341 mL screw top bottle in a cute cardboard tube. 2009 vintage.

Pours a thick, opaque, still near black, chocolate color with a thin, quickly fading mocha head. Nose of smoke, espresso, roast malt, ash, oak, mild bourbon sweetness and dark chocolate. Flavor has a mild dry, acrid bitterness thoughout, like an old cup of bad coffee. Not bad, just gives the stout a unique smokey dry finish. The smoke and dry wood provides a strong balance to the sweeter flavors, molasses and dark chocolate, light oat and brown sugar. Chewy, medium thick body with soft carbonation. A respectable, subtle BA RIS that would probably be better enjoyed fresh.

Ink. Oily black with a big, creamy tan head. Good head retention.

Wonderful aroma. Rounded. Liquorice. Roast and bitter chocolate. Some alcohol. Nothing over the top but really well composed and well integrated.

Rich. Not too sweet but clearly big with lots of roast and chocolate. The liquorice is not over the top and works well. Mild alcohol. Very nice.

A touch chalky before a rounded creaminess comes through. Moderate carbonation works well.

A delightful beer. Big and bold but refined at the same time.
