Tmoney99 (13066) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUL 18, 2012
Bottle shared by beerpig317. Poured black color with medium brown frothy head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Medium to heavy roasted chocolate malt, cinnanon and alcohol aroma. Medium to full body with a smooth texture and flat carbonation. Medium to heavy roasted sweet flavor with a medium to heavy sweet finish of moderate duration to long duration. My expectations where exceeded with a very good stout.

Dogbrick (10879) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JAN 22, 2013
Bottle from batch #29 shared by a friend. Brownish-black pour with a medium thin tan head that diminishes steadily to an outer ring. Stringy lacing on the glass. Aroma of chocolate, malt and a bit of spice. Medium-bodied with flavors of chocolate malt, raisins and subtle chili peppers. The finish is malty with a mild peppery aftertaste. Pretty good all around.

daknole (10799) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - AUG 16, 2012
Super dark brown pour, tan head that disappeared immmediately. Aroma is incredibly weird and hard to get through. Smells of burning plastic, some spicy peppers, toasted pumpernickel bread. Flavor is much better and has some nice spice, chocolate, cayenne, finishes spicy.

crossovert (10758) - Illinois, USA - AUG 31, 2012
UPDATED: NOV 26, 2013 Thin dark brown pour. Fizzy quickly dissipating head. Smell has a more butterscotchy component than the other. There is a ncie cinnamon hit. A bit of sugar. This really doesn’t seem like a stout to me. It is like a sweet brown ale. Prickly carbonation. Some spice in the flavor. Anchos add a bit of flavor with dark fruits, the cinammon is spicy in the back of the throat, but very mildly so. I don’t like it as much as the original, there is possibly an off lfavor im tasting, or its jsut too sweet, i dk. The wax is a bit of an afterthought, I don’t think this will improve with age. Had thsi again on draft recently, loved it.

Bottle @ Crooked Stave Zwanze Day 2012, shared by arminjewell. Thanks Armin! Pours a deep black appearance with a dark brown head. Dark chocolate, light coffee, fairly roasty, dark fruity, just a touch spicy aroma. The chilis mostly kick in near the end after you get all of the roasty chocolate, plum/raisin goodness. I was pleasantly surprised by this one.
