4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Poured from a bottle. Dark brown, almost black with a small, thin tan head. Huge nose on this one, with some sweet hop aromas, mocha, graham cracker. Super-smooth mouthfeel with the perfect balance of hops and malty sweetness. I wouldn’t say that this one tastes especially like chocolate, oatmeal, coffee, etc., but it’s just so well-balanced. You definitely get that "green" flavor from the hops, as well as a bit of coffee and milk chocolate. Really well-done.

Enjoyed at the Atlanta Hilton. Very delicate roast flavor with a hint if coffee and chocolate endgame. Not a massive powerhouse, but nice enough for an evening...

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from...some trade. April 2013 bottle i think. Popped open with huge carbonation. Didn’t gush out of the bottle but pulled a full glass of foam. Nice roasty, chocolate aroma with hints of vanilla and nuts. Taste is dry, but big hits of sweet, dark chocolate. The sweetness kind of overtakes and the only balance is lingering, kinda burned malts.

Pint served at Engine 11 in Atlanta.
Dark malt with some faint burnt elements that come to the fore on the finish. Plenty of coffee in the nose but very little in the taste. Lasting dark malt finish is a strong point, with the light burnt quality not detracting from my enjoyment. I generally do not like a burnt quality but here it adds to the strong dark roasted flavor. The mouthfeel is more substantial than Guinness, although not to the extent of the rich flavor.
O - not very complex but one of the richest roasted malt flavors I have seen in a ’regular’ stout.

Bomber. Pours a dark brown color with a thin frothy tan head. Fair head retention. Aroma of roasted malts, chocolate, raisin and an earthy hop finish. The taste is bitter chocolate, roasted malts, coffee, herbal hops. Medium bodied. Solid stout.
