Bottle: Poured a pitch-black color ale with a large foamy head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma of roasted malt with light dry coffee, black chocolate and some very subtle peppers notes. Taste is also a mix of peppers, dry coffee with some black chocolates and some dry coffee notes. Body is about average for style with good carbonation and no apparent alcohol. Very enjoyable stout with plenty of flavours that are well balanced. I think a bit more pronounced peppers notes would have made things more interesting.

2012 vintage

a - poured flat. no head with just the slightest ring of lace. body was dark black.
s - coffee aromas with a hint of alcohol.
t - coffee with a spicy finish. slightly boozy.
m - thin and dull. no carbonation to speak of.
o - i had high hopes for this beer and think there was something there but this beer was about as flat as can be which really messed up the experience.
