Bottle shared by alexsdad06. Poured dark brown color with medium creamy tan head that lasted with excellent lacing. Aroma is very complex with roasted choclolate and hop. Full body with a smooth texture and flat carbonation. Moderate to heavy chocolate bittersweet flavor and moderate to heavy complex dark sweet finish of long duration. Standout complex beer that went well with a cigar at the Bengal game.

Growler split with mcberko. Pours a solid black with a small tan head. Aroma of espresso beans, dark chocolate, roasted malts. Flavour of intense coffee, dark chocolate, roasted malts, light smoke, wood. Leaves a light warming sensation in the chest. Full bodied, lovely and roasted, but seems a little thin in comparison to other stouts I have had. Still very enjoyable regardless.

750mL growler, sent from Glouglouburp (thanks Dany!), split many ways, pours black with a small tan head. Roasted aroma with lots of espresso - rich roasted qualities dominate. Flavour of very rich roasted malts, perfect balance between chocolate and espresso, with a chocolate and roasted finish. Great depth and body. Excellent.

3.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Chocolate colored pour; rich, savory aroma of dark fruits and warm spices, strongly suggestive of the coffee and in the best way. Flavor is light, creamy and airy; nougat, cream, coffee, and an oddly perfect touch of citrusy hops. Lightly dry and a mite too thin texturally; finishes dry and bitter. Solid stuff.

4.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Drank on tap (12 oz) at Three Penny Taproom in Montpelier, Vermont, on July 29, 2011. Black, no head. Aroma of barley and oats very malty, with notes of sweet coffee. Bitter coffee taste, barley very malty, good caffeinated bitterness. It’s just one of their beers, but I understand why they are so appreciated!
