SG111 (972) - New York, USA - MAR 23, 2016
Tap at the source. Pours black. Small head. Aroma is caramel, fig, dark fruits. Flavor is fair fruit, fig, raisins, totally an English ale. Yea, I mean it’s an English style winter warmer. You should know the flavor of this before trying it. Oh, it’s fine

TXHomeBrew (1) - Houston, Texas, USA - JAN 11, 2016 does not count
@ 45 deg F, cocoa dominates aroma with hints of toasted bread. Has a nice coffee-like bitterness, but it clashes with the up-front sweetness of the dark malt profile. Medium body. Goes down easy. Very solid beer.

ttoadee (1155) - Austin, Texas, USA - JAN 3, 2016
Dark pour, finger of tan head. Nose is roasted malt. Bittersweet. Middle is coco and dark fruit. At the finish, "Someone got malt in my chocolate; someone got chocolate in my malt." Worth the effort.

DenverLogan (996) - MileHi, Colorado, USA - MAR 18, 2015
From a 22 oz bottle. Pours dark brown with large head in a Lost Abbey chalice. Aroma of chocolate, vanilla, amber malts, light bourbon. Significant carbonation and mouthfeel. Flavors of rich malts, milk chocolate, oak, light bourbon. Rich, flavorful, relatively easy drinking and not too big in alcohol.

ZacM612 (476) - San Antonio, Texas, USA - JAN 21, 2015
Super dark brown, almost black with almost no head. Aroma of fruit and dark roast coffee. Flavor is similar, with a little alcohol and some coffe-like bitterness. Pretty good. On deck...the bourbon barrel aged variety.

DeanF (2195) - Alberta, CANADA - DEC 27, 2014
Aroma is a nice fruitiness mixed with coffee notes. Has a nice black body with minimal head. Flavour is sweet cocoas and coffee with a hint of apple. Smooth mouthfeel. It’s a fine and unique stout.

Long Neck--> pint glass. Dark brown, large head. Aroma of rum raisin and molasses with notes of vanilla and pecan, very complex and hard to pin down. Hoppy taste, aftertaste brings back most of the aroma plus subtle spices and notes of espresso at the finish. Alcohol well concealed. Too much hops for the interesting mix of flavors but I don't notice it so much after a couple sips. It's a very decent ale and very tasty. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
