Big thanks to SFLpunk for throwing this one in as an extra in a recent trade. You’re the man!! 12oz bottle shared with Mikelovesbeer. Pitch black pour with no foam. A healthy amount of coffee bean in the aroma with dark chocolate. The flavor had an almost milky/lactose vibe to it. Smooth like a chocolate milk. Super tasty and would recommend to anyone.

Knight Slayer is a opaque stout with a very dismal head. I found the taste of the alcohol was too present for my liking with an 9.5% alcohol content. With very minimal carbonation it reviles the sweetness and allows a warm finish.

On tap at Farmhouse in Burlington. Black pour, smallish beige head. Aroma is full of roasted malt, lactic sugar, cream, dark chocolate, and coffee. Flavor is comparable, with increased chocolate and espresso notes. The mouthfeel is somewhat thin for an imperial stout, but glides down smoothly. I like a more robust and dense beer in this style, but the flavors are still quite good. Clearly Trout River’s best beer.

Bottle. Black bruin body with an off white head. Roast y bitter chocolate malt tones. Hints of vanilla and wood, roasted coffee bitterness. Light licorice and chocolate malt tones. A decent warming with a nice bitterness to balance. Nice.

Un-Muzzling Olde Muzzlehatch Ratings, #12. Vermont Brewer’s Fest, July 2008, sample 4 (draught). Jet black with just a touch of head...nose is initially very sweet, chocolaty, hints of vanilla, eventually a bit of oily leather...very sweet, thick and decadent body, chocolate milk or nougat, with more than a touch of booziness to finish. Those who need their Imperials to be hoppy and finish dry need not apply here; I liked it.

Pours a solid dark brown with faint garnet highlights when held to light. Smallish tan head shows decent retention with minimal lace. Smells of coffee and roast with a hint of caramel. Smells nice, but has a dry Irish kind of feel to it. Taste is roasty and coffee with a bit of butterscotch and some mild dark fruits and licorice in the finish. Creamy smooth mouthfeel, moderate level of carbonation with a medium body. This is a fairly tasty beer, but its a stretch to call this an Imperial Stout. Foreign Extra or American stout would have scored much higher.

From a growler obtained at the brewery. The pour is deep black with little to no head. But the server told me it would be low in carbonation. The aroma is of dark malts, some dark fruits, yeast, and sweetness. No chocolate or coffee that I picked up. The body is a little less than medium but it is very smooth. Sweet taste with low bitterness. Alcohol very-well integrated. It would be easy to over indulge.

Thanks Tucker for sending this one out . Brownish black in color with a small tan head. Not a ton of aromas off the top. Medium bodied beer. Understated stout flavors of chocolate, coffee, and toasty malt. Almost a blend of an IRS and sweet stout. Not too bad of a beer.

Bottle thanks to Toby, these labels are cool at least. Pours a brown color with a tiny white head. The aroma is sweet cocoa, light chocolates. The flavor is thin, some chocolate, reminiscent of a 4% porter, light fruit. Decent.
