UPDATED: JAN 12, 2015 Jet black pour with a tan head. Malty, roasted notes, dark chocolate, coffee, burnt sugar. Good on nitro. Update from can: mouthfeel is really creamy, head is white (I prefer dark tan with stouts) but the aroma and taste is amazing. TxStoutLovers (2) - - NOV 8, 2014 does not count
We’ve been buying half barrels of this fabulous stout (at the same price I might add) every 3 months for 4 years now! No ... we’re not a commercial enterprise, it’s just us 2, at home with our friends, loving the smooth bready satisfying completeness of this outstanding stout. It’s a terrific end of the workday treat and a weekend "get relaxed" brew! We’ve tried so many stouts over the years I can’t count them and BH outshines them all!! Our opinion of course. If you like stouts, give this a try, you’ll undoubtedly fall in love like we did! Thank you SS!!!! AdamChandler (5276) - Enfield, New Hampshire, USA - NOV 3, 2014
Can from a trade split 2 ways. Fridge is 44F in stemware. here. dark chocolate, 2 finger head, light and easy to see through in the light. Nose is bursting with chocolate and some cedar chips / mulch. Taste is roasty, creamy mouthfeel, some pistachio and walnuts and wood with a chocolatey finish. not terrible.

Appearance: medium dark brown, with clear caramel colored edges and a nitro head and lacing that was thick and off-white. Aroma: nitro-suppressed nose was on the light side, with some chocolate, chicory coffee, slightly singed caramel. Taste: dark chocolate, vanilla, hint of charred wood, caramel, toffee, hint of pine and coffee. Finish: typically abrupt nitro finish, with just a bit of lingering general roast. Notes: Nitro draught at the Hoppy Monk in El Paso, Texas. Pretty enjoyable stout--decent enough. Palate was surprisingly light for an 8.25% abv beer, and the abv was well-hidden. Wondering if this may be one of those beers that’s better not on nitro. Seemed...toned down. Paired well with the sliders.

Poured at 60 degrees. Smells malty with very light smoke. Tastes of light hints of coffee, smoke and finishes with bitter chocolate.

Very very thin watery bodied stout, nose & palate initial coffee leading to chestnut, reminiscent of a nuttier and thinner ugly pug. Not especially enjoyable. stxoil (33) - Texas, USA - SEP 28, 2014
Not a lot of aroma, but faint coffee smell. Pours a very dark brown with small tan head. Medium bodied with slick mouthfeel. Taste is roasted malts and caramel with coffee overtones and chocolate undertones. Low carbonation.
This is a very delicious stout.

Roasted malts... caramels... chocolates... coffee... Awesome brew! : ) DrunkSanta410 (993) - Tulsa, Oklahoma, USA - SEP 4, 2014
Can to glass. Pours a dark, coffee like color with nice khaki head. Aroma is coffee and toffee malts, hints of chocolate. Taste is smooth, nice mix of milk chocolate and dark roasted coffee. Hints of toffee sweetness and faint smoke. Palate is smooth, a bit of alcohol warmth. Good stout! sturmthis (1195) - Bavaria, GERMANY - SEP 1, 2014
12oz bottle. Dark brown color with fluffy head. Nutty aroma. Taste is similar with a little coffee. Very enjoyable stout.
