JaBier (7458) - Capital City, Ohio, USA - MAY 2, 2010
Growler sample shared by some of the other C-Bus bastardos at DLD 2010. Black pour with a thin tan head. Nose of chocolate and nuts with some dark fruit as well. Nutty and malty flavor with a big chocolate and roast finish. Wasnt sure about the walnuts, but the dimension they add to this beer really makes it stand out amongst others in the category.

CaptainCougar (7133) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - JAN 14, 2012
Bottle thanks to Puddintane: pours an oily opaque black with a small creamy beige head. Has a sweet dark caramel and chocolate nose with a touch of espresso and raisins. Starts with good fullness and chewy dark malty sweetness with some rum raisin and nutty complexity before a drier roasted and creamy finish that hides the alcohol well. Has a faint hint of vinous fruity tartness, but it is well-balanced with the other flavors.

Strykzone (7115) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - APR 25, 2014
Sampled at dld eve. Black. Fruoty aroma. Cherries? A thinner feel. Nuts are really ligjt. Nthis is so unlike a big stout. So much more fruit. Really good and so different.

TheAlum (7112) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - APR 26, 2010
Shared by sliffy. Thanks! Pours a very thick viscous black, clings heavily, like oil. Opaque, small dark brown head that sticks around. Aromas are cocoa and dark chocolate, roasted malts and a faint smokiness, a bit simple. Initial is roasty whole coffee beans, cocoa, a great coffee and roasted malt body, dark and ominous, cocoa and a faint smokiness, good floral hopping sticks beneath, really clings to the palate with a great roasted feel, but nothing acrid of fierce, just waves of roast and hop clinging on. Finish is roasty, coffee, bitter, a mellow sweetness underneath, faintly Belgian brown sugar-esque and a light nuttiness. A big beer.
