From City beer store SF: Pours black color, clear, with unstable light brown head, which immediately transforms itself to a ring around the glass. Visually low carbonation. Aroma: very, very fresh fruity aroma, which takes on blueberry, plums, prunes, resins, with dark malts, which takes on coffee, dark and milk chocolate, hint of honey, vanilla, oak, toffee, yoghurt... Similar is flavor: very intense, with notes of espresso coffee, cocoa nibs, cocoa powder, hint of dark chocolate, supported with hop flavors, which takes on dark fruits, which I mentioned yet before. Finish is sticky dry. Body is medium, texture silky soft, carbonation is low.

Had this on tap at Midnight Sun about a year ago and forgot to rate it. Colour... essentially black with a thin tan head. Nose...dark chocolate, anise and vanillin. Palate...whoa! This is one velvety beer! Thick and creamy with plenty of roasty goodness, burnt caramel, wet earth, anise extract, maduro cigar and plenty of booze on the finish, esp. for only 8% ABV. This is a small beer?? Iíd say that this is a GIANT among small beers!

On tap at Capitol Beer & Tap Room. Pours Dark brown with a rich tan head and a chocolate aroma. There is a smooth chocolate and dark molasses flavor with a dry finish. Very tasty, especially for a "small" beer.

Bottle. Pours dark black with a medium to large creamy tan head, slow to dissipate and nice lacing. Aroma is very roasty, chocolate and vanilla. Not really getting maple. Flavor is light sweet and medium bitter, nice and roasty, cocoa notes, a touch of smokiness. Body is a bit light and watery, but otherwise an excellent stout.

RedSox2004 (1685) - Pacific Palisades, California, USA - JAN 25, 2015
Pitch black with a one-finger tan head and no lace. Aromas of dark chocolate, coffee - the chocolate in particular is wonderful - as well as dark fruit, brown sugar and earth. Bittersweet, like bakerís, chocolate flavors with earth and dried dark fruit accents. Full body, moderate carbonation, creamy smooth mouthfeel and a very dry finish.
