look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.5

Purchased at Holiday Wine Cellar, Escondido
Batch 676

A: poured thick and viscous in a pint glass. Beautiful darkness, coco tan head settling to an inch+ and holding briefly as the drink comes to room temp, resting at a nice thin layer. Classic RIS look,

S: creamy chocolate puddling, fully roasted malt, not too smokey and very pleasant on the nose.

T: powdered cocoa-chocolate first on the tongue and a very woody flavor. Nutmeg and some berries, the berry flavor is complex and seems more pronounced the warmer the beer gets. Alcohol is definitely there, heat and not unpleasant for those (like me) that like to know there's a bite. Heat lasts until your next sip.

M: thick and luscious, coats the whole mouth. Perfect for the style.

O: extremely enjoyable. Complex flavor and heat that let's you settle in and sip the night away. This one surprised me and I'm going to the store tomorrow to get more to store for next winter.

4.04/5  rDev -5.6%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

Brewed On date of 6/30/2010, poured from a 16.9oz bottle into a tulip glass.

A: The beer is a deep black color, with a thin light brown head that fades quickly and leaves a thin lace on the glass.

S: The aroma contains roasted malts, chocolate, dark fruit and a touch of hops.

T: The taste starts out with a very hearty roasted malt character followed by sweet flavors of chocolate and dark fruit. Then there’s some alcohol sting that comes in. The hops presence is very mild which is expected in a big stout like this that is nearly 4 years old. There’s still a good balance since the sweetness doesn’t over-power the beer. The after-taste is slightly sweet.

M: Smooth and a little crisp but quite viscous, medium body, light carbonation (due to the age), finish is slightly sticky.

O: Tasty, goes down easily, not too filling, strong kick, good representation of style, I have sampled this beer fresh and it was much better than what I’m drinking now. However, while it might seem a little past its prime, I’ll allot for some possible storage deficiencies and say that it’s still pretty good.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

A strong, dark tan head fills up the glass, fading in it's own good time. Guess the color here...it's black!

Rich, ripened dark fruits (plum, raspberry, prune and cherry) flow powerful to the nose, followed by dark bread, faint notes of vinegar and a vein of molasses. Complex and promising.

Tastes dark and roasty with a caramel sweetened middle backed up by sturdy oaken notes. A licorice smoothness takes over after a quick hit of fusel alcohol rises. A heavy sipper of course, but honed enough to avoid unneeded weight.

The complexity of this brew resides throughout, and results in a fully realized stout that lives up to it's name.
