Bottled 11/06/12, consumed 11/19/13

A: An opaque void, black as night with a quickly-dissipating mocha head that leaves lace sticking everywhere; pretty glorious

S: A bit weak on the nose, but the goods come through: chocolate, coffee, a healthy dose of roasted hops.

T: The year spent aging has added some complexity to this brew, methinks. Dark chocolate up front, malts and coffee in the rear, with a pleasant bitterness left lingering on the palate. I'm definitely getting dark fruits and possibly even a hint of licorice. The coffee wipes the palate clean before I can dwell on the complexities. Quite good!

M: Not as thick as other "double stouts." On the lighter end of full-bodied with some small stinging carbonation bubbles.

O: I picked this guy up six months ago and thought, heck with it, I'mma sit on it another 6 months because, why not. Point is, I don't have a fresher sample to compare side by side. Reading some of the other reviews, I do think a year in the cellar did this guy some good. Overall, a good, borderline great stout, but far from my favorite.

A: Black body with a grey-brown head.

S: Fudge, sherbet and floral hops. Strawberry is present later on.

T: Crickey! It's harsh at first. It's slightly sweet with a very bitter bite. It's smokey, ever so slightly earthy and there's a wee bit of liquorice. Lemonade/Sprite in the aftertaste.

O: Some nice concentrated flavours but it's not the most refined strong stout out there.

Double stout pours a black color with a large tan lacing head. The aroma is full of licorice and coffee notes. The taste has a mellow boozy undertone, with black licorice, mixed in with creamy coffee notes. Great body, great full flavors. Overall a very bold and flavorful stout.
