Bottle at Dom and Jo’s. Pours pitch black with a medium foamy, brown head. Really pretty beer. Nice aroma of chocolate, molasses, and roasted malt. Very similar flavour but also some hop spice, plus hints of coffee and a little smoke. Very full mouthfeel.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Black with mahogany edges and only a rim of tan foam. Licorice, molasses and dark fruits on the nose with a lower dose of sweetness in the nose than say, choklat or creme brulee. Flavor is of oats and molasses and dark malts with some nice soily character. The beer is chewy and resonant in finish with a moderate carb and has the potential to fill a belly. The 10.8% ABV doesn’t even shine whatsoever.

The aroma combines hints of raisins, chocolate, booze, and caramel malts, and the appearance is an opaque black color with a small tan ring on top of the liquid. The taste fuses a mild sweetness, slight bitterness, and quite a bit of umami; however, the palate is very indulgent as it combines a medium body, oily texture, soft carbonation, and a long malty finish

Good stout. Not great. A little on the sweet side. I have found that all of the southern tier stouts I've hade are that way. I liked it better than jahva.

4.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
22 oz bottle for 10 bucks. Pours black with a brown head. Aroma is a little fruity, mostly oats and chocolate. Taste is oats up front with a lasting chocolate flavor on the end. Reminds me of taking a bite out of a chocolate bar. Really nice. Body is medium, lighter than I was expecting. Texture is creamy. This one is a knock out of the park. There is no alcohol in the taste to speak, and it is very smooth and easy to drink. DOB says 8/16/12 so the flavor might be a little different due to age.

Definitely has a strong aroma and taste of oats. There is a mild alcohol taste but it’s not overwhelming.
