Poured from a 22 ounce bottle into a St. Bernardus goblet. Bottled 22 August 2012.

A: Finger of mocha head. Black, opaque body. Heavy lacing.

S: Smells like a porter. Roasted sweet malts, hint of vanilla.

T: It's pretty good, until the finish, which is phenomenal. The maintaste is sweet chocolate, lightly roasted malt, and only a hint of bitterness. The endtaste is rich and expressive, with dark cocoa powder and cappuccino. A touch of hops on the aftertaste. It only gets a 4.0 because the majority of the flavor is mediocre.

M: Rich, smooth, and sweet.

O: Great finish, short on delivery. Recommended, but not worth going out of your way. Would maybe have again.

Bottle. Pours black with a super pretty, thick dark brown head. Aroma of coffee and rich sweet roasted malt. Flavor of roasted malt, toffee, and caramel, with a bitter chocolate finish. A nice blend of rich flavors. A top-notch foreign stout.

Aroma is strong and oily with tones of coffee and unsweet chocolate and an overtone of molasses. It pours a deep, warm sable with a thick chocolaty brown head - would have gotten a perfect score in this department if the head had been a little more persistent. Flavor is smoky and sweet, tones of quality coffee, molasses and licorice with a touch of chocolate. Texture is smooth and fizzy, a teensy thin for a stout but still good.

I lugged this one all the way across the country with me from Portland and resisted it sitting in my fridge until tonight. Beautiful, dark dark dark color. Pours fairly thick with minimal head. Malty, coffeeish aroma. Beautiful taste, a WHOLE lot of malt, some coffee, a faint hint of chocolate and chicory. Dry mouthfeel, but not too dry. Semi-sweet aftertaste. This is a wonderful beer from one of my favorite breweries in the world. Darren does a great job out on the coast, I wish I weren't 3000 miles away now.

22 enjoyed a few weeks back at ditmier's house.... bottle provided by buckeyeboy.. Thanks to Jeremy for the brew and to Eric for hosting.. Poured into my small La Trappe glass.

Nice dark tan head and lace... black brew with a good lasting cap.

Nose is lite chocolate and some caramel ... but pretty much a dry dark maltiness in the aroma.

Flavor is pretty much what I was expecting from such a highly recommended brewery... lite bittersweet chocolate and some background coffee.. descent hop bite but the grains envelope most of it... Body is a bit light for the style especially given the abv. and the carbonation may be a touch high..

Thanks Jeremy... I appreciate the opportunity.. a pretty damn solid beer from a brewery that I almost always overlook.. and a style that I rarely go after.
