cbfobes (2304) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - NOV 17, 2013
On tap at Dexters, pours a very dark brown nearly black with a light tan head, the aroma is pretty toasty with a little bit of chocolate, kind of toned down from the last ones I’ve tried, the flavor has a sweet front end with quite a bit of the chocolate coming through in the finish, good, just not mind blowing like the past few I’ve tried.

Growler from Nova, pours a dark brown/black with a thin tan head. Aroma of chocolate malt and roasted malts. Taste of slick chocolate with slight licorice, oats, sweet, finishing with bitter coffee and slight hop bitterness. A nice well balanced drinkable stout.

HonkeyBra (3420) - Lemont, Illinois, USA - OCT 24, 2013
On draft at GTMW2013 preparty. Pours a rich black with a creamy looking tan head. Aroma of roast, Oreo cookie, chocolate cake and cocoa. Maybe some coffee. Flavor is bitter roasted and coffee notes parsed by sweetness from the chocolate malt. Touches of dry bakers chocolate as well. Body is indeed, as advertised, chewy, with a somewhat chalky texture, medium carbonation. Finishes dry and roasty. Overall, nice stout.
