3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours an opaque dark brown with a foamy tan head, aroma is mild with a slight sourness. Not overly flavorful with some belgian yeast character and a dry roasty finish. This beer is pulling in two directions but neither really works that great. Thin feel and a bit over carbonated.

The shape of the bottle stands out on the shelf so it caught my attention.
Pours a dark black with a small head that dissipates. Very aromatic chocolate , coffee. Goes down smooth with plenty of carbonation. It says on the bottle to age it for years, but I couldn’t wait that long. Would try again.

Man this was bad. I’m not sure what they were trying to do but the belgian yeast and spice flavors dont’ play well with the stout attempt at all. It don’t make sense on the nose or the tongue.

Chocolate malts on the nose with hints of Brett and wood. Pours black with a thin off white head. Fruit upfront with spicy Brett followed by chocolate malts and oaky vanilla. Trace hints of funk in the background very nice!!

Pours thin and over carbonated. I get no oak or spices in the nose or taste. Taste is undesirable. Mostly Belgian but in the worst ways. Not a stout at all. Drain pour.

Savannah, Ga. - Habersham Beverage Warehouse - 750 ml cage corked bottle that is shaped like an anti-tank grenade. Black as motor oil pour with a clingy off-white head. Aroma has some chocolate accents, a bit of pipe tobacco, a touch of molasses. Flavor is full-bodied and rich with some bittersweet chocolate, a bit of molasses, some overripe dates, a bit of red wine. Belly-warming and filling. Thick, sticky rich mouthfeel - overall, pretty solid.

Impromptu tasting on my birthday. This is not classifed as a stout on Ratebeer. This is good, b/c it’s nowhere near a stout. The aroma is sweet, bread, fruit, licorice. The appearance is a deep black, tan head. The flavor is cola, pepper, chocolate, caramel. The finish is pepper, light hops. Medium in body. OK. Not outstanding.
