Courtesy of Jon. Pours black with fizzy brown head. Carbony sweet chocolate aroma. Flavor is a dark burnt bitter and tobacco. Surprisingly light and refreshing body. Finishes dry. Very tasty.

Bottled. Mineraly, effervescent, a bit of roasted malt. More minerals on the palate, can't really taste the escargot shells. Reminds me of an oyster stout -- but better than all of those. Not a style I love, pretty decent though.

Black and inky with a thin, quickly dissipating head. Aromas I roasted malts and sour milk. Something about this beer is just a bit off. Iím guessing the snails.

On tap at Tired Hands. Earthy roasted aroma with light alcohol, beef bbq, and chocolate. Herbs. Dark brown opaque with thin head. Medium-heavy body light carbonation. Rich earthy, chocolatey, beefy. Roasted with Twizzlers and light bitter tangy finish. Neutral fruity character, rich and sublime with nice after.

On tap. Pours very dark brown with a lacy head. Aroma of roasted malts, some light chocolate, earthy tones, and some floral hops. Flavor about the same. Average texture. A decent stout.

Wow - super unique and interesting! Pours unclear dark coffee in color with a cinnamon beige head. The aroma is sweet and earthy, quite potent but enjoyed. The flavor brings the brine, more prevalent than any other brew with shells I have had. There are sweet malts as well on a decent body.

Dark brown / black with a medium sized tan head that left nice lacing on the glass. Aroma of roasted malts, come chocolate, coffee, some dark fruits and a bit of alcohol. Taste of roast, cocoa, coffee, minerals, light salt, and a dry finis.

Tap at Tired Hands. Amazing pour. Perfect deep black pour with reddish, thicker mocha near nitro foam with mega retention and complete sheety lace. Nose is sharper coffee porter. Opens up as it warms and gains beautiful savory complexities- woods, campfire, wildflowers, some black cherry chocolate souffle. Taste is very bitter, small alcohol sweetness, bitter tar and charcoal pencil, black crayon waxiness. Ends with sharper acid and massive tree bark, earthy, rindy bitterness. Interesting. Could pass for porter since itís not overly thick or dense. Very bitter thick dark chocolate is forefront. Agree with the style switch from Imperial Stout to normal Stout.

On tap at Tired Hands. Dark brown with a beige head. Nose is faint Bakerís chocolate, dark roast and minerals. Medium body with a tang. Taste is bittersweet chocolate, sea salt, coffee and hints of licorice. Interesting.

Pours black with a medium tan head. Aroma has lots of roastiness...some faint smoke and coffee...earthy almost like mushrooms...very faint tartness. Flavor follows suit...unique earthiness that is hard to describe and nice roastiness...some faint soury notes creeping in. Mouthfeel is medium/full with an earthy/burnt finish that has good bitterness.
