Outstanding. Apple and fruit initially, coffee, leather, smoke, and lots of it later. Laces the glass, thick enough for a normal "stout" designation (versus imperial, etc) but missing a little bit of the silkiness that would make this in my top 10 (possibly blame the bottle). Wax on the bottle was a pain in the ass, but it’s forgiven because of the beer. Flavors linger for minutes and the alcohol wasn’t present. Glad I found this.

12oz bottle in a teku. Pours black with a beige head. Aroma of roasted and chocolate malts, floral hops, and light dough. Flavor the same. Average texture. A pretty good beer but not the best of the style.

An interesting stout that grows on you sip by sip. A lot going on here rolled into one very good package. Hides the ABV well. Enjoy!

5 apr 2014, bottle. Black with thick frothy head. Surprisingly, nose is big grapefruit hops. Thin/med body and moderately fizzy. Some mild hops at the front but more chocolate and burnt toast crust in the middle. This is overshadowed by a big grapefruit citrus finish. Really good!

Like this one, a roasted chocolate and coffee nose, pour is black with brown head. Hints of bitterness on sip, with a nutty, roasted shot. Coffee aftertaste lingers nicely. 9% helps out. Goodnight!

Thanks, Kyle, for giving me a bottle - @ Party Town / Florence KY --- Good malt aromas. Opaque very dark brown color, brown head that takes 5 minutes to drop to a head cover, heavy streaks of lace. This is a big brew - taste is bitter roasted malt that has sweet overtones, moving without incident through the palate to a lingering bittersweet finish. A solid brew.

Sweetwater Happy Ending is a fantastic stout and Imperial, too. Caramel aroma (like a Coke) of a dark pour and nice tan head. Taste has notes of caramel (again like Coke) with more moderate chocolate and coffee. Finish has a bit of sweetness. Happy Ending is just that.

Great imperial stout with lots of roast, chocolate malt and what even tastes lightly of marshmallow. Pours thick black with mocha head and lacing. Thick and creamy texture. Finishes medium bitter. Very good stuff with great balance. All of this and cheap. Tap at Churchkey.

Draft - Roast malts and liquorice. Jet black with a nice rich brown head. Chiciloate and liquorice, with a balanced sweetness and a slight hop taste, which I think is what is giving it the liquorice taste. Very interesting and great if you are a liquorice fan.

Appropriately the last beer I had at the Distillery in Savannah. As you would expect pours a dark opaque brown with a dense tan head that persists. Smells of toasty malts, mild grass, and hoppy. Tasted a little acidic on the tongue, more hops than I would have expected, and a general grassiness to the malts. Medium-low carbonation. An alright imperial stout.
