On tap at the Brewpub. Served in a snifter.

Appearance - Black body. Nice khaki head. Some lacing and sugary legs. Thin collar.

Smell - Dark chocolate. Coffee. Lactose. Caramel.

Taste - Chocolate up front. Lactose is strong. A bit of a twang from it. Fruity licorice flavors. Doesn't taste like a stout.

Mouthfeel - Medium light for a stout. Sweet but not syrupy.

Overall - Different kind of stout. I suspect a Belgian yeast strain.

Thanks to Sonny for giving me the bottle. Split 3 ways at a tasting. Full notes taken at time on IPad.

A- Poured to a tulip and chalice with a pitch black body. Dark mocha tan head rises to about a half finger high with a creamy texture. Falls fairly quickly to a small, frothy ring that leaves nice spotty lace all over the glass, like a leopard.

S- Not much stout things happening here. Lots of fruit in the aroma, ranges from apples to figs and slightly tart cherry. Something like a Scotch with the fruits, hard to put a finger on it. Roast malts and cocoa take a back seat.

T- Sweets and fruit lead the way in the flavor. Cherries, plums, apples, figs and raisins come to mind and it reminds me a bit of ferment off flavors I got in my homebrew stouts. Dark cocoa, roast grains and some caramel back that up. Something like a barrel, just unsure of what's going on, tart twinge too.

MF- Medium bodied, maybe even a bit light for the aim with a somewhat watery texture. Carbonation on the lower side and it only seems to accentuate the fruity strangeness.

Strange fruitiness pretty much dominates the flavor and aroma and reminds me of homebrews in a way. Decent cocoa and roast but the fruits destroy.
