3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Tap at Provisions Market in Orange, CA. Ink pour with wicked red foam. Big staining on the glass. Nose is mega fresh spruce and spicy forest needle. Almost like this was Gin barrel aged. Fresh juniper. Taste is mega rich, silky, spicy with dry body. Some Gin heat flashes. Surprisingly good. Dry, dusty palate. Melted dark chocolate up front, very bitter, with a incredibly dusty, dry finish. Not papery thankfully. My RIS loving wife gave it the thumbs up.

UPDATED: AUG 12, 2013 thick full bodied stout, great nose and mouthfeel but maybe a bit over hoped. the final lingering bitterness kind of kills all other aspects. this beer will probably be great in a year or two.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle shared by dudeabide. Poured a hazy black color with a moderate frothy brown head that lasted and produced fair lacing. Moderate to heavy roasted chocolate malt, coffee, dark sweet aroma. Medium to full body with a smooth texture and flat carbonation. Moderate to heavy complex dark sweet flavor with a moderate to heavy smooth dark sweet finish. Very well balanced complex stout. This is a solid beer.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
22 oz. bottle shared by dudeabide. Looks great; pours a deep, opaque midnight brown color with a small brown head. The aroma is unbelievably alcoholic- hot and bitter in the nose, with bitter dark chocolate, charred wood, and some brownies. Flavor is very bitter dark chocolate, burnt wood, maple, and toasted brown sugar. Full-bodied, with moderate carbonation, and a bitter, extremely roasty mouthfeel. The intensity masks any subtlety of the maple and cherry wood smoke. They went overboard on this one.
