StefanSD (2131) - Lakeside, California, USA - DEC 2, 2011
Guest tap at Alpine Brewpub. Pours a thick black color with a tan haed that has fair retention. The aroma is medium with roasted acorns and biter burnt toast. The flavor is similar with lots of roasted nuts, black breads, molasses, mocha, coffee and biter walnuts. The palate is full, smooth and creamy with lively carbonation. Finishes long, dry and earthy. Overall: Very tasty powerhouse of a stout.

Dixonian (1561) - Plano, Texas, USA - AUG 2, 2011
On tap @ Pizza Port San Clemente. Pitch black with lots of lasting tan head. Great Imperial Stout aromas of chocolate, roasted malt, and vanilla - I picked up some bourbon as well and had to double check with the bartender that this wasn’t the barrel aged version (it wasn’t). Taste is creamy with lots of chocolate and roast. Slightly bitter but more on the sweet side.

A: The pour is pitch black with a thin layer of mocha colored head that sticks around for a surprisingly long time. S: A really rich and sweet nose on this beer. Lots of burnt sugar, licorice, and dark fruits to begin with. The roasted malt character is intense (as is the coffee) and there’s a bit of a dark chocolate thing going on as well. T: The roast and coffee start things off with a big bitter kick. That dies away quite abruptly and the sweetness really comes through. Lots of licorice, burnt sugar, molasses, and alcohol. M: The body is on the full side with a medium but smooth carbonation. D: Somehow I kept missing this beer, but I finally got to try it. I enjoyed it quite a bit, though it would have been to put away of large amount of this.
