Bomber poured into nonic. Deep black with foamy brown head that holds its form throughout the drink. Smells of roasted malts, espresso, chocolate, oak, and vanilla. Flavors are coffee-infused unsweetened brownies, dark fruits, oak, vanilla, and late hop bitterness. Medium-full bodied, creamy, active soft carbonation, and a crisp finish.

From a bottle, not sure how freshly bottled.

Crap, I'm doing this from notes but I am just not remembering the experience. My notes say it was good.

It had a big brown, lumpy, foamy head. The aroma was big and good and had a coffee overtone.

The taste had a nice roasty side. It was not very bitter nor was it boozy. The finish was clean.

I wish I could remember the experience better! I will need to buy another bottle since my notes tell me I should. Like a yeti, I can't even find a photo in my usual beer portraits.

Not a big stout fan but this one was probably my favorite.

O! M! G!

Appearance: You wanna talk dark... don't think I've ever seen a beer as dark as this. Even the head is dark- a rather dark brown.
Smell: Usually, when I read about the wood in which a beer is aged, I almost have to take their word for it. But, with this beer, I actually *smelled* the oak. Very impressive.
Taste: And the hits just keep on coming. Incredibly rich, malty backbone, with just the littlest bit of hops hanging around. I even taste a bit of chocolate.
Mouthfeel: It's almost creamy.

Do you get the impression that I loved this beer?
