On tap at Cap Tap. Pours dark brown with a thick tan head and a treacle aroma. There is a hearty dark molasses flavor with a more bitter finish.

bhensonb (14325) - Woodland, California, USA - OCT 8, 2016
Tap at Capitol Beer in Sacramento, CA. Pours dark brn/blk with a light tan head. Aroma is quite treacle. Full bodied. Flavor is very dark treacle, some chocolate, maybe some coffee. Basically the flavor is all about the malty sweetness and the mixed flavors modifying that are hard for me to parse. Its certainly far from dry, and the bitter (burnt malt?) isnt strong. Gets a little earthy. Dang tasty stuff. I see the other ratings. Not really agreeing with them. Maybe this batch is greatly improved. I enjoyed it a lot.

Ernest (7438) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JAN 22, 2016
Draft at Maui Brewing in Kahana. Head is initially average sized, frothy, light brown, mostly diminishing. Body is dark brown to black. Aroma is moderately malty (chocolate liqueur, roasted grain), with notes of vanilla, green banana, alcohol. Flavor is heavily sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, moderately bitter. Medium to full body, watery/syrupy texture, soft carbonation, heavily alcoholic. Nice aroma reminiscent of Expedition, albeit not terribly enjoyable to drink due to hot alcohol, flabby texture, and too much sugar.

willisread (2807) - Owensboro, Kentucky, USA - DEC 12, 2015
Tap at Craft Hands. Thanks for sharing Jon. Deep brown to black with one finger of beige foam. Vanilla notes with dark overripe fruit, coffee, and burned molasses on the nose. Full-body with a well-rounded mouthfeel but sticky with burned sweetness on the palate. Booze starts to come out as it warms. Lots of bold, burned and fruit flavors meshing together, but a little harsh. Finish is burned molasses.

I really hope this is what Im drinking. Poured into a tulip glass showing pitch black with a finger of latte colored foam. The nose shows lightly roasted coffee. The palate shows light carbonation and a medium body. Light coffee on the attack then big vanilla notes on the mid palate and a bitter finish of roasted coffee and a hoppy bitterness.

Oakquinox. Dark brown, tan head. Nose is light fruits, vanilla, oak. Flavor is light toasty malts, oaky wood, vanilla, light fruits, alcohol. Medium body and carbonation. A big oaky stout, light fruits accent and calm the overall heft, easy drinking and palatable.

On draft at San Diego Strong Ale Fest 2010

Ap. Pours a viscous dark brown. Aroma: Sweet roasty goodness and oak. Taste: Slight burnt roast, barrel, booze, vinous twang. The burnt roast bitterness lingers. Mouthfeel: Sticky, low to medium carb. Overall: Solid.

JohnnyJ (5449) - San Diego, California, USA - NOV 27, 2010
Draft at Stone Bistro. Dark brown, with small tan head. Dark fruit, molasses, chocolate, roasted malt, and caramel sweetness. Pretty sweet for an imp stout, but I still enjoyed it.

brokensail (16111) - Dublin, California, USA - NOV 24, 2010
A: A deep dark brown color with reddish hints without much in terms of head. A bit of tan foam around the edge of the glass. S: Sickly sweet brown sugar, caramel, molasses, and licorice make up the bulk of the aroma. Some decent enough roast and coffee, but not much to counteract the sugar. T: Wow is this sweet. Sugary and sticky with some definite alcohol presence and maybe a bit of an overripe dark fruit flavor. It begins as cloying and as the beer warms up, theres a burnt sugar flavor that becomes very bitter. M: The body is medium, sticky, and syrupy, but not really in a good way. Carbonation is minimal. D: Blech, this was bad. Weird flavors and not much better in terms of the aroma.
