Stopped by the brewery today to see what the hub bub was all about. Uber small operation with that's only open for a few hours on Sundays. I was pretty surprised to see the place packed when I walked in with a decent line waiting for growler fills. Steve has 4 lines, but one was down and another (Galaxy APA) was having carbonation issues so they weren't doing growler fills anymore for the day. I was pleased to see that this brew was up since earlier in the day, this was the "on deck" beer. After a small sample, I nabbed a 32oz fill and headed on my way. brought home and enjoyed from a TB 22oz snifter.

a - brew poured a lush jet black with two fingers of dark tan cream colored head that bubbled down to a finger quickly, but left a nice thick layer of head that had some decent retention.

s - nose is very creamy milk chocolate with soft hints of vanilla and an even softer glazing of roasted malt. kind of hot chocolate smelling, but in a subtle way.

t - a big gulp leads with the chocolate but is quickly washed over with a strong char and finishes with some stale coffee and even soft notes of coconut and some vanilla to smooth out the edges. As the beer warmed, coconut came out in a big way...which i am not a huge fan of in general, but it wasn't to intense to ruin the beer for me.

m - mouth is fairly cooling and has a char that coats the mouth...reminiscent of some stouty porters, i guess you could say that this is a portery stout? fairly light bodied for the style and silky.

o - overall, a nice RIS. not mind blowing, but certainly above par. the small brewery was packed with folks eager to try some of LI's newest brewery so I didn't get a chance to chat with steve about the beer, but someone in line mentioned to me that this was aged in oak...which i can definitely believe since it is so light and fairly crisp for typically such a heavy style...but i'm not certain if it was in fact aged in oak or some other wood. in the few minutes i was there getting my fills, steve did mention that there were only 2 kegs of this beer and after that, it is gone until they brew more and sounds like they have a lot planned so not sure if/when this one will resurface so get it while you can. i'm eager to see what else comes from this brewery.
