Pour is an oily black wit ha small tan head, maybe half a finger thick. Nose is of coffee and some roasty malt scents. Taste is similar to the nose, dominated by the taste of burnt coffee. Light on the tongue for 8%, but still nothing special, taste if quite bitter.

Sweet stout with coffee,soy sauce, smoke, nuts, roasted malt and a hint of vanilla. Pretty good but I think itís a little overpriced for the quality you get.

Aroma of chocolate/coffee. Pours black with a nice tan head. Tastes like chocolate and coffee with a little bitterness. Nice.

Inky black with a one finger head that didnít last but left great lacing and a film of head along the sides of the glass. Roasted caramel malts and dark fruits dominate the smell. Tastes of dark roasted malts with the usual suspects of chocolate and a touch of coffee, plus a notable hops bitterness. Overall flavor is strong and packs quite an alcohol punch. Feels full and slightly oily on the tongue, fair carbonation and a lingering bitterness. Alcohol warming. Within the style itís pretty drinkable, but not something Iíd want to drink every day.

Pretty good for Schlafly! Very malty, dry in the palate as it should be. Dark molasses, chocolate, roasted coffee. Some dark fruit flavor too.

Jabic (431) - Brigantine, New Jersey, USA - JAN 26, 2013
Ar: Very faint hint of coffee, a bit of mossy hops - some clean alcohol. Ap: Black, opaque - large tan head with good retention and a thick cap of fine-bubbled lacing. T: Rich caramel and coffee, moderately sweet - high bitterness, herbal - chocolate and caramel, rich malt flavor - clean alcohol warmth. P: Medium-full body with high carbonation - rounded palate - finish is medium-dry. O: Very nice extra stout - robust, with a firm bitterness and a nice amount of sweetness that brings out a lot of the rich and roast flavors.

My first sip of this ended in me smiling from ear to ear...with the exception of the year round staple oatmeal stout, I really dig all schlafly stouts, but this may be the best of them. Very roasty and big yet drinkable. I look forward to drinking this again next year.

Malt character closer to imperial stout, than a dry stout. Great flavor with pronounced tones of chocolate and coffee. Slightly bitter aftertaste. Great beer.

Pours opaque, brown head. Aroma is somewhat muted but maybe thatís because I just got it out of the fridge. Creamy body. Itís pretty smooth, and has a good rich flavor, slight roast, but itís not really bitter at all. It doesnít particularly stand out. Still, itís a nice brew, reasonably priced, and fairly strong without saying so. Iíll probably pick up some more of this stuff soon.

12 oz bottle poured into a standard pint glass. Pours a very dark brown, almost black color with a one-finger tan head that leaves a good amount of lacing. Aroma of malts, brown sugar, raisins, alcohol, a bit of chocolate and roasty coffee. Taste is roasted malts up front with dark chocolate, lactose, hops, alcohol and hints of coffee. Definitely a sweet stout. Full body, creamy texture, average carbonation, long finish of hop bitterness and roasted malts. Very nice and tasty, but ultimately just an average stout.
