Very dark pour, foamy tan head. Weak earthy scent. Very rich and sweet for a stout. watery. Earthy and rich. Very sweet. Sweeter than expected. Seems a touch boozy, What %? Only 5.1 odd. Seemed stronger than that. This is alight, a good gift as I’ve never tried it but I wouldn’t go out of my way to grab another.

Included as part of a sampler at the restaurant. I found most of the beers here to be very well done. And the food was great too. Can’t go wrong with anything at this place.

Draft at brewpub. Pours black with a thin khaki head. Slight roasted malt note on the tongue. I’m not getting much lactose and since it’s not on nitro the silkiness is less pronounced. On the other hand the roasted qualities come out loud and clear. Finishes clean. Not brewed strictly to style but solid nonetheless.

22oz bottle. Black in color with brown edges and a larger sized off white head. Older bottle, so if I have the chance, I will revisit. Slight infection with a tart finish. Not a drain pour tartness, and a little enjoyable, but would like to try this fresh (someone send me a bottle).

Totally natural, delicious sweet stout with just a hint of acridness to balance the sweetness. Creamy body, so quaffable.

Paid $9.99 for a growler @ Table and Vine. Used a standard pint glass. Deep brown around the edges and black in the center of the liquid. Slow dissipating head that was tan in color. Pleasant nose of deep roasted barley, oats and slight chocolate. Taste is roasted, bitter chocolate, slight coffee and touches of molasses. The oats give the body medium – full, almost chewy body. Real solid and with a lower ABV easy to drink in larger amounts.

On cask at the brewpub. Nice, crisp heart fall soul-warming roast aroma. The cask lightness really made this one drinkable, while satisfying the craving for dark, dark, dark beer. Balanced.

22oz capped, thanks Tom. Black with a creamy tan head. Good god, what a butter bomb! Nose is pure caramel quad pump movie theater popcorn. Thin body and light carb. Not as much butter in the flavor, some stout come through, super oily and some coffee...one of the bigger butter bombs in a while for me.

If i have ever smelled butter in a beer this is it... holy shit. Every time I smell I go into convulsions. God awful qc nose. Some stout in there if you give it a chance, there is some roast and oat notes, but the butter murders this one. Dark brown pour thinnish beige head. Salty butter, awful. Roast underneath, oily butter with roasted notes in the finish. Oof, this one is not good.
