12 oz can poured into a Blind Tiger Brewery snifter glass. Canned on date of 09/28/2012. “Fig old Bidys.”

Appearance: Pours a finger of mocha colored head which slowly dissipates to a film/ring and leaves sticky clumps of lacing. Slow as molasses. Striking shiny ink black body. It almost looked like clumps were being poured out of the can.

Aroma: Lots of roasted dark malts. Smells papery/cardboardish. Some sweet stone fruit and alcohol. Brings to mind chocolate powder and cold chocolate milk.

Taste: Massive amounts of smooth roasted malts fading into a nice chocolate/coffee taste. More of the papery notes. Slightly smoky, almost savory chocolate. Some leathery raisins. Finishes with an herbal hop bitterness.

Mouthfeel: Huge, thick and heavy. Lots alcohol warmth, almost boozy. Low carbonation for what is one of the better mouthfeels I've had from a stout. Too bad it's so hot.

Overall: A memorable looking stout with a thick, heavy body. The notes of paper/cardboard were not too distracting and were starting to take on some nice nutty chocolate tones not unlike an aged barleywine/old ale. Surprisingly it was boozy and had some residual herbal hop bitterness on the finish.

COD 1/15/14. Pours used motor oil black with a massive head that has excellent retention and lacing. Mild nose of chocolate, roast and a touch of dark fruit over an alcohol base. Full bodied with a thick creamy texture. Below average carbonation level with no effervescence on the finish. The exceptional flavor profile is complex and balanced. It begins with a blend of chocolate and roast, flows into a touch of smoke and dark fruit then finishes with molasses. The finish is quite smooth and leaves you with a pleasant bite of hop bitterness and alcohol.
