savnac (2391) - Anchorage, Alaska, USA - DEC 31, 2013
22oz bottle. Almost black with a thick tan head. Aroma of chocolate, rye, alcohol. caramel and vanilla. Flavor is sweet chocolate and caramel, sugary malt, rye spice and alcohol/vanilla. Full body with a thick mouth feel. Ok beer but pretty sweet and not very drinkable.

AirForceHops (6954) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - DEC 30, 2013
Draft @ Sunset Grill and Tap, Alston, MA. 10 oz. snifter shows thick tan head with great retention. Aroma of Light oak barrel, praline and rich chocolate. Flavor is sweet chocolate up front with barrel notes and bitter chocolate through the middle. Hints of vanilla and char in the finish. ABV can still be detected in the finish with a nice warming feel as you swallow. The body is heavy/ full with a dry roasted texture. I was missing the pecan in the flavor yet, for a 13 % stout it still was real easy to sip.

From a growler, flat carbonation, slick oily mouthfeel. I dont get much of the bourbon (blended so I guess that makes sense), also dont pick up on the pecans. Overall impression is this is pretty good stout, but nothing mindblowing or life changing. Glad I got to drink it, there is a nice smoothness to it, it comes together really well.

CamdenD (1197) - Madrid, SPAIN - DEC 24, 2013
At 13% one might expect a bit more bang to this beer. It is instead quite mellow and while that is certainly not a bad thing, the taste is a bit muddled. A long-lasting aftertaste warms. Good stuff.

JStax (6009) - Devola/Marietta, Ohio, USA - DEC 21, 2013
22 ounce bottle shared and poured into a brandy snifter. Lours a thick, viscous black with a khaki colored head of foam. Aroma is big roasty, ashy, nutty, and caramelly. Tastes pretty sweet and roasty.thick mouthfeel. Kinda like motor oil thick. Lower carbonation. Really nice overall.

Strykzone (7182) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - DEC 18, 2013
Sampled at esbls. A rich and black pour. No foam. This is really sweet. All kinds of grains. Only a littlevroasted notes. Soft hops might be noble with citrus. No carbonation.

neuromatt (1225) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 18, 2013
22 oz bottle courtesy of Dan, served in a stem glass. Pours deep chestnut with a moderate tan head that fades slowly to a thin cover and leaves a small amount of fine lace. On the nose, there are big notes of roasted malts, dry malts and charcoal, along with peppery, piney hops. The flavour is balanced between chocolatey, toasty malts on the one hand and spicy, peppery, hoppy notes on the other. Hoppy notes pick up towards the end, with roasty malt notes and a slight pepperiness. On the palate, it is medium-full in body with a milky-creamy texture and soft carbonation. Overall this is a nice stout, but somehow disappointing. It could have been a bit more complex. 2013-11-07

5000 (6862) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - DEC 17, 2013
Bottle: Black, small foamy beige head, little lacing. Roasted malt nose, hazelnuts, soft dark pitted fruit. Smooth on the tongue, roasty, soft nuttiness, some dark chocolate, touch of apple skin and dark pitted fruit. Solid, but nothing extraordinary. Feels very warming too @ 13%. Smooth, but body and mouthfeel are somewhat moderate. Clean, solid stout, nothing to write home about, but one that would work in a pinch if you wanted a softly hopped Imperial Stout.

VastActiv (6475) - Oulu/Helsinki, FINLAND - DEC 12, 2013
Tap at Baileys Taproom, Portland. Colour is almost black with slightly brownish white head. Aromas and flavours: Some sweetness, hints of vanilla, chocolate, hints of bourbon and roasted malts. Alcohol is well hidden. Sorry but getting little bit of bored on these bourbon imps. Maybe better points after couple of months.

maneliquor (3514) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - DEC 11, 2013
UPDATED: DEC 12, 2013 Tap at BD Shepherds Bush. Pours black with a medium khaki head leaving very sticky lacing. Nose is loaded with vanilla and nutty undertones, very balanced milk chocolate with piney hops. Taste is heavy on vanilla and milk chocolate, mildy bitter cocoa focus, grass, wood and honey. Nuttiness all the way through the palate which works. Sweet but balanced nicely. Hidden ABV is superb. Very nice stuff
