Wow... in one word. This one surprised me. Pours a gorgeous deep brown with a quickly dissipating head. The aroma is rich caramel with a toasted nutty smell. This is what I would expect from an oaked stout. The taste is complex with a nice bitter with a good hint of alcohol warmth. The body is much thicker than I expected. Chewy. There is some carbonation but not much. The finish is a pleasant bitter followed up by a nice reminder of the ABV. Let me repeat my opening ... wow. I bought this as an "extra" in a craft pack. I think that I will be finding a 6 of this shortly.

Keg at Beaverfest. Subtle is how I'd sum this beer up. Less sugar than I expected in aroma, perhaps some burnt sugar. Otherwise malt, coffee and nuts. Light bitter taste whicb grows in strength. Light-medium bodied. Slock with a sticky residue. Abrupt finish. Good but too subtle to have too much impact. MavDunk (108) - - SEP 6, 2017
Poured from a bottle. Dark brown in color but you can see through it a bit. Head is on the beige side. Nose is malt and coffee as well as caramel and a bit of booziness. Some lighter notes that are hard to place as well. Taste leans towards brown/scotch ale. Definite coffee and malts as well as brown sugar and raisin. Toward the end there is a crisper hoppiness. Interesting beer. More dominated by the darker notes than expected.

Bottle pours a dark brown with a one finger beige head and thick sticky lacing. Aroma is primarily malt. Taste is very rich, heavy malt with a bunch of underlying flavors. Finishes a touch sour with a delicious aftertaste. joebeerhead (1) - - AUG 23, 2017 does not count
Rich malty. Not as hoppy as IPA. Would definitely try to find this beer again.
