Poured a bottle into a glass on 12/15/13. Purchased bottle from Quench Beer in Silver Spring, MD (solid, small craft beer selection). Foam head was about 4 inches, piss poor pour, but 4 friggin inches...? Aroma starts with a bitter nose. Light chocolate, coffee tones. Incredible dark brown, almost black appearance. Consistency of the beer as its poured appears to be thin. Taste is dry, lightly tightens up your mouth like youre drinking a cheap wine. Palate confirms what the pour predicted, tastes thin and not what one would expect from a stout. Taste continues with light, bittersweet chocolate and weak coffee. Overall, jrodoo5 said it best, " Its just uninteresting to me. Its ok and drinkable but I want more than that in a stout!" Agreed.

Bottle. Black in colour. Malty; roasty malts, lots of coffee, chocolate, caramel. Fruity; some sweet fruit. Hoppy; good hop bitterness. Good malt/hop balance. Bittersweet roast malty with a nice balancing hoppiness. Dry roasty throughout. Decent. Very drinkable. (2011-11-11)

crossovert (12255) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - SEP 20, 2016
355ml twist off (Still?) bottle. It is overcarbed, but if it wasnt it would be a fine looking beer. Cola/bronw color and a large tan head. Aroma is typical dry stout, bit of coffee, bit of cocoa, bit of metal, grain, leafy hops, oxidized licorice. Surprisingly not heavily oxidized as this bottle is about a month past its BB, the havy carb might help. Flavor is predictably metallic, fruity though, some oxidation in a sherry form coming through, licorice and coffee, huge carb. It tastes like the stale English imports from years back, theyve done a good job imitating old english brews with this one, maybe i should try it fresh and properly carbed someday.. Its nothing to behold.

Bottle. It poured a black color with a tan head. The aroma was of coffee, roasted malts and some cocoa. The taste was similar to the aroma with more coffee, malts and chocolate. Not bad.
