Black pour whispy tan head limited lacing. A mild slightly sweet stout aroma toasty a touch of lactose a subtly sweet finish. Full body like the oatmeal stout character. One of the better stouts Ive had much bigger in flavor than its gravity and delicious.

Grabbed a sixer from ralphs for ten bucks. Really impressed overall with the brew. Starts with a light sweetness characteristically maple and dark chocolate with cinnamon. Mid swill you taste the stoutness of this fine concoction, maple continues into a slightly bitter coffe-esque flavor. Your left with a bitterness shortly but this beer actually finished the tiniest bit sweet to me. Color is beautiful and full of depth, if not slightly muddy. Dark amber fer sure. Carbonation was even and lasting, the head was minimal throughout, but did last. Overall a great beer overall. Highly recommended.

Thick, rich, creamy, nice flavor. Chocolate, with some mild coffee but without the bitterness; oatmeal. Nice.

This ones good. Aroma is smooth, little coffee with roasty chocolate notes. Pours a dark black with tan head that thins relatively quickly. Coffee, toasty malt notes, and lightly sweet define the taste; however, a slight bitterness adds the to complexity and overall awesomeness. It also finishes smooth but surprisingly dry! Yeah.

Serving: from tap at Brouwers Cafe. Aroma: light wood and chocolate aroma. Appearance: small, creamy, light-brown, initial head with fair lacing and fully diminishing longevity. Dark-brown/black body. Taste: heavy, bourbon-like, lightly roasted initial flavor with hints of wood. Lightly acidic and bitter finish with average duration. Palate: medium-to-full body with oily texture and soft carbonation. Overall: didnt really like it much.

eaglefan538 (3034) - Wilmington, Delaware, USA - MAR 8, 2013
Pour was deep dark brown, tan colored head. Aroma of coffee, chocolate, dark fruits, some vanilla. Flavor followed with slight bourbon and toffee mixed in there. Mouthfeel was oily medium to full bodied for the style. Slight acidity in the finish for a stout. Decent brew, definitely not overdone on the bourbon, but the base beer didnt wow me.

Draft at Capones. Pours a deep brown with think tan head and lacing. Aroma dominated by roasted malts, some coffee, dark chocolate. Very creamy mouthfeel. A lot of roasted, almost smokey, malts, with mild coffee and chocolate notes. Pretty sweet and creamy finish.
