March 17, 2013; 7.4% abv, 650 mL, tulip Nice dark chocolate and coffee aromas. Some cherry tartness cuts through the roasted flavours. Whiskey malts and vanilla also make it in there. Dark used motor oil colour with deep tan head of about 1 inch. Shrinks down pretty fast but leacves nice lace. Roast chocolate and coffee dominate with some light acidity. Booze kicks in with nice sweet whiskey flavours - nutmeg, smoke, sweet jerky, vanilla, other spices of some sort. Smooth milky mouthfeel and sharp carbonation lets your swirl this in your mouth a bit. This is surprisingly good. The sweetness, booze, and whiskey flavours makes this pretty enjoyable.

Very sweet, definitely at the forefront making it instantly noticeable as non-sessionable. Little to no hop presense, not getting any wood/oak indicators. Roasted malt character, some caramel and toffee. Slight warmth in the finish brings a whiskey comparison. Very smooth with the warmth. Great beer, but not my favorite style. Would be rated higher if not a personal reminder, because it is a great beer for the style.

Almost syrupy sweet with a faint whiskey note. Dark in color with a tan head. Smells boozy.

Growler. This is an ok stout with a decent whiskey back burner. Interesting but nothing special.

Berard (378) - Salem, New Hampshire, USA - FEB 13, 2015
Draft. Pours deep brown with thin white head that lingers thinly. Smells like banana creme pie. It's tasty. A bit thin for a stout. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

dlovell2 (995) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - FEB 10, 2015
Pours black with a thin tan head. Aroma is roasted malt, molasses, brown sugar, vanilla, oak, and Irish Whiskey booziness. Sweet roasted malt start with vanilla and toffee, caramel, and some cocoa. Some coffee notes with some dry oak flavors and Irish whiskey booziness and dark roasted malt finish.

BierMeHoos (211) - Maryland, USA - FEB 5, 2015
From the bottle. Appearance is dark brown. Aroma of whiskey, dark fruits, caramel and sweet malt. Taste is sweet with hints of coffee and whiskey. Palate medium in the mouth with great alcoholic warmth. Not at all overpowering just well balanced, pleasant and drinkable. More please.

hopscotch (9840) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - JAN 16, 2015
Bottle… Pours clear and practically black with flashes of crimson and a small, creamy, cappuccino head. Good retention. The nose is roasty and furnishes some vinous, dark, dried fruits. Medium to full-bodied with delicate carbonation. Incredibly roasty and a touch acrid with a pinch of salt in both the flavor and finish. Well-balanced. If anything, this leans a smidge toward the bitter side of balance.

Rune (8724) - Tromsø, NORWAY - NOV 16, 2014
330ml bottle from Vinmonopolet Langnes. Rocky, tan-coloured head that stayed well and left spotty lacing down the glass. Jet black coloured body in the glass. Smell of oak layered with caramel. Dark malty flavours with hints of caramel and chocolate on with a backdrop of oak vanilla. Dried fruity endnotes. Hidden alcohol. Smooth in the mouth. Nice, however rather unvaried and a tad too sweet (Tromsø 15.11.2014).

Bottle->nonic. Dark brown with small tan head. Roasted malt with chocolate, peat, and booze. Tasty but oily.
