The Stout poured a pitch black with a substantial tan head. The aroma was full of roasted malts and maybe a trace of hops. The taste was deep and complex with layers of nuttiness, chocolate and coffee undertones and more of the roasted malt flavor. For such a foreboding brew it had a medium body that I found to be easy to drink despite the full flavor profile that enveloped my palate. This was a great stout that I could drink regularly.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

12oz bottle poured into a large snifter. No bottling date to be found, but this bottle has been cellared for over a year.

A: Pours deep black. The coffee colored head settles very quickly. Wispy, jagged lines of lacing.

S: Heavy roast and char, lots of soot. Black cocoa powder and dry chocolate cake. Hopping is still very apparent even after a year in the bottle. Aggressive green and spicy hop scents, earthy wet leaves. Plum and black currant if one strains. French roast.

T: Creamed coffee, chocolate cake and brownies. The more heavily roasted malt tastes creep in with flavors of burnt crust, charcoal, and smoke. The hops have smoothed out more than the nose let on. they take on a supporting role and lend flavors of earthy leaves and mild pine needles. Plum and black currant lie deeply buried. Touch of warming alcohol. Finishes with dry chocolate cake and a touch of smoke.

M: Thick in body, though not all that weighty. Very whipped and airy in texture, delightfully creamy. Little carbonation. Prick of warming alcohol. Slight astringency. Smooth.

O: This is a very bold beer when consumed fresh. Time mellowed out the bite of the hops significantly, and the alcohol is now an afterthought. The texture in particular made this beer a delight to sip.
