A little sad to see this one leave the collection, but I suppose International Stout Day is the day to do it.

A: Pours a viscous looking dark chocolate color with a thin tan head. The head dissipates pretty quickly. No real signs of lace.

S: Raisin skin, port wine, whiskey, chocolate, vanilla, charred oak and some fudge. Raisin is a bit too strong for me in here, but I like the depth.

T: Opens velvety and chocolatey with a whiskey lacing and a touch of alcohol that warms with each sip. Hints of dark fruit, charred wood, plum, cola and rye bread. (554 characters)

Sent by Romulux, thanks as always!

This is the 100% Rye version I believe. Looks the part, dark brown with a lingering ring for head/retention. Roast and malt in the aroma, possibly some spice. Not much of a -bal presence here. Drinks roasty, bitter chocolaty with a good presence of oak but again, muted -bals. Mouthfeel seems a little thin, the beer a little overcarbonated. Overall it's not bad but doesn't stand out.

Thanks to Anthony for sharing.

Pours black in color with a small tan head. Bourbon, vanilla, and oak aromas. A decent amount of chocolate, quite a bit of roasted malt, and maybe some booze. The flavor is a bit roasty and heavy on the oak for my tastes. Bourbon, vanilla, and some cocoa powder. A little bit of alcohol heat, too. (331 characters)
