Had this bottle. Very nice with a heady roasted malt aroma. Dark with lots of malts and bitter coffee, almonds and chocolate flavors. Balance of hops as well.

TURDFERGUSON (4024) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - DEC 29, 2011
Bottle shared by JCB. Thanks J! Dark brown with a small tan head. Roast, lightly fruity, heavy bitterness. Pretty ho-hum stout with nothing that really stands out. I think I like all of those beers better individually.

(22oz bottle from Dak). Pours dark brown with espresso head. Aroma is coffee, dark chocolate. Taste is sweet with some fairly heavy roast. Full bodied with an oily texture. Earthy. Pretty good stuff.

Dark brown pour, cream colored head. Booze, roast, ash, prune aroma. Flavor is malty, molasses, raisins, cocoa. A lot going on here.

emacgee (4376) - Chapel Hill, North Carolina, USA - DEC 26, 2011
Thanks JCB. Pours dark black with one finger of tan had. Nose is very hoppy, light citrus zest. Some coffee and bitter chocolate. Flavor has too much hop bite. The hop character totally throws this off kilter. Some molasses. Full bodied with a warming finish and bitter palate.

Bottled shared with P (many thanks to Pawola22). The whole may not be better than any of its individual parts, but its is still very good. It’s almost nostalgic in a way. A very creamy pour, with a wispy, tan head, and deep deep brown-black body thats not oily as one would expect. The aroma is roasty, as the coffee from Beer Geek is quite prominent. Also, herbal hops, ester fruits, fruity hop, and some powdery cocoa. There’s subtle funky sour to one as well, which seems to be from Black Albert. I’m a big fan of that characteristic. Aside from the obvious strength of the beer, the body is fairly smooth, lighter feeling than expected, well bittered, roasted, and powdery but not heavily sweet. Also, some funky fruitiness in there as well. Specific notes of roasted coffee, ester fruits, bitter herbal hops, and milky cocoa. The finish is a great combo of hop and roast. There’s only a tad bit of muddling of flavors, as I kind of expected, but that doesn’t distract from the overall production. So again, this was a fun one to drink, but not as good as the individuals. Still a great stout.

MatSciGuy (907) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - DEC 23, 2011
[bottle] shared by dalzale, Armin, and Caleb. Thanks guys! Pours viscous deep brown with a diminishing tan head. Aroma is dark fruits, sweet milk chocolate, just a touch of soy, a little coffee, some booziness. Flavor is quite hot, chocolate, booooooozy, sweet front but very bittersweet on the finish, chocolate and coffee. This would be a lot better with a bit less booze.

LamarBurton (376) - California, USA - DEC 23, 2011
Bottle shared with the MN crew. Thanks guys! Pour is a slightly hazy dark brown, verging on black, with a spare mocha head and very little lacing. Aroma is wet coffee grounds, slightly herbal/vegetal hops, fair bit of sweet dark fruit, and a fair bit of chocolate syrup. Touch of smoke comes through as it warms. Taste is lots of sweet and chocolaty dark fruit, a bit of coffee grounds. Syrupy mouthfeel, and fairly hot. Trying a bit too hard.

DalzAle (2010) - Eden Prairie, Minnesota, USA - DEC 23, 2011
Bottle thanks to SnobbyBeer! Thin black pour, very little carbonation and a slightly boozy peat/chocolate aroma. Flavor is peppery coffee, more bitter chocolate, green pepper and finishes earthy and very hot. Good beer, but I think I’d rather have all these beers separately instead of blended.

arminjewell (8620) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - DEC 23, 2011
Pour is thick black out of bottle with thin tan head, aroma has notes of big citrusy hops, big coffee notes, caramel, chocolate, and toffee notes, booze comes through with a fairly significant retronasal burn, hints of dark fruit, plum and raisin notes in there. Taste is some nice coffee from the beer geek brunch, hints of dark fruit mixes with toffee, vanilla, and sweet burnt sugars, touch of chocolate and cocoa powder in there, touch of roast but goes back to the milky sweet coffee notes, finishing fairly sweet, warming but fairly drying as well. Tastes much better than the aroma lets on, mouthfeel is great. Worth trying for sure!
