Poured into a Darkness tulip on 7/1/12
I can't remember was with me when I opened it. Seth had to be there because I was using his glass. Chris might have been there, too.
Brewed on 11 January 2009. Bottled on 16 February 2009. Bottle number 134.
A) On the pour this is surprisingly light brown in color. That said, it does end up rather dark in the glass. The head rises to close to three fingers; this is all rocky, porous foam. However, almost all of it dissipates leaving a soapy layer of retention and some sporadic trails of lace.
S) The aroma is disarmingly thin and timid. Oxidation permeates the entire aroma. Lots of dark fruits, too. Raisins and prunes. Sweet, but not overly sugary.
T) The flavor is even more fruity and heavy on raisins (twangy raisins no less). Too much on the side of tangy, sugary fruits. Roast and burnt notes are basically nonexistent.
M) Medium body. The feel is very smooth and moderately slick. Carbonation is tilted toward the lower side. Some sugary residuals.
D) Though this is not entirely bad or unenjoyable, it is simply not impressive. I wouldn't be inclined to get it again.

Pitch black with a big, fluffy tan head. Great head retention.
Sweet and almost citrussy. Touches of chocolate and alcohol. Plenty of hop character.
Sharply hoppy stout. There is a rich alcohol character sitting under the malt with chocolate and light roast following. Citrussy hops back it up. The fruitiness really works well.
Medium-full body with moderate carbonation. Really good.
A solid beer. Great flavour and all round performer.
