Bottle from February '11 release poured into snifter. I believe this was one of the last bottles available, and was not labeled or numbered as a result.
A: Thick, very viscous body, with a half finger of tan head topping of the glass. While head dissipates quickly, a light coating remains behind.
S: Big, thick, and sweet– loads of burnt and roasted malts, coffee, dark chocolate, and walnuts. Very pleasant.
T: Rich flavor at the beginning, there's a bit of an acridity at the beginning reminiscent of both dark fruits and the nuts that show up in the smell. Chocolate, coffee, and roasted malts all show up once again. I'm a bit surprised by how quickly the flavor drops out before the finish.
M: Very smooth but rather thin-bodied compared to how viscous it looked. Light carbonation. Slightly sticky, but the thin, almost watery mouthfeel detracts from the flavor lingering on the finish.
O: Quite an enjoyable beer, though I do wish it was a bit thicker. I like the effect the walnuts have on the beer's flavor. Worth checking out if you get the opportunity.

32 ounce growler filled earlier today at Blacklick Wine and Spirits. Served in a snifter, the beer pours dark brown/black with an inch tan head that stayed around a while. There's also a good amount of lacing. Aroma is nice, the brew smells like roasted malt, bittersweet and milk chocolate, nuts/walnuts, and some dark fruit. The taste is similar to the aroma, but with the addition of some burnt/charred malt and a bit of coffee. Mouthfeel/body is medium/full, it's slick and syrupy with moderate carbonation. I think this is a pretty good stout, next time I'll have to get a 64 ounce growler instead! Definitely worth trying if you come across it somewhere.
