corby112 (2804) - philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 12, 2015
Pitch black and opaque with a two finger frothy beige head that slowly settles into a thick, lasting ring. Very good retention, taking a while to settle and leaving large steaks of soapy lacing behind. Sweet, slightly roasted dark malt aroma with a touch of piney, resinous hops countered by roast and sweeter dark malt notes. Grassy resins along with roasted coffee, burnt malt, toast and oatmeal. This is followed by sweeter desert-like malts with some lighter cocoa, caramel, toffee and licorice. Nose isn’t unpleasant bad but nothing really stand out. Medium body with a nice balance of earthy, piney bitterness and roasted dark malt countered by lighter malt sweetness. Dry and earthy with subtle pine needle, grass and oily resins complimenting the dark roast. Hints of coffee bean, burnt sugar, toast, oatmeal and bitter dark chocolate. Sweet, almost vinous, dark malts balance things out with hints of licorice, bakers chocolate, caramel, fudge and toffee. This is a very nice, well balanced stout with a complex flavor profile and well masked ABV. Very easy to drink at 10.2%. I’m excited that I finally got to try this one.

Smooth, small beige head, lots of dark flavors. Slick and wine like, burnt toast and bacon on the morning after, refreshing, revitalizing and welcoming.

Jesterdeal (1985) - Marlton, New Jersey, USA - FEB 2, 2014
On tap at Barcade. This one was all over the place. Aroma was licorice and sweet chocolate. Pours black and sticky with a small white film. Taste is chocolate, licorice, and burnt toast. Super sweet and sticky without having a roasty enough complexity. Meh.

10 oz. draft at Barcade, Philadelphia. Six point brews this for the Barcade chain as an exclusive beer after it had been retired from the brewery. This was served way to cold, when it warmed and opened it it was nice. Aroma of melt chocolate bar and roasted barley. Thin tan head that lined the glass. Flavor is starts with sweet chocolate and molasses, turns to burnt coffee bean and end with a light traces of dark fruits. I get figs. The body of the stout is on the full side with the alcohol hidden really really well. Solid.

blipp (7603) - San Diego, California, USA - DEC 11, 2012
Bottle. Pours near black with a beige head. Roasted malts, caramel sweetness, dark fruits, and some lingering roasted bitterness. Not bad.

cakanator (452) - South Hadley, Massachusetts, USA - NOV 9, 2011
750ml batch 74 bottle 592. Pours medium dark with little to no head. Amazing aroma of burnt sugars and some coffee/mocha. Pallet was spot on hints of citrus up front, smooth with chocolate roast through the mid and finishes creamy. Not bad considering its an 05, the body level has managed to stay mid to full. I’ll see where the other two bottles I have take me someday.

riversideAK (5938) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - JUL 16, 2011
Oxidized dark malts on the nose. Soy, some dark smoke/burt notes. Dark chocolate cakey notes. Black pour tan head turns into a ring. Dark as fuck. Nice sweet roasty and smokey flavors. Dry and sweet but not full of over the top residual sugars, Oxidized, but flavorful. Mellowed to an awesomness. Really solid sweet/dry. Good shit.
