pours like coffee with some light shining through on the edges with a minimal head. aromas of coffee, vanilla, chocolate and slight coconut. the taste is very roasty with tons of coffee, I am not picking up a ton of bourbon but there is some vanilla present. Mouthfeel is pretty thin for a stout especially one at 8 percent abv. I am not saying this is bad but it is kind of weak for the style.

12oz bottle of beer available to me that I got in a shitty trade. Another after work Thanksgiving beer with the squad. Pours black with a small tan head. Aroma of bourbon, oak, caramel, and hints of bad coffee. Taste mimics the nose with a thin mouthfeel.

Mild. No bitter. Could have a thicker consistency but it’s still in line with some of the other stouts I’ve had. It’s a fair stout and I would drink it again.

Bottle from Liquid Assets. Dark black body with thin tan head. Nose of malts, licorice, vanilla and coffee. Taste is similar of coffee, malts, milky and a bit alcy at 8%. Very oily and creamy texture. Good stuff.

italianjohn (2599) - Penndel, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 19, 2015
Black pour with a ruby hue and thin off white head .... Aroma of fresh coffee, caramel and roasted malts along with a nice chocolate flavor .... Taste is of some dry oak, roasted malts, coffee, semi sweet chocolate and caramel malts ..... There are slight hints of bourbon .... Body is thin and the finish is malty and a bit dry .... Shame the taste is not as good as the aroma

Bottle at America on tap. Rich caramel with hints of roast and plenty of vanilla and butterscotch that at times seems quite bitter. Worse than I thought it would be.

Vanilla and light smoke smell, very dark black with a touch a sediment in suspension...taste is a touch bitter and watery...nothing very good...pretty bold flavor but hard to place what it is, wish it was a bit sweeter...mostly just bitterness

Black color. Thin , beige head . Aroma of coffee , roasted malt and good bourbon. Taste is rather sweet and weak with strange acidity in the end . I was really disappointed by the taste.

Pours very dark like stout always does. Aroma has a lot going on, coffee, dark chocolate, vanilla and burtn roasted malt. Taste doesn’t quite deliver what is promised through aroma, rather sweet, mild to medium bitter and a strong salty soy sauce like taste. Not unpleasant but a little underwhelming, also next to no head. Rather thing in the mouth. Overall certainly drinkable but not a classic stout
