Do not see any dates on North Coast beers. I have however aged this one particular bottle for a year in my cellar.
A - Poured out of the bottle a dark brown but once in the glass its definitely opaque and completely black with a two finger frothy brownish mocha head that left beautiful lacing on the glass.
S - Soft on the nose with a dark malt bill of coffee followed by dark chocolate and a deep roast quality. Under that there is some anise and raisin notes and a sweetness that makes itself known.
T - Right away is a rich coffee bitterness, dark chocolate and the strong roastiness comes through, followed by the residual sweetness that cleanses the bitterness and holds on to the palate. A definite sipper.
M - Nice soft pillowy feel with a medium full body and a bitterness that lingers on the tongue.
O - This is a classic Stout that is a definite big beer sipper. An intense flavor explosion that last in your mouth. I recommend this one for all stout lovers and is must try fro any beer connoisseur. I think I liked this more when it was fresh but definitely nice to age. Try this one Cheers!
