bhensonb (14897) - Woodland, California, USA - MAR 17, 2012
Capped 750 from Wine & Cheese in Clayton, MO. Pours black with a 4 finger creamy/foamy tan head. Through the head I can only get chcolate and some dark malt. Med minus body. Flavor is dark chocolate and a burnt malt that reminds of the old style Guinness. Theres coffee in it, and something like citrus hop? Basically its pretty dry, and bitter. The dominant flavor seems to be the malt. I was hoping Cat Spit related to Cat Piss, but its pretty good stuff thanks to the malt bitter.

Bottle @ B.R.A.D. Fest, courtesy of jcnielsen. Possibly infected, super bubbly head. Pours a brown appearance with a huge brown head. Spicy, toasted coffee, light chocolate, a touch fruity aroma. Slightly burnt, light chocolate, lightly roasted coffee, a bit friuty flavor. Way overcarbonated but I dont think its infected.

phaleslu (9925) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - SEP 4, 2011
Tap at the brewerys tasting room. Pours a mostly opaque dark brown with a little tan head that leaves a lasting ring the entire time. Aroma of rich, roasted malts, coffee, dark chocolate, toast, molasses, and a little earth. The flavor almost exactly follows suit, with a lot of coffee and chocolate, roasted malts, earth, and caramel and molasses sweetness. The body is just a little thin and under-carbonated, but barely; Id call it light-medium bodied. Roasty, smooth mouthfeel. Still, this is an awesome stout and I actually liked it just a touch better than the LSD imperial stout upon my first try of both.

TheAlum (7137) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - JUN 23, 2014
Draft on tap at The Bridge (St Louis, MO). Pours a deep blackish roasty pour, a gentle brownish ruby glow on the bottom and edges. Frothy tannish head atop stays as a decent frothy layer, sticks around as a mellow ring, laces well enough. Aromas are a bit of cocoa, darker sweetness with some toast, toffee and a faint waft of vanilla. Initial is lighter end of the fold, some toffee and toast. Gentle touches of coffee and biscuit, and mellow coffee. Backend is a bit toasty, more roast elements with just a bit of body. Small, approachable with decent roast and dryness on the backend. Not bad. Perhaps a touch underbodied but that works in this heat.

CaptainCougar (7133) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - MAR 5, 2012
750ml bottle courtesy of jdskinns: Pours a mostly opaque with dark brown edges and a spotty-lacing off-white head. Has a lightly sweet, toasted dark caramel and chocolate malty nose. Starts with average fullness and plenty of carbonation with some mild sweetness and faint metallic notes before a drier, roasted dark chocolate and coffee finish. Could use a little refinement, but still a fairly drinkable stout.
