bottle. pours a nice black with a dark brown head. smells of chocolate and a bit of roasty smoke. flavor is very milky, with a nice chocolate. finishes with an over the top roast flavor that lingers. body and mouthfeel were perfect for the flavors. if the roast was toned down this would be an amazing beer. that being said, it is still pretty fucking good.

Black with fair, creamy, tan head (but tasting from a growler) / Big, earthy nose of cigar box and coffee / Medium body, a touch watery, chewy, with good balance and finish / Flavors of tobacco and dark roast coffee, with unsweetened chocolate notes / Potentially very good, just needs to correct the body problems.

UPDATED: MAR 24, 2012 At Half acre. Somewhat bitter chocolate flavor and some bitter hop flavor but not much hop aroma. The hops didn’t quite work for me but not bad. Serving: Tap

6ish pour at Revolution Brewery grand opening. Black with a tan foamy head, quickly fading to leave some lace on the plastic cup. Smells of sweet chocolate, roasted characters and espresso. Medium bodied with a residual sweetness and a noble hop bitterness. Smells better than it tastes.

Enjoyed on tap at Goose Island Stout Fest 2012 in Chicago, IL. This was one of the more enjoyable stouts that I had throughout the day. App is pitch black, moderate to thick consistency, rich tan head. Aroma of chocolate, bit of lactose, cocoa, decent amount going on with the sweetness but it didn’t smell too much like a candy bar. Taste is very good, bit of peanuts, like Nutella, rich like a peanut butter consistency, very good stuff.

Pours deep black with notes of cocoa and roasted grain. The roast deepens with sweet notes of dark chocolate and coffee. Nice deep long finish.

Growler from the brewery courtesy of dwm1034. Thanks! Pours a jet black with a thin tan head. Aroma is nothing but chocolate. Medium to heavy on the palate with medium carbonation. Flavor is bitter chocolate and roasted malt. One of the better sweet stouts I’ve had. I hope they bottle this and make it a regular.
