750mL bottle pours black with huge tan head. Aroma has roasted characters, vanilla, oak, licorice, chocolate and earthy. Taste is very sweet with bittersweet chocolate, roasted flavors, and molasses. Alcohol very present lots going on here maybe too much.

jrallen34 (3487) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 29, 2011
Bottle - huge thanks to Alex for helping with a rate Utah tick...A dark brown pour, only the slightest hint away from being black with a nice tan head. Ok retention and lacing...Aroma of dark sugars (molasses), a little roast, vanilla, and spices....Taste is really nice and so drinkable at 13.2%. Vanilla, dark fruits and spice come through. The beer is way to watery for a stout but Im going to drink it anyway. A beer that’s easy to drink and can you get going quick, worth trying for the state tick and to get your drunk quick.

JoeMcPhee (8788) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 26, 2011
Black pour with a tight, dark brown head. Pours like motor oil. The nose is incredibly intense. Loads of heavy tarry roast, salty/savoury licorice along with some bittersweet chocolate. Heavy oaky character on the back (although it’s not particularly bourbony). Rich and thick with a lot of complexity. As it warms up there is a lot of vanilla that pops up. Intense and a little bit ashy as well. There is a little bit of light smoke as well. Surprisingly nice.

750ml Bomber – Uinta Brewing
Dark brown in color, clear with a thin tan head. Big malt and chocolate aroma along with a light alcohol. Big malty brew this has great flavors strong chocolate and coffee. Big beer flavor this warms up well and more aroma and flavor. Big strong beer also so watch yourself.

madvike (3033) - Middleton, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 21, 2011
Bottle shared by levifunk - Pours black as hell, with a very small tan head. Roasty on the nose, with nutty toffee. Taste is burnt roast, with maltiness that lasts all the way through the finish, along with the light toffee sweetness. Smooth and pretty rich.

Arayaga2 (1859) - portland, Oregon, USA - MAR 16, 2011
Dark brown black with a half cm of cocoa colored head. Aroma is rich chocolate and figs. Taste is the same, but much richer, with slightly acidic, with alcohol warming into the finish. Alcohol is not otherwise overbearing in any way. $10/750

hellbilly (3249) - scottsdale über alles, Arizona, USA - MAR 16, 2011
multiple bottles since this was first released in az. pours on the black side of brown. thick and oily with a minimal light brown head. delicious malty aroma... along with chocolate, wood, vinous qualities/fruit, coffee, vanilla and some ash. tastes like... a lager stout?... grassy and herbaceous, roast, chocolate, charcoal, bourbon-like spices, salt and oak. it has an ashy-charcoal-burnt thing on the finish which really helps thin the full body out. incredibly drinkable for the alcohol and outright richness. 8/5/8/5/17++
