Pours black with light brown head. A strong roasted malt aroma with chocolate and dark fruit malts. A strong mix of flavors including licorice, dark alcohol, sweet chocolate, and roasted malts. Both a sweet malt and dark alcohol aftertaste.

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.

AirForceHops (5777) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - JAN 26, 2014
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.

Travlr (19908) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - APR 10, 2013
