deadCATAtlanta brought back a 2012 vintage from Charleston, Sout Carolina and shared with me and jrob21. Something apropos about rating this beer while listening to a vinyl copy of Al Green Explores Your Mind I picked up at the flea market. Pours nearly black with big tan head. Scent is coffee, chocolate, and roasted grains. Body is beautiful blend of sweet and roast. Thick with light carbonation. Growler - Shared by deadCATAtlanta

22-oz. bottle split with jpdurden24 (among others). Very chocolate nose with with a bitter licorice component and some coffee. Dark, clear brown in appearance. Slight bittersweet chocolate taste with a lot of ash and tar. Bitter, sticky palate. Nothing remarkable at all; Id say this one is overrated.

Thank you MrBunn...you win. Smells of cherry pipe tobacco.....light chocolate and some pine. Pours black with a rich tan head. Incredibly smooth, with notes of resin, some chocolate, a bit of spice, and some tobacco. This is good stuff. finish has a lingering sweet/bitter chocolate to it that makes my mouth fall in love with it. Sexual Chocolate, indeed.

Thanks to savvy1982 for the share! bottle # 697. Tasted back to back to back with Zukov and Hunahpu. Pours black with a small off white head. The aroma is quite yeasty, and hoppy with hints of chocolate. The flavor is rich and chocolaty. Molasses, licorice, chocolate, vanilla and a funky hop finish. Fluffy mouth feel. Great stout.

Poured from tap as part of a flight at Foothills Brewpub. Decent lacing and head, black but not thick in appearance. Milk chocolate aroma, vanilla, like hot cocoa. Delicious.

Draft. Pours dark brown thin tan lacing. Aroma of chocolate and roastiness. Taste is sweet. Creamy smooth texture, mild bitterness and warming sensation.

Pours black with thick tan head. Aroma of roasted malt. Taste is again roasted malts and dark fruits. Good but not worth the hype.

Ya, this stuff is wicked good. Oh, Ive made better IRS myself, but it was 3 YO before it reached the heights. This pours inky black, dark brown head, the aroma is sweet wickedness. I dont get the coffee in the aroma as much as I expected, but the bottle was a few months old. Bravo.

Bottle, # 264/500: Courtesy of TheBeerCellar, thanks Matt. Opaque black pour with some ruby notes on the halo and a wispy tan head. Big dark malt, bakers chocolate, tobacco and dark fruit notes found in the nose...medium-full bodied mouth feel. Flavor has notes of mild dark chocolates and a big espresso kick to help smooth things out a bit and round this brew out. A solid brew but not outstanding.
