and slight dry wheat. Taste follows, less of the booze and more of the roast. Not bad, a little thin but definitely tasty.

Bottle. Pours black with big dark tan head. Smell is not much.. A bit of chocolate malt, burnt coffee. Taste is sweet chocolate, cocoa, espresso, with caramelized banana, hint of creamy marshmallow and hint of caramel finish. Low medium carbonation, a bit oily. Love this.

Rich roasted malty goodness. Big pure black poor with slight head remaining. Thick, velvety and not what I expected with the mention of wheat in there.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: NOV 17, 2013 Bottle, Batch 383, 9%. Pours a very dark brown with quickly settling, coarse, orange brown head. Insignificant lacing. Aroma is quite smoky, meaty, bacon/ham, heavily roasted malt, chocolate, mild alcohol. Flavor is sweet up front, roasted mat, chocolate and strong smoke finish. More smokiness and less roast than I had expected, though the roasted character comes out more as it warms. Soft carbonation, medium-full body, and smooth texture. Smoky, rich, enjoyable.

Bottled. Very dark brown pour with a dark brown-orange head, very thick. The aroma is very smoky, with a sweet malty note. The taste is very sweet to start, not very full bodied but smooth. The finish is very malty and light notes of smokey tar. Overall a rich stout, very complex and smokey.
