Bottle... Pours black with flashes of burnt-orange and a small, creamy mushroom-colored head. The aroma is a lavish trio of milk chocolate, roasted tree nuts and vanilla. Medium to full-bodied with a lightly creamy mouthfeel and tingly carbonation. The flavor is lightly sweet, milk chocolaty and roasty with a touch of nuttiness. Finishes with a gentle and delicious kiss of vanilla. Bottle courtesy of biggsbowler!

12 oz bottle shared by Spencer. The pour is a dark brown/light black with a lighter tan head and some spots of lace. The aroma is pretty hoppy. There is a light roast and some good bitterness. On the back end there is a decent amount of cocoa and a light booze. The flavor is quite hoppy up front. There is a light roast, but it's really plain. The mouth feel is surprisingly creamy. The aftertaste lingers with a dry cocoa butter aftertaste.

Pours to a dark, black body with a very nice aroma of chocolate malts. The first sip starts with a smooth malty, chocolate flavor and finishes with a harsh bitter roasted coffee. Very well rounded beer from a new kid on the block.

Tastes like it smells - very rich - chocolate, roast, earth, some leather. Well-bittered. Deep rootbeer black-brown, almost opaque, but you could see some light through the bottom corners of the pint. Camel colored head. Mouthy/chewy. On tap, Taco Mac, Suwanee (Atlanta).

3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
From the 12 fl. oz. bottle. This comes from a trade from as non-RB member. The pour is jet black. It is like India ink and about as black as it can get. Modest but lasting off-white head.On the nose I pick up spent coffee grinds, dark malts, and earthy hops. Thin to medium body makes that its weakest feature. Good malty and coffee character on the taste with those coffee notes intermingled. Smooth on the palate. Reasonably drinkable. Dry ending.

Wonderful example of a straightforward stout. Malty with chocolate, coffee, and vanilla with the perfect amount of hops to keep it from being too sweet.
