2012 bomber poured into a tulip.
Pours pretty darn dark with a nice light brown head.
Lots of dark fruit on the nose. A big roastiness plays along with the dark fruit notes. A slight dark chocolate aroma as well. The licorice, hops and alcohol are detectable and round out the profile nicely.
More big dark fruit and roasty coffee notes. Some yummy dark chocolate. Licorice. The alcohol is there, but it’s not slowing me down as I down this beer.
Oh my god this is heavenly on the tongue. Big, smooth, and creamy. Fairly dry.
One of the best widely available stouts on the market.

Comes out jet black with a finger of brown head that slowly dissipates. Alcohol legs are on full display. On the nose I get roasted grains that lend a coffee aroma, plus charred wood, smoked meat, earthy hops, and some alcohol. The taste has a creamy chocolate quality with black currants, coffee, more of those earthy hops, and an astringent taste from the roasted grains. It feels quite full-bodied in the mouth and goes down velvety.

Got this on tap at the stone brewpub in the San Diego airport since I didn't have time to make it out to the brewery during my trip. Had it for breakfast with the duck confit eggs. Practically perfect stout for me. Licorice aroma, jet black color, nice crisp mouthfeel. Just a great clean stout. Will definitely look for it again.
