650 mL bottle poured into a snifter. 2011 bottle #183/348.
Appearance - Inky and glass staining stout. Nice. A few wisps on the surface. Love the viscosity.
Smell - Dark bitter chocolate. Nutty, but I'd never identify it as walnuts. Slightly boozy.
Taste - And it's sour. Dammit. Chocolatey and a bit nutty. Definite lactic sourness. Dammit Jackie O's.
Mouthfeel - Nice and viscous. Vinous and sour. Not really intense, but it's enough to ruin it.
Overall - I had high hopes. Why are all their stouts soured like this? Ironically, it's a cleaner sour than their sours.
Edit: Changed the numbers based on an unshitty 2013 bottle.

Poured from a growler into a tulip
A: Pitch black with a 1/2-finger head
S: Chocolate, roasted malts and coffee
T: Matches the nose, adding a bit of fruit esters. The coffee and chocolate are particularly bold. Integrated and balanced
M: Full-bodied and balanced
O: A delicious stout, recommended if you can find it
Also, I took the advice of the reviewer below me and sipped this on a warm summer morning - definitely recommended

Pours an inky black with just a wisp of off white head. Leaves thick legs on the snifter.
Smells of coffee, dark roasty malts, mild bitter chocolate, mixed dark fruits and just a hint of citrus.
Taste is spot onto the smell. Rich and lush with a lingering aftertaste that just won't go away. Nicely sweet yet dark enough to balance itself out. Not at all dry, almost milky.
Creamy and dense, it lingers for quite a while. Overall an excellent stout, insanely easy to sip on a cool summer night....hell, I could sip this one on a hot summer morning. Highly recommended if you can get it.
