Come on, it is a stout that makes all others bow to it. One of the best beers, no matter what style , ever brewed and drank in my opinion. Oh yeah....
22 once bottle bought in a 12 pack at a distributor in Pittsburgh, PA (we can not buy beer in supermarkets, gas stations, ect., there are dedicated distributors for beer).
taste - slight chocolate with a overtone of mussels (maybe it is just me)?
appearance - black beauty with fine carbonation that lingers around with an agresive pour into a 20 ounce Guinness glass.
mouthfeel - wants more, smooth and delicious with the carbonation lacing nicely on the glass and the teeth, I suppose.
smell - chocolate, cofffee-ish (a made a new word) excellence that dissapates slowly and enhances the subtle tones of seafood (again, maybe it is me).
drinkability- at $66.00 a case this is a bargain in my mind....Chimay brand can have it's $150.00 a case nose into the air but must look at the kid kicking it in the shins...enjoy

Thanks to BuckeyeNation for this quote: "I will make it a felony to drink small beer"
-King Henry VI, part II (act iv, scene ii)
A: Black, heavy without highlights, abundant dark tan, rocky head, not so much lacing.
S: Hoppy stout, ala Boris. Serious char, wood, chocolate, latte.
T: Taste is intense. Espresso like with hops. Grass, hay, wood, charcoal, coffee. wine-like. This is a great stout with great intensity. meditation beer.
MF: Creamy, dense, woody, flinty, good feel. Not as oily as TedFidy, similar to Boris, Narwhal.
One of my favorites. (But I love hoppy stouts). Best from Rogue.
