750mL Bottle: Pours dark black with bubbly, tan head. Aroma of chocolate, slight spice, coffee. Taste is slightly spicy (nutmeg and cinnamon?) slightly oaked, slightly chocolate. Smooth, nothng is overbearing, but nothing makes it really stand out either.

EHouse (170) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - MAR 14, 2012
Pours a deep mahogany with quickly receding head. Aromas of spice, light oak, and apricots/prunes. Medium spritzy body of raisins/figs/prunes, light hints of deeply roasted grain and an underlining flavor of soy sauce. Oak only comes out in the finish. Once again disappointed by old Mr. Adams.

Nice strong brown head of fine bubbles. Head reduces very slowly. Some funkyness and tart cherries in the aroma. Wet oak, spices and chocolate malts. The bit of tartness makes the mouth salivate with anticipation. Color is a very dark brown with a bit of red around the edges. First sip is a little bit metallic then it dissipates to a creamy smooth mouthfeel with more tartness, some leather, a light chocolate and dark fruit. The body of this brew is a bit thinner than I expected and the alcohol presence is very well hidden for a 9% abv brew. Lingering dry malts with a bit of cocoa powder. A pretty darn good brew and a very interesting combination of flavors.

MrBeerFanatic (905) - Friona, Texas, USA - MAR 4, 2012
Pours a high carbed...be much better aged...pepsi or dark caramel coloured. Aromas of bubblegum, sour apple, nutmeg, roasted caramel in the back,light chocolate, and light coffee...Wow very complex aromas... Flavors of light oak, spice nutmeg, light peach, spice, light toffee. Notice a slight peach note from the nose as i breathe out. Lightly sweet/ bitter, sour, medium to high carbonation, acidy, complex and somewhat strange and almost not a stout at all. Mostly belgian. Interesting. Should be aged a few heart.

Pours deep cola color. Head is thick and rich. Smells of caramel, vanilla, some fruit. Head tastes just as it smells. Brew has mocha hit you first with vanilla hanging on the pallet. Darn fine stout ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Frank (3601) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - FEB 19, 2012
Cloudy brown in color with a large bubbled and short lasting head, this is not the most attractive beer. Its nose is vinous and fruity. Raisin and cherry flavors are brought out by a light sweetness and a hint of tartness. There is also a bit of a metallic note and the character which seems to have come from the barrel aging does not work well. It adds an stuffy oldness w/o any sophistication, like a bottle left on the shelf too long. It’s full bodied, sticky and heavy. I am into the fancied bottles this comes in but the beer is just not very good.

Dark brown pour with a tan head. Aroma is coffee, licorice, dark fruit, plums, figs. Flavor is pleasantly roast with a good hint of dark fruit. Some licorice notes. The beer is chewy, but in a good way. Nice mouthfeel. Good beer.

Cybercat (4288) - Georgia, USA - FEB 10, 2012
Although it pops like champagne when you open it (watch for flying corks!) it doesn’t fizz like nobody’s business. It pours a deep, warm, opaque sable with a rather typical tan head that doesn’t stick around too long. Smoky aroma has a strong fruity overtone, mainly apple and pear with a hint of banana, and earthy and miso touches. Flavor has a malty core with subtle nutty, earthy, molasses, fruity, roast coffee and chocolate notes. It tastes like a good Belgian style ale blended with a stout, and the different aspects of these two styles marry well. Smooth, edgy texture has above-average body and leaves a nutty, earthy, smoky finish.
