A raspberry like aroma. Maybe its a wine barrel. I get maybe a wiff of wood. Body is dark and tan. Body is thick. Flavor is very sweet and alcohol flavored. Too strong, not roasty enough. Not good.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours thick and black with a fine but lingering mocha head. Nose is complex and blends coffee, plum, oak, chocolate and vanilla into a nice boozy mix. Flavor leans to the sweeter side but has enormous complexity and plenty of warmth. Almost like drinking a brandy. Great stuff.

Smells of French toast and coffee chocolate and other baked goods. Silky midnight black in color with small cream color head light lacing. Taste is amazing sweet smooth roasted malts followed by huge hints of vanilla and a touch of milk chocolate to finish the flavor profile. Booze is hidden very well for the ABV. Full creamy body with nice carbonation for this phenomenal brew. Love this stout my favorite ever need more stout like this out there instead of one noted stouts. Badass brew west cost owns the stout game.

Pours black with thin, quickly dissipating head; non-existent within five minutes of pour. Aromas of bourbon, molasses, vanilla, rye, pecan, faint tart Door Count cherry; trace alcohol notes. Taste is whiskey, smooth oak vanilla, treacle, but fainter than aroma. The cherry is still present as well and plays nicely. Hint of alcohol, but not overly boozy. Smooth, oily mouthfeel, nice and chewy. Very nice.

From 22oz bomber to pint glass. Pour is an oily black color with a nice cocoa head which dissipates rather quickly. Aroma is bourbon, coffee, molasses, roasted malt and chocolate, oak, faint vanilla, dark fruit notes, cherries, and spicy booze notes. Flavor is dry and roasty with rich dark chocolate, light espresso, licorice, and faint oak and booze. Really enjoyed this bottle.

Crowler from Growler Guys, Neridian. Deep dark brown/Black with a thin brief light brown head. Lots of oak cinnnimon and chocolate inthe aroma or dark sweet roasted malt. Similar flavors but also with a little cayenne peer maybe at the end. A Mexican Mayan mocha sort of. Very good.

Bottle courtesy of maniac. Pours thick dark, almost like a reduction. Bourbon, chocolate, with hints of vanilla and nuts. Heavy roasty stout. Not stone’s best. But still good. The geek in me was satiated
