Good stout! It could use more depth of flavor(it would probably barrel-age great like the porter). Very drinkable; and yet another solid beer from my favorite brewer in Indianapolis.

On tap, black with thin tan head. Smoke to the nose which continues to the pallet along with some chocolate and coffee. Good beer worth having again.

Bottle. Near black with a very thin tan head. Light aroma of coffee and sour berry. Bitter roasted flavor with an earthy and slightly sour finish. I suspect the beginning stages of infection. Below average carbonation with creamy texture. Dull and underwhelming. Not a beer I would choose again.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Aroma: Light coffee, waffle cone, Merlot. Appearance: Inky black pour with a bubbly tan head that settles into a patchy ring. Flavor: Coffee up front, but lots of fruity esters- blackberry, for instance. Chocolate is more subtle but ever present. Palate: Medium body, sticky texture, flat carbonation, long finish. Overall: Interesting stout, but not something I’d continually seek out.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Rated on 5-18-2012 at 800 Degrees Pizza (Fort Wayne, IN) This draft beer has an opaque dark brown body and spotty amounts of lacing. The aroma is roasted malt, coffee and chocolate. The flavor is coffee bitter, roasted malt and chocolate. The mouthfeel is tingly and this beer is medium bodied. This beer is very quaffable and roasted but not overly so. It is worth trying.

From bottle, pours opaque black with a big tan head. Aroma is full of roasted malts and coffee. Taste is roasted malts, but with a sweet tangy quality. Medium mouthfeel.

Pours a black color with a tan head. Aroma is of chocolate, molasses, coffee, and roasted malts. Flavor is pretty strong with the molasses, coffee, and roasted malts. A hint of sweetness as well. Much better than I expected.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 ounce bottle bought in Indianapolis. An almost black pour that has a tan head. An aroma that is full of roasted notes and espresso. The flavor brings coffee and sourness. Citrus hops, black licorice, and oats. Bitterness comes late. This is below average because of the sourness.

Bottle. Nose has some nice smoking to it, and almost reminds you of a good steak. There is a bit of roasting in there, in both nose and taste. This is very drinkable, though not in the expected way.
