12oz bottle (VINTAGE08AA) poured into a Portsmouth goblet. Received in a trade with BeerLovinGrl - thanks Chrissy!
A - Pours an oily black, totally opaque with a thin, fizzy, soda-like head that disappears immediately. A few straggling bubbles around the edges is all that remains.
S - Deeply roasted aromas, strong coffee, dark chocolate, burnt aromas. Smells really good and inviting.
T - Coffee, licorice, and really dark chocolate. A little bit of astringency comes thru and some alcohol flavor present too.
M - Very smooth and oily. Carbonation is low - just enough to know it's there, but doesn't interfere.
D - Very smooth beer. Lots of rich flavors. If it wasn't for the astringency, this would be a really easy drinker. Just that little bit of pucker it gives holds it back for me. But overall, a very good beer.

Bottle shared by Curran. Thanks man!
Pours a thin looking watery black, with a small quarter inch head, and not much lacing.
Smells incredibly strongly of nutty roasted coffee, with roasted malt, and baker's chocolate.
This has one of the strongest coffee flavors in a stout that I've ever had, but it's also nicely integrated, as well. Creamy chocolate and vanilla flavor- slightly bitter chocolate chip flavor, with Hershey's syrup, a cookies and cream flavor, and a very small amount of hop bitterness.
This one is medium bodied, but I wish it was a little thicker. Low carbonation, creamy, very smooth mouthfeel.
A real classic that I'm glad I'm finally getting to try for the 1st time.
