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.

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 (5625) - 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.

Thanks to Alex for pulling this bottle out at Mike’s bachelor-party tasting. Served in a Savor snifter. Pours dark brown with a fairly-massive mocha-colored head and a nice bit of light lacing as it goes down. The nose brings some chocolate and roast, bordering on Whoppers candy. Behind that, I got a bit of light cherry-skin character and red and black licorice. Also, a bit of light brown-paper character toward the end. The flavor brings a lot of malted chocolate as well as a faint roast character. The mouthfeel helps this one along--medium body that brings forward a creamy and smooth brew. The finish is somewhat dry and is definitely lacking in booziness. I seemed to be in the minority not really digging this one, but it had a lot of interesting components and was something I had wanted to try for quite awhile now.
