GT2 (8432) - San Diego County, California, USA - JUN 9, 2012
651mL thanks to savnac. Near ink pour with a mega beige head. Creamy head with mega lace. Nose is spicy chocolate, vanilla, sweet cocoa, slight fruit. Some sweet berries. Taste is dry, bitter, a bit ashy/dirty. Still mega dry and ashy. Just not a lot of creaminess. Pretty abrasive. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

BMan1113VR (7858) - Los Angeles, California, USA - DEC 24, 2011
Bottle with many thanks to americanbrew. Pours with a very deep, viscous and dark, black body with a tan head that lasts. Good lace and light legs. Aromas are of vanilla, cocoa, roast, earthy, light pine, spruce, brown sugar, and some anise/licorice. Flavors are of brown sugar, anise and plums up front, a bit of dusty and chalky cocoa mid palate, fruity and jammy with dark fruits and lingering esters towards the finish. Earthy and pine like as well. Smooth, creamy mouth, light carbonation and alcohol with a fuller body. Maybe the spruce has faded, but his is pretty tasty as is.

nuplastikk (4396) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 25, 2011
22oz bottle. Deep opaque black with a beige head. Really nice Stout, big, but doesn’t come off imperial. Quite unique. Big chocolate tones, rich cocoa peanut butter action. Very mellow and subdued, light smoky coffee tones. I don’t get much spruce, the thick specialty malts sort of cover it up. Solid Stout, quite well done.

Bottle. Pours black with tan head. Aroma of dark roasted grain and bakers chocolate with a hint of spruce. Flavor is much the same but with a bit more "umph". Medium-heavy body with medium high carbonation....overall, unique and pretty tasty!
