reviewing the '09
pours an oily, pitch black with light turd brown foam which settles quickly into a very even half finger of head which leaves thick, solid lacing.
smell: smokey, with a powerful note of roasted granola.
taste: much more smokey, kinda wood-chippy with a dry chocolate finish. nice alcohol tinge in the aftertaste.
mouthfeel: goes down easily enough, but leaves a dry mouthroof and a syrupy throat.
drinkability: this one is a sipper, very full flavored and intense. if youre not experienced with this bad boy, take it slow.
Serving type: can

Poured from the 12oz. can into a snifter.
This amazing brew purs a deep, inky and oily black with about a one-finger head that fades into some lingering foam around the egde. Only a bit of spotty lacing.
The aroma is roasty malt -- the darkest of dark chocolate, roast coffee, rich black tea. There are also notes of dark dried fruit .
The taste is an assault on the tongue. Intense. Chocolate, a bit of sweet toffee and raising and then big, bitter dark chocolate. The lingering, drying bitter note on the tongue has hints of more chocolate and roast coffee and malty Assam tea.
The mouthfeel is creamy and sticky with a bit of carbonation as well.
Overall, just wow. This beer does not disappoint. One of the best stouts I've tasted.
