Poured into a Funky Buddha Brewery snifter. Bottleneck says 303-13.

A- Pours an impenetrable black color with a 1/4 inch brown head that immediately vanishes leaving a thick ring around the edge of the glass and a small center patch of surface foam. Semi-resilient lacing leaves a jagged ring behind.

S- Lots of milk chocolaty goodness with some caramel and vanilla thrown in for good measure. A little nutty too.

T- Smells a lot better than it tastes as there's a brush of roast and then an abrupt metallic flavor that kind of kills the party. Alcohol is decently well-hidden. The roast creeps in more and more with each sip bringing notes of dark chocolate. Minimal sweetness.

M- Thick, robust, medium-low carbonation and a full body. Once the sediment in the bottle retained from the initial pour (and boy there was a lot of it) is introduced, the mouthfeel becomes more creamy.

O- I wish this beer had more elements of the aroma in the flavor as it smells wonderful but the taste leaves a bit to be desired. Still it's drinkable enough and there's nothing necessarily wrong with it. Just feel like it could be so much better.

A: Oily black with no light coming trough. The head is massive - it almost overfilled my glass. It is easily 2 1/2 fingers of dense tan foam.

S: Sweet and roasted malts - chocolate and vanilla. Very pleasant combination of smells.

T: I get a lot of smoke. It is not bad - I just wasn't expecting it based on the nose or the description. There is subtle sweetness and hints of bitter coffee.

M: A little thin and less coating that expected. No noticeable carbonation.

O: Based on the Appearance and Nose I expected big things. The taste was way off the nose - and not really in a good way. I am desperately sipping and hoping for hints of chocolate and more coffee - but I am just getting smoke. There are other stouts in this series from Dark Horse - I have them and will try them. I *think* there is one that is a smoked porter - I can't imagine something smokier than this!
