Thanks to TATURBO for this sample!

bottled 10/26/2009.

reviewed from notes taken on 4/25/12.

6oz sample into snifter glass.

Appearance: oily black boided beer with a small brown ring on the beer.

Smell: coffee grounds, peanut shell and a saltiness. Odd combonation, but it smells decent.

Taste: surprisingly roasty with a mild sweetness from the malt profile. Just a hint of oat. Little bit of oxidation too.

Mouthfeel: thin body with low carbonation. Nice clean mouthfeel on this older stout.

Overall: To my surprise this beer was enjoyable with a little age on it. Its more roasty and i get no olive note as compared to when i have tried this beer fresh a long time ago.

M: Not much tingle to the tongue, but not totally flat either. 3.5
