look: 4 | smell: 2 | taste: 3 | feel: 4 | overall: 2.5

22oz bottled February 2012. Served at cellar temperature.

Pours black with a three finger brown head that leaves some sheets of lacing and holds a nice thick cap.

Aroma is musty cardboard, hints of cocoa, dark fruit, and roasted malt. Moderate strength.

Flavor is roasted malts, some chocolate, a bit of coffee and dark fruit, cardboard, mineral notes, minimal alcohol.

Mouthfeel is medium bodied, creamy, soft carbonation.

This beer wants to be good, but is falling short with some apparent oxidation issues. Flavor is OK...aroma is not...

Handsome dark beige foam on the black brew. Plenty of lacing in the Affligem chalice. Pleasantly spritzy on the tongue. Light and tingly mouthfeel.

There is just a touch of malty sweetness before the burnt flavors take over. Quite a bitter aftertaste. I tastes like the hops are well supplied, but there is so much charred grains there may be bitterness from that as well. Brewery says it's made with Magnum and Willamette hops.

This is a serious stuff. Bold and impressive flavors but I have to say that the drinkability is less than I would like. The toasted flavors are nice but the darkness obliterates every flavor before it. From the 22 oz bottle purchased at Central Market - Shoreline in north Seattle.

22-oz bomber to tulip. Traded for at Bottleworks in Seattle, May 2013. Unsure of the bottling date. Consumed 3-15-2014. Yeah, it old.

Very dark chestnut brown, hews closely to black. Minimal head. Appearance anticipates the smell and taste. Smoked malts, reminiscent of dark brown bread soaked in coffee, dark chocolate too.

Harsh roast - though, luckily, this doesn't get acrid. Thinner, but very drinkable, true to style.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

Honey-combed rose-tinged sandstone head over black body.
Sweet, smoke, meat and red cherry nose.
Big sweet licorice and dark chocolate, a warm roasty hit, and branch + blackberry hops with some real IBUs.
Black rye bread bite to end and creamy anise linger.
Medium to full, well chewy, round.

A big stout with contribution from PNW hops. Not all the usual RIS notes: creamy, some red berry, but no coffee. The definition of American Stout.
